Recently, former Vice President Joe Biden stated he could not “think of any reason” why he would not run for president. This may be him hinting he might run for president in the 2020 election.
After Biden addressed the International Association of Fire Fighters’ annual conference in Washington, D.C., MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked him, “Why wouldn’t you run Mr. Vice President?”
Biden responded by saying: “I can’t think of any reason.”
Biden then added that he is “making that decision now” and will have “an announcement soon.”
The former vice president, who is reportedly “95 percent committed to running for president,” had just told the conference that he may need their energy “in a few weeks.”
“I appreciate the energy you all showed when I got up here,” Biden reportedly said. “Save it a little longer, I may need it in a few weeks. Be careful what you wish for.”
Thought many Democrats said Biden is almost certain to run, Biden is still “uneasy” about attacks on his son shady business dealings.
Biden has lead most national and state polls and would enter as a frontrunner if he announces a run for presidency. Biden led the Des Moines Register/CNN Iowa poll, which was held recently, as well as a Monmouth University national poll. Biden placed first in both polls while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was second in both polls.
