    WASHINGTON — What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. And proposing a sweeping Green New Deal that calls for an “economic transformation” to combat climate change. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest...

    I’m honestly surprised. This guy’s been dithering about whether to run through not one but two election cycles now. Clearly he’s not that eager to do it. Just as clearly he’s going to face a barrage from the left if he gets in aimed at knocking him back from the fragile frontrunner status he momentarily enjoys. It’d be the easiest thing for him to conclude that he’s simply too old and his time is past. Then he’d be remembered by his party warmly, as a two-term VP to the first black president who had the good sense to stand...

    Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Monday refuted President Donald Trump's questioning whether climate change is real because it was snowing heavily when she announced this weekend she's running for president. "Okay. That is so wrong," Klobuchar said on ABC's "Good Morning America" in her first network TV interview since declaring, pushing back on the president's tweet that it was "bad timing" that she talked "proudly" of fighting global warming "while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures." "I'm sorry if it still snows in the world but the point is that we know climate change...

    President Trump poked fun at Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Sunday for vowing to tackle climate change as she kicked off her 2020 presidential campaign in a snowy, freezing Minneapolis park. "Well, it happened again," Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday evening. "Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!" Klobuchar previously endorsed the so-called "Green New Deal," a massive Democratic legislative program that promises to combat climate change, in...

    Anyone tracking the positions of the leading 2020 Democratic presidential candidates would think there weren’t any moderates left in the party. Sen. Kamala Harris of California reiterated at a nationally televised town hall last month that her cosponsorship of Bernie Sanders’s Medicare-for-all legislation would mean the abolition of private insurance. Five leading candidates endorsed a Green New Deal that imposes a top-down revolution of American society to mitigate the impact of climate change. But when you look at the polls breaking down the actual Democratic electorate, you’ll find limited support for such socialist-minded schemes. Broaden out to the overall electorate,...

    President Trump’s campaign wasted no time going after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Saturday shortly before she was expected to formally announce her candidacy for the White House in 2020. “Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. “The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America's middle-class. Only under President...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., formally announced her candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Saturday, saying she wants to fight for "an America that works for everyone." "This is the fight of our lives. The fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone," she told supporters in Lawrence, Mass.

Kirsten Gillibrand doesn’t know how to eat fried chicken (seriously) annnd we’re officially DEAD" Have we mentioned how much fun the Democratic Primary is going to be? Dude. If we were Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, or even Elizabeth Warren, we would SO give Kirsten Gillibrand a hard time about not knowing how to eat fried chicken. Seriously. How can you not know how to do this if you live in America? Wait, don’t answer that. "Eventually the food is served & Gillibrand starts to eat her fried chicken with a fork. She...

    Yesterday’s “big announcement” from Massachusettes Senator Elizabeth Warren was exactly what everyone has known for ages. She’s officially running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. Of course, it’s looked and sounded as if she was running for president since she first won her seat in the Senate. So what was her overarching message defining why she should be elected? America is a terrible place because of all the rich people and she’s going to teach them a thing or two. (CNN) Sen. Elizabeth Warren officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign Saturday at a rally in Lawrence, Massachusetts, using...

    Democratic primary voters are looking for a wide range of disparate things in their party’s 2020 standard-bearer. For some, the top priority is to nominate a progressive who boasts a long record of supporting single-payer health care, standing up to the financial industry, and championing organized labor. And many just want a nominee who will definitely beat Trump. Unfortunately, there is no Democratic 2020 hopeful who checks all of these boxes at once. But there could be. What if there were a Democratic politician who had been championing single-payer health care for two decades, and calling for a ban on...

    LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren is expected to formally launch her presidential bid in this working-class city on Saturday with a populist call to fight economic inequality, a message she hopes will distinguish her in a crowded Democratic field and help her move past the controversy surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage. The Massachusetts Democrat will announce her 2020 plans at a mill site where largely immigrant factory workers went on strike nearly 100 years ago, providing the longtime consumer advocate a fitting forum to advance her political platform. In a video announcing Saturday's event, Warren...

    Just one day after she formally announced her presidential bid in Oakland to big crowds and applause, Kamala Harris is already on her backfoot, flip-flopping on a major campaign stance right out the gate. Monday, she said this, causing lots of murmuring among Democrats who distanced themselves from her sweeping pie-in-the-sky proposals. According to CNN: Sen. Kamala Harris of California renewed the party's debate over single-payer health care in a CNN town hall Monday, saying she's willing to end private insurance, which more than 170 million Americans use. "We need to have Medicare-for-all," said Harris. "Who of us has not had that situation, where...

    As a member of the Second-Greatest Generation, I vaguely remember H. Ross Perot. He was the funny little fella with the big ears who ran for president as an independent back in 1992. He was a Texas billionaire who made his money in computers, long before everybody had computers in their pockets, and he had never held public office. He seemed to be running for president because... well, because he damn well felt like it, that's why. As I recall, his solution to all of America's problems at the time was simple: "Fix it. Just fix it. What are...

    Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, reportedly has yet to rule out running for the Oval Office again in 2020. CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny said Sunday on CNN's "Inside Politics" that Clinton told people "as recently as this week" that she isn't "closing the doors to the idea of running in 2020." "I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, she was telling people that look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying 'look, I'm not closing the doors to this,'" Zeleny said....

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Democrat Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, says he’s forming an exploratory committee for a 2020 presidential bid. “The reality is there’s no going back, and there’s no such thing as ‘again’ in the real world. We can’t look for greatness in the past,” Buttigieg says in a video that includes before-and-after footage of South Bend, a Rust Belt city once described as “dying.” “Right now our country needs a fresh start,” he says.
