BALTIMORE, MD –
Reports surfaced Monday (April 13) that Senator Bernie Sanders has endorsed Vice President Joe Biden for President.
“We need you in the White House. I will do all that I can to see that that happens, Joe,” Sanders shared on Biden’s campaign stream. “It’s no great secret out there, Joe, that you and I have our differences, and we’re not going to paper them over. That’s real,” Sanders continued.
“But I hope that these task forces will come together utilizing the best minds and people in your campaign and in my campaign to work out real solutions to these very, very important problems.”
He’s right. This is what I was alluding to in last week’s piece; now that Democrats are down to one candidate, forces can unite to take the White House. I’m not saying that it’s impossible otherwise, but it’s a lot easier when things are done together. Now the issue will be getting Bernie supporters to get behind Joe Biden as the two have been known to battle for years.
Biden is happy to have Sanders’ endorsement and expect great things to come from it. “I think that your endorsement means a great deal,” Biden shared. “It means a great deal to me. I think people are going to be surprised that we are apart on some issues but we’re awfully close on a whole bunch of others. I’m going to need you — not just to win the campaign, but to govern. You don’t get enough credit, Bernie, for being the voice that forces us to take a hard look in the mirror and ask ourselves if we’ve done enough, and we haven’t,” Biden said.
As of right now, the 2020 election will happen on schedule. Tuesday, November 3rd is the 2020 election date.
