Below is my list, in descending order, of the strongest members of the emerging 2020 Democratic field, along with some thoughts on their political fortunes. Spoiler alert: It’s not a pretty sight.
Richard Cordray, former director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, announced his candidacy for the governorship of Ohio on Tuesday, releasing a video featuring former President Barack Obama and Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.).
Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, on Wednesday requested information concerning the approval to move Leandra English from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
Sixteen hundred bureaucrats with the power to charge billions in fines, with a $600 million budget outside of the congressional appropriations process, and all because Elizabeth Warren compared mortgages to toasters.
A Navajo code talker and U.S Marine Corps veteran said on Tuesday that he was not offended by President Donald Trump’s “Pocahontas” remarks about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), but he was “puzzled” by them.
Democrats are continuing to recognize Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) deputy director Leandra English over Mick Mulvaney, who became the bureau’s interim director following Richard Cordray’s resignation.
