Former US Vice President Joe Biden has officially become a Democratic candidate. He was previously supported by 1995 delegates.
It is reported by RBC-Ukraine.
According to preliminary estimates, Biden received 1995 votes out of 1991 necessary. Another candidate, Bernie Sanders, who had previously abandoned the presidential race, received 1,042 votes.
Thus, Biden is the only Democratic candidate.
“It was an honor for me to fight one of the most talented groups of candidates that the Democratic Party has ever nominated, and I can proudly say that we are going to a united party for this election,” said Joe Biden.
Note that the election of the US president should be held in November 2020.
