“Joe Biden has the experience — in politics, in government and in life — to lead the United States out of our current crisis,” said co-founder Reed Galen. “As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady our ship of state, bind up our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a national leader.”

George Conway, a frequent critic of Trump, revealed in March that he had made the maximum allowable donation to Biden’s campaign after the candidate picked up multiple primary victories on Super Tuesday.  

The Lincoln Project, a super PAC founded by a number of conservatives last year, aims to gather enough disenfranchised Republicans and independents to prevent the reelection of Trump in 2020.

Last month, the group slammed the president's response to the coronavirus pandemic in a video titled “Unfit.”

It featured clips of Trump in interviews and press conferences assuring the country that the administration is “totally prepared,” and claiming “anybody who wants a test can get a test,” contrasted by clips of business closures and medical shortages.
