A political action committee known as Time for Biden was formed in January 2018, seeking Biden's entry into the race.[5]

In March 2019, Biden said that he may run.[6] In mid-March 2019, he told a gathering of supporters that he may need their energy "in a few weeks".[7]

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.[8] However, later reports said that Biden is still not sure if he will run.[3][4]
