California Campaign Events | Speeches, Interviews, Town Halls
Amy Klobuchar spoke with CNN's Alisyn Camerota on New Day about her performance in the sixth Democratic presidential debate the night before. Klobuchar was asked about her thoughts after many viewers gave her debate performance high accolades and she responded that she is just being herself. She also stressed that she feels she's the best candidate that can win back the crucial swing-states that went to Donald Trump in 2016.
Amy Klobuchar spoke with the cast of Morning Joe the morning after what is widely considered her best debate performance to discuss the previous night and what she sees for herself moving forward. She was also blunt about her responsibility to be present in the Senate during the impeachment trial of President Trump and that her duty as a Senator takes precedent, even if it is to the detriment of her campaign.
Elizabeth Warren spoke with PBS NewsHour correspondent Lisa Desjardins after the sixth Democratic Presidential debate to discuss the evening and how she felt it went. Warren spent much of the interview lamenting how money plays a major part in “every decision that gets made” in Washington and explained how her wealth tax would begin to help alleviate that. She also spoke about the importance of having a person of color on the Presidential ticket to better reflect the diversity of America.
Pete Buttigieg spoke with Vaughn Hillyard of MSNBC after the sixth Democratic Presidential debate concluded and was given a chance to react to the criticism he received from the other Democrats about his experience and ability to connect with people outside of, to put it politically correct, less "traditional" states. Buttigieg insisted that his youthfulness is a net positive and that he has plenty of experience to be President. He also pushed back on the notion that he doesn't have any support in non-white communities.
The 6th Democratic debate co-hosted by PBS NewsHour and Politico will be held at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. The seven candidates who qualified will share the same stage for a single-night of debate. It begins at 8:00PM Eastern and is slated to end at 10:30PM. This will be the last debate of 2019.
Kamala Harris spoke with Lawrence O'Donnell of The Last Word to talk about the impeachment investigation into Donald Trump the House is conducting and what she is doing to ensure the Trump Administration will preserve all evidence related to the probe, especially evidence that could show potential wrongdoing by Trump. She also discussed a bill she coauthored with Senator Richard Blumenthal that would require the entire Trump cabinet to preserve all documents related to the impeachment inquiry.
Kamala Harris spoke with Anderson Cooper on AC360 where she called for Twitter to suspend Donald Trump's Twitter account for tweets he posted that blatantly threatened the whistleblower who reported alleged wrongdoing by him. Harris said that Twitter would have immediately suspended any other individuals account and said that they have a double standard when it comes to Trump.
Joe Biden sat down for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live one day after Nancy Pelosi formally announced that the House of Representatives will open impeachment proceedings against President Trump due to the fact that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for him releasing military aid authorized by Congress to the country. Biden expressed deep concern about Trump's actions, saying "It's such a blatant abuse of power that I don't think it can stand. Based on the material that they acknowledged today, it seems to me it's awful hard to avoid the conclusion that it is an impeachable offense and a violation of constitutional responsibility."
