Former President Barack Obama has announced his long-awaited endorsement of Joe Biden for president.
Obama made the endorsement official in a video message Tuesday.
The news comes a day after Sen. Bernie Sanders threw his support behind his political rival.
The Vermont senator said the most important thing is defeating President Donald Trump in November and Sanders told Biden that he would be the best person to do so.
“We need you in the White House,” Sanders told Biden. “I will do all that I can to make that happen.”
