Biden, 77, won 82.4 percent of votes case by MoveOn members, the group announced Wednesday.
MoveOn endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in 2016. Sanders lost to former First Lady Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.
“MoveOn’s millions of members are ready to mobilize together in support of Joe Biden, working to turn out voters in key states and ensure that Donald Trump is a one-term president,” Rahna Epting, the group’s political action executive director, said in a statement.
“Donald Trump is racist, corrupt, immoral, and incompetent. He must be voted out. Joe Biden is a leader who listens, who is running on the most progressive platform in Democratic Party history, and whose election would create an opportunity for the big, structural changes this country needs.”
MoveOn was launched in 1998. Its initial focus was to convince lawmakers and voters to move on from then-President Bill Clinton’s affair with an intern.
Clinton, a Democrat, was impeached by the House of Representatives but acquitted by the Senate.
Biden in a statement to NBC said he was grateful for the support of MoveOn.
“The stakes in this election couldn’t be higher and MoveOn members will be critical to mobilizing voters in communities across the country to go to the polls,” he said.
MoveOn is an extreme leftist group that associates itself with BLM, BAAM, CAIR, and others. They are Progressive and they recognize that Biden will be a progressive president. It is scary to know that Biden will be a puppet to their demands.
Here are some of the past Campaigns they have listed on their website.
Trump is an out-of-control, dangerous man, and he’s using the power of the White House to harm us all. He is stirring up racial divisions and violence with his racist attacks and committing human rights atrocities against immigrant families, all while enriching himself, his family, and his donors. And he is obstructing every congressional effort to get to the truth—about his obstruction of justice, his family separation policies, his attempts to insert racist questions into the census, the secrets hidden in his taxes, and so much more. Failure to act will erode our Constitution and democracy, proving that the president is above the law and can act with impunity.
For all these reasons, Democrats need to stand up to stop Trump’s abuses. Congress will be home on recess until September 9th.
Confront gun violence and white nationalism
Trump’s hateful agenda, which is responsible for so many deaths and injuries, is unacceptable, and MoveOn will continue to fight against Trump’s bigotry, take on racism, reject white nationalism, and stand up to the epidemic of gun violence in our country through large scale actions, pressure on elected officials, and by running the largest election campaign in our history to kick racists out of office.
Win Elections and Endorse Progressive Candidates
As we march to the ballot box in 2020, MoveOn is endorsing candidates to end the GOP control of the Senate and take back the White House. And we’re endorsing 100 dynamic, diverse, progressive candidates for state and local office.
Oppose Trump’s March to War
Donald Trump is assembling a war Cabinet to rush his march toward war. And while we can’t stop warmonger John Bolton, who, Trump appointed to be his national security adviser, we worked hard to defeat the nomination of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. Pompeo is a pro-torture, anti-diplomacy, anti-Muslim, anti-choice, anti-LGBT, climate-change denier who is unfit to serve. MoveOn members made 15,000 calls to the Senate to reject Pompeo, and we ran videos, ads, and digital billboards that helped sway the vast majority of Democrats to oppose him. While the effort fell short of persuading Republicans, it has been a critical fight to oppose Trump’s rush to war—and to lay the groundwork against further military escalation Trump and Pompeo have planned.
Act in solidarity with immigrant communities and against white supremacist attacks
Immigration should be a safe and empowering choice. Everyone should have the freedom to move and freedom to stay based on what is best for them to thrive. But from the cruelest policies of the Trump administration to recent attacks in El Paso, TX, and across Mississippi, immigrant and Latino communities have been relentlessly assaulted. Donald Trump has escalated his all-out attack on immigrants in America—increasing brutal deportations, separating families, detaining sick and pregnant immigrants, and announcing the end to the successful DACA program that enabled young immigrants to live, work, and support their communities without fear of deportation. Working tirelessly alongside immigrant-led allied organizations, MoveOn members are actively demanding that Congress hold the federal agencies committing human rights abuses accountable.
Resist the Muslim Ban.
When Trump announced his first Muslim Ban, MoveOn members joined others in their communities protesting at airports around the country in a massive, vibrant, powerful display of resistance to the Trump administration’s racist vision for America—and we’ve rejected each version of his ban ever since.
