Hillary Clinton Supported Joe Biden On The Campaign Trail
Hillary Clinton on Tuesday supported former Vice President Joseph Biden in the fight for the Democratic party's presidential nomination.
During an online broadcast on the Biden campaign website, Clinton admitted that she was happy to "not just support Biden's candidacy" but "help him with coverage of the many topics that will be raised in this presidential election." "Joe Biden has spent his entire life preparing for this moment," Clinton said. "I have had the privilege of working with him for the past 25 years."
In 2008, Clinton fought for the Democratic nomination in the presidential election but lost in the primaries to Barack Obama (who was President from 2009 to 2017), in whose administration she led the Foreign Policy Department from 2009 to 2013. In 2016, the Democratic Party Congress approved her as its presidential candidate in the election that took place on November 8 of that year, but Clinton lost to the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
On April 14, Obama officially supported Biden, who served as Vice President in his administration for all eight years.
Biden remained the only contender for the Democratic presidential nomination after the April 8 exit from the campaign of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. The Democratic National Convention, where Biden is expected to be named as the candidate for the highest state office in the country, is scheduled for mid-August in Milwaukee (Wisconsin). The US presidential election is scheduled for November 3.
