Already making his entrance in the Florida midterm elections by campaigning alongside Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and Senator Bill Nelson, now former Vice President Joe Biden has endorsed Democrat Jeremy Ring in his bid to become Florida’s Chief Financial Officer.

In a statement, Biden explains why he believes that Ring is right for the job, saying that “Qualifications matter, and there is no one more qualified to be Florida’s Chief Financial Officer than Jeremy Ring. From helping to grow a little-known tech company named Yahoo! in the private sector to protecting first responders in the Florida Senate, Jeremy has built a reputation on getting things done. Make no mistake about it, when it comes to keeping insurance companies in check and safeguarding the Florida Retirement System, there is no better advocate for all Floridians than Jeremy. I look forward to helping elect him as Florida’s next Chief Financial Officer.”

The statement was released as part of a donation advertisement, and it thanks Joe Biden, commenting that he “represents all of the best qualities of a public servant. He’s led his entire adult life in the public eye and has served with dignity and grace – even in the face of extraordinary challenge and extreme sadness.”

The advertisement also adds that “I’m proud to have supported his Presidential run in 2008 and even more proud to be the only elected official in Florida to be a part of the Draft Biden movement in 2016.”

Ring’s campaign explains that their “forward thinking, innovating vision” is “one that features an innovation driven economy ready made for the 21st century and vital checks and balances to our state and federal government, to the state cabinet.”

However, with two weeks left before election day, polls indicate that Jeremy Ring is trailing Jimmy Patronis. So, was this announcement meant to somehow revitalize the campaign?
