Joe Biden wins climate change campaigner Al Gore's endorsement on Earth Day
(Reuters, 22 Apr 2020) As the U.S. contends with the coronavirus outbreak and resulting economic downturn, jobs in clean energy could drive recovery, Biden has said
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden won the support of two of his party's most prominent climate change campaigners, including former presidential candidate Al Gore, on Wednesday.
The endorsements of Gore and Washington state Governor Jay Inslee came as Biden seeks credibility with liberal voters he is courting as he tries to unify Democrats ahead of the Nov. 3 election against Republican President Donald Trump.
"I am proud to endorse my friend Joe Biden for President," said Gore on Twitter.
Gore, who was the U.S. vice president from 1993 to 2001, became known for his advocacy on climate change after he lost a bitterly contested close-call election for president against George W. Bush in 2000. He was expected to join Biden at an Earth Day campaign event to be held online on Wednesday.
