Joe Biden expected to announce presidential run next week


WASHINGTON, D.C. (WEHT/CNN) – Joe Biden is expected to formally join the 2020 presidential race next week.

Sources said even though he’s pushed his own deadline back a few times, he’s ready to make his candidacy official.

The former vice president has been in hot water recently after two women accused him of unwanted touching.

He released a video promising to be more respectful of personal space.

Biden began his political career in 1972 after winning a seat in the US Senate at 29-years-old.

He was re-elected six times before becoming the 47th US Vice President.
