“I am very excited about the possibility of Vice President Biden entering the race for President,” he wrote.
“Vice President Biden has connected with America on both a personal and professional level throughout his remarkable career as a public servant,” Burn continued. “A bridge builder throughout his time in the Senate and as Vice President, Joe Biden is a strong leader Americans can connect with and trust in to speak from the heart.”
Burn announced he would be stepping down as Chairman on Sept. 12th back in July.
He got into a confrontation with Tom Wolf after the future Governor pushed for Katie McGinty as Chair after he won the nomination. Burn refused to step aside and Wolf effectively created his own party-in-exile.
In this context, Burn’s announcement seems to be the final move of a maverick Democratic Chairman. Meanwhile, the Vice President will be in Pittsburgh for Labor Day.
