Biden encourages Romney to consider Senate run in Utah

According to Politico, during a closed-door appearance with Romney on Friday evening, Biden, who went head to head with Romney in the 2012 presidential election encouraged his former rival to consider a Senate bid.

Biden was speaking at Romney's ideas summit, an annual gathering of donors and business leaders in Utah.

The Washington rumor mill is suggesting that Romney may throw his hat back in the Senate race if Utah Senator Orrin Hatch decides not to run for reelection. The event featured a number of big-name political operatives, including Joe Biden, who reportedly criticized Hillary Clinton during his own speech. The comment was quick and off-hand, but the crowd of Romney loyalists appreciated it and applauded.

Hatch has said he hasn't made a decision, but might step aside if Romney gets in.

Former Vice President Joe Biden reportedly said he knew a month before the 2016 presidential election that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would lose the race, The New York Post reported Saturday.

Since then, Romney has been campaigning for Republican candidates.

Biden also discussed a need for bipartisanship in Congress, lamenting how Republicans and Democrats don't sit together anymore in the Capitol dining room, and spoke of his efforts to improve cancer research, a cause he has focused on since his son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died in 2015 of brain cancer.
