There is no denying that Joe Biden was a late entry into the 2020 race for President. The man was largely absent in the run-up to the primaries, and stayed largely out of the usual Democratic dust-up about Bernie Sanders.
But then, suddenly, he was there, attempting to pull some sort of “elder statesmen” voodoo on the whole thing, essentially daring the populace to vote for Trump again.
What’s more, his manufactured grandfatherly persona was enough to snatch up votes in the moderate midwest, and at least make the contest close enough for a plausible victory.
But we know he didn’t want to be there, and now it is being revealed that it took a bipartisan effort to convince Biden to run.
Is America headed for a recession?
Republican Sen. Mitt Romney urged Joe Biden to run for president against Donald Trump, a new book said.
“You have to run,” Romney told Biden over the phone on the night of the 2018 midterm elections, the book said. It was the same night Romney was elected to the US Senate to represent Utah.
The exchange is detailed in the upcoming book “The Long Alliance: The Imperfect Union of Joe Biden and Barack Obama by Gabriel Debenedetti”, a copy of which was obtained by The Guardian.
There was no missing the point.
“At one point [Biden] connected with Mitt Romney, who’d been easily elected to the Senate that night as a rare Trump-opposing Republican. They were warm as Biden cheered Romney’s win,” the Guardian’s extract said.
“Then Obama’s old rival got to the point: You have to run, Romney said.”
The news won’t be welcomed by the GOP, but it may not be all that surprising given Romney’s staunch and unflinching disdain for Donald Trump.
