President Donald Trump says he has a feeling about how the 2020 Democratic presidential primary will turn out. In a Tuesday evening tweet, he predicted that the Democratic nominee would be wither Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders or former Vice President Joe Biden. He claimed that the two would "run against maybe the best Economy in the history of our Country (and MANY other great things)! I look forward to facing whoever it may be."

Kevin Horkin, former Mayor of Clitheroe and Conservative candidate for Ribble Valley Borough Council's Primrose ward, has warned the electorate that the Liberal Democrats have only put up 16 candidates in the borough council elections because ''they clearly accept that they cannot win control of the council without forming a coalition with Labour''. Mr Horkin said: "Political experience teaches us that the only way a political party can direct the policies of a local authority is to win the majority of seats, which in the Ribble Valley is 21 out of 40. This enables the council to set the Council Tax, direct housing, planning and infrastructure policy. The majority also decide on spending in projects like town centre improvements, Primrose Lodge and Roefield Sports facilities on which the Conservatives have led for the last four years as the majority group. ‘’The Liberals have entered the election starting with the message - we cannot win, control, so … [Read more...] about Clitheroe Conservative candidate accuses Liberal Democrats of planning a Labour coalition
