Is Joe Biden planing 2020 presidential run?
U.S. Former Vice President Joe Biden told a group of his supporters that he intends to run for president, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a person familiar with the situation.
According to the source, at the meeting on Tuesday Biden asked at least a half-dozen supporters for help in lining up major donors so he can quickly raise several million dollars.
The ex-Vice President also reportedly expressed concern he may not have the same immediate success in raising political funds online as some other Democrats, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Congressman Beto O'Rourke of Texas.
Biden has been contemplating a White House run for some time and continues to lead in polls among Democrats as a favorite to take on President Donald Trump. He would enter a crowded field of close to 20 presidential candidates that have already declared, or are expected to announce, they will be entering the 2020 race, CNBC reported.
