Sanders volunteers were told to “vote for him” on Monday by Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet decided if he will run for president.

A group of Bernie supporters at the Pittsburgh Labor Day parade were told by Biden to vote for Sanders, saying “he’s a good man.”

Joshua Sickels, who helps run grassroots efforts in Pittsburgh said Biden gave him a thumbs up and said, “Bernie is a great guy!”

In a speech before hundreds of steelworkers, Biden proclaimed that the media liked to portray him as a populist and said, “They’ll probably say (I’m) competing with Bernie Sanders, who is doing a helluva job by the way.”

Sanders activists in Pittsburgh said around 20 volunteers were present at the parade, holding signs along the route.
