NYPost reports House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday endorsed former Vice President and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden – saying he can help guide the US out of the coronavirus crisis.

“As we face coronavirus, Joe has been a voice of reason and resilience, with a clear path to lead us out of this crisis,” Pelosi said in a prerecorded video.

The California Democrat also cited Biden’s experience helping to pass the Affordable Care Act and implementing the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Her endorsement follows former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Al Gore, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), among others, in backing Biden in taped testimonials.

“When our nation faced the Great Recession, it was Joe Biden who led the implementation — and the accountability — of the Recovery Act, helping create and save millions of jobs,” Pelosi said.

“When the Democratic Congress was passing the Affordable Care Act, Joe Biden was a partner for progress in the White House and also championed the Cancer Moonshot,” she continued.

“I am proud to endorse Joe Biden for president: a leader who is the personification of hope and courage, values, authenticity and integrity,” Pelosi added in the video.

“With so much at stake, we need the enthusiasm, invigoration and participation of all Americans — up and down the ballot, and across the country.”
