A Democratic congressman from Pennsylvania said Monday he has a “very good source” that tells him Vice President Joe Biden will indeed enter the race for the White House.

Rep. [crscore]Brendan Boyle[/crscore] made the comment Monday on Twitter: “I have a very good source close to Joe that tells me VP Biden will run for Prez.”

Biden, still grieving over the death of his son this summer, is believed to be weighing a challenge to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination but insiders are conflicted on whether he will ultimately do it.

Biden unsuccessfully sought the party’s nomination for president in 1988 and 2008.

With filing deadlines fast approaching, it makes sense that Biden would make an announcement about his plans sometime soon.
