Ten candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination took the stage in Detroit last night in the first of a two-night CNN-hosted...
“While a lot will change between today and the first contests next year...there is no doubt that, in 2020, Democrats are better positioned to nominate an unapologetic champion for progressive values for President than we’ve been in decades.”
“My fundamental concern is that the relationship between the Defense Department and giant defense contractors has become far too cozy."
"It’s time to build an America that recognizes the role that women of color play in their families and in the economy."
"This kind of revolving door influence-peddling smacks of corruption."
Candidate after candidate argued that the problems of the New Gilded Age will only get worse unless the nation restrains corruption and gives Americans a new square deal.
“It is important for progressives to address and answer this question for themselves, well before the primaries, so as not to squander their resources of time, finances and conviviality fighting among themselves during the important lead-up to the primary elections where they must be strategically united in order to win.”
In other words, the candidates who are strongly progressive need to band together so they can win.
Many 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls have reportedly been spending a significant chunk of their time on the trail cozying up to Wall Street executives and raking in checks at big-dollar events across the nation.
