Stirring up serious speculations over his presidential bid in 2016, US Vice President Joe Biden has announced his visit to Iowa next week.
The White House has announced that the American Vice President will be arriving Des Moines on Thursday to tout the set of economical policies of President Barack Obama-led administration at Drake University.
According to the White House officials, the US Vice President is also scheduled to participate in a roundtable talks at Des Moines Area Community College. The officials said that Biden is expected to discuss President Obama’s proposal to offer free community college to the students in the United States.
Meanwhile, Biden’s visit to early caucus state of Iowa has sparked speculation in the political corridors of the country over his presidential bid in 2016 elections.
The political analysts said that the 72-year-old leader can make up to the post as the oldest president if he is elected in 2016 elections. If voted to power, Biden would take the charge of the office at age 74. Biden will then break the record of former President Ronald Reagan, who had assumed the office at age 69.
Even though Biden has not officially revealed his mind over his poll ambitions, but during a January interview he has said that there exists “a chance” of him running for president in 2016, regardless of the decision of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his fellow Democrat who is also seen as a frontrunner for the party nominee.
“But I haven’t made my mind up about that. We’ve got a lot of work to do between now and then. There’s plenty of time,” Biden had said.
A recent poll of voters in Iowa showed Biden trailing both Clinton and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
