Former Vice President Joe Biden has certainly been keeping a close eye on the Democratic field for the 2020 presidential elections. However, is he actually going to run?
Sen. Chris Coons certainly seems to think so. Coons recently told CBS that Biden “is moving closer” to announcing a presidential run.
“He’s someone who I am confident is going to run,” Coons said. “I’m optimistic he’s going to run. Everything is being put in place, but that last decision, which understandably is a big decision.”
Biden has been leading in several polls even though he has not made any official announcement to run.
“Frankly, first, there’s another person his age who’s getting tens of thousands of young, excited people in the last campaign,” Coons stated, referencing Bernie Sanders.
Coons later insisted that Biden’s experience will give him a winning edge over others.
“He has more experience both in the Senate and as vice president in the executive and legislative than any other candidate running,” Coons stated. “Arguably than all other candidates combined.”
“We don’t need someone who’s doing on-the-job training,” he stated.
