The article features hundreds of campaign endorsements from both political figures and familiar faces within entertainment. Included in the very long list are individuals such as Barack Obama, Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Demi Lovato.
The endorsements list is so long that it’s been suggested to split it into two separate pages.
Both Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris are continuing to hit the campaign trail. Chuck Taylors began trending on Twitter this Monday after Harris was seen rocking the classic footwear while in Milwaukee.
