National News

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland man has been charged with making death threats against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and running mate U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris in a letter left on the doorstep of a neighbor who had yard signs supporting the candidates.

A U.S. Secret Service agent says 42-year-old James Dale Reed told investigators that he was “upset at the political situation” when he wrote the threatening letter.

Reed was in state custody when a criminal complaint was filed against him Wednesday in federal court.

The neighbor told investigators that he didn’t know the Frederick man but had several yard signs supporting Biden and Harris.
