Joe Biden has announced that he’ll decide on a 2020 run within the next couple of weeks.
Biden is reportedly leaning towards throwing his hat in the ring.
The Daily Express reported:
The former Vice President told a senior Democratic official he is likely to run and his aides have said he must move quickly in the Democratic primary, insiders told the New York Times. Mr Biden is said to be under pressure from party donors to make up his mind no later than the end of January, or risk losing their support. The news comes after Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her candidacy on December 31.
Over the Christmas holiday, Mr Biden spent some time in the US Virgin Islands calling and texting potential supporters.
In one of these calls he reportedly said: “If you can persuade me there is somebody better who can win, I’m happy not to do it.”
He added: “But I don’t see the candidate who can clearly do what has to be done to win.”
He’s right, but don’t think that he’s an exception.
