Bannon: Harris-O'Rourke Ticket Gives Dems 'Best Shot'

Friday, 29 March 2019 12:23 PM

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said a Kamala Harris-Beto O’Rourke ticket would offer the Democrats the “best shot” in 2020, but predicted President Donald Trump would still win re-election.

Bannon made his comments during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Friday.

"I think the best they're going to have, and I don't think these people will defeat him, I think a combination of (Kamala) Harris for president and Beto O'Rourke for VP is a way to mobilize their base and give it the best shot," he said.

Bannon said Democrats could turn again to Hillary Clinton if no candidate has “broken out of the pack and looks as if they can take on Trump one-on-one” by this fall.

"People should not count her out," he said. "She's going to be sitting in the bullpen waiting for the call.

“So, this is going to be very, very tough. The Democrats want to remove Trump from office.”

Bannon pointed out Trump’s attacks on announced Democart hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

“She's probably got some of the most well-formed policy positions, particularly in comparison to some of the other candidates on the left," Bannon said. "He's basically blown her up already. She's in single digits, and I don't think she'll break out."
