Vice President Joe Biden gave his most striking and somber answer yet on Thursday about whether he plans to run for President, saying during an appearance at an Atlanta synagogue that he’s unsure if he “has the emotional energy to run.”
“I will be straightforward with you. The most relevant factor in my decision is whether my family and I have the emotional energy to run,” Biden said during a speech at the Ahavath Achim Synagogue in Atlanta. “The honest to God answer is I just don’t know.”
Biden’s son Beau died of brain cancer in May and his death has weighed heavily on America’s Happy Warrior.
