Former Vice-President Joe Biden will official launch his 2020 campaign this week.

A source close to Biden says he will make the announcement via video which will be released this Thursday.

CNN reports:

“The former vice president’s team has been laying the campaign groundwork for months, with Biden’s decision growing less secretive or suspenseful by the day. But now that he has given the green light to his advisers, Biden is facing one of the biggest challenges of his half-century career in politics.

He is scheduled to hold his first campaign event in Pittsburgh on Monday, a source said, and plans to hit the road to the early-voting states of Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire in the coming days.”

This will be Biden’s “third run for the presidency but he will enter this crowded Democratic field already in the top spot in several polls.”
