Now that former Vice President Joe Biden has locked up the Democratic presidential nomination, myriad advocacy and lobbying groups are vying for his ear as he fleshes out his foreign policy platform. And to get Biden’s ear, they need to go through his advisers.

Biden has already staked out drastically different positions from President Donald Trump with vows to reassess US-Saudi relations and reenter the Iran nuclear deal as well as his opposition to Israel annexing the West Bank. But as always, the devil is in the details.
