Joe Biden has come to the decision that it is time to make a move. Sleepy Joe has sat idly by while others have taken their jabs. Now, Biden is making his move just a few weeks out of the Iowa caucuses. But his moves involve a lot of pandering, imagine that.
His first move was in comments made on a California podcast discussing the 2020 election. In his statements, he said that he would give Sen. Kamala Harris whatever position she wanted in his administration, including VP. This is a strong move for Biden as he attempts to retain his strong grasp on black voters. He has consistently lead in the black vote for months and appears stronger even recently according to polls.
A Biden Harris campaign was one of my initial thoughts last year as I suggested in this article. I do think that gives some strength to the Biden campaign that he desperately needs. Sen. Ted Cruz may have been the earliest ever to announce a running mate in 2016. Will Biden take a similar approach to attempt to cut off the Sanders momentum?
Sleepy Joe certainly took another aggressive approach when he released new ads attacking President Trump. In the ads, Biden highlights President Trump’s statements about him and that he is best positioned to win states that are must win. Biden is spending $4 million in Iowa ahead of the February 3rd caucus.

In the end, is this too little too late for Biden? He has attempted to stay above the crowd and simply work to defend his time as VP in the Obama White House. But now he has significant competitors that are threatening his potential to be the nominee. Sanders, Warren and Buttigieg are all within potential striking distance. Bloomberg and Steyer lurk in the background waiting to pounce as well.
As I wrote yesterday, the race to the left continues to shift. For now, Sanders has the momentum, but that could easily change. With several candidates in striking distance, the race is still a toss up. Who are you thinking will win? Comment and let us know!
