Former Vice President Joe Biden is announced his candidacy for President on Thursday, adding to an already-crowded field of candidates. We’ll begin today’s show by getting Democratic party stalwart ED RENDELL’s opinion on Biden’s bid for the presidency. Then we’ll talk about the bigger picture in the Democratic primary race – who are the candidates, what issues are they focusing on, how are their messages being received, and who actually may have a chance to clench the nomination and beat President Trump? Our guests are HOLLY OTTERBEIN of POLITICO and AMANDA TERKEL, D.C. bureau chief for HuffPost.
