BEAU BIDEN-GOVERNOR RACE
Beau Biden plans run for Delaware governor, says he won't seek re-election as attorney general

Vice President Joe Biden's eldest son, Beau Biden, says he won't seek re-election as Delaware attorney general this year but plans to run for governor in 2016.
The 45-year-old Biden had said previously that he would seek a third term as attorney general.
Biden, who suffered a mild stroke in 2010, was hospitalized last August after becoming weak and disoriented during an Indiana vacation.
He was later flown to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas, where doctors removed what was described as a small lesion.
Biden has refused to discuss his latest health scare, but the Texas center's head of neuro-oncology gave him "a clean bill of health" in November.
