Former Vice President Joe Biden warned supporters on Tuesday that he would be the target of many future political attacks as he leads the pack of Democrat 2020 presidential candidates.
“This is a marathon. It is true we’re ahead. It is true we feel good about where we’re going,” he said, according to pooled news coverage of the event. “That means two things: One, there’s a target on my back. And Two, things are gonna change. It always does.”
Biden added that he meant the word “target” “figuratively,” not literally.
Biden commented on his position in the race during his third big dollar New York City fundraiser in less than 24 hours. The former vice president is scooping up cash ahead of a key 2020 deadline, as he teased on Monday night a final number of nearly $20 million raised for his campaign.
Whether or not there is actually "a target" on his back, the Democrat front runner words don't seem to be those of a man who is confident in victory.
So what's Sleepy Joe really worried about?
