LOS ANGELES: Dwayne Johnson makes his first public political endorsement in favor of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the roads to the 2020 presidential election continue to heat up.

Long rumored to be a republican, Johnson took to social media to express support of the democrat party candidates for president and vice president while confirming he’s a moderate.

“As a political independent & centrist, I’ve voted for both parties in the past,” Johnson says in a tweet. “In this critical presidential election, I’m endorsing Joe Biden & Kamala Harris. Progress takes courage, humanity, empathy, strength, KINDNESS & RESPECT. We must ALL VOTE.”

The former wrestler-turned-actor released a video message explaining how his endorsement comes approximately five weeks from “arguably the most critical election our country has seen in decades” because he hopes to “push this political conversation just a little bit more.”

“As a registered independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Senator Harris, are the best choice to lead our country. And I am endorsing them to become President and Vice President of our United States,” Johnson said in his video announcement supporting the Democratic candidates.

“I’ve never publicly endorsed a presidential candidate or a vice presidential candidate in my life, over my career,” Johnson added in a video Q&A with Harris and Biden that followed the announcement.

Johnson used the opportunity to ask Harris and Biden how they plan to use their time in office to bridge a divided nation. He also explains he came to his decision after having a discussion with both Biden and Harris about a number of important issues.

Johnson has used his social media platforms to spread a political message before. Back in June, Johnson made a passionate plea on Instagram demanding a change in leadership and compassion.
