Biden, 77, wouldn't commit to serving a second term when asked late last year if he would only serve one term in office if elected.

“No I won’t commit one way or another,” Biden said in December. “Let’s win this election then see where we are. Let’s see what happens.”

Biden would be 82 at the start of a possible second term if he were to capture the White House in November.
