Meanwhile Mayor Pete looks the stave off Elizabeth Warren’s attack against him by releasing the names of the businesses he consulted with in his younger years. The mayor also has agreed to allow the media into fundraising events.
On today’s The World As I
Like It To Be podcast we discuss the exodus of Kamala Harris from the 2020
democratic race for president. Denise
from California has strong views on this and so do I.
