California Senator Kamala Harris has supported Joe Biden with “incredible eagerness” as the Democratic party’s US presidential competitor.
“Biden has served our nation with respect and we need him now like never before,” she said in a Twitter post.
Her declaration is another lift for Mr Biden, the Democratic leader to take on Donald Trump in November.
Ms Harris, seen as a rising star inside the gathering, dropped out of the presidential race in December.
Backing for Mr Biden flooded in the Super Tuesday Democratic primaries a week ago, with the 77-year-old winning 10 of the 14 expresses that casted a ballot.
