U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen praised Barack Obama for choosing Sen. Joseph Biden from Delaware as his vice presidential running mate.
Larsen, a 2nd District Democrat, had high praise for Obama's section on Saturday.
“Biden is the perfect choice for vice president,” Larsen said.
“This decision shows good judgment on Obama’s part. Sen. Joseph Biden will be an integral part of a White House team that can help Barack Obama get the economy back on track, solve our energy crisis, and re-establish our foreign policy standards.”
Larsen, a superdelegate who is attending the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colo. this week, had earlier announced he would cast his vote for Obama.
“Biden is outfitted to step into the role of president of the United States if he is called to do so," Larsen added. "His extensive foreign policy expertise, advocacy work for middle class values, and track record of bringing people together to get the job done exemplify his qualifications.”
