WASHINGTON (AP) - Grappling with the realities of President Donald Trump's reign, Democrats are trying to offer a counterweight to the president's message.
An annual conference organized by a prominent Democratic think tank is offering an early glimpse at some of the Democrats plotting a challenge to Trump in 2020.
But it's also showing some of the challenges of opposing a president whose presence has been all-consuming and of coming up with an agenda to reach voters who turned to Trump in 2016.
The speaker line-up includes appearances by potential 2020 candidates, including Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Also speaking: former Housing Secretary Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
