Vice President Joe Biden is not preparing to participate in the first Democratic debate and is unlikely to unveil plans regarding a potential third run for President until late October, according to a report from CNN on Thursday.
While Biden supporters have been busy setting up a support network in case the vice president decides to enter the race, Biden has been clear about taking his time about mounting another campaign.
In late September, Biden told Catholic news organization America Media that running would be a “family decision,” especially following the death of his son Beau.
Biden is 72.
The first Democratic debate is Oct. 13 in Las Vegas. The debate criteria would allow Biden to participate as long as he declares his candidacy by the morning of the debate.
