Biden building 2020 White House campaign ahead of expected bid: sources

Biden has told supporters and former staff that he will run, according to one source who has knowledge of discussions. Biden and his aides also have reached out to donors and potential bundlers - people who volunteer to raise money on behalf of the candidate - to assess support, according to another source. A third source with direct knowledge of Biden's plans offered a caveat, saying the former vice president was very close to running, but "it’s not 100 percent." “We’re leaning into that mom...

Uncle Joe Biden Meets Hollywood McCarthyism — and Folds

Opinion He is humble, gracious and respectful to a fault, and his kindness probably inflames his intolerant enemies all the more because it exposes their contrasting gracelessness, intolerance and mean-spiritedness. USA – -(Ammoland.com)- I don't know which is worse, the intolerant left's condemnation of former Vice President Joe Biden for saying Vice President Mike Pence is a “decent guy,” or Biden's shameless groveling and apology. Biden committed his unforgivable infraction during a spee...

Bernie Sanders Hires Fierce Biden, Beto, Harris Critic As Top Adviser

Bernie Sanders has brought an old ally back into the fold — one who has a long-running history of painting a number of Sanders’ top 2020 foes as being corporatist traitors. Sanders’ campaign announced Tuesday that he’s hired journalist David Sirota as a senior communications adviser and speechwriter. Sirota began his career in populist-liberal politics, working as Sanders’ press secretary back when he was a House member before working for a number of Democratic candidates and elected officials...

Beto O'Rourke raises $6 million in first 24 hours of campaign as Republicans crank up attacks

Word travels fast through the corn fields of Iowa - and the word among Democrats is that Beto O’Rourke could be the real thing. After launching his White House bid last week the Texan, light on policy but long on charm, has beguiled and dazzled voters at cafes, bars, and other small venues across the state, which is the first to vote in the 2020 primaries. "He's Obamaish," said Jenny Turner, 38, a Republican voter who stopped in at an O'Rourke event to see what all the fuss was about. "I...

Joe Biden Accidentally Announces He’s ‘Running’

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Did Joe Biden accidentally reveal his plans to run for the White House? Or was it just another slip of the tongue by the former vice president with a reputation for veering off script? In a keynote speech at a dinner for the Delaware Democratic Party, Biden boasted Saturday that he has “the most progressive record of anybody running.” The only problem is that Biden hasn’t announced whether he will launch a third run for the White House, despite repeatedly teasing the possib...

Joe Biden announces White House run - then says he didn't mean it

Joe Biden, one of the favourites to win the 2020 Democratic nomination, appeared to announce his presidential candidacy over the weekend – before retracting his remarks. Addressing 1,000 Democrats in Delaware, his home state, the 76-year-old former Vice President told his audience that his record was the most progressive "of anyone running for the United ...".

Gillibrand officially in 2020 race, could Biden soon follow?

And then there was one more. And maybe one more still to come? The large crop of Democrats who want to be president grew, technically, when New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand changed her status Sunday from exploring a 2020 White House run to becoming a full-fledged candidate. She’d spent more than a month visiting states […]

Joe Biden, tease of the 2020 campaign

Veteran Democrat Joe Biden campaigned for president in all but name Saturday, declining to announce his 2020 plans but dropping hints, including a significant gaffe that suggests he will soon be all in. As the number of White House hopefuls keeps growing -- at least 14 Democrats are officially in the race -- Biden is now the last major politician who is contemplating jumping in. Then, a startling slip by the notoriously gaffe-prone Biden -- perhaps an accident, perhaps a perfectly placed tease...

In Private, Aides Try To Quell Trump’s Biden Fears: Don’t Be ‘Overly Nervous’

In private, President Trump is secretly obsessed with the prospect of former Vice President Joe Biden running for president in 2020 and aides are attempting to curb some of his concerns, Politico reported. During a recent meeting between Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and White House Office of Political Affairs officials, the group talked about whether Trump should be nervous about Biden. People in the room told him he shouldn’t be “overly nervous” because Biden will likely be “pulled to th...

Abrams And Biden Meet Privately As Both Weigh 2020 Election Possibilities

ATLANTA (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden and Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams met privately Thursday in Washington, bringing together two starkly different faces of their party as they both weigh their political futures. Biden, 76, who served as President Barack Obama’s closest adviser, is on the cusp of deciding whether he’ll make his third run for the presidency. Abrams, 45, narrowly lost the Georgia governor’s race last November. She is being heavily recruited to run for the Senate in 2...

Trump Chaffs Beto’s ‘Hand Movement’: ‘Is He Crazy Or Is That Just The Way He Acts?’

President Trump’s main worry when it comes to the firebrand, young liberal who just tossed his hat in the 2020 ring? He gesticulates too much. “Well I think he’s got a lot of hand movement, I’ve never seen so much hand movement,” Trump told reporters in the White House on Thursday when asked about Beto O’Rourke’s candidacy. “I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’ I’ve never seen hand movement. I watched him a little while this morning doing, I assume it was some kind of a news...

Bernie Sanders Boosts Foreign Policy Cred For 2020 With Yemen Vote Win

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) scored a major victory on Thursday when the Senate passed his resolution to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war — one that could help his 2020 prospects. The Senate passed a resolution to defund America’s support for the Saudi-led efforts in the humanitarian disaster, a rare bipartisan rebuke to President Trump’s cozy relationship with Saudi Arabia. Sanders has led on this issue for years, working closely with Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) to ...

The Emerging Democratic Minority

The biases of the media are so pervasive that there is little recognition of the steady disintegration of the Democrats, though it is occurring every day. Rational and intelligent members of the center-Left write to me every week with new concerns about where the Left is going. The Democratic National Committee’s decision not to allow Fox News to put on one of their candidates’ debates confirms the weakness of the party and of its leaders. The process of atomizing society into smaller and smalle...

Biden Concerned About Fundraising Challenge Amid New Sense Of 2020 Urgency

NEW YORK (AP) — On the cusp of another White House run, Joe Biden faces a daunting challenge that could complicate his path to the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination: money.   Those close to the former vice president believe he would start off at a fundraising disadvantage compared to would-be rivals, whose campaigns have benefited from an early flood of small-dollar donations from the most liberal wing of the party.

Former Democrat Governor of Kentucky Steve Beshear explains his party's position

Joe Biden's 2020 message pic.twitter.com/TNNox2kvGz — Thomas! (@Thomasurlatoile) March 4, 2019 The last time you saw former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, he was perhaps delivering the Democrats' response to President Trump's 2017 state of the union address. But the chances are you forgot it, as he wasted it trying to appeal to Trump voters, because the only way mainstream Democrats can imagine electoral victory is by winning over white men suffering from "economic anxiety" and other euph...

Single-payer health care isn’t popular in California

One of the most persistent ideas of Democratic politics in California — the push for single-payer health insurance — is favored by only 41 percent of voters statewide, while 46 percent would not swap their private insurance for a government-backed system, according to a poll released Wednesday, Feb. 6 by Quinnipiac University. That result comes even as other polls, nationally, show growing approval of Obamacare and other forms of single-payer insurance. It also comes less than three months after...
