Today I am proud to endorse my friend Joe Biden for President of the United States.

I’ve known Joe for many years and across a number of settings: making hard decisions about war and peace in the Situation Room as Vice President under President Obama, building coalitions and getting things done as a Senator, and sharing quiet moments with his constituents. Wherever he goes, Joe’s the same person. He’s passionate about standing up for families and working to make their lives better.

More than ever, these tumultuous times reveal how desperately we need level-headed, solutions-oriented leadership. We need someone who listens to scientists, who acts with kindness and compassion, and who recognizes that America can and must lead the world in responding to this pandemic.

Joe Biden will be that president, and I hope you’ll join me in doing everything I can to get him elected in November. If you’re with me — and with Joe — make a donation right now:

The world today looks very different than the one so many of us fought for in 2016. Like many of you, I’m concerned — not only about our current health crisis, but about the deep-seated problems in our democracy that it lays bare, from inequity in our health care system to the high-wire act demanded of too many working parents.

When I think about who I want leading us through this challenging time, there is no question: Joe Biden has the bold ideas, the smart plans, and most of all, the character to tackle this crisis and any others that come our way.

I am proud to call him a friend and colleague, and I will be even prouder to call him President of the United States. But first, we have to do all that we can to get to a win in November. Chip in right now to show Joe that you’re ready to do the work.

Onward,

Hillary


Hey there. I’m Joe Biden, and I’m writing to you about a truly special moment in our campaign.

This afternoon, Secretary Clinton announced she’s endorsing us. I’m so proud to have her support.

I got to see first-hand what an extraordinary leader Hillary was in the U.S. Senate. When I was Vice President and she was Secretary of State, we would often meet for breakfast meetings at the Vice President’s residence when we were both in town. That’s where I got to see why she was such a powerful, respected and admired voice all across the world. Hillary has long had the courage to speak out against the worst impulses in our country and the world — and to stand up for the best in us.

Hillary’s candidacy was historic. It is long overdue that we have a woman in the White House. I’ve already made public that my Vice President and partner in campaigning and governing will be a woman. For me, it’s the obvious, necessary and right choice.

In 2016, you and millions of others built one of the most impressive operations our party and country has ever seen. Volunteers, donors, and grassroots supporters that were passionate and organized and worked day in and day out for Hillary.

I know, for some of you, you are hesitant to get involved again on a campaign. I understand that. I am going to do everything I can to earn your support and your trust.

And I’m here to tell you that you’re not only welcome as part of this campaign: you’re needed.

The only way that we’ll defeat Donald Trump is with a broad coalition of folks working together to win what I have been calling a battle for the soul of our nation.

I’m not here to ask you for money — I know first I have to earn it. So I’m asking you to think about what is at stake, give me a chance, and join my campaign.
I’M IN FOR JOE’S CAMPAIGN ➞

This endorsement means a lot. I was so proud to support Hillary in 2016, and it means a lot that she’s supporting me now.

If you join me, we can win the battle for the soul of the nation. And by the way, when I say that, I’m not being nostalgic. I’m not trying to take us back to a country that never existed. The foundational principles of our country — that all men and women are created equal — are ones that we’ve never lived up to. But we’ve never given up trying to live up to them.

It is not enough to “go back” to anything. We have to take immediate, bold action to tackle the climate crisis. We have to relieve a generation of the crushing burden of student debt. We have to make healthcare a right and not a privilege. And to get there, we’re going to need millions of grassroots supporters to take action right away.

If you join our campaign, we will not just defeat Donald Trump. We will not just win the battle for the soul of our nation. We will transform it too.

To close, I will humbly ask:

Will you join my campaign today? I’d be honored if you did.

Thank you for everything,

Joe Biden

Onward Together!This is a difficult time. Medical professionals, grocery store employees, delivery drivers, mail carriers, firefighters, police, nursing home employees, and other workers are putting their health and safety on the line to get essential goods and services to the rest of the country. Meanwhile, millions of families are trying to balance work, childcare, homeschooling or distance learning, shopping, cleaning, and more — all while staying inside.

If you’re comfortable sharing, I’d like to hear from you. Tell us what you’re doing to get through this time:

Leave a note

As for Bill and I, we’re catching up on reading, watching TV, taking walks while keeping our distance from others, organizing and filing stacks of paper that we let pile up, and staying in touch with our grandkids. Even though these times of separation are difficult, please remember that those of us who can stay home are helping to save lives by doing so. And even though we are apart, we are stronger together.

Whatever your situation, thank you for doing your part. And if you’re struggling, know that the entire Onward Together family is thinking of you.

Stay safe and healthy,

Hillary

Onward Together!

First, to the medical professionals, grocery store employees, delivery drivers, pharmacy workers, mail carriers, firefighters, police, nursing home employees, and everyone else who is working to save lives and keep us all going right now: Thank you. I am so grateful for your sacrifice.
Second, if you’re home and healthy, I hope you’ll take a moment to check out the efforts of a few of our Onward Together partners. They have worked quickly to fill gaps in our systems and help candidates quickly move their campaigns online, and I’m grateful for them, too.
  • The National Domestic Workers Alliance has created the Coronavirus Care Fund to support the many nannies, house cleaners, and in-home caregivers who are navigating this crisis without paid sick leave or health care.
  • The Collective Education Fund has teamed up with Humanity Forward to raise money for working families affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
  • The Texas Civil Rights Project is calling on statewide officials to ensure that Texans will be able to vote safely
  • Swing Left has launched a virtual organizing hub, so that you can help elect Democrats while still staying home.
  • Latino Victory is providing daily updates on what current and former Latino Victory candidates and allies are doing to respond to COVID-19
  • Emerge is offering a brand-new five-part webinar series to help Democratic women campaign during the crisis, and the last webinar is tomorrow.
  • Run for Something put together a candidate support kit with resources for state and local candidates who need to find new ways to reach voters.
  • Arena has moved their May training for future campaign staffers online — and you can apply now to be a part of it.
We don’t have to feel helpless. Whatever you have to give — an hour, a few dollars, or just a quick read — makes a difference.

Stay safe and healthy,

Hillary
