Presidential candidate dropout Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president, ultimately contradicting his criticism of the frontrunner’s record on racial issues and question about his mental health.

Booker, who dropped out of the Democrat presidential primary in January, said Biden would "restore honor to the Oval Office and tackle our most pressing challenges.”

“The answer to hatred & division is to reignite our spirit of common purpose,” Booker said.

“That’s why I’m proud to endorse Joe,” he concluded.

But like Kamala Harris, Booker was one of Biden’s strongest critics, and frequently called him out for his past work with segregationist senators and his position on criminal justice reform.

Last year, Booker also laid doubt over Biden's mental state:

"Look, I've listened to Joe Biden over the years and often thought there were times he was going on or was meandering in his speech," Booker said, according to RealClearPolitics

"There were a lot of moments where a number of us on stage were looking at each other, where [Biden] tends to go on sometimes," he added.

"At one point he's talking about people in communities like mine listening to record players... Vinyl is hot right now, maybe he's cooler than I am, but there are definitely moments where you listen to Joe Biden and just wonder."

Booker also blasted Biden during the presidential debates in August last year, saying:

“There’s a saying in my community: You’re dipping into the Kool-Aid, and you don’t even know the flavor.”

Booker joins a swath of Democrat White House candidates who have endorsed Biden ahead of Tuesday’s crucial primary contests in Michigan, Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, and Washington.

According to a CNN poll, Biden is leading Bernie Sanders by double digits — 52 percent to 36 percent among Democrat voters — for the nomination.
