Vice President Joe Biden announced today he will not seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.
Biden said his focus in recent months has been on his family’s grief over the death of his son, Beau Biden, from brain cancer earlier this year, leaving too little time for him to mount a successful campaign.
“There’s no timetable for this process,” he said. “The process doesn’t respect or much care about things like filing deadlines or debates or primaries or caucuses.”
