I've been saying this for months. This election is about two words. Beat Trump. That is our only issue.

All the other issues can be taken care of once we have a Democratic candidate who can beat Trump, sitting at the Resolution desk in the White House.

We have had an amazing group of candidates running. But Joe Biden is the one who will bring us the biggest turnout in November. That is how we Beat Trump.

I hate to say this, but it's true. I personally know Democrats who feel this way. Bernie is too far left. Some people will not vote for a gay candidate. Some people will not vote for a woman candidate. And some people are sick of those who can buy their way into office. When even Democratic voters hold these prejudices, they will not show up to vote when the person on the top ticket is someone who fits into one of these categories. I hope the day comes when we grow up, and none of these reasons matter. But in 2020, unfortunately they still do.

Joe Biden is someone we can trust. Also importantly, the world knows they can trust him. The world knows him through his work as the vice president. He already has established relationships all over the world. He can start healing this country, and our standing in the world, on day one.

What a lot of people don't seem to understand is that this is not a normal election. We don't have the luxury of voting for our sentimental favourite. We don't have the luxury of voting for the person with whom we most closely identify. We have a madman in the White House. If we don't remove him by way of ALL of our votes, I doubt he will ever leave. He wants to be a dictator, and he is doing everything he can to assure it happens.

We know he's afraid of Joe Biden. Trump's team knows that Joe Biden is the one person who will bring out the vote, who can Beat Trump, and end this national nightmare.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
