FEATURING NINA TURNER – As Joe Biden’s low-key election campaign for President relies on Donald Trump’s campaign self-imploding, polls show the former Vice President with a double-digit lead over the incumbent. The question arises of what Biden’s presidency would look like given that growing numbers of Democrats are identifying more with the left flank of the party that Senator Bernie Sanders represents.
A battle is now brewing over who will represent California Democrats at the party’s National Convention this summer. Traditionally it would be the Governor of the state – in this case Gavin Newsom – who would lead the California delegation to the 2020 DNC. But a number of progressive organizations are demanding that Congressman Ro Khanna lead the delegation instead.
