CANTON, NY — Healthcare advocate, former St. Lawrence County Legislator, and Congressional candidate Tedra Cobb has secured the endorsement of Vice President and presidential nominee, Joseph R. Biden.
“I am proud to endorse Tedra Cobb in New York’s 21st Congressional District,” said Vice President Biden. “When Tedra saw a gap in the health care system in her community, she started a community health agency. When the fire department had a volunteer shortage, Tedra signed up. As a legislator, during a trying economic time, Tedra lowered the cost of prescription drugs for seniors. Tedra has delivered real results for Northern New York, and that’s exactly the kind of leadership we need in Congress.”
Vice President Biden served for over 30-years in the United States Senate, representing the state of Delaware. In 2009, he was elected Vice President of the United States under President Barack Obama.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Vice President Biden,” said Cobb. “As Barack Obama’s Vice President, Joe Biden saw America through an economic crisis and helped author and pass the Affordable Care Act, which provided 64,000 Northern New Yorkers with health insurance. Joe Biden has a plan for rural America to ensure our communities thrive. As a military family member, I know Joe Biden will put our soldiers at Fort Drum and their safety first. Vice President Biden is the compassionate, competent, and conscientious leader America needs to see us through the challenges ahead: defeating the COVID19 pandemic and fixing our economy for working families.”
