Harry Reid endorses Joe Biden for Democratic nominee


Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary.

“President Donald Trump has done unspeakable damage to our country, our institutions and the rule of law. Democrats need a candidate who can assemble the largest, most diverse coalition possible to defeat Trump and lead our country following the trauma of Trump’s presidency,” Reid said in a statement. “That candidate is Joe Biden.”

The move comes immediately after Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) announced she was dropping her 2020 presidential bid and reportedly planned to endorse Biden.
