Joe Biden 2020 Campaign


The 2020 presidential campaign of Joe Biden began on April 25, 2019, when he released a video announcing his candidacy in the 2020 Democratic party presidential primaries. Biden, the former vice president of the United States and a former U.S. senator from Delaware, had been the subject of widespread speculation as a potential 2020 candidate after declining to be a candidate in the 2016 election.

Biden is generally described as a moderate. His positions include codifying Roe v. Wade into statute, a public option for health insurance, decriminalization of recreational cannabis, passing the Equality Act, free community college, and a $1.7 trillion climate plan embracing the framework of the Green New Deal. He supports regulation as opposed to a complete ban on fracking.

As a former vice president, Biden entered the race with very high name recognition. From his campaign announcement up to the start of elections, he has been the candidate most identified as the frontrunner. He led most national polls through 2019, but did not rank as one of the top three candidates in either the 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses or the New Hampshire Democratic primary. He won a landslide victory in the 2020 South Carolina Democratic primary on February 29, 2020, which was widely seen as reinvigorating his campaign. In March, Biden was endorsed by 10 of his former competitors, bringing the total number of such endorsements to 12. Biden earned enough delegates on Super Tuesday 2020 to pull ahead of Senator Bernie Sanders. On April 8, after Sanders suspended his campaign, Biden became the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

Re: Joe Biden 2020 Campaign


On Lawrence O'Donnell's MSNBC program "The Last Word" on Thursday, May 14, 2020, Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams appeared in a town hall format.

At the beginning of the program, O'Donnell asked Biden if he was making an announcement regarding Abrams, given that Biden has asked Abrams to participate with him. Biden demurred and noted only that Abrams was an intelligent woman who deserved attention.

All through the questions (pre-recorded from people around the country) that were answered by Abrams, she sounded like his running mate in her support of Biden. She was very well informed on the major issues and was a strong advocate for improved voting, especially among minority populations. She was very impressive.

If this was an audition, she passed with flying colors.

I wish I had seen that. I'm very much impressed by her every time I see her. This would have been a feast.

Re: Joe Biden 2020 Campaign


Belle, on Saturday and Sunday nights, MSNBC will often show reruns of the best shows of the week. I'll lay odds you will find it there. I just checked YouTube and couldn't find it.

Robbie, like you, I was SO impressed with her. In fact, she did a better job answering questions than Biden did. But she was very smart in putting her answers in such a way as to highlight Biden's golden star, rather than to out-brighten it. I was very, very impressed.
