WASHINGTON — Joe Biden picked up the endorsement of New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, one day after receiving the backing of another former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, California Sen. Kamala Harris.
“The answer to hatred & division is to reignite our spirit of common purpose,” Booker said on Twitter on Monday morning. “@JoeBiden won’t only win — he’ll show there’s more that unites us than divides us. He’ll restore honor to the Oval Office and tackle our most pressing challenges.”
Booker’s endorsement comes one day after Harris endorsed Biden, giving the former vice president the backing of the two most prominent African-American candidates in his race for the party’s nomination. That race has narrowed down to a contest with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and includes a crucial primary in Michigan on Tuesday.
