Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla., has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden's run for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination with less than two weeks to go before the Florida primary.
Frankel's endorsement was announced on Wednesday, shortly after former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said he would end his run for the White House, according to The Palm Beach Post. Bloomberg endorsed Biden.
"Joe Biden is the candidate who can win Florida and help Florida Democrats win down ballot," Frankel said. "At a moment when our state legislators and governor are fighting against voting rights, gun safety, and access to healthcare, we need a leader at the very top of the ticket who won't just help us halt these attacks on everyday Floridians, but also help us gain seats and political power across the state."
The newspaper noted Frankel is one of more than 45 officials in Florida who have endorsed Biden in advance of the state's March 17 primary. They include former Democratic Sens. Bill Nelson and Bob Graham.
