Former President Barack Obama endorsed Joe Biden, his former vice president, in a video released Tuesday.
Obama, following in the footsteps of other recent former presidents, chose to let the crowded Democratic primary process play out and not offer an endorsement until voters chose their presumptive nominee.
Biden leaned heavily on his strong relationship with Obama and his record as vice president throughout the primary race while still acknowledging that he needed to “earn” Obama’s endorsement.
Obama’s endorsement comes one day after Biden’s final rival in the race, Bernie Sanders, offered his own endorsement.
