As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
A pair of former chairmen of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) — Democratic Reps. Emanuel Cleaver (Mo.) and G.K. Butterfield (N.C.) — endorsed Joe Biden’s 2020 bid this week, demonstrating the former vice president’s strong ties to the black community.
Butterfield told The Associated Press in an interview published Thursday that he did not believe Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) or Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) could win his home state of North Carolina in a general election against President Trump because their policies were too progressive.
The article goes on to state the following:
“[Biden] can connect with the average American — black, white or brown,” Butterfield told the news service. “Warren and Sanders cannot win North Carolina.”
“I have great respect for both of them, but they cannot win North Carolina. Joe Biden can,” he said.
In a separate interview with the AP, Emanuel Cleaver said that he told Biden that states like Missouri would be must-win in 2020.
“I told him, ’If you are the nominee, you have to campaign everywhere; you cannot surrender any geography to Mr. Trump,’” Cleaver said. “He assured me he will not do that.”
