On the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, Selma Mayor Darrio Melton announced his endorsement of Joe Biden for the President of the United States.
In his press statement, Melton said, “Vice President Joe Biden is the leader that we need to beat Donald Trump and bring our country back together again. Joe understands the issues families in Selma and communities across the country face. As president, I know that he will work to put them first again. Joe embodies the character, experience, and knowledge we need back in the White House. He is uniquely qualified to unite our country in this moment, and I look forward to the day we can call him our president. Today, I am proud to endorse Joe Biden for President of the United States.”
Melton joins a growing number of Alabama leaders who are supporting Biden heading into Super Tuesday.
U.S. Senator Doug Jones, Congresswoman Terri Sewell, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin, Talladega Mayor Timothy Ragland, State Rep. Juandalyn Givan, and Jefferson County Commissioners Lashunda Scales and Shelia Tyson are all backing the former Vice President.
