The former minority leader in the state's House of Representatives almost became the nation's first black female governor and the first Democrat to win a gubernatorial election in Georgia in two decades, but lost the election.

First, it could be risky in the debates, as Biden might be asked why consideration of other Democrats - namely, those he's running against for the presidential nomination - wasn't appropriate.

Biden made headlines earlier this week when he seemingly acknowledged that he was running, according to reporting from HuffPost.

"President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the Court", Biden said at the time.

A third source with direct knowledge of Biden's plans offered a caveat, saying the former vice president was very close to running, but "it's not 100 percent". And in the past two weeks, Biden's strongly hinted that he would be running.

Federer was warming up on another court at the same time as Nadal and figured the match was on. Coming into the contest Federer had won 20 straight finals when claiming the opening set.

The Journal-Constitution also reported Abrams has met with other Democrats who are already confirmed presidential candidates as she ponders what is next in her political life.

He added, "I think something like this would obviously generate a lot of attention, but Joe Biden going to get attention anyway because he's leading in the polls and because he's got probably close to 100% name recognition, and because a lot of people see him as a safer choice than a lot of the more left-leaning candidates in the Democratic primary contest".

I actually think Biden's problem is the opposite of what he thinks it is. "At the end of the day he'll go out there and make his own case", explained Elleithee, a senior spokesman for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign who later served as communications director for the Democratic National Committee. That topped the $5.9 million raised by Sanders in one day, and the $1.5 million raised by Harris.

Mark Putnam, a Democratic advertising and video maker who worked for Obama and several of last year's successful congressional candidates, was seen last weekend surveying scenes outside Biden's childhood home in Scranton, Pennsylvania, according to the political news website Politico.
