Joe Kimball Attorney Fort Worth – Former Vice President Joe Biden entered the race to bypass his primary opponents and take on President Donald Trump. The president and his allies, in turn, seem willing to help with this task — whether they think it’s a good idea or not.
But with the Robert Mueller saga not over, the focus on the Democratic presidential nomination will be delayed. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is now saying that Attorney General William Barr lied to Congress and in 2020 people are making confusing calls with her resignation and Trump’s impeachment.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll released this week found that 47 percent of voters said they believe the president is obstructing justice. However, 56% believe that Congress should not initiate impeachment proceedings. And that was before Mueller’s report on the attorney general’s initial public disclosure of the special counsel’s concerns came out.
However, new information does not necessarily change political reality. And in the first place, it turns out, the competition does not guarantee the center of gravity.
The Democratic National Committee decided to bring the limits to 20: that 10 candidates each night in two nights. One would be surprised, though, that all 21 meet the DNC’s previously disclosed threshold: polling at least 1% in three national or state primary polls, or receiving donations from 65,000 unique donors.

If more than 20 candidates qualify for the debate, the party said it plans to select the top 20 “using a method that prioritizes candidates who meet both thresholds, followed by the highest polling average , followed by the most unique donors.”
Take note, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, claimed Thursday that she has met both the poll requirement and the donor requirement. Hope to see more of this jam.
Call it the first full campaign weekend. The Biden race appears to have taken us beyond the early stages of the 2020 Democratic primary and into the next — equally uncertain — race.
Biden will travel through South Carolina this weekend, a critical test for him among African-American voters, while seven candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, will go through Iowa.

Recent polls show Warren’s legal challenge to Sanders in second place among Democrats. But both are likely waiting for Biden’s primary boom to die down, with the first debates of the cycle now less than two months away.
