Jill Biden: Joe Is 'Not Going Away, PAC to Help Midterm Races

CBS News

Former Vice President Joe Biden is "not going away," and the news that he is creating a Political Action Committee shows he plans to remain active in politics, his wife, Jill, said Thursday.

"He loves politics, he loves what he's doing, and he said he would stay involved," Biden said during a "CBS This Morning" interview. "He set up this PAC because he's going to be involved in the midterm elections."

Biden plans to unveil the "American Possibilities" PAC on Thursday, reports The New York Times, giving him a platform that will allow him to support candidates in two governor's races this coming November and others running in the 2018 midterm elections.

The New York Times also noted that the PAC also will send a message to other Democrats looking at the White House in 2020 that the 74-year-old former vice president is not planning to quietly retire.

Greg Schultz, one of his former vice-presidential office aides who worked with former President Barack Obama's campaigns, will help led the new PAC.

Biden himself has dismissed the idea of seeking the White House, saying last month during a state event dinner in New Hampshire that he knew his appearance would cause speculation, but he's "not running."

His wife, a Save the Children board chairperson, was on the CBS program to discuss International Children's Day and the organization's End of Childhood Index, which evaluates countries by events that disrupt childhood, including lack of education, violence, food insecruity, and teen pregnancy. She appeared with Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of the nonprofit organization.
