Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms among the Hot Air readership. Your present: Sunday brunch with a group of candidates who are unlikely to last past the New Hampshire primary next year.
The one exception is Kamala Harris, who remains a top-tier candidate because of her potential to consolidate black voters but who’s slipped through the cracks lately. Biden’s surging, Bernie’s fading, Warren appears to be gaining traction as the candidate of “ideas,” but Harris is just kind of … there, not in decline but not picking up any momentum either. She’s decided to “reset” her campaign by attacking Trump more and, probably, by steering a bit more towards the center to compete with Biden. She launched her candidacy running as a stalwart progressive but that niche increasingly appears to be a contest between Sanders and Warren. And it’s an awkward fit for black voters, who tend to be more moderate. She’ll be on “State of the Union” to debut Kamala 2.0.
Otherwise, it’s also-rans this morning. Cory Booker will sit down with “This Week” to explain his strategy for breaking through the three-percent ceiling that he’s encountered so far while two asterisk candidates, Michael Bennet and Seth Moulton, will appear on “Face the Nation” and “Fox News Sunday,” respectively. There’s no one from the White House booked as I write this on Saturday to discuss the prospects of war with Iran, Venezuela, and/or North Korea, but we’ve got the next best thing. Rand Paul and Kevin McCarthy, both loyal servants of the president, will be on “This Week” and “Face the Nation,” respectively, to talk foreign policy and explain why Donald Trump Jr shouldn’t have to answer any more questions from the Senate Intelligence Committee even though neither one’s a member and has no idea what the committee wants to ask him about.
Because it’s a day ending in “Y,” Adam Schiff will also guest. Try “This Week” if you don’t already have enough Schiff in your life. The full line-up is at the AP.
