Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden arrived in Tampa, Florida yesterday and paused to wave at a group of nearby firefighters as he descended down the stairs of his jet on the tarmac.

WATCH: Biden Points and Waves To An EMPTY FIELD As He Arrives In Tampa, Florida - News Punch

Biden’s trip to Florida was his first as the Democratic presidential nominee, as he faces a tight race in the state and a challenge winning support among Latino voters that are increasingly moving away from the Democrat Party.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Biden had waved to an empty field. This was based on a shortened version of the video above, that omitted footage of the firefighters standing in the direction where Biden was waving.

We have therefore corrected the headline and retracted the incorrect part of the story.
