Joe Biden can take part in the presidential race - at the call of his deceased son
72, US vice president Joe Biden, is weighing the chance to take part in the presidential race. He was called to this by his sons, Hunter and Bo Biden, who died last month at the age of 46 years from brain cancer.
Writes about this on Monday, 29 June, edition The Wall Street Journal.
“It's no secret that Bo wanted to see his father as president. If he wants to fulfill the will of the deceased, he will run for office, ”the newspaper quotes Dick Harputlyan, who previously led the Democratic Party in South Carolina.
Hunter, the second son of the vice-president, also calls on his father to join the election race, as James Smith, a member of parliament in the same state, told reporters. According to the publication, Biden will make a final decision in August of this year.
If the vice president decides to fight for the post of head of the White House, he will have to “catch up” with fellow party rivals: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont.
A survey of the FOX News television channel indicates that 11% of respondents are ready to vote for Biden. At the same time, Clinton is gaining 61%, and Sanders - 15%. Former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, who officially entered the fray in May this year, received only 2%
Recall that Biden had already taken part in the presidential election as a candidate - in the 1988 and in the 2008.
