After losing the 2016 presidential election, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D) has been supporting Vice President Joe Biden’s (D) candidacy for the presidency in the upcoming 2020 election.
Now, another former Democratic candidate who lost his election has entered the political chat, and he’s making his case as to why the upcoming election is critical for the United States.
In 2004, former Secretary of State John Kerry (D) lost the presidential election to incumbent President George W. Bush (R). In a statement released to Democrats at the conclusion of the Republican National Convention, Kerry made his case as to why the country needs Vice President Biden, arguing that “we need a leader capable of fixing our broken economy, addressing the natural disasters that will only worsen with climate change, and facing COVID-19 head-on.”
“I know Joe as a person and a public servant – from our years in the Senate to our years in the Situation Room,” he shared, adding that Biden is “more than up for the immensity of the job.”
However, Kerry stressed that “we only have limited time left to help him and Democrats everywhere win their races – and it’s going to take all of us doing our part in critical moments like this one to ensure they have the resources to do so.”
The message comes at a time when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) has signaled that she would not like to see Biden debate Trump because she feels that Trump only spreads disinformation, but Trump has signaled that he would like to debate Biden as soon as possible.
