In a moving 3 minute video, Joe Biden made his impassioned pitch to take back the White House.

 

“We are in the battle for the soul of this nation,” Mr. Biden said. “I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time. But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation, who we are, and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”

The former V.P. enters a crowded race but is immediately the front-runner.
