According to the Wall Street Journal, Vice President Joe Biden's sons, Beau and Hunter, encouraged their father to run for the oval office in 2016.
Last month, Biden's 46-year-old son, Beau, died of brain cancer, but was always a firm believer in his father and what he could do for this country.
Dick Harpootlian, the former chairman of South Carolina's Democratic Party was quoted as saying, "It's no secret that Beau wanted him to run." Harpootlian has been an avid supported of Biden. "If he does what Beau wanted him to do, he'll run."
According to James Smith, a Democratic state lawmaker in South Carolina, Hunter "feels strongly about his dad running and serving."
The VP is expected to make his decision by August. He previously ran for the presidency in 1988 and 2008.
