Kamala Harris' 2020 campaign raised $1.5 million in its first day

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) raised $1.5 million from 38,000 online donors in the 24 hours after she announced her 2020 presidential run, according to her campaign.

Why it matters: Harris has said she will reject corporate PAC money to fund her campaign, making these grassroots donations — the average was $37 — crucial to her bid for the White House. Small-dollar, online donations helped Democratic candidates at all levels across the country in the 2018 midterms and Harris' success suggests the momentum is still there for the 2020 cycle.

AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ro Khanna all won spots on Oversight Committee

Rep. Dan Kildee, a member of the Democratic steering panel, said he was excited about the progressive picks.

“I want people to be aggressive, especially on that committee. It’s good to have people who aren’t afraid,” the Michigan Democrat said in an interview. “They’re going to be dealing with some pretty important stuff.”

Ben & Jerry's lies to consumers about their ingredients - says their cows are in a "Caring Dairy"

program, when in fact, they are sourcing typical factory dairy farms. Too bad, as I love their Cherry Garcia.

Glyphosate Pressure Grows on Ben & Jerry’s after Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit Fails

Organic Consumers Association (OCA) today announced that the District of Columbia Superior Court rejected Ben & Jerry’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit OCA brought against the Unilever-owned brand in July 2018 under the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Procedures Act (CPPA).

“We are pleased that the court agrees that Ben & Jerry’s can be held accountable for the claims it makes about its products, and how the production of those products impacts animal welfare and the environment,” said Ronnie Cummins, OCA’s international director. “This is a major victory for millions of consumers who have been deceived by Ben & Jerry’s marketing claims.”

OCA sued Ben & Jerry’s for the deceptive labeling, marketing and sale of its ice cream products as humanely sourced and environmentally responsible, despite the fact that ingredients are sourced from typical factory dairy farms and some of the products contain traces of glyphosate, an environmentally harmful biocide and the key active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup® weedkiller.
The court also agreed that Ben & Jerry’s general messages about humane treatment of cows in the “Caring Dairy” program and “values-led sourcing” may mislead customers into believing that Ben & Jerry’s uses ingredients only from dairy farms with higher-than-average animal welfare standards, when the evidence may suggest otherwise.

AOC, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Deb Haaland, Veronica Escobar, Sharice Davids - Vanity Fair

Love it - they all have some attitude. "We did not come to play."


Freshman Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Deb Haaland, Veronica Escobar, and Sharice Davids have sought to project one message since setting foot in Washington: “We did not come to play.” All six women, along with dozens of others, represent the new face of the Democratic Party—young, nonwhite, L.G.B.T.Q., disproportionately female. In the few months since they’ve overtaken the Hill, they have indeed proved that “playing” is not on their agenda. Ocasio-Cortez and Omar have earned the support of veteran lawmakers in their push to make climate change a priority when Congress reconvenes this month—a movement that gained notoriety in large part thanks to the former’s barnstorming of Nancy Pelosi’s office. With midterms fast receding, the real test lies in the months to come. “There’s so many people that know that we’re going into the lion’s den,” Ocasio-Cortez said in November, “even within the party.”
