Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is running for president again. He announced this morning that he is launching a second campaign for the White House four years after his surprisingly strong bid for the Democratic Party’s 2016 nomination.
Bernie Sanders is on a battleground tour to help Democratic candidates in the November elections and he may make a big difference in close races.
Sanders has a full October travel schedule, and this is his longest stretch of campaigning since he stopped his 2016 presidential campaign. He is going to many states, including Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada, where there are very important early primaries or caucuses on the 2020 presidential election calendar.
Michael Avenatti was in New Hampshire yesterday, raising money for Democrats while he explores a presidential run.
Avenatti is emphatic about one thing. He is not on “a listening tour,” he told The Washington Post by phone, because that’s something politicians say. He is definitely not a politician.
On Thursday he announced that he has a new 2020-themed website called TheFight2020.com. The site is currently empty but has the headline “All the President’s Con Men.” It also shows a black-and-white photo of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani wiping his face with a cloth.
A new poll has found that nearly a third of registered Democratic voters favor former Vice President Joe Biden to be their nominee in the 2020 race for president. This puts Biden squarely in the “front runner” spot with just over four months to go until this year’s midterm elections.
Obama reportedly held the one-on-one sessions in his D.C. office over the past several months, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D).
