The 2020 presidential campaign of Joe Biden, former United States Vice President and former Senator from Delaware, launched his presidential campaign on April 25, 2019. It was expected to be launched on April 24, 2019, though later reporting on April 22 showed that earlier reports about the launch date were not true and that there is no known facts about the exact launch date and locations of campaign rallies.

Background

A political action committee known as Time for Biden was formed in January 2018, seeking Biden's entry into the race.

In March 2019, Biden said that he may run. In mid-March 2019, he told a gathering of supporters that he may need their energy "in a few weeks".

On April 19, 2019, The Atlantic said that Biden planned to officially announce his campaign on April 24, 2019 in an online video, followed by a launch rally in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or Charlottesville, Virginia. Many big company donors were ready to donate to his campaign. However, later reports said that Biden is still not sure if he will run. On April 25, 2019, Biden officially launched his election campaign. If Biden his elected, he would become the 46th president of the United States.
