Everyone is frozen in place, eh?
Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will be the keynote speaker at Senator Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry fund-raiser next month, a signature event on the Iowa political calendar that often showcases aspiring presidents as featured speakers.
Mr. Biden, who has not ruled out a third presidential bid in 2016, will “bat cleanup” at Mr. Harkin’s high-profile Democratic picnic after a speech from Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio, according to a person familiar with the plans. Mr. Biden’s attendance is a sign, Democratic officials here say, that he wants Iowa caucus-goers to know he is very much considering another White House race. A press representative for Mr. Biden did not reply to requests for comment.Share on Facebook
