Consider the game officially changed. James Comey has voted in his Democratic primary, and the lucky winner of his endorsement is â€¦ Joe Biden:
Voted in first Dem primary to support party dedicated to restoring values in WH. I agree with @amyklobuchar: We need candidate who cares about all Americans and will restore decency, dignity to the office. There is a reason Trump fears @joebiden and roots for Bernie. #Biden2020

Thatâ€™s great and all, James, but did you ever stop to consider how Joe Biden might feel about your vote of confidence? Maybe Biden rapid response director Andrew Batesâ€™ take will provide a little insight:
Yes, customer service? I just received a package that I very much did not order. How can I return it, free of charge? https://t.co/NK4VrYGzT1

Of course, not everyoneâ€™s amused:
This isâ€¦ not a good look.

Not cool. Be gracious.

Please be gracious. The correct response is thank you or say nothing.

Youâ€™d think candidates would want votes. Grow up.

Maybe Bates is just thinking about this from a practical standpoint:
The guy that helped Trump win the election, endorses the guy that will help Trump win reelection.
James Comey is the best Republican Operative ever.

Will Team Bidenâ€™s strategy pay off?
As a Biden voter I am seriously reconsidering my vote if this is how his campaign is going to act!

Ugh, Iâ€™m literally just heading out to vote (for Biden) and this snarky answer is giving me pause. This is exactly what I want to get away from. Damn.
