The endorsements come as Biden tries to make the case that he’s the best candidate to win in areas that Trump carried in 2016.
“I believe that the next President must attempt to unify this country,” Lamb said in a statement. “President Trump has only driven people further apart.

Houlahan and Luria both flipped Republican-held seats in the 2018 when Democrats took back the House majority.
“Joe Biden is ‘battle-tested’ on the world stage, in Congress, and in the White House. He will defeat Donald Trump and win in tough districts like mine,” Luria said in a statement.
“Our country needs a steady hand, someone who can help heal the country, an experienced and proven leader who can build teams with deep expertise and work across the aisle,” Houlahan said in a statement. “We need a leader who will restore American leadership, revive our alliances, and defend democratic values around the world. Joe Biden is that leader.”
