Today, I’m proud to endorse @JoeBiden for President. Joe is the best candidate to unite our country and move us past a presidency that has sought to divide us based on what we look like, what we believe, or who we love. He’s ready to lead and he’ll do it with passion and empathy. pic.twitter.com/UxZmN1BEDB
