Today, Biden for President is announcing the endorsement of 16 current and former elected officials and community leaders from Washington, an influential state on the March 10 primaries.

"Today's endorsements add to the groundswell of momentum we're seeing across the country for Joe Biden, including right here in Washington," said Washington State Senator Marko Liias.

Joe Biden is the only candidate who can build the most broad based coalition necessary to be successful on Super Tuesday, March 10, and beyond."
