"Brendan is tough, independent, and honest. He understands the struggles that hard-working families and our union brothers and sisters go through every day," Biden said. "Brendan and his wife, Joanne, have lived a life dedicated to the service of their country and their neighbors. Southern Illinois families deserve to have someone with a heart as big as Brendan's representing them in Congress."

Kelly has also been endorsed by several labor unions and Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL).
