There are far too many Democrats running for president in 2020.
This will only serve to further hurt their chances of defeating President Trump.
Now, the Democrat National Committee is set to cut the field in half in the very near future.
From Daily Wire:
It seems that while the DNC was willing to tolerate a field of at least two dozen candidates for a short time, they won’t be coddling competitors like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who can barely clear 1% in national polls, forever, even if Gillibrand and others insist their Oval Office dreams aren’t dead.
“To appear in the party’s third debate, which will be broadcast by ABC News and Univision, candidates will have to earn 2 percent support in four party-sanctioned polls between late June and August. In addition, they will have to show they’ve attracted at least 130,000 donors since the start of the campaign, including at least 400 from 20 different states,” WaPo reports.
But while culling the herd early is probably a good move for the DNC, as it lets party brass consolidate their support and concentrate on handling fewer candidates while it maps out its 2020 election strategy, there’s no escaping that this selective reduction is coming more than a year out from the presidential election, and just under six months out of the first presidential primary. Candidates will have barely unpacked from the Iowa State Fair before they’re required to hit the bricks to double their supporter numbers.
Democrat Senator Kamala Harris (CA) is quite the cut-up.
For some reason, former Speaker Newt Gingrich thinks she has the best chance of earning her party’s nomination for president come 2020.
While on CNN, Harris said every person in America – whether documented or not – should be given healtthcare.
But wait, there’s more…
From Free Beacon:
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) on Sunday voiced her support for illegal immigrants having access to health care and public education.
Jake Tapper asked, “The bill also says, ‘Every individual who is a resident of the United States is entitled to benefits for health care services under this act.’ Not every individual is a citizen, but every individual is a resident, so you support giving universal health care and Medicare for All to people who are in this country illegally?”
Harris responded, “Let me just be very clear about this. I am opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education, or public health. Period.”
