With Joe Biden in the race, the Democrats face a choice

Today 06:04 GMT

For weeks, it was a peculiarity of the Democratic presidential nomination race for 2020 that one of the leading candidates in the pack hadn’t actually announced he was running.

In 2020, Bloomberg or someone like his fellow billionaire, the Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, may feel that they have an opening if centrist voters face a choice between Trump and a far-left Democrat. In 2016, the billionaire Mike Bloomberg would have run as an independent if the Democratic presidential nomination had gone to Sanders.

California congressional candidate Omar Navarro, who is running against Rep. Maxine Waters, said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Thursday that if there’s anyone who should be impeached, it’s the California Democrat.

Tom Del Beccaro: The Democratic presidential field is flush with contenders — for vice president

Today 05:09 GMT

If Klobuchar somehow emerges from the field (and would need a big showing in Iowa, which is possible given she is from Minnesota and her more moderate views), look for her to go outside the existing list of Democrat candidates in favor of someone from Washington.

As we consider that question, we would do well to remember that the choice of vice-presidential running mates historically had been made to balance a party’s ticket.

Jason Nichols: Congress should pursue impeachment, but not just to harass President Trump

Today 06:04 GMT

The House of Representatives should indeed begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump, but it should do so for the right reasons.

Were it not for smart decisions by scrappy Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski and former White House counsel Don McGahn to ignore Trump's demands, Trump would have a problem. Now that the special counsel's investigation has ended, the White House has hinted that it may invoke executive privilege to keep McGahn from testifying before the House Judiciary Committee.

Factory farms are polluting our water with hog manure. Democrats should take note

Today 06:05 GMT

Barb Kalbach, fourth-generation family farmer from Adair county, says the path to cleaner Iowa water starts with stopping the expansion of factory farms: “Plain and simple, we need a moratorium on factory farms. We also need tough rules paired with tough enforcement, and we need the big ag polluters that created this mess to pay to clean it up.”

Tough talk of a wall makes headlines, but it’s a less discussed issue that could play a deciding role for voters in swing states and early primary states: the influx of factory farms and the devastating impact they have on people’s water, air and way of life.

Florida bill calling for ex-felons to settle debts before voting advances after House vote

Today 05:10 GMT

The Florida House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a bill that would require former felons to pay all court fees and costs in addition to restitution before becoming eligible to vote.

While the Florida House version of the bill requires all court fees and restitution be paid, the Senate version calls for ex-felons to pay only restitution, the Miami Herald reported. “Giving imprisoned terrorists, sex offenders, and murderers the right to vote is an outrageous proposal that is deeply offensive to innocent victims across this country, some of whom lost their lives and are forever disenfranchised by the very killers that 2020 Democrats seek to empower."
