Vice President Joe Biden is already floating the idea with Democratic donors of running for president in 2016, according to one report.

He broached the subject May 19 at a Cincinnati last week, a source told Politico.com.

That source said Biden brought the subject up himself but told donors he wasn’t sure if he would run.

The story also listed New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and Virginia Senator Mark Warner as Democrats who would also plausibly would consider a run.

Elizabeth Alexander, a spokeswoman for Biden, declined a request to comment from The Daily Caller.

It would hardly be Biden’s first shot at the presidency. He ran in 2008 before being chosen by President Obama to run as vice president. Biden also ran in 1988.
