Joe Biden will take a crucial first step in running for President in 2020 when he attends the New Hampshire Democrat Party’s fundraising dinner. He declined to attend prior to the 2016 election season because he didn’t want to start rumors he was planning on challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democrat Party nomination.
The New Hampshire event is important because of its “first in the nation” primary status, and as a way to earn early support for an upcoming presidential race.
From the Daily Caller:
“This year’s event may be the first opportunity for a Democrat mulling a possible bid for the party’s next presidential nomination to land some very early face time in one of the most important primary states,” local NH1 Political Director Paul Steinhauser said about the event.
Biden announced last week that he felt he would have won the election if he had run against President Donald Trump instead of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Biden declined to run against Trump after the death of his son Beau in 2015.
Biden will be nearly 78 years old in 2020 if he decided to run. By far the oldest presidential candidate in history.
