A new report reveals that former Vice President Joe Biden is now “begging” donors for campaign cash.
CNBC reported that Biden has privately stated that he will run for president and that he’s contacted a group of his supporters Tuesday to ask for help in raising several million dollars from major donors, making it known he’s planning to enter the 2020 presidential election, the Wall Street Journal reported.
He would enter a crowded field of close to 20 presidential candidates that have already declared, or are expected to announce, they will be entering the 2020 race.

Former Vice President Joe Biden reached out to several donors on Tuesday to help him kick off a 2020 presidential campaign with a surge of donations, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Biden expressed concerns that if he ran for president, it would be difficult to top candidates like Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke’s initial shock release of grassroots fundraising.
In February, Biden said that his family had cleared him to run again, which was a major part of his decision process.
