Thursday 23:40 GMT

GOP strategist Colin Reed said Wednesday he thinks “the gloves will come off right away” if former Vice President Joe Biden joins the crowded 2020 field of Democrats as expected. “I think Joe Biden has made a connection with voters,” Democratic strategist Michael Meehan, the president and CEO of Squared Communications, responded on “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” Wednesday.

When asked if he thought Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would go after Biden right away, Reed said, “I don’t think he goes after him right away because he’s the frontrunner, and in politics, you always punch up, not down.”

Guerrero belts another home run for Bisons

Thursday 20:00 GMT

Batting third as the designated hitter, Guerrero went 2-for-5, including the go-ahead home run in the seventh, as the Bisons beat the Syracuse Mets 5-4.

As it landed over the right-field fence for a solo home run, Guerrero appeared one step closer to his major-league debut. Wednesday marked the first time the Toronto Blue Jays’ top prospect played three games in as many days for triple-A Buffalo since suffering an oblique injury in spring training last month.
