JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Former Vice President Joe Biden will join the crowded Democratic primary field with an online video announcement on Thursday, followed by an event with union workers in Pittsburgh on Monday, NBC News reported Tuesday.

Sources directly involved with planning told NBC that Biden will follow up the announcements with trips to all four early voting states during the next few weeks.

Biden has waffled for months on whether he intends to run and is known to be the candidate most concerning to President Trump. Biden has enjoyed strong support from moderate, middle-class Democratic voters.
