Sanders, Biden, Clinton? This Week in the 2020 Race

Senator Bernie Sanders at a rally at the State Historical Museum of Iowa in Des Moines on Monday.

The board wrote[1] that “both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration” and that it was endorsing “the most effective advocates for each approach.”

Separately, The Des Moines Register’s editorial board is expected to announce its endorsement[2] for the Iowa Democratic caucuses on Saturday night.

  • And one additional note: Our colleague Jonathan Martin reported that Senator Kamala Harris of California, a former candidate in the presidential race, is weighing an endorsement of Mr. Biden[3].

Mr. Bloomberg wants to fix America’s potholes. Really.

His infrastructure plan[4], released Wednesday, includes a $1 billion annual “pothole fund” as well as $850 billion over 10 years for capital investment in roads, bridges, freight and other infrastructure; $100 billion over 10 years to fix water systems; and a tripling of federal investment in public transportation.

Mr. Bloomberg laid out the plan in a speech at the United States Conference of Mayors[5]. Citing his experience as mayor of New York City, he promised to hold states accountable for finishing the projects they start, and maintaining their infrastructure. At the same time, he pledged to put more power in the hands of local authorities.

If elected president, he said, he would create a “national map” of all roads, trains, air, freight and other transit routes, and set clear metrics to measure the health of the nation’s infrastructure.

  • Ms. Warren released a plan[6] to “restore integrity and competence to government.” Among other things, she proposed establishing a Justice Department task force to investigate corruption under the Trump administration.

  • Mr. Biden outlined his foreign policy agenda in an essay for Foreign Affairs magazine[7].
