Rep. John Delaney throws his hairpiece into the ring for 2020

Before you know it, 2020 will be here and the next presidential election will take place. The third richest congressman ($91.68 million), John Delaney (D-Md.) has already thrown his hat into the ring to run against Donald Trump.

"I'm running for president," he tweeted Friday.

In a Washington Post opinion piece he cited the Democratic Party's "recent electoral failures" calling for a "different approach--one that's focused on the facts and the future."

He considered running against Maryland's popular Republican Governor Larry Hogan, but he probably figured he's lose so he might as well lose in 2020 to Trump.

The 54-year-old Delaney has a very typical Democratic voting record.

He voted against Kate's Law, sparked by Kathryn Steinle, a 32-year-old who was shot  and killed by an illegal immigrant, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on July 1, 2015. 

The bill specifies that any undocumented immigrant who was deported from the U.S. and attempts to re-enter shall be subject to a fine and not more than 2 years imprisonment. If the illegal immigrant has been deported on multiple occasions and attempts to re-enter they will be subject to a fine and not more than 19 years imprisonment. Furthermore, there are to be increases in the criminal penalty for previously deported illegal immigrants to re-enter the U.S. and have a criminal history.

He voted against the Thin Blue Line Act, which authorizes the death penalty in the case of murder or attempted murder of a police officer, correctional officer, firefighter, or other first responder if the crime occurred while the person was engaged in official duties; because of those official duties; or because of such individual's status as a public official or employee.

He voted against Make America Secure Appropriations Act. The bill appropriates $789 billion for the Department of Defense for fiscal year ending on September 30, 2018.

He voted against No Sanctuary for Criminals Act

This bill prohibits federal funds for a minimum of one year to any state not in compliance with the provisions of the Act, and authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to withhold the transfer of any undocumented immigrant in the custody of the DHS to any state or political subdivision found not to be in compliance. It also authorizes law enforcement officials to detain an individual in violation of any criminal or motor vehicle law in order for the Secretary to issue a detainer regarding the individual if there is probable cause to believe that the individual is an undocumented immigrant.

He voted against the Honest and Open New EPA Science Treatment Act of 2017.

Prohibits the EPA Administrator from proposing or disseminating any covered action unless all scientific and technical information used is: a) the best available science; b) specifically identified; and c) publicly available online and accessible for independent analysis and substantial reproduction of the research results. Yes, it's called replication.

It also requires any personally identifiable information, trade secrets, and communication or financial information obtained from an individual and classified as privileged or confidential to be redacted prior to public availability. No more anonymous input or input that cannot be verified.

So Delaney is much an obstructionist as the rest of the lefties doing all they can to stop the business of Trump's administration. There are no surprises with Delaney. 

He's anti-gun, anti-border security and totally anti-Trump.
