Becoming the most prominent Democrat in Pennsylvania to endorse a candidate in the sprawling presidential field, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey quickly announced his support of former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday morning. Mr. Casey's endorsement came just 45 minutes after Mr. Biden announced his candidacy on Twitter.

"At this make-or-break moment for the middle class, our children and our workers, America needs Vice President Joe Biden to be its next President," Mr. Casey wrote in a statement. "Joe Biden has spent a lifetime fighting battles on behalf of hardworking Americans while ensuring America’s values and interests are represented abroad."

While Mr. Biden's announcement focused on the character of the nation and the 2017 clashes in Charlottesville, Va., Mr. Casey's endorsement hinged on the former vice president's standing as a fighter for the middle class, he said.

Mr. Casey said he's confident that Mr. Biden, a Scranton native, "will work to raise wages for middle class families, provide a better future for our children and restore America’s standing in the world."
