Barack Obama just dropped one big hint about what he plans to do in 2020
The one big unknown in the 2020 race is what course of action Barack Obama will chart.
Americans got one step closer to receiving an answer.
And that’s because Barack Obama just dropped one big hint about what he plans to do in 2020.
When Joe Biden entered the 2020 Presidential race it stood out like a sore thumb that Barack Obama did not endorse him.
Since that point, doubts have only continued to grow about Biden’s candidacy.
And in the latest blow to Biden, former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick seems poised to enter the race.
The New York Times reports:
Former Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts has told Joseph R. Biden Jr. and other Democratic officials that he is considering making a last-minute entry into the 2020 presidential race, according to three Democrats familiar with the conversations, the latest evidence of how unsettled the party’s primary is less than three months before the Iowa caucuses.
Mr. Patrick, a respected two-term governor and one of the highest-profile black leaders in the party, has told some of the Democratic officials that he doesn’t think any of the candidates have established political momentum and that he thinks there is an opening for somebody who can unite both liberal and moderate voters, according to Democrats who have spoken to him.
He and some of his top advisers had a meeting Sunday in Boston to discuss what a campaign would look like, according to two Democrats. And on Monday, Mr. Patrick personally began reaching out to potential staffers, telling them he was strongly considering a bid and asking if they’d consider working for his campaign.
Patrick even floating a trial balloon about running would never occur without first reaching out to Obama.
Obama and Patrick are very close and The New York Times reported that in August 2017 Obama urged Patrick to get into the race.
Patrick’s hinting of a run now is further proof that Obama sees Biden — and the rest of the field — as fatally flawed candidates who cannot defeat Donald Trump.
