Announcement delay due to donor courtingPublished: 2 hours ago. Updated: 10/19/2015 at 1:58 PM
A source who reportedly just came back from travels with Joe Biden’s son, Joseph Hunter, told WND the vice president will make an announcement about his presidential aspirations in the next 48 hours – and it will be in the affirmative.
Biden’s delay, the source also said, was due to his reach-out to top Democrat donors who’ve not yet committed to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Biden reportedly wants to be able to boast significant top-dollar donor support at the time he makes his announcement.
Media scrutiny on Monday all pointed to the same conclusion – that Biden would indeed run.
And one Capitol Hill congressman may have let the cat out of the bag, anyway.
Rep. Brendan Boyle, a Pennsylvania congressman, said in a Twitter message he knows Joe Biden will be announcing a run for the White House.
“I have a very good source close to Joe that tells me VP Biden will run for Prez,” he tweeted.
Just minutes before that, Boyle reminded followers in another tweet that Bill Clinton hadn’t launched his own run for the high office in 1992 until October – a seeming response to those on the naysayer side who think Biden won’t run because time is ticking away.
Biden skipped out on the first Democratic Party debate a week ago, despite the fact host network CNN had left open a podium for him to join the stage, even in the final hours.
NBC News reports Biden is expected to make a decision about whether he will enter the presidential race within 48 hours.
Biden spoke with International Association of Fire Fighters President Harold Schaitberger on Friday and was trying to gauge the support of unions, a source told NBC.
He traveled from his home in Delaware to Washington Monday morning where he will address a climate change summit.
