Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., announced he is endorsing Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president.
Khanna’s announcement means Sanders is the first 2020 candidate to pick up an endorsement from a member of Congress outside their home state, Roll Call noted.
Khanna made the announcement on Twitter.
He wrote on Thursday: “I am excited to endorse @BernieSanders for our next President of the United States. Bernie has spent his career fighting for working people and standing up to corporations and special interests. He has the grassroots energy and the vision to inspire voters across America.”
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Khanna will serve as one of the national co-chairs for the Sanders’ campaign.
