Sen. Elizebeth Warren (D-MA) revealed at Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate that she has a plan to “deal with” obstruction from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) if she becomes president.
At the first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle, host Chuck Todd asked Warren about what he called “the Mitch McConnell thing.”
“You have a lot of ambitious plans,” Todd said. “Do you have a plan to deal with Mitch McConnell? If you don’t beat him in the Senate and he is still the Senate majority leader, it’s plausible you can be president with a Republican Senate.”
“Do you have a plan to deal with Mitch McConnell?” Todd asked.
“I do,” Warren said, pausing to allow applause to subside. “Here’s how I see this happening. Sure, I want to see us get a Democratic majority in the Senate.”
“But short of a Democratic majority, you better understand the fight still goes,” she added. “It starts in the White House and it means that everyone we energize in 2020 stays on the frontlines come January 2021. We have to push from the outside and have leadership from the inside and make this Congress reflect the will of the people.”

Wild poll out of Texas finds Black Lives Matter more popular than the NRA in the Lone Star State
I'm a strong believer in paying attention to the polling averages rather than obsessing over individual polls, but rules are meant to be broken and a survey released on Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas, Tyler has some internal numbers that are worth digging into. So with the caveat that it's a single poll that's subject to error and offers only a snapshot in time, let's take a peek under the hood.
Most reports focus on the topline numbers, which have Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by five points, 48-43. That's somewhat worse for the incumbent than RealClearPolitics average, which shows the state in a dead tie with 45 percent of the vote for each candidate. But this isn't a crazy outlier; Quinnipiac had Biden up by four points in its early June survey, and the former Vice President has led the incumbent by smaller margins in several other recent polls.
RNC’s attack on Joe Biden backfires – internet cheers old photo of Joe holding his young son in his arms
RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest on Monday tweeted a photo of a young Joe Biden, cradling in his arms either Hunter Biden or his now-late son, Beau Biden. In the decades-old image the young child is wearing a Washington Redskins hat.
Guest appended a question to his tweet: "Hey Joe Biden are you still a Redskins fan?"
Early Monday the Redskins announced they are "retiring" their team's racist name, amid tremendous pressure from the left.
The attack backfired, as many on social media fell for the endearing photo of the young U.S. Senator in a warm, very personal moment with his child.
