Former President Barack Obama is expected to endorse Joe Biden’s presidential bid on Tuesday, ending months of speculation over when he would finally back his two-term veep.
Obama will throw his support behind his former vice president’s campaign in a video announcement after Sen. Bernie Sanders ended his sputtering White House bid last week and then endorsed Biden yesterday, two sources familiar with the matter told The Post.
A source close to Obama said the endorsement would come via video that will be posted to social media later today.
The endorsement was first reported by CNN on Tuesday.
Obama’s endorsement comes after months of silence from the influential former president who refused to endorse any Democrat even as Biden heavily invoked his relationship with Obama on the campaign trail.
A Biden campaign spokeswoman declined comment when reached by The Post.
