Reports suggesting that Vice President Joe Biden could challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination have not gone unnoticed by at least one party leader.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), said on "Meet the Press" on Sunday that there "will always be room for the sitting vice president if he chose to run for president."

The congresswoman said the DNC has kept the lines of communication open with Biden's aides and staffers.

“Vice President Biden has never ruled out whether he would eventually run for President, so like any of the other candidates when they were thinking or in any stage of the process, we have kept his team informed,” Wasserman Schultz said.

She cautioned that people should take a step back from the speculation and remember that Biden, 72, recently lost his son, Beau.

“Vice President Biden has just been through the most heart-wrenching tragedy that a parent could ever experience in the loss of his son Beau.” Wasserman Schultz continued, “And it was deeply tragic to watch that family go through what they have.”
