EL PASO, Texas -- Joe Biden, who has more endorsements from the Texas congressional delegation than any other Democratic presidential candidate, picked up another one on Monday.

El Paso Congresswoman Veronica Escobar through her nod behind the former vice president just a day before Super Tuesday voting in Texas and elsewhere.

She becomes at least the fourth member of Congress in Texas to back Biden, according to Texas Tribune archives.

“In the 2020 election, experience matters. That’s why I’m endorsing Vice President Joe Biden for President of the United States as the best candidate to take on Donald Trump and the chaos his administration has created. Communities like mine in El Paso need real solutions to the problems we are facing. From gun violence prevention to immigration reform, Vice President Biden has the integrity, experience and record of successful governing to lead our nation,” Escobar said in a statement announcing her endorsement.

Escobar's endorsement comes as polls show Biden trailing Bernie Sanders among Texas Democratic voters.
