    WASHINGTON - Joe Biden is under pressure to pick a Black woman as his vice presidential running mate. But polls suggest the most popular prospect among Black Democrats is white. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are widely seen by Democratic officials and activists close to the process as front-runners, though other candidates remain in the mix and a Biden aide told NBC News that "the process is dynamic and ongoing and no final decision has been made." **SNIP** “I don’t support an all-white ticket,” said Aimee Allison, the president of She the People, a progressive group...

    I love Elizabeth Warren. She’s got the the intellectual breadth of a policy wonk; the strategic touch of a U.S. senator who’s served on banking, housing, health, education, labor and pensions committees; the gentle, no-nonsense grace of a longtime schoolteacher; a progressive agenda; boundless energy; a sly wit and an enormous heart.

    Joe Biden’s search for a running mate has advanced to the next phase as his campaign conducts more extensive reviews of some prospects, including at least several African American women, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Among the candidates who have progressed to the point of more comprehensive vetting or have the potential to do so are Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., former national security adviser Susan Rice and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, all of whom are black. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is white, is also in that group, as is New Mexico...

    Elizabeth Warren is among the top three choices for Joe Biden's running mate, according to his selection committee. Aides to Biden, the two-term vice president and now the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, are seriously considering the Massachusetts senator and former White House hopeful, the Associated Press reported Friday. Warren's name has floated to the top of the short list, along with California Sen. Kamala Harris and Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice, as his vetting team enters the process's second stage. Pundits believe Warren could energize more liberal Democrats compared to Biden, but she's a septuagenarian like him and...
  • Breaking News: Republican senators def Donald Trump by voting to strip Confederate generals' names from Army bases — despite White House threatening a veto

    Republican senators rebelled against Donald Trump late Wednesday by voting to tell the Army to rename bases named after Confederate generals within the next three years. The Armed Services Committee, whose members include Trump ultra-loyalist Tom Cotton, voted behind closed doors for the move, Roll Call first reported. The voice vote was on an amendment to the annual Pentagon policy bill — the Defense Authorization Act — which was put forward by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat and former presidential candidate. It came hours after Donald Trump tweeted furiously that he will “not even consider” renaming Forts Bragg, Hood,...

    On Monday, May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a proud Black man, was killed by a member of law enforcement in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, Emmett Till. The list goes on and on.

    Nearly two-thirds of the 60 people arrested Friday night during riots in downtown Detroit over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis were from the city’s predominantly white suburbs. Thirty-seven of those taken into custody were from places like Warren, Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield and even Grand Blanc, which is about 60 miles (96 kilometers) northwest of Detroit, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Saturday....Although Detroit is about 80% black, many of those arrested were white.

    Liberal filmmaker and frequent Trump-critic Michael Moore encouraged violent protesters in Minneapolis to “revolt” and “demolish” police stations, all while accusing “White Minnesota” of tolerating the “murder” of black people. Moore’s tweets Demonstrators looted stores, clashed with police, and set stores and various buildings, including a police station, on fire in response to the killing of 46-year-old black Minneapolis resident George Floyd, who died while in police custody on Monday. The St. Paul Police Department stated that over 170 businesses were “damaged or looted” and “dozens of fires” were started.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Friday accused President Donald Trump of advocating for “illegal, state-sponsored killing” after the president threatened to use the National Guard to crack down on riots in Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd’s death. “Donald Trump is calling for violence against Black Americans,” Warren, who is under consideration as a possible running mate for Joe Biden, wrote on social media. “His advocacy of illegal, state-sponsored killing is horrific. Politicians who refuse to condemn it share responsibility for the consequences.”

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is backtracking on the idea that his eventual running mate will be a woman of color. Biden, who is facing criticism after appearing to claim that African Americans considering voting for President Donald Trump “ain’t black,” told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday during an interview that he was not ready to promise to put a woman of color on the ticket despite rumors in recent weeks that he was heading in that direction. “Look, I’m not going to get into that now because we haven’t gotten there yet,” the former vice president said when asked...

    A new Morning Consult poll shows Senator Elizabeth Warren would help Joe Biden’s campaign for president more than any other potential vice-presidential candidate. Part of the reason for Warren’s strength is certainly her superior name recognition compared to some of the other candidates. All the Democrats who are pleading with Biden to choose a black female candidate to run with him might be wrong. Warren scores well with blacks and Hispanics, and those under 45. According to the May 22-26 survey, 26 percent of registered voters said placing her on the ticket would make them more likely to vote for...

    So much for Elizabeth Warren’s disdain for big-dollar donors. The Massachusetts senator has reportedly agreed to host a private fundraiser for the presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden after shunning such events as a candidate herself. Warren will host the online event on June 15, tapping the wealthy donors she’s amassed as a Massachusetts senator, The New York Times reported.

    In the thick of primary season, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden brawled over "Medicare for All”: He called her approach “angry,” “elitist,” “condescending”; she shot back, anyone who defends the health care status quo with industry talking points is “running in the wrong presidential primary.” Six months later, with Biden the presumptive Democratic nominee and Warren in the running for VP, she is striking a more harmonious chord. Advertisement "I think right now people want to see improvements in our health care system, and that means strengthening the Affordable Care Act," she told students at the University of Chicago’s Institute...

    Whether on the defensive or the offensive, presidential candidates rarely have an opportunity to take a breath and send a clear signal about how their administrations will govern. Currently, the media is salivating over who will be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate. Will it be Sen. Kamala Harris of California? Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams? Or a dark-horse selection like Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada? But in the current moment, Biden's VP may not be the most important announcement he can make. Given the lawlessness, criminality and corruption that seem to have spread so virulently throughout this...

    Big money donors are pressuring Joe Biden to not choose Sen. Elizabeth Warren as his running mate, even while the centrist former vice president tries to appeal to progressive voters. Those conversations have recently included attempts to push the campaign away from picking Warren and encouraging the choice of other candidates purportedly on his list, such as Sens. Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar, and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. “She would be horrible. He would lose the election,” said a Wall Street executive who was once backing others running in the Democratic primary and later joined Biden’s donor ranks. GP: CNN/NYT...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Wednesday that she would agree to running as vice president on the Democratic ticket with presumptive presidential candidate Joe Biden. Asked by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow what she would say if the former vice president asked her to be his running mate, Warren said she would say yes. The comments come just hours after Warren endorsed Biden, her former primary opponent, in the race. Warren expanded on her endorsement Wednesday during her interview with Maddow, praising Biden for his empathy that she said would be beneficial in leading the country, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday endorsed Joe Biden for president, more than a month after ending her own presidential bid. "In this moment of crisis, it’s more important than ever that the next president restores Americans’ faith in good, effective government—and I’ve seen Joe Biden help our nation rebuild. Today, I’m proud to endorse," she tweeted, along with a video. The Massachusetts senator had withheld an endorsement ever since ending her campaign in early March, even as the race narrowed to essentially a contest between Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. But with Sanders dropping out last week, Biden became the...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released a plan Tuesday intended to secure elections during the coronavirus pandemic through mail-in voting and increasing online voter registration.The plan, first reported by Mother Jones, calls on states to ensure every eligible American has the ability to vote by mail, sending voters a ballot with pre-paid postage. Warren urged Congress to pass a bill proposed by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) last month intended to ensure mail-in voting during the pandemic. Warren also advocated for Congress to send states $4 billion to address election needs, a major increase from the $400 million...
