Former United States Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday announced his candidacy in the 2020 presidential run. Weeks ago Biden was charged with sexual harassment by his former female colleagues.
Biden issued a statement early in the morning on Thursday further citing his commitment to "pro-worker" policies and close involvement in Barack Obama's presidency as the reasons to enter the 2020 elections fray.
"Everything that has made America America is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Biden said in a video statement.
Biden's candidacy is likely to hit the campaign of Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who has so far been leading the charts among the Democratic presidential aspirants.
Biden is being described as a potential candidate who will gain the support of the Democratic establishment, while Sanders is being touted as an outsider with "radical socialist" ideas.
