Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has re-registered as a Democrat amid rumors he's running for president. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg) Michael Bloomberg is back -- in the Democratic Party, that is. The former New York City mayor re-registered as a Democrat Wednesday, sharing the news to Instagram amid rumors he's planning to launch a 2020 presidential bid. "At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution. Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats," Bloomberg said. "Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat -- I had been a member for most of my life -- because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs."

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s majority leader, insisting his chamber won’t be irreparably damaged by the bitter fight over new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is signaling he’s willing to take up another high court nomination in the 2020 presidential election season should another vacancy arise. “We’ll see if there is a vacancy in 2020,” said Sen.

In Sunday show appearances on CBS News' "Face the Nation" and Fox News' "Fox News Sunday," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell offered an explanation of his decision to keep President Obama's Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland from being considered by the Senate: "We simply followed the tradition in America, which is if you have a party of a different -- a different Senate of a different party than the president, you don't fill a vacancy created in the presidential year," he told "Fox News Sunday's" Chris Wallace. "That went all the way back to 1888." After Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016, McConnell said: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president." Wallace asked McConnell about his stand: "When you blocked Merrick Garland's nomination from President Obama, you basically said that we don't do this in a … [Read more...] about McConnell doesn’t rule out confirming SCOTUS nominee in presidential election year
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Friday said that if former Vice President Joe Biden runs in 2020 he would be “hard to beat.” Just prior to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote on advancing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Graham commented, “I can’t believe we’re saying this on our side, listen to Joe. But Joe was right a lot. Joe Biden’s a unique guy…He’s a decent guy. If he runs for president he’d be hard to beat.” The Associated Press reported in early September that Biden has indicated he will make his final decision on 2020 run by January.For now, Biden is focused on November’s midterm elections. When asked over the Labor Day weekend what’s at stake in the fast-approaching races, he replied, “Everything.
