Biden Campaign Press Release - Joe Biden Wins Backing of 51 Massachusetts Leaders After Democratic Debate

October 18, 2019

Today, Biden for President announced 51 new endorsements from current and former elected officials across the state of Massachusetts – a key Super Tuesday state, and one of the most delegate-rich on the calendar to date.

"We're proud to have such a long list of dedicated public servants by our side in Massachusetts as we fight to restore the soul of this country," said Greg Schultz, Campaign Manager, Biden for President. "The Commonwealth has always been a cradle of our democracy, and it's as crucial to defending it in 2020 as it was to establishing it the 1770s. The Bay Staters who've joined with us today are ready for that fight, and know that Joe Biden can unite the country across party lines to defeat Donald Trump. Together, we'll build a movement to revive the American spirit and to get things done."

Today's endorsers join Rep. Stephen Lynch of Massachusetts, who has represented much of Boston and its southern suburbs for 18 years and has supported Vice President Biden's campaign since its start in April.

Last week, Biden for President announced 34 endorsements in Ohio and Pennsylvania, two other critical battleground states. Today's new supporters build on the campaign's momentum after this week's debate and demonstrates the growing energy for Vice President Biden across the country. These endorsers, and their strong networks on the ground, will also help to support the campaign's field organizing efforts and ground game in New Hampshire.

  • Shirley Asack, Brockton City Councilor
  • Joyce Asack, Brockton School Committee
