(CBS NEWS) – Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former secretary of state, endorsed Joe Biden for president on Tuesday, during a virtual “Women’s Town Hall” focusing on how women were responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Saying she wanted to add her voice to “the many who have endorsed” Biden, Clinton said, “Just think of what a difference it would make right now if we had a president who not only listened to the science, put facts over fiction, but brought us together….Think of what it would mean if we had a real president, not just someone who plays one on TV.”
The endorsement comes after the end of a competitive Democratic primary. Clinton and Biden both faced their strongest challenges in 2016 and 2020 from the same candidate, progressive Bernie Sanders.
This year, though, the infighting between the candidates ended earlier than in 2016 — Biden became the presumptive nominee more than two months earlier than Clinton did; Sanders continued to battle her for delegates into the summer.
