    Joe Biden Meets His "Number-One Superfan"

    She has one question: "Are you going to run?"


    Biden meets patrons of the Landmark Restaurant in Cleveland.

    Vice President Joe Biden stopped in on Landmark Restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday for a final trip to Ohio before polls close.

    There, according to the pool report, he met "The Number-One Biden Superfan" Twana Matthews.

    Their exchange:

    Then, VP walks to a longer table with about 6 or 7 people, including what TV pooler Carrie Dann of NBC accurately describes as the number one Biden superfan, Twana Matthews. She says how thrilled she was to meet him, and proudly announces her full name, as well as "my fiance Andre." Per VP staff, full name Andre McCray.

    "This looks like a power table," VP says.

    Matthews tells VP she voted for him first thing, 6:30am. "You know 6:30 votes count more than 8:30 votes!" VP jokes.

    They take a picture. Matthews struggling to contain excitement.

    Another woman introduces her family, I believe she was Andre's mom.

    "I'm going to ask you one question, Mr. Biden. After Obama wins this election are you going to run?"

    "Oh, I'm going to go back home and run for county council or something," VP responds.

    "You want some of my food?" Matthews asks. "That's a generous woman." VP responds.

    He then introduces the Biden women. Matthews wants to take a picture with them now. And VP takes it on her smartphone.

    She then asks the women if they want some of her food too. Dr. Biden politely declines, says they're ordering something.

    VP then says to fiance Andre: "You've got your hands full. You are a lucky man. We both married up."

    As VP moves on, Matthews cheers: "Biden! Biden!"
