2020 Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders recently admitted the impeachment trial is going to negatively affect his presidential campaign. While talking to reporters in Washington on Thursday, the Vermont senator said the trial may take several weeks, which he would rather spend campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire to win the Democrat Party nomination.
Two presidential candidates who did not qualify for this week’s Democrat debate chose to hold their own campaign events instead.
Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard drew a crowd while campaigning in New Hampshire for a non-traditional campaign appearance. The congresswoman joined a group of surfers Wednesday, hitting the frigid Atlantic Ocean to help ring in the new year. Gabbard is noted for her surfing activities in her native Hawaii.
