Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.) on Monday said he has been told by an unidentified source that Vice President Biden is running for president. 

"I have a very good source close to Joe that tells me VP Biden will run for Prez," Boyle, a freshman lawmaker, tweeted shortly before noon on Monday. 
Shortly before that tweet, Boyle sent another reminding followers that Bill Clinton launched his 1992 White House bid in October of that year.
 
Anticipation for Biden's decision has reached a fever pitch, with Democrats anxious to know his plans in the wake of the first Democratic debate last week.
 
Reports indicate an announcement from Biden could come soon. The vice president has been wrestling with the decision for months.
 
Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), a top supporter of Biden, said earlier Monday that Biden is expected to decide about entering the race soon.
