Everytown For Gun Safety Endorses Joe Biden

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Joe Biden has received the endorsement of one of the nationís largest gun control advocacy groups, Everytown for Gun Safety, in the latest sign that Bernie Sandersí spotty record on guns may be weighing him down in the presidential primary.

Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund plans to spend $60 million on electoral activities this cycle, some of which will go toward trying to elect Biden. An Everytown spokesman said the group typically airs advertisements and engages in grassroots organizing for the candidates it endorses, though itís unclear when the group will begin to spend on Bidenís behalf. The group also boasts 6 million supporters and more than 375,000 grassroots donors, numbers that could help boost attention and support for Bidenís presidential bid nationwide.

In an interview with The Associated Press, John Feinblatt, head of Everytown for Gun Safety, said the group chose Biden because working for gun control is ďhis past, itís his present, itís his future.Ē Asked if Sandersí record on gun control factored into the groupís decision, Feinblatt said that the group looks at a candidateís ďtotal record.Ē
