WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden hinted Tuesday that he could reveal his 2020 plans “in a few weeks.”
Appearing at the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) convention in Washington, D.C., Biden was met with chants of “Run, Joe, run.”
“I appreciate the energy you showed when I got up here,” Biden told attendees. “Save it a little longer; I might need it in a few weeks.”
“Be careful what you wish for,” he added.
IAFF leaders have signaled that they are prepared to back Biden if he runs, granting him a key, early labor endorsement.
Biden holds a national lead in the crowded field of Democratic contenders for president, according to an aggregate of various polls compiled by Real Clear Politics.
