Early polling shows Biden in the top tier of the crowded Democratic field but in close competition with Bernie Sanders
Joe Biden will launch his 2020 campaign this week, sources close to the former vice-president said. He will make his announcement in a video to be released on Thursday and plans to hold an event in Pittsburgh on Monday.
Biden was initially expected to kick off his campaign on Wednesday before delaying his launch. Early polling shows Biden in the top tier of the Democratic field but in close competition with the Vermont senator Bernie Sanders for frontrunner status.
