Vice President Joe Biden will enter the presidential race, according to media reports filed on Monday.
“Three sources close to @VP telling me he’s expected to announce he is running but the sources are all urging caution on 48-hr timeline,” chief White House correspondent Ed Henry tweeted.
Henry added that observers should look to Saturday’s Jefferson Jackson dinner in Iowa as a potential announcement event, according to Yahoo News.
Many pundits thought Hillary Clinton’s strong performance in the first Democratic debate on October 13th would convince Biden not to enter the race, but the vice president reportedly can see a path to succeeding the President.
CNN reporter Dana Bash reportedly stated that “A source familiar with the process tells me Biden associates are setting up interviews for potential campaign staff positions,” writes The Daily Beast.
