"I don't know. I don't know and I still don't know," the former Delaware senator said.


Biden said he would make his decision after the first of the year.

“I wouldn’t announce it if I were going to run that early. It would be too early to get started,” Biden said.

Biden recently wrapped up an eight-state, 12-stop campaign blitz for Democrats ahead of Election Day, a busy schedule that has resurfaced questions about his intentions for 2020.

“The reason I was out there is I was requested to be out there,” Biden said. "This is the single most important off-year election in my lifetime.”

Biden also said he expects Democrats to win the majority in the House. 

"I'll be dumbfounded if we lose the House. Dumbfounded. And I'd be surprised if we don't win by a comfortable margin. ... I still think there's a shot of us winning the Senate."
