Biden gets endorsement from Gary Locke, first Chinese American named U.S. ambassador to China




Democratic presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden picked up an endorsement Friday from an Obama administration Cabinet member who also served as the first American of Chinese descent to head the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.

“Our current international state of affairs requires a leader with tried and tested experience in dealing with some of our most consequential issues,” Gary Locke, former United States ambassador to China and former secretary of commerce, said in a statement released first to NBC News. “I cannot think of anyone better than Joe Biden to assume the role of commander-in-chief at this critical time.”

The endorsement from Locke, the former governor of Washington and a figure respected in the Asian American community, follows a round of New Hampshire endorsements for Biden, including notable state leaders and elected officials. Voting in the state’s primary takes place Feb. 11.

Locke is now the seventh Obama Cabinet member to endorse Biden, according to the former vice president’s campaign.

“As an Ambassador and Secretary of Commerce during the Obama-Biden Administration, I saw firsthand Joe’s leadership and ability to deliver real results on behalf of Americans,” Locke said. “From the Affordable Care Act to signing the Paris Climate Accords — Joe Biden helped make progress a reality.”
