Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D. RI) in support of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign:
Watching President Trump flounder through the largest crisis America has faced in decades has been painful and embarrassing – it’s clear we need change at the top. That’s why I’m proud to join the Rhode Island congressional delegation in endorsing Joe Biden for president.
I am confident Vice President Biden will guide the nation through this difficult time. From day one he will tackle the challenges of transforming our economy, addressing climate change and restoring the full promise of the American dream. I’ve known Joe a long time. He’s a kind man who will provide consistent leadership, and I’m proud to call him a friend.
As you know, Republican extremists and their billionaire dark money allies are spending big and fighting dirty to keep Donald Trump in the Oval Office. Removing him won’t be easy. The attacks on Vice President Biden have already begun, and they’re going to get a lot worse between now and Election Day.
I’m doing everything I can to fight back. That’s why today I’m reaching out to ask if you’ll make a donation to the Biden campaign so we can defeat Donald Trump once and for all.
The future of our country is on the line in November’s election, and there are two clear visions: One, the status quo, puts special interests, corruption and xenophobia above everything else. The other, Vice President Biden’s, offers hope, decency and accountability.
