Former US Vice President is planning to launch his presidential bid this coming week.
Though the exact date and location of the launch are yet to be determined, it is expected that the presidential hopeful who has expressed dissatisfaction with white dominance during Trump’s term will visit states which will conduct their elections early after the announcement. One point of interest to his advisers is the state of Virginia, in Charlottesville where white supremacists fought with an opposing side. The visit is expected to make a clear contrast between the former Vice President and Donald Trump.
A democratic nomination has already attracted 18 popular contenders, but the former VC will be the most experienced of them all, coming second after Sanders (77) age wise with only a year less. The news of the plan was made by three people aware of the plan who spoke out of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak of the information to the public. The announcement which is expected to be made by Wednesday will end speculations concerning his future.
There are however some factors that may hinder Biden’s quest for the top seat. One of them being whether his modest view on matters of national interest will fit with the already growing dynamic party. Biden has also been facing accusations in recent times for his conduct towards women. Though none of his accusers have accused him of sexual misconduct, the former president will have to find answers to such hard questions.
