ST. LOUIS – Less than a week before the Missouri Primary, St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic Primary.

Krewson took to Twitter Wednesday morning to make the announcement, calling for “unity and civility.”

As the results from Super Tuesday continue trickling in, Biden leads the race to be his party’s nominee for president. As of early Wednesday afternoon, Biden has 555 pledged delegates, Sen. Bernie Sanders has 489 delegates, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren has 61 delegates. It takes 1,991 delegates to clinch the nomination.

Biden will be holding events in St. Louis and Kansas City this coming Saturday. According to a statement from the campaign, Biden will lay out his vision for America during the rallies.

Biden’s event in St. Louis is on Saturday, March 7 at 11 a.m. The location of the rally was not disclosed, but you can RSVP to the community event here. Later that day, the former vice president is traveling to Kansas City. He will be at the WWI Museum and Memorial at 4:15 pm. Tell event organizers that you are going by clicking this link.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
