Is New PAC Joe Biden’s Last Act in Politics or First Step Towards 2020?

In Politics


Joe Biden isn’t done with politics yet.

The former vice president is launching a new political action committee Thursday that will keep him involved in elections and on the minds of fellow Democrats, potentially helping to lay the groundwork for another presidential bid in 2020.

Biden gave few details about his plans for the new PAC, called American Possibilities, in an email to be sent to supporters Thursday. But the former vice president, who has harbored presidential ambitions for decades, said he wants Americans to “dream big” again.

“The history of this nation is one of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. And that’s who we still are,” Biden wrote in the email, obtained by NBC News. “That’s why the negativity, the pettiness, the small-mindedness of our politics drives me crazy. It’s not who we are.”
