These Three Senators Just Endorsed Joe Biden

Three senators have endorsed Joe Biden in the hours after his campaign kicked off. Given the time that Biden has had to prepare for the rollout of his candidacy, there should be a coordinated surge of endorsement and donations designed to affirm Biden’s frontrunner status and assuage concerns that the old, white Democrat is not woke enough for today’s Democratic Party.

The Hill reports that Chris Coons and Bob Casey, Biden’s home state senators from Delaware, quickly stepped up to announce their support for the former vice president. The third endorsement came from freshman Alabama Democrat Doug Jones. Jones, a moderate Democrat who won the seat of Jeff Sessions, is facing his own re-election battle in a deep red state, would benefit from having a moderate candidate at the top of the Democratic ticket.

In a tweet, Jones said, “The quality that makes Joe stand out is his ability to bring people together to find common ground while standing up for what he believes is right. We need to listen to each other and get things done for working people.”

Biden, who spent 36 years in the Senate and eight years as vice president, should have an impressive amount of support among Democratic insiders. If Democratic officials fail to rally around Biden with endorsements and activists fail to welcome his candidacy with contributions that rival the earnings of Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke, it could be an early sign that Joe Biden’s third presidential campaign is about to fizzle.

Competing against a pack of relative unknowns and radicals, however, Biden’s chances are good as long as he can avoid crippling gaffes. With a large number of candidates on the extreme left wing competing for the woke vote, Biden is the only well-known moderate in the race and stands to benefit from the largely silent faction Democratic moderates such as blue-collar, union Democrats. The 2020 Democratic primary may be the reverse of the 2016 Republican primary in which traditional Republicans split the vote and allowed Donald Trump to win the nomination without majority support.
