WASHINGTON (WRIC) — Former President Barack Obama endorsed Joe Biden, his former vice president and the likely 2020 Democratic nominee, for president in a video message Tuesday.
Sources close to Obama and Biden told ABC News of the endorsement, which comes a day after Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont announced his support for Biden in a joint online appearance, before the video was released.
Obama shared the video on social media a little before noon on Tuesday.
