US Vice President Joe Biden has announced he will not run for the Democratic nomination in the 2016 White House race.
Making a surprise announcement in the White House Rose Garden, Biden said there was not enough time left for him to mount a successful campaign.
He said it would be a mistake for Democrats to turn their backs on President Barack Obama’s legacy.
Though he will not be a candidate, he said he “will not be silent”.
