Bi­den to launch su­per PAC; Pence al­ready has one up

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

Former Vice Pres­i­dent Joe Bi­den launched a new su­per PAC Thurs­day fur­ther fuel­ing sus­pi­cion of his own pres­i­den­tial as­pi­ra­tions, ac­cord­ing to mul­ti­ple re­ports.

Amer­i­can Pos­si­bil­i­ties PAC will be “ded­i­cated to elect­ing peo­ple who be­lieve that this coun­try is about dream­ing big, and sup­port­ing groups and causes that em­body that spirit.”

But his wife, Jill Bi­den, said on CBS News that the launch­ing of this PAC doesn’t mean a pres­i­den­tial run.

“You know Joe is not go­ing away — I mean he loves pol­i­tics, he loves what he’s do­ing, and he said he would stay in­volved. And so he set up this PAC be­cause he’s go­ing to be in­volved in the midterm elec­tions.”

Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence also launched a PAC a few weeks ago, mak­ing him the first sit­ting vice pres­i­dent to do so.

The Great Amer­ica Com­mit­tee plans to sup­port can­di­dates, in­clud­ing him­self and Pres­i­dent Trump in 2018 and 2020.
