Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is launching a television ad in Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi on Tuesday featuring former President Barack Obama.
All three states vote on March 10. The $1.5 million television campaign is called “Service” and shows Obama praising Biden, Politico noted on Tuesday.
The 30-second spot starts off with a Jan. 12, 2017 clip showing the two men standing together. Obama is heard saying: “This is an extraordinary man with an extraordinary career in public service.”
As clips of Biden flash in the ad, Obama praises his efforts to revitalize American manufacturing.
And Obama adds: “He led our efforts to combat gun violence. He fought to make college more affordable. He championed landmark legislation to protect our women from violence. Joe’s candid, honest counsel made me a better president and a better commander in chief. And all of this makes him the finest vice president we’ve ever seen.”
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg also has run TV ads capitalizing on his ties to Obama. However, Obama does not plan on endorsing a candidate for the Democrat Party’s nomination for president in 2020, according to The New York Times.
