Former Vice President and perceived front-runner Joe Biden will formally be announcing his candidacy for president of the United States Thursday April 25th.
Biden, age 76, will be making his long expected announcement via a video and is expected to follow up his announcement talking to union members early in the following week.
Biden’s political career spans five decades and this announcement will mark Biden’s third run for the presidency. Many in the political world feel Joe Biden is their best shot in beating incumbent president Donald Trump because of Biden’s centrist political ideology and appeal to white working class voters in the midwest.
Most polls show Joe Biden running in 1st or 2nd place in the primary against a crowded field of Democrats. His closest competitor currently is Bernie Sanders who has raised over 18 million dollars in the first fundraising quarter.
