Former vice president Joe Biden's daughter Ashley revealed Thursday that her father is considering a 2020 run to regain the White House for the Democratic Party.
Ashley Biden said in an interview with Women's Wear Daily that her father was pondering a run, and that she thinks he will ultimately decide to do it.
The Biden family has been going through a grieving process for Joe's son Beau, who died in 2015 while serving as attorney general of Delaware. But Ashley Biden said the family has stayed united around her father as he considers the decision.
"He is more vivacious and has more energy in his 70s than I do in my 30s," she said of her father. "The man is sort of supercharged. So I think, if we get to that [decision] point, yeah, I think he will do it."
"A lot can happen in four years and we know this as a family," she said. "If he is in good health, knock on wood, and seeing what the landscape is at the time, yeah, I think he is considering it."
She expressed enthusiasm about the prospect of Biden running for president, but added that he has not decided for sure. Asked whether he will run, Ashley Biden said, "I hope so."
