Default Washington Post Fire fighters union expects Biden to run, despite continued deliber

The head of the nation's largest fire fighters union said Tuesday his organization was moving ahead with plans to support Vice President Biden for a presidential campaign that he's yet to enter, expecting an announcement in "short order" to clarify the situation.

Harold Schaitberger, general president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, said that his "recent conversations" with Biden had left him with the impression that the vice president was likely to enter the race. While the union's full board still must ratify any endorsement, those conversations have mostly taken place, he said, and the IAFF's official support really only needs one final act -- Biden's candidacy.

"This union is preparing itself for the vice president to make a decision to announce his candidacy," Schaitberger said in an interview Tuesday afternoon.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...-deliberation/

Biden really needs to announce soon. Not just for polls, money, and the campaign, but because some states have early deadlines for filing for a presidential run. Once those deadlines pass, a candidate cannot participate in the primaries.
