'They don't make 'em like Joe anymore': Biden expands grip on congressional endorsements

Former Vice President Joe Biden expanded his lead in congressional endorsements Thursday, landing the backing of second-term Rep. Al Lawson of Florida.

“They don’t make ‘em like Joe anymore,” Lawson said in a statement obtained by POLITICO. “We have an opportunity now to meet head on the greatest challenges of our time, and ensure our best days still lie ahead of us and that is why I am endorsing him to be the next president of the United States."

Lawson said Biden “has a long history of doing what’s right and not what’s easy to advance the causes of America’s working families.”

Lawson is the latest in a string of Democrats to line up behind Biden in Florida, which will be a key battleground state in the 2020 presidential election.

1. No they don't

 

Biden is who we need at this point in time. I would love to see him run with a progressive Dem woman.

3. Biden is a "human" being.

 

I emphasize the human because because of the personal tragedies he has endured thru out his life. He understands the pain that is out there and will do whatever he can to help his fellow man. He has most of all, wisdom, which by the way comes with age. Those of us who have reached a quarter of century know what I'm saying. If only I would've known what I know now at the age of 21, wow my life would have been so different. But, alas it only comes as we grow older.

5. Lol. I'm imagining cartoons with

 

"They don't make 'em like Joe anymore." Somehow I'm guessing the Biden campaign won't be running with that one. Nice thought, though.

Btw, just looked, none yet.
