Washington - US Vice President Joe Biden will not run for president, he says, putting to end months of speculation and uncertainty in the Democratic field.
Making the announcement at the White House, he said the "window has closed" for him to mount a successful campaign for president.
Biden said he and his family made the decision that he would not run for president as they continue to mourn the death of his son, Beau, earlier this year.
"As my family and I have worked through the grieving process, I've said all along that it may very well be that that process closes the window on mounting a realistic campaign for president, and I've concluded it has closed."
