Biden, a 76-year-old former U.S. senator from Delaware who served two four-year terms as vice president to President Barack Obama, has publicly said he is weighing a run as the party's elder statesman and is in the final stages of making a decision. The IAFF has been an ardent political ally of Biden's for years, and an endorsement by the union would likely give him an early boost should he enter the race for his labor-friendly party's nomination.
