A key operative behind the effort to convince Vice President Joe Biden to run for president is asking friends and allies to submit résumés if they're interested in jobs on a potential Biden campaign.
The solicitation—obtained by National Journal—reflects the growing levels of excitement and anticipation inside the Draft Biden movement, despite great uncertainty over whether Biden will actually launch a White House bid.
Scott Dworkin, a Washington-based consultant whose firm, Bulldog Finance Group, leads the fundraising operation for the Draft Biden 2016 super PAC, wrote the email, which went out Wednesday afternoon. Dworkin instructed anyone interested in working for "the potential Biden campaign" to submit his or her résumé to a colleague of his at Bulldog Finance. Dworkin's message included the disclaimer: "(No this does not mean he's running)."
Here is the email:
