Florida Sixth Congressional District candidate Democrat Nancy Soderberg picked up an endorsement from former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday.

Soderberg served as a U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under President Bill Clinton.  She was also the director of the University of North Florida’s Public Service Leadership Program.

“At the White House and as an Ambassador to the United Nations, Nancy brokered international peace deals, and helped develop and promote U.S. national security policy. She understands what it’s like to bring both sides to the table and solve complex issues,” Biden said in the endorsement announcement.

Soderberg is one of three Democrats running for the Sixth District seat. Three Republicans have also filed to run.

Current District Six Representative Ron DeSantis, a Republican, is running for governor.  

Primary elections are August 28.

"I’ve known Joe for years, and his leadership and dedication to our country has inspired not only myself, but millions of others. I'm thrilled to have him on my team in this election,” said Soderberg.

Florida’s Sixth Congressional District includes the cities of Palm Coast and Daytona Beach.
