As the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, Clinton made history by becoming the first woman to lead a major party’s ticket.

Her endorsement is the latest sign of the Democratic Party rallying around its nominee to challenge President Donald Trump. Clinton is just the latest Democratic politician to offer an endorsement of Biden.

Since Biden became the party's presumptive nominee, he's received endorsements from former President Barack Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
