Elizabeth Warren has endorsed Joe Biden for US president as the Democratic Party coalesces around their nominee .
This comes after Bernie Sanders and Barrack Obama similarly endorsed Biden on Monday and Tuesday respectively.
Warren, in a video post announcing her support on Wednesday, said ‘We’re all in this together now,’ as she emphasized Biden’s empathy, contrasting his leadership style to that of President Donald Trump’s.
‘Empathy matters,’ she said.
Warren, who dropped out of the Democratic presidential race last month, held off on endorsing Biden as he (Biden) and Sanders fought it out.
But now that she has given the former US vice president her blessing and Sanders endorsing him, Biden has two of the most prominent liberals in the party at his side.
In her nearly four-minute video, she touted Biden’s accomplishments during the Obama administration – her voice speaking over images of the former vice president at work.
She also made an appeal to liberals, who have been wary about having Biden, a moderate, as their standard bearer.
Warren said: “Among all the other candidates I competed with in the Democratic primary there is no one I agreed with 100 per cent of the time, but one thing I appreciate about Joe Biden is that he always tells you where he stands. When you disagree he’ll listen and not just listen but hear you. He will treat you with respect.”
She also pointed out that Biden – who endorsed her bankruptcy plan – can be persuaded to other points of view.
‘He’s shown throughout this campaign that if you come up with facts or a good argument, he’s not too afraid or too proud to be persuaded,’ Warren said.
“That’s the thing about Joe. He wants you in the fight with him. And when you’re in the fight with Joe at your side, you know you have a partner who is committed to getting something good done for this country,’ she said. ‘It’s up to all of us to help make Joe Biden the next president of the United States. Let’s get to work.”
