Draft Biden group puts up ad: ‘Joe, run’ – USA TODAY
The group seeking to draft Vice President Biden into the 2016 presidential race is airing an ad with a simple message at the end: “Joe, run.”
The ad features Biden talking about the 1972 traffic accident that claimed the lives of his wife and daughter and nearly killed his two sons; one of those sons. Beau Biden, died this year of cancer.
“Things can change in a heartbeat,” Biden said during the speech he delivered this year at Yale University.
The group Draft Biden says it is spending up to $100,000 to air the 90-second ad on national cable networks.
Biden has not said whether he will enter next year’s Democratic primaries.
