April 25, 2019 11:40 a.m.

Symone Sanders, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) press secretary in 2016, has signed on to work on former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign.

According to the Daily Beast, Sanders has recently come down on the former vice president for his jokes about touching women, but has said he’d be “formidable” in the election.

Sanders, 29, will also add diversity and youth to Biden’s team. She’s currently a political commentator for CNN.

The former vice president announced his candidacy officially Thursday morning with a campaign video.
