Media Coverage of 2020 Presidential Candidates
This month in review: the latest roundup from the presidential race.
This week, Biden maintained his high with Sanders and Warren following. Notably, Tom Steyer rose from 10th to 6th place amid media coverage of data breach and controversy in his campaign.
According to an article from Politico, “Tom Steyer on Friday shrugged off a rocky week for his presidential campaign that saw one staffer in South Carolina resign after improperly accessing another (Kamala Harris) campaign’s data and another aide in Iowa face accusations of literally trying to buy endorsements.
Speaking to reporters at a campaign event in South Carolina, Steyer said his campaign is conducting a thorough investigation of the accusations leveled against the Iowa aide and promised transparency…
…The Associated Press reported Thursday that a top Iowa aide had “privately offered campaign contributions to local politicians in exchange for endorsing [Steyer’s] White House bid,” offers that would not necessarily be illegal, but are not a great look for a politician campaigning on getting big money out of politics.”
Steyer, one of the earliest crusaders of Trump’s impeachment, has continued to inform the narrative on the topic and has used the controversy and his transparent handling of the situation to lead by example.
