Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, sought support from Muslim Americans during an online summit Monday. The remarks came during Emgage Action’s online summit called “Million Muslim Votes,” which aimed to boost Muslim turnout in November.
This comes as several prominent Muslim American elected officials endorsed Biden for president in a letter organized by Emgage Action ahead of the summit.
Among those signing the letter, obtained by Associated Press, were Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, all Democrats.
