John Delaney: The 7 Issues Guide

Today I bring you the 12th installment of TokyoSand’s excellent series, The 7 Issues Guide, helping us get to know a bit about the platforms of the democratic candidates running for the office of president next year. John Delaney is on deck today. I must admit that until today, I had never heard of John Delaney. He was the represented the 6th district of Maryland in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2013 until 2019, and did not run for re-election last year, preferring to focus on his bid for the presidency. Thank you, TokyoSand, and your diligent volunteers, for helping us get to know Mr. Delaney!

The Democrats have a big field of candidates running for President in 2020. Each of them brings their own unique strengths to the table in a bid to take our country in a very different direction than the one we’re on today.

But as we well know from 2016, the media (and especially social media) gets fixated on non-substantial issues that take up all the oxygen. Plus, they don’t give the candidates the same treatment or the same amount of airtime.

In order to help voters get to know the Democratic candidates, I’ve gathered quotes and information about what the candidates have said or done in regards to the 7 issues that midterm voters identified as the most important. I hope that these guides serve as a helpful starting point for you as you look into which candidates (or how many candidates!) you are interested in supporting…

    • It is overwhelming, but I think some of the unknowns and lesser-knowns like Delaney will be weeded out early, so I look for it to come down to about 6 or 7, then 4 or 5. The large field is concerning for a couple of reasons, the main one being that it will likely lead to in-fighting and disunity — something we cannot afford. Plus, it is almost certain to lead to more people NOT voting next November. Sigh.


  2. It’s wonderful that so many Democratic candidates have the desire to save our country from Trump. The more the merrier I say! Notice Joe Biden’s ratings skyrocket ever since he announced…..


  3. Meh, I don’t know. Something seems to be missing, perhaps ‘ limiting the availability of “certain high-powered, military-style assault weapons’ instead of an outright ban. No-one should carry these weapons except the armed forces.

    • He is such an unknown that I think his chances are slim-to-none, and quite honestly I’m not as impressed with him as I have been with some of the others. Notice they are all saying pretty much the same thing? It makes me wonder if they are telling us what they think we want to hear, rather than what they really believe. Just something to think about.
