DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign has already gotten some backing from one Alabama politician.

U.S. Senator Doug Jones tweeted his support of Biden’s campaign shortly after his announcement to run.

WTVY caught up with him a few hours later.

"I've always felt he would be an outstanding president of the United States,” said Jones. “I still believe that. He speaks to everyone. He really has that voice and can bring people together to find that common ground, and I think that's what folks are looking for."

Jones says Biden is an old friend of his, and he's known him for 40 years.
