Does President Biden need to visit the Commonwealth?

NPR reports that President Joe Biden recently mentioned the 2017 racial tension in Charlottesville Virginia and some locals say he speaks of that which he has not experienced. In other words, Biden has not been to the city since the Neo Nazi's were chanting "Jews will not replace us" and Heather Hayer lost her life.

At the time Biden said the following: "In that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime," Biden says in his 2019 video announcing his run for president.

Will a visit now still have an impact?

What he did not do 6 years ago was visit the Commonwealth in person. Former educator Carla Hunt said "If that made an impact on him ... he said that was one of the reasons he ran, then why wouldn't you? I mean that would be something you do,"

Student Amy Little said Biden "absolutely" should visit Charlottesville and added. "I think there's a certain gravity in coming and seeing where those things happen and really kind of getting a sense and breathing the air and seeing the sites,"

What do you think Virginians? Has the window of opportunity for President Joe Biden to make an impact closed or should he still make a trip to Charlottesville, Virginia?
