On Tuesday Vice President Joe Biden declined to jump into the race to lead the Democratic National Committee.
“The vice president is not interested in being DNC chair,” his spokeswoman Kate Bedingfield said, “but he intends to remain deeply involved in helping shape the direction of the Democratic Party moving forward.”
Biden will leave office in January after a 44-year run in the Senate and in his current job, and has said he plans to focus on his cancer research “moonshot” effort sparked by President Barack Obama, in honor of Biden’s late son Beau.
Representative Keith Ellison is also in the running for the position, but the prospect of Biden entering the fray had party leaders interested.
We are going to miss this wonderful man!!!
