Even though the presidential race just ended, we already know one of the possible candidates for 2020. Vice President Joe Biden announced that he’s planning to run for the highest position in the state in four years, but he’s “not committed to anything”.
Is this decision permanent?
When asked by reporters if he would run for office after Donald Trump’s upcoming term ends, Mr. Biden wasn’t initially very clear: “Yeah, I am. I am going to run in 2020,” he said. He eventually mentioned the position he’s aiming, though. “For president. And also, you know so, what the hell man, anyway,” Biden added, according to The Independent.
Joe Biden would be an experienced candidates, as he pursued the Democratic party’s nomination in 1988 and 2008, but eventually suspended his campaign early, in the primaries. Also, back in 2015, he ruled out the possibility of running, since he would’ve done it against Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. However, he did campaigned for the former secretary of state this year.
Biden, a possible record breaker!
If he decides to try his chances in 2020 and eventually wins the race, Mr. Biden could break the record for oldest US president, currently held by Ronald Reagan, who was 77-years old in 1989, when he left office. Joe Biden is now 73, three years older than President-elect Donald Trump.
