The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will now go to Ohio on Oct. 15 to audition one dozen party candidates willing to represent them at the fourth of 12 televised debates with hopes of derailing President Donald Trump’s bid to secure a second term in the White House.
Determined to showcase their best performance, each will present reasons they are best suited to preside and foremost beat the Republican incumbent in the 2020 national elections.
Still standing since a campaign began with 20 contenders, former vice president Joe Biden, Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren and Vermont’s Bernie Sanders remain the frontrunners voters approve are the likeliest to win the Republican challenge.
Although Sanders suffered a slight setback and was forced to suspend his campaign after he felt chest pains and was later diagnosed with a heart attack, reports from his camp are that he was inserted with two stents to correct a blocked artery and will show up for a purported grilling from CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Reportedly the Socialist candidate will return to the stage and again repeat his agenda of health care for all and amplify the need of a committed climate change program.
Leading a field that includes Indiana Mayor Pete Butigieg, New York businessman Andrew Yang, former Texas representative Beto O’Rourke, California Senator Kamala Harris, Cory Booker from New Jersey, former Housing and Development secretary Julian Castro and Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar — all are convinced they can better lead the country.
Making history with the largest panel of Democratic debaters ever, billionaire Tom Steyer and Hawaiian Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also inched in by making the two percent margin to qualify for the forum.
Slated to argue their personal resentment of the current administration they each will present individual platforms they plan to implement after winning the high office.
Considering the recent public invitation by Trump to the Chinese government to intrude in the domestic affairs of America, plenty of impeachable offenses are likely to be banded about.
While the dozen does not all agree that impeachment is the right way for the DNC to go, they all are decided that Trump must go.
They agreed long before publicly announcing an interest to run. Each have stated repulsion to inappropriate behavior they allege dominate the White House leadership.
Compounded with allegations levied against the commander-in-chief regarding policy decisions, amplified arguments that he befriended long-time enemies of the USA — North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, Russian Czar Vladimir Putin — and most recently was accused of requesting traded favors from Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukraine leader — to implicate Biden with charges of corruption and nepotism family matters hover again with a closer look into the Trump/(Jared) Kushner administration.
The latter has infuriated a majority of the DNC with some conservative Republicans defying the rigid loyal support to now fall from the ranks.
His party affiliates were mostly annoyed by a Twitter message declaring abandonment of the Kurds who are defending their freedom in Turkey and Syria.
His decision to withdraw troops from the region might have also tipped the scales against him and seem cause celebre for a probable resignation and perhaps a President Nancy Pelosi.
This perspective by some Democrats is contrived with intolerance from VP Mike Pence, a perceived co-conspirator to allegations against the president regarding a Russian collusion to interfere in the 2016 elections and an enabler to the recent telephone scandal which has led to begin impeachment proceedings.
The debate begins at 8 pm on CNN and will be co-hosted by the New York Times.
