“Democrats have many good public servants and admirable people running for President. I will vote in the Virginia presidential primary for Joe Biden,” Kaine said in a statement.
Kaine’s endorsement of Biden comes as three of his colleagues — Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) — are battling with Biden for the party’s presidential nomination.
Though Sanders, the front-runner, and Warren are ideologically farther to the left than Kaine, Klobuchar occupies a similar middle ground, but has struggled to break out from the party’s crowded presidential primary field.
Kaine, in his statement, touted Biden’s work during the Obama administration, saying former President Obama “wisely chose” Biden to be his vice president.
