There has been heavy speculation that Biden would run for the Democratic nomination. It was unclear, however, if he would be willing to endure the campaign trail following the death of his son earlier this year.
U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA-13) took to social media Monday to say Biden would be running.
I have a very good source close to Joe that tells me VP Biden will run for Prez— US Rep Brendan Boyle (@RepBrendanBoyle) October 19, 2015
Calls within the party for Biden to run have been fueled by concerns over Hillary Rodham Clinton's email controversy and declining popularity. Her strong debate performance last week dampened some of that talk.
