Joe Biden endorsed by former 2020 Democratic hopeful Cory Booker as party lines up behind vice president – The Sun

SENATOR Cory Booker has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

Booker — who dropped out of the 2020 race himself in January — announced his decision this morning.

"The answer to hatred & division is to reignite our spirit of common purpose," the New Jersey senator tweeted.

"@JoeBiden won’t only win – he’ll show there's more that unites us than divides us."

Booker said he believes Biden will "restore honor to the Oval Office and tackle our most pressing challenges."

"That’s why I’m proud to endorse Joe," he concluded.

Booker ending his campaign for the Democratic nomination in January after launching it in February 2019.

His endorsement of Biden comes roughly a day after Sen. Kamala Harris, of California, also proclaimed her support for the former vice president.

Both senators are scheduled to appear with Biden at his "Get Out the Vote" event in Detroit, Michigan tonight.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who ran a three-month campaign for president, also recently announced his support for Biden.

They're the latest in a slew of Democrats who have publicly backed Biden after suspending their own presidential campaigns.

Booker dropped his own bid for the nomination earlier this year after low polling and financial struggles.

His campaign of love and unity didn't win him enough support to make debates.

The 50-year-old served as the mayor of Newark, New Jersey from 2006 to 2013.

Democrats are looking to Michigan, where voters will head to the polls to vote in the state's primary tomorrow.

Others states are holding primaries on Tuesday, including Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota and Washington state.
