Biden, riding endorsement wave, looks to end Sanders' White House hopes in Michigan
Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, who is seeking to deliver a knockout blow to rival Bernie Sanders on Tuesday as six states vote, received another boost on Monday when former presidential hopeful Cory Booker endorsed his campaign.
The U.S. senator from New Jersey, who ended his own White House bid in January, wrote on Twitter that Biden would “restore honor to the Oval Office.”
Booker’s endorsement - one day after another onetime candidate, Senator Kamala Harris of California also backed the former vice president - means Biden has picked up the backing of two black former presidential contenders as he seeks the party’s nomination to take on Republican President Donald Trump this fall.
