Obama FINALLY Endorses Joe Biden For President!!

Publish date:

It's happened -- former POTUS Barack Obama has officially endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden the week after Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race.

Biden is now the last man standing.

"If there's one thing we've learned as a country from moments of great crisis, it's that the spirit of looking out for one another can't be restricted to our homes, or our workplaces, or our neighborhoods, or our houses of worship," Obama said in the video posted to his Twitter account. "It also has to be reflected in our national government."

He continues: "The kind of leadership that's guided by knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace -- that kind of leadership doesn't just belong in our state capitols and mayors offices. It belongs in the White House."

When Biden first announced that he was running for president, many were surprised when Obama did not immediately endorse him. The endorsement should help him win over more Democratic voters.

Sanders also endorsed him on Tuesday.
