Guest Editorial: To Biden or Not to Biden: 2020 questions for Cindy and Meghan McCain

By Staff Report

We know Cindy and Meghan McCain are not backing President Donald Trump’s reelection bid.

But Cindy McCain said yesterday she’s also not backing Former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential bid.

“Joe Biden is a wonderful man and dear friend of the McCain family. However, I have no intention of getting involved in presidential politics,” Cindy McCain said via Twitter.

Her daughter, Meghan, hasn’t officially endorsed Biden but she is psyched about him appearing on the ‘The View’.

“Thrilled the Vice President @Joe Biden will be giving his first exclusive interview since announcing his run for President with us @TheView table tomorrow morning. It’s no secret of my love and friendship with Joe – and I can’t wait to talk to him tomorrow,” Meghan McCain said on Twitter Thursday.

All that came after a story by the Washington Examiner said the McCain family would back Biden’s presidential run. In case you missed it, the McCain crew are not fans of Trump and vice versa.

Biden has jumped into the crowded Democratic 2020. He and Bernie Sanders have led very early polls in the Democratic field.

Biden spoke at John McCain’s funeral last year. Trump was not invited.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democrat. And I loved John McCain,” Biden said.

Trump battled with McCain during and after the 2018 presidential elections. Trump has continued to jab at McCain after his death for his vote against GOP efforts to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act (i.e. ObamaCare).

McCain said in 2017 he turned over a salacious and unsubstantiated dossier on Trump and potential leverage held over him by Russia.

Arizona could be a key state in 2020 presidential election. Trump carried the state over Hillary Clinton in 2016. But Democrat Kyrsten Sinema won the 2018 race over Republican Martha McSally to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Flake, another Trump critic.

Democrats also won statewide races for Secretary of State and Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Biden has had to address criticism he’s been too touchy feely with some women and his traditional Democratic policies don’t mesh well with progressives.

But he is in good graces at the McCain household – especially compared to Trump.

MorThat came after a report from the Washington Examiner indicated the McCain family might back Biden’s run in the crowded Democratic field.
