After Bernie Sanders quit the Presidential race, the former Vice President is receiving endorsements from every corner of the political spectrum. Recently, both Bernie and Barack Obama have announced their support to Joe Biden. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is the latest one to join the bandwagon. Joe Manchin announced his endorsement to Biden, putting rest to all the speculation that he might not support the Democratic presidential nominee this time. In an interview on Thursday, conservative West Virginia Democrat said that he’s working in tandem with Biden to come up with a plan to help his state from job losses.
Joe Manchin has a long history of not supporting Democratic candidates. He didn’t support President Barack Obama back in 2012 and nearly pulled off his endorsement to Hillary Clinton in 2016 after she said she’d put coal miners out of work. However, this time it’s a different story for Manchin, he has been in talks with Biden since he won the South Carolina primary. Manchin said - “I feel comfortable with Biden and his outreach to Appalachia, where energy jobs play a vital part in the economy and politics. I’m just making sure that we work through a plan. I’ve been working and talking to different people. We are definitely reaching the final goal. You just can’t leave people behind who worked very hard, whether it’s producing coal or energy for our country. These people need to have the option to live their lives. And I think Biden understands that very well.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren also announced her endorsement to Joe Biden through a video stream. She said - “Biden grew up on the ragged edge of the middle class in Scranton. He committed to public service early in life and never stopped serving. Biden faced unspeakable tragedy with courage and grace. These experiences animate the empathy he extends to Americans who are struggling no matter what their story. Empathy matters, and in this moment of crisis, it is more important than ever that the next President restores America’s faith in good effective government. Joe Biden has spent nearly his entire life in public service. He knows that a government which runs with integrity, competence, and heart will save lives and livelihoods. More importantly, we can’t afford to let Donald Trump continue to endanger the lives and livelihoods of every American. That’s why I’m proud to endorse Joe Biden as President of the United States.”
