The McCain family intends to support former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential primary (when he gets in the race), and if he’s the nominee, in the general election against President Donald Trump.
Yet the family is still debating with Biden when to voice their support, out of concern that their endorsement could hurt the former vice president in the primaries, the Washington Examiner reported.
Cindy McCain took to Twitter to deny the report.
Joe Biden is a wonderful man and dear friend of the McCain Family. However, I have no intention of getting involved in presidential politics.

The families have known each other for decades but reportedly became closer when John McCain was diagnosed with the same cancer that Biden’s son died from.
Biden cancelled a campaign kickoff scheduled for Wednesday in Charlottesville, Virginia, and is now planning to do a video rollout on Thursday.
