BREAKING REPORT: Hillary Beware, Joe Biden is Hiring Staff for a Run for President!

Looks like crazy Uncle Joe is getting ready to throw his hat in the ring to run for the Democrat nomination for president. I think this makes like the 30th time he’s tried it…

Seriously, though, Vice President Biden has been trying to run for president since the 1980s. He finally made the number 2 spot, of course, but looks like he is once again eying the big chair. And new polls show that he’d be a threat to Hillary’s chances for the nomination.

Anyway, Reuters has a new report[1] that Biden seems to be gearing up for a real run for the nomination.

A group of Joe Biden supporters trying to build momentum for a White House run by the vice president is hiring paid staff in about a dozen crucial primary states.

The political action committee backing the vice president, Draft Biden, has begun building operations in 11 states holding primary elections on “Super Tuesday” in March 2016, two of the group’s officials told Reuters, an important series of votes for any candidate seeking their party‚Äôs nomination.

Draft Biden doesn’t have a firm number for how many staff in total it will hire in those states, said Josh Alcorn, a senior advisor to the group, but the recruitment process is under way.

Whatever the number, adding paid staffers in the 11 states suggests a growing confidence within Draft Biden that Biden will mount a challenge to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the front runners for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The expansion means Biden would have a far broader and more sophisticated infrastructure than previously known should he decide to enter the race.

If he’s hiring, he’s serious.
