CAMPAIGN AND FUNDRAISING SUMMARY
Although vice presidents often go on to seek the presidency (George H.W. Bush and Al Gore, for example), Biden declined to run in 2016, due in part to the death of his son in 2015. He is the only former vice presidential candidate running this year.
Biden announced his presidential campaign after the March 31 Federal Election Commission deadline, and therefore has not yet filed campaign finance data.
