Today, the Scott Peters for Congress campaign is honored to announce that Joe Biden has endorsed Rep. Scott Peters for re-election. Two years ago, a visit from Joe Biden in the final days of Peters’ first re-election campaign played a critical role in turning out voters and putting Peters over the top.

"I'm proud to support Scott Peters because he is a proven leader focused on putting bipartisan solutions for San Diego families over partisan bickering and gridlock,” Joe Biden said. “As we transition into a 21st century economy, we need commonsense leaders who are working to make sure our workers get the skills-based training they need to make sure they - and our country - are competitive in the global economy. In Congress, Scott Peters is a champion for innovative measures that will move our country forward, and standing up for our military and their families. I know he'll continue to stand up for all San Diego families in Congress."

“Vice President Biden is a true public servant whose dedication to his family and compassionate leadership speak to what is best about America,” Rep. Peters said. “There is no greater believer in the potential of scientific discovery to improve lives and create jobs than Vice President Biden, who knows that places like San Diego are leading the way. Vice President Biden and I also share the belief that our nation is strongest when we work together to create an economy that leaves no one behind, including by giving every student access to a high-quality, affordable education. It has been an honor to work with Vice President Biden and I am grateful for his support.”

Peters went on to praise Biden’s work defending women’s access to affordable health care and increasing protections for victims of domestic violence, priorities that Peters shares as well.
