March 06, 2020 - 11:43 AM

DOVER, Del. - Delaware Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester will serve as a co-chair for former Vice-President Joe Biden's presidential campaign, officials announced.

Blunt Rochester will join Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti as top advisers promoting Biden's bid for the presidency, news outlets reported Wednesday.

The announcement came after Biden claimed victory in 10 of the 14 states that cast ballots for the Democratic presidential primaries on Super Tuesday.

Blunt Rochester said Biden “showed the country” he's a “leader with more experience.” She said she looks forward to growing Biden's campaign and ensuring that “President Donald Trump is a one-term president.”

Biden, who served as one of Delaware's two senators for 36 years, said Blunt Rochester is a friend and “role model for all Delawareans.”

Blunt Rochester was elected in 2016 and is the first woman and the first person of colour to represent Delaware in Congress. She won a second term in 2018 and is running for re-election.
