Joe Biden officially running for president

Capitol Review

After months of speculation, former Vice President Joe Biden has made it official – he will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.

Biden made the announcement in a campaign video, which begins with him calling out President Trump for his response to protests and violence by white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va., back in 2017.

This is Biden’s third run for the Democratic presidential nomination. He had short-lived bids in 1988 and 2008, and also considered a run in 2016, but ultimately opted against it.

Biden served as vice president under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017. Before that, he represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate for 36 years.
