Democratic National Convention/AP

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

The Democratic National Convention may be virtual but it didn’t stop the field of 2020 primary contestants from having a nice family dinner. Even eight months ago it would’ve been hard to imagine Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Cory Booker all gathering to praise Democratic nominee Joe Biden. 

Democrats were hitting the Trump-is-a-bully-theme hard on the final night of the convention, and Sanders sumed it up by calling Biden “a human being who is empathetic, who is honest, who is decent, and at this particular moment in American history, my god, that is something that this country absolutely needs.” 

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
