Vice President Joseph R. Biden said in Iowa Thursday that he’ll make a decision whether to run for president in 2016 by the end of this summer.

“That’s a family personal decision that I’m going to make sometime at the end of the summer,” Mr. Biden told reporters on a trip to promote President Obama’s economic policies. “In the meantime, though, this is about convincing the public and in turn some of our Republican friends that what we’re proposing in the budget is a continuation of the stuff that works.”

Mr. Biden, who has not formed an exploratory committee for 2016, said he wasn’t in the state for campaigning.

“I’ve been here a lot, I have a lot of friends. I’m going to see some of my friends are still in the Legislature and they’re here today,” he said. “But no, I’m not doing any organization if that’s what you mean. … This is really about connecting opportunity with specific job opportunities and training.”
