Biden and Carter have a long and fruitful relationship. Biden was a first-term U.S. senator from Delaware when Carter took office, and the Georgia Democrat said he was his first and most effective supporter in the upper chamber.
“For decades, he has been my loyal and dedicated friend,” Carter said during an emotional endorsement at the Democratic National Convention. “He understands that honesty and dignity are essential traits that determine not only our vision but our actions. More than ever, that’s what we need.”
