IN THE NEWS

Rolling Stone endorses Joe Biden for President

“Vice President Biden’s platform offers progressive solutions to every major problem facing the country, and he has the experience to put those principles into practice. It is no exaggeration to say that the American experiment hangs in the balance in the November election. Four years of Trump have left 215,000 of us and counting dead from a serious but preventable public-health crisis, tens of millions out of work or underemployed…Every election presents a stark choice. Vote like your country — and perhaps even your life — depends on it.”
