JEFFERSON CITY, Mo (KMOX) — Former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden has given his public support for Missouri's Nicole Galloway. The state auditor is running for governor hoping to unseat Gov. Mike Parson on November 3. 

The endorsement was announced Monday by Galloway's campaign with a statement from Biden. 

“State Auditor Nicole Galloway is a proven champion for  Missouri’s working families — crossing the aisle to deliver results. As Auditor, she worked to bring transparency to state government and hold politicians accountable to the people, uncovering millions of dollars in waste and fraudulent spending. I am proud to endorse Nicole for Governor, and know she will continue to fight for access to affordable, quality health care, improving public schools, and bringing good-paying jobs to the state,” said Vice President Joe Biden.

“Vice President Joe Biden was a key part of the team that expanded healthcare to millions of Americans and brought our country back the last time we were on the brink of an economic disaster. I can’t think of a leader who is better suited for this moment and I am honored to have his support in this race,” said State Auditor Nicole Galloway. “Next year, we’ll work together to lower prescription drug costs,  expand access to healthcare, and put Missouri back on the path to economic recovery.” 

With the endorsement from Biden, both Galloway and Parson have been endorsed by the presidential candidate associated with their respective parties. President Donald Trump gave his "total endorsement" to Parson last month.
