Joe Biden received a welcome jolt when the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers endorsed him at its annual officers’ meeting Feb. 4, the Washington Post reported. The union’s support followed the former vice president surprising fourth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses.

“Vice President Biden has been a longtime friend of working families and the IBEW,” the union’s international president, Lonnie R. Stephenson, said. “Joe has a long record of standing up for union members, and we believe it’s in the best interest of IBEW members to elect him our next president.”

The union has 775,000 active and retired members.
