Today, Wisconsin Congressman Ron Kind released the following statement endorsing Joe Biden for President of the United States:
“I’ve known Joe Biden for a long time, and I know that there is no one with greater passion and integrity for serving others than Joe. Many people know Joe Biden, but more importantly, Joe Biden knows us. He knows our struggles and the challenges we face here in Wisconsin—affording our prescriptions, battling illnesses, protecting our retirements, and standing up for our farmers. He also knows a lot about getting knocked down and getting right back up again, he’s a fighter, and our country needs his compassion and leadership. At a time filled with so much uncertainty, we need to come together to do what’s best for our families, our communities, and our country. Joe Biden will be the President who does just that. When I mail in my ballot, I will be voting for Joe Biden.”
In Wisconsin, Biden for President has announced more than 40 endorsements from leaders across the state – including former Governor Jim Doyle, former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling, Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz, and Milwaukee County Democrats Chair Chris Walton.
Nationally, Biden for President has previously announced more than 2,500 endorsements from national, state, and local leaders, including current and former U.S. senators and representatives, governors, state elected officials, community leaders, and national security professionals.
