Iraq Vet Backs Embattled Dem Candidate

Via The Washington Examiner:

Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton endorsed his former Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden for president, the second 2020 drop-out to do so.

“There’s no better preparation for the White House than the decades Joe Biden has spent serving the country, especially his eight years as vice president,” Moulton, 41, said Monday. “His record is one of turning progressive ideas into laws like an assault rifle ban, the Violence Against Women Act, and health care reform that made the country safer and stronger. Most importantly: Joe can win.”

The Massachusetts congressman ran a short-lived presidential bid last year, launching in late April and ending his campaign in August after failing to gain traction in the historically crowded field of candidates. Moulton is a decorated Marine Corps combat veteran who did three tours in Iraq and was awarded two Bronze Stars and a Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for valor.

Earlier this month, Moulton took a jab at presidential hopeful and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Navy Reserve veteran who has touted his experience as an intelligence analyst in Afghanistan as a selling point for his candidacy.
