Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas) told CNN Sunday that he is pulling his endorsement of former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro and is giving it to former Vice President Joe Biden.

Beto vs. Buttigieg on gun control

2020 contender Pete Buttigieg told CNN on Sunday that Beto O'Rourke's remark of "Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15" plays into the hands of Republicans on gun control.

O'Rourke's Twitter response: "Leaving millions of weapons of war on the streets because Trump and McConnell are 'at least pretending to be open to reforms'? That calculation and fear is what got us here in the first place. Let’s have the courage to say what we believe and fight for it."
