Country superstar Maren Morris has endorsed Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
During the virtual “I Will Vote” Democratic fundraiser on Sunday, October 25, Morris officially endorsed Biden and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
In a video posted on Morris’ Instagram, the singer provides her reasons behind supporting Biden and rejecting Donald Trump‘s administration.
“Coming from a Southern family with a conservative background, throughout my childhood, I was always taught to treat people with respect and dignity, no matter their race, their religion, their sexual orientation, and yes, even their political party,” she explained.
“But like a lot of us, I’ve been in perpetual shock watching what’s happened to our country these last few years. We’ve been divided and pitted against one another. We’ve seen the forces of hatred, not just reserved for the awkward Thanksgiving dinner conversation with a crazy relative once a year, but out in the open, encouraged and supported by the President of the United States.”
“We need leadership that is kind, compassionate and that cares — leadership that will unite us to overcome this pandemic, to put us back to work again, end systemic racism and work every day to ensure we leave this world to our kids in better shape than we found it,” Morris said.
