Read this and nod your head as you do, because this is exactly what the focus of the 2020 election ought to be – these are the questions that need answers, not how big Trump’s package is or what happened with Hillary’s emails:
Rep. John Delaney may not be the presidential candidate Democrats want. But the wealthy, low-profile congressman and newly minted 2020 hopeful believes he’s what the country needs.
Delaney, whose district stretches from some of Maryland’s wealthiest D.C. suburbs to rural counties bordering West Virginia, thinks his combination of private and public sector experience, and his faith in both, are the answer. His campaign motto, at least for now, is “Focus on the Future.” And Delaney is planning a campaign focused on problems caused by globalization, automation and technology, issues he says are getting ignored in a hopeless national political conversation.
“You need a villain in politics,” Delaney said in an interview. “My villain is partisan politics. It’s destroying our ability to govern.”
Yes, yes, yes, more of this. Please.
