Former Vice President Joe Biden says he supports Gretchen Whitmer in her gubernatorial campaign.

Biden announced his endorsement of Whitmer on Wednesday.

“Michigan’s middle-class families need a governor who knows how to get things done, and that’s why I’m endorsing Gretchen,” Biden said.

Biden is expected to join Whitmer's campaign in Southeast Michigan in the coming weeks.

“It’s such an honor to have Vice President Biden’s support,” Whitmer said. “There’s still so much more important work to do, and I’m committed to building a better Michigan for all of us by finally fixing the damn roads, cleaning up our drinking water, and getting rid of the Snyder Retirement Tax once and for all. It’s time to get it done.”
