According to The Hill, Vice President Joe Biden was speaking to reporters when he stated that a 2020 presidential run may be in his future.
“I am going to run for president in 2020,” Biden told a group of reporters in the Capitol when asked about his political future.
Asked if he was kidding, the 74-year-old Biden paused for four seconds before saying he is “not committing not to run.”
“I am not committed to anything. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening.”
If he does run, he’ll likely be the early favorite already. In fact, many in the Democratic party were wishing Biden was one of the choices in 2016, however the Vice President opted not to run at all due to his personal life not lining up with his professional. It’s a decision he at one point said he wish he hadn’t made, stating “I regret it every day.”
Biden isn’t the only one who has said he’s considering the possibility of a 2020 presidential bid. Thinking of throwing her hat into the ring for the third time is none other than failed 2016 Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton.
