“Our nation is at a crossroads and needs an experienced leader who will immediately restore America’s standing in the world, fight for working families, and bring our country together. That leader is Joe Biden, which is why I am proud to endorse him for President of the United States,” Schneider said in a statement circulated by Biden’s campaign.

“Donald Trump has turned his back on America’s most trusted allies, chipped away at America’s reputation on the world stage, and fueled global crises. Joe is the only candidate in this race who will defeat Donald Trump and step into the Oval Office on day one with the credibility to immediately begin repairing and rebuilding international alliances — setting our nation on a path to again be a trusted and respected leader.” 

Schneider is the 38th member of Congress to endorse Biden’s presidential campaign. 

Biden has centered his campaign around the concept of electability, maintaining on the trail that a centrist like him is best suited to defeat Trump in a handful of key swing states in November.

He has particularly worked on racking up endorsements from moderate lawmakers who represent swing districts or swing states to bolster his standing among centrist voters.
