'I want to see what Joe is going to do' - Kerry on 2020

Politics A- A A+

Former Secretary of State and failed 2004 presidential candidate John Kerry is reportedly thinking about making another White House run, but he told the New York Times on Tuesday that he is waiting to see if former Vice President Joe Biden will officially enter the 2020 race.

“I want to see what Joe is going to do,” Kerry reportedly told the Times. Kerry reportedly “acknowledged that he had given some consideration to making a 2020 presidential bid of his own.”

Kerry told Harvard’s Institute of Politics last year that he would not be taking a 2020 run off the table even though he was not going to be actively “laying any groundwork.”

“I’ve said I’m not going to eliminate, I’m not taking anything off the table,” Kerry reportedly said at the November event. “But I’m not sitting around — I haven’t been running around to the most obvious states, laying any groundwork or doing anything. Am I going to think about it? Yeah, I’m going to think about it, I’ve said that point blank.”
