Biden: She’s been tested and she’s delivered
(Sunshine State News) – Former Vice President Joe Biden, a possible presidential candidate in 2020, threw his support to Nancy Soderberg who is looking to win a seat Democrats have their eyes on as they look to flip Congress in November.
Biden announced on Monday that he was supporting Soderberg who is running to replace U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who is running for governor. Soderberg served on the National Security Council during the Clinton presidency, to replace him.
Bill Clinton also named Soderberg as an alternate representative to the United Nations where she often represented the U.S. on the Security Council. She also led the Public Service Leadership Program at the University of North Florida. Soderberg stumbled during her first bid for public office when she ran for a state Senate seat in 2012.
“I’ve known Nancy for three decades since she first started her work in the Senate,” said Biden.
“She is a lifelong public servant who has served at the highest levels of government. At the White House and as an ambassador to the United Nations, Nancy brokered international peace deals, and helped develop and promote U.S. national security policy. She understands what it’s like to bring both sides to the table and solve complex issues. She’s been tested and she’s delivered.
