Senator Wayne Fontana Statement on Endorsement of Joe Biden

March 9, 2020

The time has come to unite behind Joe Biden’s campaign to become President of the United States.

Vice President Biden’s vast experience, proven ability to build relationships at home and throughout the world, his instincts to find consensus to move policies forward and his unmatched compassion and empathy for people from all circumstances are compelling enough reasons to support his candidacy. At this moment in time, at this critical juncture in our nation’s story, I believe he is the person best suited to restore America as the most admired and respected country in the world.

Vice President Biden has already begun to build a coalition of present and future leaders, which will provide a much needed multi-generational, progressive approach to the issues of our time. Through the establishment of the diverse government he has promised, he will work to advance policies that are vital for our future as a world leader.

From ensuring quality health care for all citizens to working to lower prescription drug costs, from providing a quality education for all students to reopening the door for our dreamers, from leading the fight on reasonable gun reform to fighting back and implementing policies on the existential crisis of our time, climate change, Joe Biden is the person for the job.

With Vice President Biden at the top of the ticket in November, our party is better suited to expand the majority in the House of Representatives and to take the majority in the Senate. He has the ability to attract support from all ages, backgrounds and political affiliation. This is why I emphatically endorse Joe Biden for President.
