    Elizabeth Warren Talks Gun Control in NH

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren talked about gun control in Conway, New Hampshire while Sen. Kristen Gillibrand kicked off her campaign outside of Trump Tower in New York City.

    (Published Monday, March 25, 2019)

    Democratic presidential candidates are making it clear that there are new voices competing for voters' attention.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren told a New Hampshire crowd that the National Rifle Association is holding "Congress hostage'' when it comes to stemming gun violence.

    The Massachusetts senator announced at a campaign rally that if seven children were dying from a mysterious virus, "we'd pull out all the stops till we figured out what was wrong.'' But in terms of gun violence, she says the NRA "keeps calling the shots in Washington.''

    Warren finished a two-day campaign trip to New Hampshire with an event at  a middle school in Conway Sunday afternoon.

    Warren focused much of her speech on her approach to economics, but paid special attention to unions Sunday. She said that more power needs to be put back in the hands of workers.

    California Sen. Kamala Harris sent a signal to the nation's old-guard that there's a time to move aside. At an Atlanta church service Sunday dedicated to youth, the presidential candidate compared leadership to a relay race in which older leaders must decide "when to pass the baton.''

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand made her official announcement in front of the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York and called him a coward who "punches down.'' 

    Howard Schultz will attend the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Monday evening. That's according to Schultz aide Erin McPike.

    Schultz's decision to attend the annual AIPAC conference in Washington comes as Democrats have been grappling with the left's criticism of Israel and as most presidential candidates are sitting this year's conference out. Schultz is actively considering an independent presidential bid himself.

    On Friday, Schultz responded to a tweet from the liberal advocacy group MoveOn, which has been urging Democratic presidential candidates not to attend. He said that the "unwillingness of the far left to even speak with people they may disagree with is one of the worst symbols of the dysfunction in Washington today.''
