BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WTOK) - Alabama Cong. Terri Sewell (AL-07) announced Friday she is supporting former Vice President Joe Biden in his bid for the Democrat nomination for president.

Sewell is attending events with Bide in South Carolina this weekend, with events honoring the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..

“I believe that Joe Biden is the best Democratic candidate to beat (President) Trump and, therefore, protect the causes central to the life’s work of Dr. King,” Sewell said. “That is why Joe Biden is my choice for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States.”

Sewell says Biden has proven his ability to bring Americans together to fight for civil rights, expand access to health care, tackle poverty and inequality and promote economic prosperity for all Americans.

There are eleven other Democrats still in the race:
Bernie Sanders
Elizabeth Warren
Pete Buttigieg
Amy Klobuchar
Andrew Yang
Tom Steyer
Tulsi Gabbard
John Delaney
Michael Bloomberg
Michael Bennet
Deval Patrick
