POST: Biden ‘close to announcing’ 2020 run

WASHINGTON (New York Post) — Joe Biden may finally be ready to join the 2020 presidential race.

The former vice president is telling close friends and supporters that he will be running for the Democratic nomination to unseat President Trump — but needs to raise money, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Biden, the Journal reported, wants to raise several million dollars for his campaign but is concerned that he can not garner the kind of online support given to candidates such as Beto O’Rourke and Bernie Sanders.

In the first 24 hours after their announcements, O’Rourke hauled in $6.1 million and Sanders collected nearly $6 million.

Biden reportedly wants to garner enough money to make an announcement of a large fundraising amount when he enters the race.

The former vice president under President Obama, and critic of Trump, has flirted with the idea of running for months.
