They join dozens of Georgia Democratic officials who have endorsed Biden in recent weeks, following blowout victories in South Carolina and a string of coast-to-coast contests that have given him a nearly unassailable delegate lead.
Long before Super Tuesday, Biden had amassed far more endorsements than any other White House hopeful in Georgia, a collection of supporters that includes Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop, former U.S. Sen. Max Cleland and dozens of influential state legislators.
But more politicians rallied to him last month as party leaders worried the Vermont senator could bring lasting damage to down-ballot candidates.
Sanders, who was trounced in Georgia in 2016, trails Biden badly in recent polls. But it's not yet certain when the presidential primary will be held.
The state's March vote was pushed back to May because of the pandemic and a growing number of Republicans are calling for another delay.
Here is the full list of Friday’s endorsements:
- Baldwin County Commissioner Emily Davis
- Atlanta City Councilman Andre Dickens
- State Representative David Dreyer
- Dekalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson
- Dekalb County Commissioner Lorraine Cochran Johnson
- State Representative Josh McLaurin
