Former Vice President Joe Biden's access to the email list used by the Obama-Biden campaign in 2012 will come in handy during Biden's expected presidential campaign, according to a new report.
The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Biden — who is likely to enter the 2020 race Thursday — has already sent messages to the millions of addresses in the coveted list.
According to the report, the Biden-aligned American Possibilities PAC sent out an email blast this week to people on the list. A Biden spokesman then told The Daily Beast the PAC was given the green light to use the list.
"It is a lane to compete for," the 2012 campaign's press secretary Ben LaBolt told The Daily Beast. "Talking about expanding upon strengthening healthcare, making the economy work for families regardless of their income level, returning to a government of dignity and normalcy, restoring alliances abroad, that would be an attractive message for a lot of voters."
Former White House director of communications Jennifer Palmieri, meanwhile, said the list is just one piece of the equation.
Palmieri said the list is "certainly helpful. I don't know if it is a golden ticket."
Rumors about Biden running for president — which he has done unsuccessfully on two previous occasions — have swirled for months. He has also been accused of inappropriate conduct with women in public settings, for which he said he would be "much more mindful" about crossing into people's personal space.
