Kamala Harris and Cory Booker 2020 Faves

NBC News interviewed dozens of CBC members and political insiders during last week’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Legislative Conference and found that the 2020 presidential favorites are Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ).Congressman Danny Davis (D-IL) said “without a doubt” African American voters would strongly favor Harris or Booker if one of them makes a serious bid, and that he expects only one of the two would run. "I don’t think you’d get both," he said. Congressman G.K. Butterfield (D-NC) said, "Booker and Harris are visionary leaders who enjoy broad support and respect in the African American community ... The Black community is not monolithic, so political thought needs to develop on the next presidential campaign. We will look at the totality of candidates and seek to reach consensus on who can beat the Republican nominee." When asked about Harris, Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) said, "I like her a lot, but I like a lot of the candidates ... It’s very early." See how other CBC members weighed in here.
