Cindy McCain announced her endorsement of Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president Tuesday night.
In a series of tweets, the wife of the late Sen. John McCain gave her reasons for backing Biden.
“He will be a commander in chief that the finest fighting force in the history of the world can depend on, because he knows what it is like to send a child off to fight,” she tweeted.
Biden announced during a fundraiser Tuesday that McCain is endorsing him because of President Trump’s remarks about service members as reported in the Atlantic. Cindy McCain also appeared in a video during last month’s Democratic National Convention celebrating Biden and her late husband’s long-time friendship.
Biden later responded, tweeting that he was "deeply honored" to have her support and friendship.
"This election is bigger than any one political party. It requires all of us to come together as one America to restore the soul of the nation. Together, we'll get it done," Biden tweeted.
