VP Biden Meets with George Tsunis

WASHINGTON, DC – So big was the story that Vice President Joe Biden, who is mulling over the idea of running for president in 2016, met privately with U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a darling of the progressives who declined to run so as not to compete directly with perennial Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

But with Clinton’s looming problems on the heels of an FBI probe into whether use of an unsecure server while she was secretary of state breached national security, leading to discussion about whether the nominee might be someone else, this suddenly opens the door for Biden, and reopens it for Warren.

That big story, then, overshadowed a related story: Biden met with Greek-American George Tsunis, the New York Times reported, who raised more than $750,000 for the Obama-Biden ticket in 2012. “I think he is doing the prudent thing, which is to look at it and lay down some groundwork should he run,” said Tsunis told the Times, indicating that if Biden runs, he knows Tsunis will help him.
