In a video released Monday, The International Association of Fire Fighters officially endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president, becoming the first key labor group to endorse a candidate in the 2020 election.

Trump won Pennsylvania's 20 key electoral college votes in the 2016 election, but skepticism is growing on whether or not he can clench the battleground state in the upcoming presidential election.
