Cindy McCain Details Husband's Friendship With Biden For DNC


Cindy McCain offered her support Joe Biden for his presidential run Tuesday night.

She lent her voice to a video that aired during the second night of the virtual Democratic National Convention. It highlighted Biden’s close friendship with her last husband, Republican John McCain.

Cindy McCain spoke about how then-Delaware Sen. Biden met her husband when John McCain was assigned to be a military aide for the senator on a trip overseas. Cindy McCain didn’t offer an explicit endorsement of Biden, but her involvement in the video is her most significant show of support for the former vice president’s campaign.

Meanwhile, Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez was among several Democrats last night to deliver the collaborative keynote address. He was among 17 younger elected leaders throughout the country who were billed as the future of their party.

Nez spoke on video from the Navajo Nation about building a future with other up-and-coming leaders. Other speakers included former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and Pennsylvania Congressman Conor Lamb.
