Biden Is Running Says Democratic Lawmaker: Report

 
 
 

'Giving It a Shot'

Former Vice President Joe Biden is definitely running for president, a senior Democratic lawmaker says, according to an exclusive report at The Hill.

“I’m giving it a shot,” Biden said, in what The Hill reports was a "matter-of-factly" remark "during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week."

The Democrat was not named.

Biden spoke with a group of firefighters Tuesday morning who were very supportive.

“I appreciate the energy you all showed when I got up here,” Biden told them. “Save it a little longer, I may need it in a few weeks. Be careful what you wish for.”

Supporters will have to wait a bit longer. The report adds that Biden's campaign launch "is expected in early April."
