Two presidential candidates who did not qualify for this week’s Democrat debate chose to hold their own campaign events instead.
In-fighting among Democrat White House hopefuls continued to heighten just ahead of the seventh primary debate in Iowa. One America’s Jeff Dwyer has this report.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has yet to release the text of the motion to dismiss the impeachment charges against President Trump. The Kentucky lawmaker has reportedly been surveying members of his conference to gauge support for a dismissal, but apparently GOP senators are generally not interested in such a move as some attempt to remain impartial ahead of the upcoming 2020 primaries.
New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker has dropped out of the 2020 race for president. Booker announced his decision Monday in an email to supporters. The Democrat lawmaker said his campaign did not have enough money to continue.
Democrat presidential candidate Tom Steyer is claiming he made the cut for Tuesday’s debates because of his messaging and not the millions of dollars he’s spent on ads. During an interview Sunday, the billionaire businessman defended his qualifications by calling himself a “grassroots person” who frequently visits states across the country.
On Thursday night, President Trump joined his supporters in the Buckeye State for his first reelection campaign rally of 2020. At the Huntington Center in Toledo, the president touched on a variety of topics, including recent tensions with Iran.
President Trump has confirmed the U.S. and China will sign the Phase One trade deal in Washington next week. During an event at the White House on Thursday, the president called Phase One a “phenomenal deal.”
GOP congresswoman Elise Stefanik has continued to make waves in Congress. That’s according to a Wednesday press release from the New York representative’s campaign, which detailed her performance heading in to 2020.
Democrat 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg is set to attend a voting rights event in Georgia hosted by activist Stacey Abrams. According to local media Wednesday, Bloomberg will arrive in Atlanta on Friday to appear alongside Abrams to call for more inclusive voting. The event is reportedly not an endorsement by either of the two.
