— -- Aides to Vice President Joe Biden met with DNC officials this week to discuss the critical rules and details involved in a presidential campaign, a Democratic official with knowledge of the meeting confirmed to ABC News today.
The meeting included a discussion on the filing deadlines to appear on primary ballots. Many of the deadlines are quickly approaching with the first cutoff occurring in Alabama on November 6.
The vice president publicly remains undecided about a 2016 campaign, but the meeting with DNC officials, which was first reported by The New Yorker, is the latest example of Biden's team readying information the vice president would need to know should he decide to pursue a presidential bid.
While it’s the latest clue into Biden’s ongoing 2016 deliberations, it is common for the DNC to provide these kinds of briefings to potential candidates.
“DNC staff offers all Democratic presidential candidates and potential candidates briefings on the ballot and delegate process,” said a DNC spokesperson, who declined to confirm or deny the meeting took place.
The vice president is expected to spend the weekend in Wilmington, Delaware.
