    A new super PAC formed by hundreds of former campaign, administration, and political staffers from George W. Bush’s administration will work to get former Vice President Joe Biden elected, saying they are “dismayed and disappointed” by the Trump presidency. The new group, 43 Alumni for Biden, announced their formation on Wednesday, saying their purpose is to “unite and mobilize a community of historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation.”

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Dozens of Republican former U.S. national security officials are forming a group that will back Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, people familiar with the effort said, in a further sign that President Donald Trump has alienated some members of his own party. The group will publicly endorse Biden in the coming weeks and its members plan to campaign for the former vice president who is challenging Trump in the Nov. 3 election, the sources said. It includes at least two dozen officials who served under Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, with...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden landed in some hot water on Friday after making it very clear that he's fully taking the black vote for granted in November, should he receive his party's nomination. “If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black," Biden said during an interview on The Breakfast Club radio show Friday morning. In his subsequent apology , Biden said, "I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted." Oh, but he did, in the very same interview, nonetheless. The former Delaware senator made the false claim...

    “Because they are trying to find out whether or not there is any impact on the use of marijuana, not in leading you to other drugs, but what it effects—does it effect long-term development of the brain,” said Biden. “And we should wait ‘til the studies are done. I think science matters.” Charlamagne responded: “I think we got, I think we got decades and decades of studies from actual weed smokers." “Yeah, I do,” said Biden. “I know a lot of weed smokers.”

    President Trump isn’t very popular among our letter writers, but have you heard what many of our readers are saying about Joe Biden? Neither have I, and it’s my job to read everything, even the unpublished letters. What we’ve received this week about the former vice president has been a smattering of letters on the Tara Reade sexual assault allegation, a few criticisms of his quiet campaign and some quick takes on Trump’s “Obamagate” obsession. This isn’t to say the letters are indicative of a campaign that is going unwatched by voters, but having edited the letters page during the...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer said he accepts Joe Biden’s response to former aide Tara Reade’s accusation that he sexually assaulted her in a Senate hallway in 1993. “I have heard Joe Biden’s explanation, and I think it’s sufficient,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, told reporters Tuesday. No Senate Democrat has said they will abandon support of Biden as a result of Reade’s accusation.

    Joe Biden denied a former Senate staffer’s allegation of sexual assault on Friday, saying “this never happened.” It’s the presumptive Democratic nominee’s first public comment on an accusation of sexual assault by his former Senate staffer, Tara Reade. “I’m saying unequivocally, it never, never happened,” Biden said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Biden said he will ask the National Archives to determine whether there is any record of such a complaint being filed. “The former staffer has said she filed a complaint back in 1993,” Biden said. “But she does not have a record of this alleged complaint....

    U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Friday denied that he sexually assaulted a former Senate aide in 1993, his first public remarks on the subject after he faced intense pressure to address the accusation. “I want to address allegations by a former staffer that I engaged in misconduct 27 years ago,” Biden said in an emailed statement. “They aren’t true. This never happened.” He called on the U.S. Senate to ask the National Archives to release any personnel records that could indicate whether the aide filed a complaint against Biden at the time. He said that personal papers from...

    WASHINGTON — In early March, Joe Biden’s presidential campaign unfurled a public health advisory committee composed of half a dozen heavyweight experts to advise on how best to operate a campaign on a trail that was becoming increasingly dangerous as coronavirus infections spread across the country. The announcement was seemingly designed to, as the New York Times characterized it, “project calm and competence” less than a week after the Trump White House began its chaotic and often antagonistic daily briefings. There was a perception that Biden, in contrast, would have a foil group - a former surgeon general for every...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Wednesday scolded progressives who may “plan to sit this election out or vote for Trump.” She issued her warning after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) announced the suspension of his presidential bid, begging them to remain active and “fight like hell” to oust President Trump and “end the rise of fascism in this country.” Sanders formally ended his year-long campaign on Wednesday, conceding that the path to the nomination simply is not feasible. He tried to encourage supporters, reminding them of their greater movement and contending that they are “winning the ideological battle.” Omar, one of...

    Despite self-isolating at his home in Delaware, US presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden will on Monday begin giving “shadow” briefings on the coronavirus pandemic. The news site Politico reports that the leading Democratic Party candidate for the White House has installed live streaming technology at his house to allow him to give regular updates on the health emergency. Biden currently leads Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race to take on Trump in November’s US presidential election. The former vice president says the shadow briefings are necessary to help inform and protect the American people due to...

    Biden's code name will be "Celtic," according to CNN. The former vice president has Irish Catholic heritage. Congressional leaders and other observers called for Biden to receive Secret Service protection after two protesters shouting, “Let dairy die!” rushed up to him on his stage during an event the night of Super Tuesday. Biden's wife, Jill, and top aide Symone Sanders escorted the protesters off the stage.

    Joe Biden came into Tuesday’s primaries riding a wave of voter confidence about his chances of victory in November. Democratic primary voters in Missouri and Mississippi are more likely to think the former vice president could defeat President Donald Trump in the general election, compared with Biden’s top rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to AP VoteCast surveys in the two states. That perception of electability is part of what is drawing Democrats to rally around the more moderate Biden, who has emerged as the Democratic primary front-runner thanks to moderate and conservative voters moving quickly in his direction. The...

    Mental health professionals who have expressed concern over what they see as Donald Trump’s declining faculties say that similar fears about Joe Biden’s are overblown. “A few stumbled words are not the same as the extreme danger that result from a list of signs that Donald Trump has shown,” Bandy Lee, a psychiatrist on the faculty at the Yale School of Medicine, told Yahoo News, “and none of them apply to Joe Biden.” Yet since Biden’s reemergence as a front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, Lee has been flooded by requests to assess the former vice president’s string of stumbles...

    A business accused of using the Biden name to rake in high-dollar clients was raided by the FBI last month. The FBI searched Ellwood City Medical Center in Pennsylvania and the home of Grant White, the CEO of Americore Holdings, as part of its investigation into the company’s recent Chapter 11 bankruptcy claims, according to RealClearInvestigations. Americore Holdings, a company that acquired and managed rural hospitals, filed for bankruptcy in December to avoid paying its creditors. James Biden, the younger brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, was not directly listed by the FBI in its investigation but has been...

    When Joe Biden left New Hampshire on Tuesday before the votes had been counted in the state’s primary and held an event in South Carolina, it was widely viewed as a sign of desperation by a faltering campaign. But while many have written off Biden’s presidential bid as being on life support, South Carolina political observers and insiders told Yahoo News that he’s still got a good chance of winning the Feb. 29 primary in the Palmetto State. “I think Biden could still win,” said Gibbs Knotts, chair of the political science department at the College of Charleston and the...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Jill Biden made an impromptu visit on Monday morning to Joe Biden’s main field office. She thanked a group of 15 volunteers for working to get out the vote, in rain and snow. Judi Lanza, a volunteer from New Hampshire, waited to take a photo with Jill. She started to cry as she stood next to the former second lady, who asked if she was OK. Minutes after Jill left, Lanza stood alone at the back of the office. “I’m a little worried,” she said, her voice shaking. “We can only get nervous as it gets closer....

    It sure looks as though the end is near for Joe Biden's latest presidential campaign. Forecasting the future in politics these days is a fool's game -- as Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan noted on Saturday, journalists are "bad at predictions." So here is a caveat: It is still early in the primary process, there is no clear front-runner, and anything could happen. Still, Biden gave off the distinct odor of flop sweat over the weekend. At Friday's Democratic presidential debate, he conceded he is unlikely to win this week's New Hampshire primary. That, in turn, led some of...
