Top Democrat: Biden's abortion flip-flop could cost him 2020 nomination

Washington Examiner - 06-07


President Barack Obama's chief strategist in his successful 2008 and 2012 campaigns said Joe Biden's reversal on abortion could cost him the party's nomination. “This underscores questions that people have had about whether he can go the distance,” David Axelrod said on CNN. “The virtue of having a long record and comforting people and being a figure of stability has the flip side that you have to defend positions that you’ve had over the course of 45 years in politics.”
