"It's clear" Vice President Joe Biden has launched a "2016 kickoff tour," the Republican National Committee (RNC) said on Friday.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a news release that Biden "seems to be eagerly laying the groundwork for yet another run for the presidency."
"With President Obama looking more like a lame duck every day with little to show for his time in office, Biden is finding it even harder to conceal his own presidential ambitions,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
“And with the president appearing at Biden’s side, it looks like there’s at least two leading presidential candidates running for the Obama third term," he concluded.
The allegations from the RNC were accompanied by a new video entitled "Biden 2016 Kickoff Tour" which asks "can we afford four more years of the Obama/Biden economy?"
