Booker endorses Biden for president

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker has endorsed former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. for president in a tweet he sent out Monday morning.

“I’m happy about the diversity of our nation. I’m happy to see the coalitions that Joe Biden is building,” Booker said in the CBS This Morning video.

“I’m happy that I know, confidently, that he is going to govern in a way that brings us together as a nation across racial, religious, even party lines to begin to do the business because we know now more than ever our adversaries from China to Russia are building a strengthened determination to undermine our democracy.

“Our division as a country is our weakness.

“We need a candidate who can best unify all of us and that is Joe Biden.”
