Beau Biden, son of the vice president, says he is considering running for his dad’s Senate seat but hasn’t made a decision yet.
“I’ve been away from my family for a year, first things first,” Biden said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” after returning from Iraq with the Army National Guard. “There’s time to make that decision.”
“Look, am I considering it? Absolutely. Absolutely,” Biden, who is Delaware’s attorney general, said. “But I’ll be making the decision in due course.”
President Barack Obama is still likely weeks away from a decision on a new Afghanistan strategy.
A BBC report last night created a bit of a stir in saying that the Obama administration had told the British government that it would soon announce a troop increase that “could exceed 40,000.”
