Joe Biden endorses Mike Espy
Former Vice President Joe Biden is backing fellow Democrat Mike Espy in the U.S. Senate runoff election.
Biden says Espy promises to protect social security, Medicare, and those with pre-existing medical conditions trying to find health insurance.
Espy was Mississippi’s first African-American U.S. House member in the 20th century and was the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture under President Bill Clinton.
He is trying to unseat Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith who just received the president’s endorsement.
