Congress Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Thursday called the rise of Democratic freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "the best thing" for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. “She’s making quite a name for herself, and I hope that she continues to be the face of the Democratic Party,” Huckabee said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” “It's the best thing that Donald Trump and the Republicans have going for them in 2020.”Story Continued Below The former Republican governor also mused over claims that Ocasio-Cortez was being directed by more powerful people in the progressive wing. “I know there has been some allegations that she was almost like the Manchurian candidate — recruited, prepared,” Huckabee said, referring to the novel and movie in which a brainwashed American is deployed as a communist sleeper agent to overthrow the U.S. government.

In the 18 years from my first faculty appointment, one of the most satisfying parts of the journey has been watching students come through my life who you can tell - you just "know" - are going to make a huge difference in the world. (I previously wrote of one of these here, Arizona clinical pharmacist, Sandra Leal, PharmD.) Well, two years ago, I was at the kickoff of a Juneteenth celebration at my new institution and was immediately drawn to this striking young man who, after speaking with him for a spell, convinced me that he was going to be one of these kinds of students. It's not just that he stands out from a crowd because he's taller than me. Anyone who has met Jason Dorsette will tell you that the man just simply exudes warmth and elegance.

OAKLAND — Rep. Barbara Lee of Oakland, one of the party’s most outspoken progressive voices, will formally launch her campaign Monday to chair the House Democratic Caucus — a post that would make her the first African-American woman to hold a leadership spot in either major political party. “When you look at the history of the Democratic Party and the Democratic leadership, African-American women...we’ve been the backbone of the Democratic Party — we should be in the face of leadership also,’’ Lee told POLITICO in an interview Sunday. Whether it comes to grassroots issues, or voter mobilization and political activism, she said, black women have long proven they can “lead not only our communities, but lead our country, on the very tough issues facing us.” Story Continued Below Lee, first elected to Congress in 1998 in one of the nation’s most liberal bastions, argues she has a long record as a coalition-builder who has … [Read more...] about Barbara Lee to announce bid for Democratic Caucus chair
