A Republican 2024 presidential candidate has flown a banner over Democrat President Joe Biden’s Delaware beach house with a message regarding his son.
A pro-Francis Suarez super PAC hired a low-flying propeller plane to display a “Prosecute Hunter Biden” banner.
The plane was flown over the beaches of North Shore and Dewey Beach in Delaware on Friday, according to the New York Post.

Joe Biden’s lavish Rehoboth Beach “Summer White House” is located right in the middle of the plane’s flight route.
However, it wasn’t clear whether the stunt was intended to send a message to Biden while he was at the beach home or to simply advertise Suarez’s agenda.
President Biden, who has frequently departed the White House for getaways in the resort community, wasn’t home at the time.

Biden plans to cut short yet another vacation, this time to Nevada’s Lake Tahoe, to visit the island of Maui in Hawaii after devastating wildfires killed more than 100 people in the community, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
There’s no indication that Hunter Biden was staying at his father’s house, either.
The Bidens bought the Delaware beach house in 2017 for $2.7 million.
By March 2021, it had increased in value to $3.4 million, Forbes reported at that time.
Zillow now estimates the value to be in the region of $4.8 million.
A super PAC supporting Miami, Florida, Mayor Suarez was behind the banner-plane stunt, according to the Post.

The pro-Suarez SOS America PAC had promised to conduct the stunt if 1,000 donors contributed to the organization, the Post reported.
Suarez — considered by some to be a long-shot candidate for the Republican presidential nomination — claimed he had met the official criteria required to qualify for the party’s first debate in a Friday tweet.
I am excited to announce that I have met all of the criteria to qualify for the @GOP’s first primary debate.
While our campaign only began a few weeks ago, I am humbled knowing that Republicans from all fifty states have donated to our campaign—nearly 50,000 thus far.
Now, I… pic.twitter.com/VNBGVvJ77N

Federal prosecutors moved to dismiss a tax-fraud charge against the younger Biden earlier this month, according to Fox News.
The development came after a judge declined to accept Biden’s sweetheart plea deal for tax and gun charges.
