Joe Biden has been racking up the endorsements something fierce lately. Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Senator Amy Klobuchar. Senator Kamala Harris. Senator Cory Booker. This morning he got a surprise endorsement from Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. Now Biden has picked up another influential endorsement.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand ran against Joe Biden for president in the 2020 race, but now she’s endorsing him:
I’m proud to endorse @JoeBiden today. Our country needs a president who will provide steady, honest leadership, and I believe Joe has the right experience, empathy, and character to lead. I’m excited to help him defeat Donald Trump in November.
