Joe Biden 2020?

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

Vice President Joe Biden told reporters Monday he’s planning on running for president in 2020.

Biden opted against throwing his hat in the ring for the 2016 election cycle after losing his son, Beau Biden, to brain cancer in May.

“I’m going run in 2020. What the hell,” he said, according to a tweet by Fox News’ Chad Pergram.

When reporters inquired on whether or not he was joking, he reportedly replied: “I’m not committing not to run. I learned a long time ago, fate has a strange way of intervening,”

Biden was on Capitol Hill Monday to preside over the Senate as it voted on the 21st Century Cures Bill, which Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announcedwould be renamed after Biden’s late son.

A number of top Democratic donors were not satisfied with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as their options, and encouraged Biden, 74, to hop in the race, but it wasn’t enough to sway him.
