IOWA: US House Rep Endorses Biden Ahead Of Caucus

The Associated Press reports:

Joe Biden has landed a high-profile endorsement for his presidential bid as Rep. Abby Finkenauer becomes the first member of the Iowa congressional delegation to take sides in the Democratic nominating contest.

Finkenauer, a first-term House member from a district Donald Trump won in 2016, will campaign with Biden this weekend, with less than four weeks to go before the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses that lead off Democrats’ 2020 voting.

The congresswoman said in an interview with The Associated Press ahead of Thursday’s announcement that the former vice president’s experience, his proposals on infrastructure and other economic matters and his appeal to a wide range of voters make him the ideal Democrat to take on Trump.
