Vice President Joe Biden still hasn’t ruled out a 2016 run for the presidency, according to a report from The Huffington Post, MSNBC reports.

Sources reportedly close to the 72-year-old told the website that he’s expected to make a final decision by September.

“He has said he would announce his decision at the end of the summer,” Ted Kaufman, a longtime Biden aide who briefly filled his Senate seat when he was elected vice president, told Huffington Post. On the other hand, Biden’s spokesperson, Kendra A. Barkoff, appeared to throw cold water on the 2016 buzz. “The Biden family is going through a difficult time right now,” said Barkoff. “Any speculation about the views of the vice president or his family about his political future is premature and inappropriate.”

Biden has been mourning the death of his son Beau Biden, who succumbed to a long battle with brain cancer on May 30th. Beau Biden, who had political aspirations of his own, reportedly encouraged his father to seek the White House next year.
