Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Martin O’Malley have the opportunity to face off at this year’s first presidential debate on Oct. 19 in Las Vegas.
Here are three things to know: 1.
Biden wants a debate about a specific topic: Biden has been the subject of a lot of criticism from Democrats for his past comments on abortion, which some believe could be used as a wedge against him.
In recent days, Biden has said he would support a debate on gun control, immigration and climate change, but he’s yet to say if he will be willing to address gun violence in the United States.
But on Wednesday, Biden made clear he doesn’t plan to take a position on gun legislation: “We will continue to look for common ground,” he said during an interview with Fox News.
“The issue of gun control is a great one.
I want to see if we can come together as a country and find a common ground that works for everybody.”
He also said that he believes the country needs a national conversation about gun control.
Biden has also said he’s interested in making changes to gun laws to prevent violence, but hasn’t yet indicated how.
“I don’t think there’s a single issue on which we can all agree on,” Biden said during a Fox News interview on Oct 14.
O’MALLEY: Biden will be a more presidential candidate than Clinton: O’Brien says the vice president will be more presidential in tone than Clinton.
OBrien said the vice presidential debate will likely feature some substantive policy discussion, and he said Biden will likely “talk about some of the issues that will be relevant.”
Biden will also take a stronger stance against the Islamic State and its supporters, and will not “just make up some things,” O’Connor said.
OMalley also said Biden won’t be able to “pander to the base” and will focus on issues such as the economy, immigration, gun control and the environment.
Biden is running for president for the first time in his life: Biden’s decision to run for president was not a surprise to his friends and family, O’Donnell said.
“He’s running for his life.
He’s not going to be a candidate,” OBrien added.
“If he was going to do that, he wouldn’t be doing it for another three or four years.”
Biden, who turns 70 in October, has been in public life for more than three decades, O.N.T.O. He has served in Congress since 1991 and is considered one of the most experienced and successful Democrats in American history.
He also served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont, for the past three years.
Biden’s family has long been close to him and his family, and many of his former staffers have served on his transition team.
He is currently campaigning in New Hampshire.
