Jill Biden Is 'On Board' If Husband Joe Decides to Run for President

Vice President Joe Biden's wife Jill will support his white house bid, should he decide to run


Vice President Joe Biden remains unsure about joining the 2016 presidential race, but should he decide to make a bid for the White House, wife Dr. Jill Biden is on board.

Jill is “100 percent” supportive of her husband running for president, despite speculation that her unwillingness may be the reason for Joe’s hesitation to formally throw his hat in the ring, sources told NBC’s Chuck Todd.

A spokesman for the vice president’s wife tells PEOPLE, “Of course Dr. Biden would be on board if her husband decides to run for president but they haven’t made that decision yet.”

Joe publicly discussed his potential bid for the Democratic nomination for the first time in early September at the Ahavath Achim Synagogue in Atlanta.

“The honest to God answer is I just don’t know,” he said.

The vice president is still grieving the loss of son Beau to brain cancer earlier this year, which he has said is lending to his reluctance.

“If I were to announce to run, I have to be able to commit to all of you that I would be able to give it my whole heart and my whole soul, and right now, both are pretty well banged up,” he told members of the Democratic National Committee during a conference call in late August.

If Joe decides to enter the race, he will face off against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
