Former Vice President Joe Biden should "just say yes" to a 2020 presidential run, a woman in the audience at a University of Delaware event shouted Tuesday.

"Oh my god, just say yes," she said after Biden said he was "very close" to making a decision.

"The first hurdle for me was deciding whether or not I am comfortable taking the family through what would be a very, very difficult campaign. No matter who runs, it's a very difficult campaign," he said during a discussion with presidential historian Jon Meacham.

Biden is concerned about attacks President Donald Trump will direct at his family but has told people closest to him the likelihood of him running is high – from 70, to 80 and even more recently 90 percent.

"I'm certain about where the family is," he added. "But the second piece is that I don't want this to be a fool's errand and I want to make sure that if we do this – and we're very close to getting to a decision – that I am fully prepared to do it."

Biden is a frontrunner among Democratic presidential contenders, but the field is already packed with Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas.
