Понедельник, 08 Июн, 2020

Presumptive Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden announced late on Friday that his party had "secured" him the minimum 1991 delegates needed to win the formal nomination.

After he suffered in key early nominating votes in Iowa and New Hampshire, leading African American political influencers swung behind Barack Obama's two-term vice-president in the run-up to the SC primary and the Super Tuesday series of primaries and Biden scored unexpectedly resounding victories.

The op-ed was signed by a mix of Republicans and Democrats, including former defense secretaries Leon Panetta, Chuck Hagel, Ash Carter and William Cohen; former national intelligence director James Clapper; former CIA director Michael Hayden; and former Navy secretaries Sean O'Keefe, Ray Mabus and Richard Danzig. "Today, the FOP and other labor groups are far less open to addressing gun control issues, things that traditionally they supported and that Biden worked very closely and successfully with them on". As a Senator, he had voted to approve the landmark civilian nuclear deal between the two countries in 2008. We have to appeal to that and unite people.

The former vice president started his speech addressing the coronavirus pandemic and the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, then spent a significant portion of his remarks addressing Latino Democrats.

"This is a hard time in America's history".
