According to Politico, during a closed-door appearance with Romney on Friday evening, Biden, who went head to head with Romney in the 2012 presidential election encouraged his former rival to consider a Senate bid.

Romney did not give any indication he was considering a run, should Hatch, 83, decide not to run again next year, said one person in attendance, Maryland videographer Dean Dykema.
Following Donald Trump's election victory last November, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was briefly considered by Trump's team for the position of secretary of state. Biden is encouraging former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to run for a senate seat in Utah now held by Orrin Hatch if the senator decides to retire next year. Earlier in the day Biden swore in the newly elected and returning members on the Senate floor.
As to Biden's political aspirations, his shots at Hillary and creation of a political action committee suggest he may be gearing up for a 2020 presidential run.
