Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is throwing his support behind Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján for U.S Senate in New Mexico.

The former vice president said Sunday that Luján is a “proven leader” who has helped craft legislation like the CARES Act - the COVID-19 relief bill.

Biden also cited Luján’s work on health care reform while in the U.S. House.

Luján and Republican Mark Ronchetti are vying for an open U.S. Senate seat in New Mexico. Democratic U.S. Sen. Tom Udall is retiring.

Luján and Ronchetti have traded attack ads on who is the better candidate for health care reform in New Mexico.
