Running for president 2020
Cory Booker said it would be “irresponsible” not to consider running for president in 2020. He is a Democratic senator from New Jersey. He also happens to be single. The US hasn’t had a president without a spouse in over 100 years. Even when we did have a bachelor president, he had a stand-in first lady. Experts agree that this could become a talking point if Booker were to run for office.

John Kerry likely isn’t top of mind when it comes to potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidates — even within his home state of Massachusetts. Compared to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Gov. Deval Patrick — who’ve both laid some groundwork for possible 2020 bids — or even Rep. Seth Moulton, Kerry is hardly the first name mentioned when it comes to Bay State politicians with White House sights, even if he did come awfully close to it in 2004. The former Massachusetts senator and U.S. secretary of state didn’t even make CNN’s “definitive ranking” of 10 potential 2020 Democrats last month. Nor did he make the Washington Post‘s ranking of the top 15 candidates to take on President Donald Trump earlier this summer. Kerry wasn’t even among the honorable mentions whom the Post said were “worth watching.” Sad! All of that is to say that it may have caught even the most logged-on Twitter users by … [Read more...] about Is John Kerry really considering a run for president in 2020?

By Casey Tolan | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: August 9, 2018 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: August 9, 2018 at 7:24 am East Bay Rep. Eric Swalwell spent two days last week in a Winnebago nicknamed “Sioux City Sue,” road-tripping across rural Iowa to campaign for a fellow Democrat. He’ll be back again this weekend, speaking on the soapbox at the State Fair and stopping by a corn boil in Baldwin, population 109. That latest foray will mark Swalwell’s 10th trip to Iowa since President Trump took office — a travel schedule that’s raising eyebrows about the 37-year-old congressman’s presidential ambitions. Politicos in the Hawkeye State, which holds the first presidential nominating caucuses in the nation, say Swalwell has spent more time there over the last year and a half than nearly any other potential Democratic presidential candidate. His frequent trips come as he’s skyrocketed from obscurity … [Read more...] about Eric Swalwell has visited Iowa 10 times in last year and a half. Is he running for president?
