Joe Biden-Stacey Abrams Meeting Stokes 2020 Ticket Rumors

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

Biden has told supporters and former staff that he will run, according to one source who has knowledge of discussions.

But new polling by the University of Chicago's GenForward Survey Project shows that Biden now leads declared and potential Democratic presidential candidates in support among millennial voters.

"Biden, who is nearing his decision to run for president, would seem likely to select a running mate who brings gender, geographic and racial balance to the ticket". Prior to that, Biden represented the state of DE in the US Senate between 1973 and 2009.

First, it could be risky in the debates, as Biden might be asked why consideration of other Democrats - namely, those he's running against for the presidential nomination - wasn't appropriate.

Biden served as vice president from 2009 to 2017 under former President Barack Obama.

Public opinion polls have him as an early favorite, with almost every measure of early support showing him leading. At 76, Biden will be the second oldest candidate in the Democratic primary, after Senator Bernie Sanders. What kind of deal is being made between the two? O'Rourke reportedly raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his candidacy, while Sanders raised $5.9 million within a day of announcing. The news of the meeting triggered a wave of speculation that their political fortunes could intertwine next year.

Putnam crafted an ad for the unsuccessful "Draft Biden" movement that tried to convince Biden to run in 2016.

"Joe Biden is someone who sees the differences in our country and inspires us, reminds us of the ways in which we have overcome them in the past and will lift us up", Coons said.
