It finally happened!
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, a progressive firebrand who has shaped a political career around taking on Wall Street, endorsed Hillary Clinton’s White House bid after withholding support for months during the Democratic presidential contest between Clinton and rival Bernie Sanders.Oh yeah...Joe too! Though his endorsement was far more low-key.
Warren announced her endorsement on MSNBC’s "Rachel Maddow Show" Thursday night.
"I am ready to get into this fight and to work my heart out for Hillary Clinton and to make sure that Donald Trump doesn’t get anywhere near the White House," Warren said.
The move by the first-term Massachusetts senator, who many had urged to enter the 2016 race herself, provides progressive Democrats with a strong signal to rally around the party’s presumptive nominee. It came on the same day President Barack Obama formally endorsed Clinton in a bid to unify Democrats following a White House meeting with Sanders. Vice President Joe Biden also signaled his support in a speech on Thursday, saying “God willing,” the next president would be Clinton.
