Joe Biden is getting the support of more and more people as the election day approaches.

This week, presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard decided to end her campaign and endorsed Biden. In her statement, Gabbard called Biden’s son, Beau, her friend.

“I know Vice President Biden and his wife and am grateful to have called his son Beau, who also served in the National Guard, a friend. Although I may not agree with the Vice President on every issue, I know that he has a good heart and is motivated by his love for our country and the American people,” she said in a statement.

Gabbard also said that the results of Tuesday’s primaries proved that voters picked Biden to take on President Donald Trump. The former vice president swept the races in Arizona, Florida, and Illinois.

After endorsing Biden, former President Barack Obama’s partner thanked Gabbard for her support via his Twitter account.

“@TulsiGabbard⁩ has put her life on the line in service of this country and continues to serve with honor today. I'm grateful to have her support and look forward to working with her to restore honor and decency to the White House,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand also endorsed Biden for president this week. Despite their recent clashes during the debates on matters regarding gender roles, Gillibrand still praised Biden for his commitment to equality.

“I’m proud to endorse @JoeBiden today. Our country needs a president who will provide steady, honest leadership, and I believe Joe has the right experience, empathy, and character to lead. I'm excited to help him defeat Donald Trump in November,” she tweeted.

“It is clear that our country desperately needs a president with experience, honesty, and integrity -- that person is Vice President Joe Biden. Not only does Joe have the experience to lead our country, but he has the empathy and character to go with it. Joe will fight for policies that reward work, such as the FAMILY Act, and will be a champion for women and families, workers, and young people,” she said in her lengthier statement.
