Politico reported Monday morning that anonymous confidants of Biden's say he's likely to come to a decision by next weekend, or shortly thereafter.

CBS News also reported Friday that Biden could finally make up his mind within seven to 10 days, citing three anonymous sources familiar with his deliberations.

It remains unclear whether Biden is leaning toward or away from jumping into the Democratic primary race.

Should he decide to launch a presidential bid, CNN reported last week that Biden is unlikely to participate in the first Democratic primary debate on Oct. 13.
