Nikki Fried earns Joe Biden’s seal of approval
Democratic Ag. Commissioner nominee Nikki Fried earned another endorsement from another possible 2020 presidential contender: Former Vice President Joe Biden.
The Biden nod got handed down Tuesday afternoon at the “Winning Ticket Rally” in Orlando, where the No. 2 in the Obama Administration appeared alongside congressional members Stephanie Murphy and Val Demings, Cpt. Mark Kelly and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
“Nikki Fried will be a great Commissioner of Agriculture and I am proud to support her,” Biden said. “She will ensure complete background checks on gun permits be a fighter for the farmers who have been left behind under the current trade war, and protect Florida’s waterways for generations to come.”
Biden joins fellow possible 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts U.S. Senator, in endorsing Fried.
“I’m so thankful to have the support of Vice President Joe Biden—a true statesman and champion for working people,” Fried said. “As Agriculture Commissioner, Florida farmers will have a fighter, standing for them against the disastrous trade war, we will treat our natural lands and waters like the priority they are, and ensure that the people—not the NRA—oversee background checks on gun permits.”
