PHILADELPHIA — Joe Biden is getting in.

Two sources familiar with Biden’s preliminary plans said the former vice president will announce his candidacy for president Wednesday in Charlottesville, Va., the site of a violent clash in August 2017 between white supremacists and counterprotesters that claimed one life.

Biden would then fly to Pittsburgh for a campaign rally in the afternoon and then on to Philadelphia, where he will hold a rally at the Museum of Art, though the sources stressed that the plans have been shifting in recent days, and could change again.
