WASHINGTON (AFP) - US Senator Joseph Biden has announced he will seek the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
"I am running for president," Biden told NBC television's "Meet the Press programme on Sunday.
He said he would file the necessary papers for a White House bid with federal authorities sometime during the month of January.
"I am filing for exploratory committee before the month is out," he said.
Biden, the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, one of the most powerful panels in Congress, first said several months ago he was mulling a White House bid.
He said Sunday that after months of consideration he has not been dissuaded by tough competition from expected White House hopefuls and fellow US senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
