Kansas City Star: Joe Biden continues streak of Midwest endorsements, backs Kansas Rep. Sharice Davids

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden endorsed Kansas Rep. Sharice Davids Thursday, continuing a string of political testimonials in Kansas and Missouri over the past week.

Davids, who represents Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District, will face Republican Amanda Adkins in November’s election.

Biden called Davids a “tireless advocate for hardworking Kansans.”

“Congress needs more leaders like Sharice who roll up their sleeves to get things done for their districts,” Biden said in a release.

“It is an honor to have the endorsement and support of Vice President Joe Biden,” Davids said in her statement. “Vice President Biden and I share a commitment to making sure every person in this country has the opportunity to succeed.”

Davids received backing from former President Barack Obama in 2018, when she defeated Republican incumbent Kevin Yoder.

On Monday, Biden announced his support for Missouri gubernatorial candidate Nicole Galloway, followed Tuesday by Jill Schupp in her campaign for Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District.

Biden has endorsed numerous other U.S. House candidates in red districts over the past week.
