Aides for Vice President Joe Biden met with staff from the Democratic National Committee this week, a sign that he may jump into the 2016 presidential race, according to the New Yorker.

The Biden aides were briefed on “arcane but crucial rules” that the vice president would need to understand should he run, the magazine reported. They went over details such as the primary calendar, filing deadlines and state-by-state processes for selecting delegates and super delegates.

Similar meetings were held with the other Democratic candidates: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee.
