Potential Presidential Candidate Changes Tune on Corporate Contributions
AUBURN, AL- When the American people vote for president in November 2020, Bernie Sanders will be 79 years old- a number that makes a second bid for the White House a notion that is not a foregone conclusion.
So, that leaves his wing of the Party desperately searching for candidates that will take up his mantle. While Elizabeth Warren has been a frontrunner on the Left, Kamala Harris has attracted some attention as an alternative.
Those aspirations hit a snag recently when she expressed an openness to accepting corporate contributions- a major “no” in today’s Democratic Party.
Clearly, Harris did not anticipate the backlash, and she has now reversed course to join other contenders Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Saying she had not expected the question, she now will reject corporate contributions. This reversal comes after defending her “it depends,” answer after she gave it to a questioner who told her the answer was the “wrong answer.”
