Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said Thursday that Portland police would be working with other city and county agencies to clear Lownsdale Park “at the request of (Oregon State Police) as part of the plan for federal officers to leave our community.

While Wheeler repeatedly demanded federal officers leave the city and even got tear gassed while joining demonstrations one night, he remains extremely unpopular among protesters, many of whom are calling for Wheeler's resignation.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who may be the strongest candidate overall. Not only is she a fighter, she also wins battles, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau being the most prominent example.
