YLEH Joe Biden

Vice President Joe Biden is not running for president in 2016.

Biden made the announcement Wednesday afternoon at the White House.

He says the window for a realistic bid closed before his family was able to work through the grieving process surrounding the death of his son Beau in May.

“As the family and I have worked through the grieving process, I have said all along and time again what I have said to others, that the process, by the time we get through it, closes the window on mounting a realistic campaign for president… I have concluded it has closed,” Biden said with his wife, Jill Biden, and President Obama standing by his side.
