Joe Biden says he would consider picking Elizabeth Warren as his running mate – Salon

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday that he would consider choosing Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as his running mate, though he clarified that it would be presumptuous of him to discuss potential picks in advance of securing the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. “I’d add Senator Warren to my list. I’d add all — But she’s going to be very angry at my having said that. The question is: 'Would she add me to her list?'” Biden asked Axios’ Mike Allen on Sunday.

Red State Senate Democrats Not Yet Convinced They Will Vote to Convict Trump on Articles of Impeachment – Breitbart

If the House of Representatives does end up passing Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump, setting up a U.S. Senate trial, there is no guarantee that Democrats in the Senate will be unified behind convicting President Trump in the upper chamber of Congress.

Joe Manchin (D-WV) told Breitbart News on Monday that the red state Democrat has not yet made up his mind on whether he would vote to convict Trump in the Senate. “He hasn’t made up his mind and he’s waiting on the articles to come to the Senate,”

Senator Marco Rubio plans legislation to block U.S. government pensions from investing in Chinese stocks after the board overseeing the funds put off a decision that would add exposure to China. The Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board on Monday addressed concerns that switching the benchmark for its $50 billion TSP I Fund to mirror an index with Chinese assets would undermine U.S. economic and national security.

Political Risk In China’s State-Owned Enterprises Is Rising – Seeking Alpha

Western politicians are out in force with harsh China rhetoric. Among those making hardline comments on Twitter are Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren - a top candidate for the Democratic nomination - and Republican senator Marco Rubio from Florida. One of the reasons U.S. politicians feel as if they have carte blanche to attack China is public sentiment. I can't be the only one who has been surprised by how much Western attitudes toward the country have deteriorated in the last year

Partisan politics defining Keene mayoral contest? – The Keene Sentinel

Excerpt:

A common thread in Facebook comments, letters to the editor and chatter around the city indicates many Keene residents have observed a theme in this year’s mayoral race: the influence of partisanship.
