Joe Biden - Democratic Party
April 25, 2019
The former Obama VP was a late entry to the race, formally declaring his run for the presidency on April 25. But he's long been a presumed frontrunner, leading many early polls. This is his third presidential run, and for months he's been telling anyone who'll listen that he'd be the most qualified candidate
for the job. He's also already been under scrutiny over criticism about his behavior with women, prompting him to post a video
promising he'd be "more mindful and respectful" of a woman's "personal space."
Biden has also been prone to embarrassing slips of the tongue, among them placing the assassinations of RFK and MLK in "the late '70s
," mistaking his campaign's text number for a website
, waxing nostalgic about his friendships with Senate segregationists
, and saying
"poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids."
