U.S. House Of Representatives Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, has joined the list of top Democrats endorsing Joe Biden for the next president of the nation.
Pelosi’s endorsement of the Democratic presidential candidate means she has joined U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, former president Barack Obama, and former vice president Al Gore. All these high-profile people already showed their support for Biden earlier this month.
On Monday, Pelosi released a video statement citing Biden’s experience in government and his role in passing the Affordable Care Act as proof of his leadership qualities. Pelosi added that Biden is looking good to lead the country amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In her endorsement, Pelosi said, “As we face coronavirus, Joe has been a voice of reason and resilience, with a clear path to lead us out of this crisis.”
There could not have been a better time for this endorsement to come, as Biden has been struggling to keep the momentum going during the COVID-19 pandemic that he had built up in his rapid run toward becoming the Democratic nominee.
Besides high-profile Democratic leaders, Washington state Governor Jay Inslee, a prominent climate change campaigner, and the 400,000-member United Auto Workers union have also endorsed Biden for the upcoming presidential election.
These endorsements have once again made a buzz for Biden at a time when all campaigns are put on hold due to COVID-19. It has given Biden an advantage in front of U.S. President Donald Trump, who is all over the news these days with his combative White House briefings.
