Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., last Thursday said she would serve her full term if re-elected in November, and squashed rumors she would be running for president in 2020, per a report in Politico. “Yes, that’s my plan. I’m running for the United States Senate in 2018,” Warren told reporters Thursday at a town hall meeting for the Boston Teachers when asked about committing to serve her six-year term. “I am not running for president of the United States. That’s my plan.”' Warren holds a large fundraising advantage over her opponents for U.S. senator, and recent polls had her leading the race by 30 points with a 53 percent approval rating. One of the most outspoken Democrats on Capitol Hill, Warren was first elected in 2012. It was rumored that Warren would jump into the 2020 presidential race after she made a series of moves that would put her in prime position to run, but the senator outright squashed those rumors Thursday. … [Read more...] about Sen.

So which Democrat would President Donald Trump most like to run against in 2020? He says it's Joe Biden. Trump tells CBS News in an interview broadcast Thursday that "I dream about Biden." Biden, who was vice president under Barack Obama, sought the Democratic presidential nomination twice but eventually dropped out of each race. Biden considered running in 2016, but decided against it, citing the trauma of his son Beau's death from cancer in 2015. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he misspoke during his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Trump said he does "accept" the intelligence community's conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 election.

POLITICS 07/26/2018 12:41 pm ET Updated 30 minutes ago There was enough evidence the decision could have been discriminatory to move the case forward. By Sam Levine A federal judge in New York ruled Thursday that a lawsuit challenging the Trump administration’s decision to add a question asking about citizenship to the 2020 census could advance, saying the challengers had shown enough evidence that the decision could have been driven by discrimination to move the case forward. While making it clear that the merits of the lawsuit would be decided in the future, U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman said the challengers had presented enough evidence for the cause to continue. “Courts have a critical role to play in reviewing the conduct of the political branches to ensure that the census is conducted in a manner consistent with the Constitution and applicable law,” Furman, who was appointed to the bench by President Barack Obama, wrote in his ruling. … [Read more...] about Judge Says Suit Challenging Citizenship Question On 2020 Census Can Advance

Swalwell, 37, will reportedly be the first potential candidate to head to Iowa.
