Saying he is “in the best position to beat Donald Trump,” Nevada Rep. Dina Titus announced on CNN Monday that she has endorsed Joe Biden for president.

Titus is reportedly the first Democratic member of Congress from an early state to endorse a presidential contender.

“The next President will inherit a complete mess after years of chaos from the Trump Administration. Joe won’t need any on-the-job training,” Titus said in a statement released from the Biden campaign.

Titus and Biden have scheduled a joint conference call with media for noon Monday.
