bernie-sandersWASHINGTON, D.C. - Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are battling to be seen as the main alternative to former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race.

Warren has been climbing in polls in recent weeks, surpassing Sanders in some surveys.

But Sanders, who in 2016 was the progressive alternative to front runner Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race, is holding relatively firmly in the polls. He’s been ahead of Warren and in second place in some surveys, and his team continues to believe it is being underestimated.

MADISON - The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin chair Ben Wikler on news that Rep. Sean Duffy will be resigning from Congress:

Nurturing these children is a full-time job, and one that takes great emotional strength from the families who love them. I will be hoping for the best for Sean and Rachel as they prepare to welcome their child to the world.”

joe-bidenWASHINGTON, D.C. - Joe Biden's electability argument is increasingly showing signs of weakness.

voter-dataWASHINGTON, D.C. - The quest for the Democratic presidential nomination is becoming a four-horse race.

Meanwhile, at the head of the pack, only a major surprise would deliver the nomination to anyone outside the top quartet: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
