Joe Biden spotted on Amtrak train after announcing presidential run

Joe Biden campaigns for Conor Lamb at a rally with union members at Carpenter Training Center in Collier on March 6, 2018. Biden announced he will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 and will kick off his campaign with a stop in Pittsburgh on Monday, April 29, 2019.

“Amtrak Joe” lived up to his old nickname Thursday when he took a modest train ride after becoming a 2020 candidate.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was photographed riding an Amtrak train to New York just hours after his campaign announced his candidacy for president via an online video.

BBC North America bureau chief Paul Danahar shared photos of Biden’s trip via Twitter.

The tweet had accumulated more than 1,700 likes by 5 p.m.

Biden often commutes via Amtrak from his home in Delaware. He attracted attention when he was photographed bumping into Sen. Kamala Harris on the train in February.

Biden will kick off his campaign for president in the Pittsburgh area Monday.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
