In case it was not obvious already that the establishment leftist media is in the tank for the Democrats against the Republicans, CNN’s Maeve Reston made it abundantly clear on Saturday when she tweeted about going shopping with 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Sen.

Supported by ByJonathan Martin and Alexander Burns Dec. 31, 2018 Senator Elizabeth Warren’s formation of an exploratory committee for president on Monday represents a sort of political ball drop, the beginning of a new year and new campaign that will feature an unusually large number of Democrats seeking the presidency. Or will it? As the 2020 Democratic primary gets underway, the defining characteristic of this first stage of the race is the sheer uncertainty about who is even running. More than 30 Democrats are mulling presidential bids, but hardly any of them qualifies as an instant front-runner or a gifted, tested campaigner, and some of the biggest names could pass in the end.
