Biden gained support in Iowa Wednesday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Although Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware, is far behind his rivals in most Iowa polls, the presidential hopeful announced Wednesday that he won over his 13th Hawkeye State legislator.
Biden is third behind Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, in Iowa legislative endorsements. Clinton has earned 16 so far and Obama has 15, according to their campaigns.
Iowa State Rep. Mary A. Gaskill announced her support for Biden's presidential bid Wednesday.
“I believe that Sen. Joe Biden has the breadth of experience on foreign policy and record of bipartisan leadership on domestic issues our country so desperately needs,” Gaskill said. “He is sincere, authentic and I believe he is the best candidate the democrats have - and that is why I am supporting him.”
