Joe Biden speaks at the 2020 Presidential Gun Safety Forum in Las Vegas, Nevada, Wednesday Oct. 2, 2019.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has picked up endorsements from three former chairs of the Nevada Democratic party, his campaign announced Friday.

The backing from Roberta Lange, Adriana Martinez, and Sam Lieberman adds to Biden's support from a number of prominent Democrats in the state.

Lange, Martinez and Lieberman said in a video released by the campaign that Biden can stand “head-to-head” with President Donald Trump and unify the country.

Biden was endorsed this week by former governor and senator Richard Bryan. He's also got support from U.S. Rep. Dina Titus, a Democrat who represents a Las Vegas-area congressional district, and former Democratic Gov. Bob Miller.
