This is a big and a key endorsement for Joe Biden.

Confirmed now.

Excerpts from Sen. Duckworth’s endorsement:

“Those of us who’ve served this nation in uniform understand just how important it is for the commander in chief to have, not only the depth of experience needed to protect our country, but also the humility to recognize the magnitude of the sacrifices our troops make on their orders,” said Duckworth, an Iraq War combat veteran who lost both legs and some use of her right arm after a helicopter she was piloting was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade in 2004.

“As a combat Veteran and former Assistant VA Secretary,” she said, “I know that Joe Biden won’t just pay lip service to those sacrifices, he’ll make sure our troops and Veterans receive the support, care and respect they’ve earned.”

…..

“Joe also has a proven record of not just promising to help the little guy and communities of color like Donald Trump, but Joe actually delivers for them — he’s earned our trust,” Duckworth said. “I’m supporting Joe Biden because he will unite our party and country, restore dignity to the White House and rebuild trust in our government with decency, optimism and experience.”

Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth’s pull in Illinois and in the midwest could make a big difference in a close race for the Democratic nomination.

Did I say she would make a great VP pick as well?
