Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Shares Who He’s Voting For In 2024 Election


Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has announced he will endorse Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election.

Kerr, in an interview with MSNBC, reported, “It’s clear that President Biden is really interested in implementing gun safety measures, commonsense gun violence prevention measures.”

“I’ve been doing a lot of work the last ten years with a lot of different gun safety and prevention people like Brady, Giffords, Sandy Hook Promise, March For Our Lives. I’ve learned so much, and I know that we can prevent lives,” shared Kerr.

The five-time NBA champion concluded his statement by adding, “President Biden is adamant that he’s going to push for commonsense laws that can do that. I know that  President Trump will not do that.”

Check out what Fox LA reported:

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is endorsing President Biden for re-election, and he explained why he’s behind the candidate he supported in 2020.

“It’s clear that President Biden is really interested in implementing gun safety measurements, commonsense gun violence prevention measures,” Kerr told MSNBC.

“I’ve been doing a lot of work the last 10 years with a lot of different gun safety [and] prevention people like Brady [United], Giffords, Sandy Hook Promise, March For Our Lives. I’ve learned so much, and I know that we can prevent lives [from being lost to gun violence].

“President Biden is adamant that he’s going to push for commonsense laws that can do that. I know that [former] President Trump will not do that. So, it’s really a simple choice for me.”

Kerr was asked if he was voting for Biden or didn’t want to vote for former President Trump in this year’s election.

“I’m voting for Joe Biden, but I think the biggest thing for me, everybody needs to vote their conscious,” he said. “I’m voting on a few issues, but this is the main one. I lost my father to gun violence when I was 18 years old, so I know how much pain people go through every single day in this country.

“I know gun violence is the No. 1 killer of children in America. And I know that there’s so much that we can do about this. I think most people out there agree with me, whether you’re Republican or Democrat.

Steve Kerr was previously invited to the Biden Harris to speak about gun violence:

Per The Hill:

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr joined Vice President Harris on Friday for a call with students about gun violence prevention, warning of the dangers of a second term for former President Trump.

“The vast majority of people in this country, regardless of party affiliation, agree with common sense gun safety measures. Eighty percent of … Americans believe in universal background checks. We know that there’s no way Donald Trump would even attempt to actually get some legislation that would lead to that,” Kerr said in remarks on a virtual call.

The NBA coach, whose father was shot and killed in the 1980s, made headlines with his passionate response at a press conference to the 2022 school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, in which he challenged lawmakers to move forward on background checks and other gun protections.
Kerr also offered a hearty endorsement of the Biden-Harris reelection bid, saying there’s “no question” whom he’s voting for in the fall “because of their leadership on the gun violence prevention issue.”

The Biden administration has been engaged with a series of events this week around National Gun Violence Awareness Day, which falls annually on the first Friday in June. Second gentleman Douglas Emhoff is set to attend a Washington Mystics game Friday to kickstart “Wear Orange Weekend,” and the White House will be illuminated with orange lights Friday night to honor gun violence victims and survivors.
