US: Sen. Cory Booker endorses former Vice President Joe Biden

Former Democratic presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker has endorsed Former Vice President Joe Biden. Booker ended his own presidential campaign in January and pledged to do everything he can to ensure that a Democratic candidate becomes the President of the United States in the 2020 elections.

'Restore honour'

Senator Booker announced that he was endorsing Joe Biden on Twitter on March 9. As per reports, Booker believes that Biden will restore honour to the Oval Office and tackle the most important challenges faced by the United States. Bookers recent decision follows recent endorsements by several other failed Democratic presidential candidates like Sen. Kamala Harris of California and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

Campaigns to go on

Despite having more than 500 confirmed cases in the United States, 2020 Presidential hopefuls Biden, Trump, and Sanders will continue their rallies as planned. According to public health experts, large scale rallies are breeding grounds for potentially deadly illnesses. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on March 8 claimed that his campaign was considering when it would be prudent to cancel large campaign rallies.

According to reports, Bernie Sanders claimed in a series of interviews that the most important thing is the protection of the health of the American people and that his campaign was in talks with public health officials from all over the nation. Sanders added that this was an issue that every organisation and every candidate had to face.
