Though former Vice President Joe Biden was widely expected to announce his campaign launch this week, those plans may now be in flux as his team vacillates between different locations and timing options, according to a Monday Philadelphia Inquirer report.

The initial plan, as first reported by the Atlantic, was a video announcement on Wednesday followed by campaign stops in Charlottesville, Virginia then Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s office has reportedly received no permit requests for the big event spaces where Biden would likely speak, if the city was still part of the rollout plan.

Biden has been mulling the decision to enter the race for months, sustaining hits like accusations of making women uncomfortable with his touchiness, but still consistently leading the polls with his hypothetical candidacy.
