The media have been speculating for nearly two months about whether Biden would run and if he did, whether he could win, according to Washington Post columnist Daniel Drezner. And a group called “Draft Biden” has sprung up in hopes of pressuring the Democrat to run.
Adding an emotional component to the decision, the New York Daily News reported that Biden’s son, Beau, who died of brain cancer, had urged his father to run before passing away. U.S. Representative Brendan Boyle also said he had sources reporting Biden will run.
I have a very good source close to Joe that tells me VP Biden will run for Prez
