Joe Biden Nabs Endorsement From National Wildlife Federation

"Joe Biden just notched his first endorsement from an environmental group, in a sign he is consolidating support from the Democratic base in the 2020 presidential race.

The political arm of the National Wildlife Federation said Thursday it is backing Biden two days after the former vice president posted big wins in the Democratic primaries in Michigan and at least three other states.

The announcement represents a growing realization among green groups that Biden is likely to clinch the Democratic nomination — and that, should he win in November, they must work with his administration to craft environmental policy."
