Obama and Biden endorse McGinty.

Obama, Biden throw support behind Katie McGinty in U.S. Senate race

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have endorsed former state Environmental Secretary Katie McGinty in the April's competitive Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate.

In a written statement released Wednesday, Obama touted McGinty's work on energy and climate change issues, as well as Pennsylvania's expansion of Medicaid coverage through the Affordable Care Act.
