U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen joined former Sen. Barbara Mikulski in endorsing Democratic candidate Joe Biden on Thursday in his run for the presidency.
In a news release, the three Marylanders touted Biden as a steady hand during unsteady times. Cardin wrote that the country needs a leader “who trusts experts and sciences and puts the health and welfare of our country before himself.”
Wrote Van Hollen: “As our nation battles the coronavirus and its painful economic fallout, there is no one better prepared to lead America out of this crisis and into a brighter future.”
During the early months of the campaign in 2019, Cardin and Van Hollen made a point not to endorse any of the Democratic primary candidates.
As for Mikulski, she wrote that Biden “knows how to build the teams and alliances — at home and around the world — we need to get the job done."
“He brings experience and empathy. He will fight to make sure that America not only goes back to work, but that America works for every American,” Mikulski wrote.
