They need another Democrat to jump in the race – and they’ve got a few people in mind!
Most Americans look at the Democratic primary for 2020 yawn in boredom. Others see a big clown car full of jokers.
None of the left’s “frontrunners” appear all that impressive. Do they actually think they have a chance against Trump?
Joe Biden looks sleepy, Bernie looks too extreme, and Warren just can’t stop coming up with fake sob stories.
In fact, some powerful Democratic donors are having cold feet.
And they just scrambled in New York, hoping to save the 2020 race.
From Daily Caller:
Half a dozen Democratic donors gathered in New York last week to discuss who could be persuaded to join the 2020 presidential race.
The anxious donors attended a dinner the progressive group American Bridge hosted at the Whitby Hotel in Manhattan. The dinner turned into a discussion of which Democratic figures had not yet entered the race who might be able to save the 2020 election, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
Wow, this is rich! A bunch of top liberal to donors flew to New York to discuss getting somebody, anybody, to run in the 2020 race.
They floated the names of Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, John Kerry, and Michelle Obama—someone whose arm they could twist to get into the race.
Really, guys, really? This is about the next President of the United States. You want to just beg someone else to jump in now?
I understand your fears. The current lineup just doesn’t have what it takes. Biden’s campaign could be gone soon thanks to the Ukraine scandal.
Trump already humiliated Warren over her DNA test. And the rest of the crowd just doesn’t have what it takes to take on the Donald.
But what can you really do to get someone like Bloomberg or Michelle Obama to run? These millionaires (and billionaires) don’t want to get involved in your sinking ship.
Sure, they’ll give a half-hearted endorsement for whoever gets the nom. But they don’t want to ruin their reputations running against Trump!
And then there’s running the people who already lost, Clinton and Kerry. How do you think that’s going to work out?
But it will be really interesting to see if these big donors can get one of these names to run.
Not that Trump is worried. With the biggest presidential re-election war chest in history to this point, I don’t think he’s worried one bit.
