The unofficial Biden campaign effort continues to grow in momentum this week after it was revealed that a key Obama staffer has been added to the effort to pull the vice president into the race.

Steve Schale confirmed to NBC News that he has officially joined the Draft Biden committee in what could be a key signal that the decision will be in favor of a White House bid.

Schale served both in 2008 and 2012 as Obama’s top Florida strategist helping push the battleground state into the blue column for Democrats.

According to a poll released on Wednesday by CNN, 53% of Democrats say Biden should enter the race for the Democrat nomination.
