Thursday is when we should expect former Vice President Joe Biden to formally announce his 2020 campaign for president. After fawning for Biden’s many hints for over a month, ABC and CBS were excited during their Tuesday evening broadcasts. Not so much for NBC, who brought up some of Biden’s lowest moments for liberals.
ABC’s World News Tonight was all in for hyping Biden as sensationalist anchor David Muir announced “the major new headline tonight in the race for 2020. Former Vice President Joe Biden will announce he's running this week in a video Thursday morning.”
Terry Moran, ABC’s senior national correspondent, seemed enthused to share the Biden campaign’s plans for the rollout:
He's clearly raring to go. And that Thursday morning announcement declaring he is running, he’ll be the 20th candidate in this crowded Democratic field so far. He’ll do some media, and then his first campaign event Monday at a Teamsters hall in Pittsburgh emphasizing that lunch pale, labor union politics that he’s always championed. He's -- the third time that he has been running for president, the first, way back in 1987.
