    Word on the Quad — Who do you think should run against Trump in 2020?

    Laura Byrne, Major: Architecture

    Bernie and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz would be a very progressive ticket. It’s a white man but also a woman of color who’s young, so I feel like they balance each other out. I would really love to see that ticket.

    D’mani Thomas, Major: Undecided

    People have seen that a lot of the things Trump has promised can’t really be followed through with. I think whoever runs against him has to somehow prove that they can follow through with their promises.

    Simon Lee, Major: Undecided

    I wouldn’t mind voting for Bernie Sanders again if he came back. If we just put Obama back in office that would be cool too, even though I know that isn’t possible. Hillary Clinton wasn’t the best choice, but I’d still vote for her.

    Melly Fakalat, Major: Music

    That’s a heavy topic, there are a lot of candidates running. But I advocate for Bernie. I liked a lot of his stances on things, especially on job security and free college education.

    Amelinda Lew, Major: Biology

    I know that people have issues with Kamala Harris about her prosecutorial controversies, but I heard an interview about her reasons for doing it. I know it’s mostly politician speak but she kind of won me over.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
