Rendell Says Biden Won’t Run
There has been speculation on this topic and supporting arguments for each possibility. Some believe he is unlikely to run due to the difficult recovery he is undergoing after the recent passing of his son, Beau Biden.
The Wall Street Journal, however, recently reported that aides of the VP believe he is more likely to run than stand down.
Moreover, recent reports state that some Biden supporters are discretely hiring staff in 11 key states, which they see as evidence of an anticipated bid.
Although it is just conjecture at this point, Rendell made his perspective on the topic clear.
“I think in the end he won’t [run]” said Rendell.
Last week, Biden said there is “no rush” to make up his mind, so speculators will have to wait and see.
UPDATE: Apparently, our story caught the former Governor’s attention:
I'll put an end to this right now – I don't think Biden will wind up running. http://t.co/T6z8MmNnWu
