The United States presidential election 2020 is scheduled for the 3rd of November, 2020. It will be the fifty-ninth quadrennial United States presidential election while the series of primary caucuses and elections will take place during the next year’s first six months. Joe Biden is a Democratic presidential candidate. He is best known as the forty-seventh United States vice president who served at this position from 2009 until 2017.
The American politician is also known for representing the state of Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 until becoming the vice president of the United States in 2009. As a member of one of the two major political parties in the states, the Democratic Party, Joe Biden is a candidate at the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
Joe Biden was born on the 20th of November 1942. He was raised in Scranton, the state of Pennsylvania as well as in New Castle County, the state of Delaware. After high school, he enrolled at the University of Delaware before graduating from Syracuse University where he received his law degree. Before being elected to the United States Senate, he was a dedicated lawyer. He was also a member as well as former Foreign Relations Committee chairman and Senate Judiciary Committee’s chairman.
Biden’s 2020 Presidential Campaign
Joe Biden has reportedly said that he cannot agree with a federal opinion which was issued several months ago which could potentially curtail the ability of the majority of US states to offer iGaming activities. According to one report released by the CDC Gaming Reports news outlet, January saw the DOJ or United States Department of Justice revealed that the department would be modifying its stance on specific sections related to the Interstate Wire Act from 1961.
It was revealed that the United States Department of Justice plans on classifying all iGaming interstate transactions as fully illegal. This move from the United States Department of Justice or the nation’s most prominent law enforcement body allegedly came at President Donald Trump’s behest. If the DOJ alters its stance to the fullest degree, it would make it rather impossible for American poker and online casino sites to provide their services and products across state borders as well as to utilize liquidity from different jurisdictions.
United States Department of Justice November Ruling
The proposed change followed an important preceding ruling from the United States Department of Justice from November when the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel decided to reverse a rather friendly opinion on the iGaming industry from 2011. While the change was proposed, any law enforcement actions are still on hold as the US federal courts consider New Hampshire’s lawsuit which was brought against the DOJ’s rather controversial reinterpretation.
As revealed by the CDC Gaming Reports newspaper, Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign responded to this matter with a direct inquiry in which it was stated that the Democratic presidential candidate does not support the proposed change which aims at adding rather unnecessary restrictions to the already restricted gaming industry.
Moreover, the presidential campaign team working for the two-term US Vice-President also proclaimed that the seventy-seven-year-old believes that the US Department of Justice should remain loyal to the opinion from 2011 which allows all states to legalize and finally regulate iGaming industry within their borders. Lastly, the statement from the presidential candidate also proclaimed that Biden believes federal and state authorities should work together to ensure that iGaming and gambling activities are always corruption-free, fair and safe.
