International Association of Firefighters endorses Joe Biden for president

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/joe-biden-2020-international-association-of-firefighters-endorses-biden-for-president/

Former Vice President Joe Biden now has the backing of one of the largest trade unions in the country after the International Association of Firefighters said they support his presidency. A nearly 3-minute long video features highlights from Biden's addresses to the group over the years, touting his outreach to working, middle class Americans as being the "centerpiece of everything I have done."

1. The IAFF refused to endorse either Clinton or Trump in 2016 - so, this is a big deal.

4. The outreach to working people will serve him very well.

 

He can make inroads with those who feel left out but canít go for 45. Hopefully heíll get them to vote.

7. Really hits home for my family

 

Just the view from my little circle...

My grandpa was a fire chief of a small town for 25 years. And a proud Democrat who spoke of gladly staying with the party through the civil rights movement. He was a friend to everyone. IAFF support would be a big deal to him if he was still with us.

Cousins and uncles of mine have been firefighters and EMTs, as well. Some of them are Trump supporters, sigh.

I expect this will make them remember their Pa's views, and maybe think twice about nodding along with trump's maniacal bullshit.

I'm tracking with other candidates, too, but I really appreciate this endorsement.
