Biden fading from presidential campaign chatter
WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to the crucial presidential nominating state of Iowa will find no shortage of speculation about his political future.
Iowa will kick off the 2016 state-by-state votes that choose the major presidential nominees.
But there are few signs the vice president is taking steps toward a third run for the White House. Hillary Rodham Clinton is the presumed Democratic frontrunner.
Biden’s name, meanwhile, has faded as a potential candidate.
Allies to the two-time former candidate say he isn’t organizing in early voting states such as New Hampshire and Iowa. No staff has been lined up to take on important roles in a potential bid.
Biden planned to speak Thursday in Des Moines about the economy and expanding access to higher education.
