Report: Biden Hires Obama Advisors, May Announce 2020 Presidential Bid Next Week

Report: Biden Hires Obama Advisors, May Announce 2020 Presidential Bid Next Week

It’s happening.

After months of speculation, it looks like former Vice President Joe Biden will join the crowded 2020 Democrat presidential field.

CNBC reported that Biden hired advisors from President Barack Obama’s administration while other outlets claimed Biden will make his announcement next Wednesday.

From CNBC:

Many of these people didn’t work within Biden’s office throughout Obama’s tenure as president, but they have extensive campaign experience ranging from political consulting to communications, according to sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

Since their time in the Obama White House, some of these aides have gone on to work on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and later helped Democrats retake the U.S. House of Representatives during the 2018 congressional midterm elections, these people said.

Numerous former Obama White House advisors who have been brought on to work with Biden’s team, have yet to hear where the campaign will be headquartered. But they expect it will be either in Delaware or Pennsylvania. Biden was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania and as a Senator, represented the First State for over three decades.

Stacey blogged on Thursday that Biden is still at the top of polls along with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Sanders is in first place for the first time since places began their polls for the 2020 presidential election. Stacey noted the significance of Biden maintaining a large margin over the more diverse portion of the field:

Not only is the Emerson poll welcome news for Sanders and “Mini B” Buttigieg, but Biden has to feel good, too. Though he came in second place in this one, he’s clearly weathered the storms surrounding the numerous accusations of inappropriate touching that have plagued him over the last several weeks.

Also, once Biden officially announces, he’s likely to get a good 4 or 5 percentage point bump out of it on top of the big numbers he’s steadily put up for months.

The negativity may not end soon. From The Atlantic:

Already the scrutiny has started, with attention to his opposition to school busing in the 1970s, as well as his chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee during Anita Hill’s testimony in the Clarence Thomas hearings in 1991, which many women have never forgiven him for, and which he’s stumbled over in trying to explain since. “I wish I could have done something,” is how he put it in late March, infuriating people who pointed out that he was in charge of the process.

Besides, what’s come out so far, in the press and from other campaigns, is only the beginning of what Biden will have to explain. “There is a concentrated [opposition research] dump on him and will continue to be,” one person close to Biden said earlier this month, reflecting on the touching accusations and expecting more. But after a few days of intense coverage, which eventually included about 10 women speaking out, the news cycle—and the outrage cycle—tumbled forward. That might change with his announcement.

If it does happen, Biden will release a video on Wednesday. From there he will “embark on a tour of early voting states and then hold a formal campaign kickoff event.” He may start in Philadelphia before going to Delaware or Charlottesville, VA.

The Atlantic wrote that Biden decided on this at the last minute, which means he lacks money “for any real campaign operations, since he doesn’t have an active campaign account.” He and those around him hope that the enthusiasm over his run will bring in millions right away.

Biden 2020: Grope and Change!

Do you think Obama called him and said, “This is a BFD?”

Out of this field, Biden is the Democrats’ best choice. I don’t think he has the stamina.


Let’s hope this sad sack globalist child predator wins the Dem nomination.

Trump wins 2020 in landslide victory…

Maybe, he’ll bring some dignity to the campaign.

I don’t see him being left enough for the current make up of the National Socialist party. Unless he comes out as a gay transgender… then he might have a shot. Despite the talk of him being the front runner, expect a lot of negatives coming out about him in the weeks ahead. What has been talked of already, his groping, and the hints of his corruption for his son’s benefit, is just the warning shots to him. Once he announces the uglier stuff will likely come out, and he may regret ever stepping into this.

This perpetual “reluctant bride” act of his makes it look like he isn’t really all that interested in the job.

    He has more “announcements to announce an announcement” than chuck Hagel used to.

    Who, by the way, was one of the few people who could make Biden look like NOT the dumbest man in the room

Biden is an old white male, and neither the Socialists nor the hard-core “progressives” will be enthusiastic about him. Bernie is an old white male as well, and the other Socialists will love him, but the “progressives” value race and sex over everything else (is that the definition of “racism”?), and they won’t be enthusiastic. Identity politics works that way.

The Dems would like to nominate a minority female lesbian transgender Socialist. That’s a small group to choose from. Identity politics works that way. Maybe RuPaul is interested?

The collective IQ of the entire field of (D) candidates is a negative number.

What a setup! The reason so many of the left candidates are so far to the left is to make Biden more appealing. Don’t fall for it. These people are dangerous

    That is an interesting concept. Rope in everyone by having a field of 20 candidates whose wide range of focus can encompass each voter. Then, slowly reduce the field, as aaa candidate drops out and pledges their voting block support bbb. Then bbb drops out with the support going too ccc, …, and eventually they all collapse to zzz who is the only candidate left standing, but somehow the transgendered tattoo covered bike commuters are fully behind the old white guy having been gradually steered there over the past year. I don’t think the dems wanted Hillary, but somehow they ended up being saddled with her. And boy did we dodge a bullet by her not letting Bernie run.

the Hands On candidate.

All woke and conscientious Dems should support this upstanding man to be the Democrat nominee for POTUS, he is clearly the most qualified.

Will they be able to provide advice to Biden from jail after being convicted of sedition and treason?
