The Washington Examiner is reporting that Joe Biden, who has yet to formally launch his 2020 campaign, might be getting a notable endorsement at some point:
NEW: McCain family expected to back Biden in his White House bid.

"…at some point during the White House race, McCain's widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34 … will offer their public support … one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good" https://t.co/JClO0jYPYF

Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on “The View,” will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.
So what would that mean for the Biden campaign?
hmmmm. Curious if this actually helps him https://t.co/BzuEEmEDXT

Honestly can’t tell if getting the support of the McCain family helps or hurts Biden. https://t.co/7c8zr1C4sM

Perhaps time will tell.
This report, if true, is not surprising. @MeghanMcCain has often talked on @TheView about her relationship w/ Joe Biden, noting it would be difficult for her to be very critical of the former VP because of their close personal relationship https://t.co/kAN9nsRDxD

According to Cindy McCain, she’s going to stay out of things in 2020:
Joe Biden is a wonderful man and dear friend of the McCain Family. However, I have no intention of getting involved in presidential politics.
