‘I’m running’, Biden says, as pressure mounts on campaign

Former Vice President Joe Biden has officially announced that he will be entering the race for the 2020 presidential election. With mounting pressure from supporters and critics alike, Biden has finally made the decision to throw his hat into the ring.

“I’m running for president,” Biden declared in a video released on his social media accounts. “We are in a battle for the soul of this nation. If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.”

Biden’s announcement comes after months of speculation surrounding his potential candidacy. Many Democratic voters have been eagerly awaiting his decision, as he has consistently polled as one of the top contenders for the party’s nomination.

However, Biden’s campaign is not without its challenges. The former vice president has faced criticism from some within his own party for his handling of the Anita Hill hearings during Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation process in the early 1990s. Biden has also been accused of inappropriate behavior towards women, which he has apologized for but has continued to face scrutiny over.

Despite these challenges, Biden remains a formidable candidate with a long history of public service. As vice president under President Barack Obama, Biden was widely seen as a trusted and experienced leader. His ability to connect with working-class voters and his strong record on issues such as healthcare and climate change make him a strong contender for the Democratic nomination.

Biden’s entry into the race adds another layer of complexity to an already crowded field of Democratic candidates. With over 20 contenders vying for the nomination, the race is shaping up to be one of the most competitive in recent memory.

As Biden hits the campaign trail, he will be focusing on issues such as healthcare, climate change, and economic inequality. He will also be working to distinguish himself from his Democratic rivals and present himself as the best candidate to take on President Trump in the general election.

With his official announcement, Biden has made it clear that he is ready to take on the challenges of a presidential campaign. As the race heats up, all eyes will be on the former vice president to see if he can secure the Democratic nomination and ultimately defeat President Trump in 2020.
