This isn't too surprising.

Election time is right around the corner which means we're down to the wire for candidates wanting to throw their hat in the ring.

In terms of the Democratic nomination, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are leading the field of hopefuls in the polls, but there's been one other possible contender everyone's been waiting on — Vice President Joe Biden.

Recently there's been a lot of talk about whether or not Biden will run, but the VP has made it official by saying he will NOT be campaigning for the presidential nomination.

In a statement at the White House Rose Garden with President Barack Obama in attendance, the 72-year-old politician said:

"As my family and I have worked through the grieving process, I've said all along what I've said time and again to others, that it may very well be that that process, by the time we get through it, closes the window on mounting a realistic campaign for President. I've concluded it has closed."

This will come as a bit of a disappointment to several Democrats who were holding out hope for the Veep to run, but honestly it shouldn't come as a surprise.

There were several outlets that believed Joe would announce his candidacy before the first Democratic debate last week, but failing to do so seemed to foreshadow his decision.

Are you disappointed Biden isn't running? Or are you #TeamHillary or #TeamSanders for the Democratic nomination?
