Also mentioned: This weekend is the National Governors Association summer meeting in Rhode Island, so a number of potential 2020 candidates will be in attendance (e.g., Bullock, Hickenlooper, McAuliffe):

Looks like Cuomo and Kasich are skipping though.


Looks like McAuliffe used the occasion to give Pence a backhanded "compliment":

Bullock forms "Big Sky Values PAC".

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/17/us/politics/democrat-governors-bullock-mcauliffe.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&smid=nytcore-iphone-share

Quote
Mr. Bullock is creating a federal political action committee, Big Sky Values PAC, that will offer a political infrastructure to let him meet Democratic donors, contribute to the party’s candidates and fund his out-of-state electoral travels.

As is typical for most potential candidates this far out from the next White House campaign, he said it was premature to discuss whether he would actually run.

I was sure he would run. I'm glad this is basically confirmed.

Harris got good reviews from the Dem. donors she met with on Saturday, with one fundraiser saying he's convinced that she's going to run for prez:

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/342431-dem-donors-buzzing-about-kamala-harris

Quote
The Democratic donor class is abuzz about Kamala Harris after the freshman California senator was feted this weekend at an event in the Hamptons surrounded by top fundraisers.

The Bridgehampton event, where Harris mingled with top donors and supporters of Hillary Clinton, was the ultimate signal that Harris is “thinking much bigger” than the Senate, one top bundler said.

“She’s running for president. Take it to the bank,” another fundraiser said. “She’s absolutely going to run.”

Joe Kennedy III responds to the Town & Country headline that named him "the next President Kennedy":

http://www.masslive.com/politics/index.ssf/2017/07/kennedy_for_president_massachu.html

Quote
"Furthest thing from my mind," he said after rallying with MBTA maintenance workers in Quincy. "Look, I've got an 18-month-old little girl, I've got a little boy on the way, we're dealing with health care, taxes and scandal after scandal coming from the Trump administration."
.
.
.
"The headline caught me by surprise and I caught an awful lot of flack from friends, family and anybody I know," he said. "So, no plans on that, thanks very much."

No plans to run for president in 2020 or no plans to ever make a run for the White House, this reporter asked Kennedy. His answer was emphatic but left the door open a crack in case plans change.

Kennedy said, "No plans on that, period."

Bullock talks some more about his new PAC:

http://ravallirepublic.com/news/state-and-regional/article_1dcfcc1e-b443-51de-a5fe-c5c1b931b62d.html

Quote
Tuesday afternoon, Bullock said the PAC will allow him to "share Montana's story."

“Montana has a story that I’m asked more and more often about as far as how we treat one another with respect, we actually work together to get some things done, from health care to campaign finance transparency and other things,” he told reporters. “The ability to be part of that conversation, I think lending our voice is significant (and) there is no mechanism under state law to do so, so we formed that (federal) PAC both to help out some people and to help travel, (that) allows me to be part of that."

When asked if he would consider a run for president, Bullock said “2020 is a long, long way away. I have no idea what I’ll be doing at that point.”

Meanwhile, Politico says that “no one close to” Roy Cooper thinks he’s going to run for president in 2020:

A supplement for that:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/17/us/politics/democrat-governors-bullock-mcauliffe.html

Quote
Yet Mr. Bullock already has the makings of a national stump speech. He boasts about his progressive accomplishments with a Republican-dominated legislature: He expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, cutting the rate of the state’s uninsured by over half, implemented stricter campaign finance laws and made Montana one of the few states to increase support for higher education.

While appealing to the Democratic heart, Mr. Bullock also has a message for the Democratic head. He talks of the party’s need to broaden its appeal beyond the coasts — Mr. Bullock won re-election as Donald J. Trump captured Montana by over 20 points — while implying they cannot turn to a septuagenarian as their nominee.

“There’s a lot of folks out there talking that are a lot older than middle-aged guys like me,” said Mr. Bullock, 51, alluding to some of the party’s best-known figures.

Quote
Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, the chairman of the National Governors Association, exuberantly led a panel that drew Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada and the Tesla entrepreneur Elon Musk, with an eye toward raising his profile. The host governor, Gina Raimondo of Rhode Island, may also be open to a presidential run.

And while each is from a decidedly more Democratic state than Mr. Bullock, both are also unapologetic, business-friendly pragmatists with a focus on economic development that borders on obsessive.

Rev are pretty much the best in the business at raising money on-line. Still not a definite sign that she's running for President; this could just be building her grassroots fundraising apparatus for other reasons.

This story is about the large 2020 Dem. field in general, with the one notable part being these quotes about Biden's book tour from a "former Biden adviser", which may or may not reflect Biden-world's thinking:

http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/342851-dems-see-huge-field-emerging-to-take-on-trump

Quote
Biden will embark this fall on a 19-city book tour, which one former adviser said will be “a barometer” for a 2020 run.

Some of Biden’s supporters think a large pool could help the former vice president if he chooses to run. “Absent an Obama-level talent to break through the rank of newbies, [he] would be the only one with a pretty comfortable 20-30 percent that knows him and feels really positive about him, which is a great asset in a big, big field,” a former adviser to Biden said.

Elizabeth Warren was among the Dem. Senators (I guess Reed and Wyden were also there?) attending a DSCC donor retreat this past weekend:

http://ijr.com/the-declaration/2017/07/925059-anti-wall-street-elizabeth-warren-attends-dinner-hosted-wall-street/

The right-o-sphere is now going after Warren over hypocrisy on this, because the event was hosted by former UBS president Robert Wolf (who posted about it on Twitter), and Warren has been a big critic of Wall Street:

Quote
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been one of the biggest critics of Wall Street for years, but recently, she made a fascinating appearance in Martha's Vineyard to speak to big bank executives.

Back in 2014, Warren demanded that Wall Street bankers receive jail time for their role in the 2008 financial collapse. Now she's cozying up to them in Martha's Vineyard.

Looks like Maxine Waters is also headed to New Hampshire to boost that same state senate candidate.  When asked about the trip, she said that she would run for president in 2020 if Millennials want her to, but then said that she was joking:
