Starbucks braces itself as Howard Schultz mulls 2020 run, prepares for Democratic backlash

Starbucks executives have been monitoring various activist groups tied to the Democratic Party Opens a New Window.  as the company’s former CEO Howard Schultz Opens a New Window.  moves closer to an independent 2020 presidential run—a move that would likely spark protests and boycotts of the coffee maker, the FOX Business has learned.

Democratic activist groups have already put Starbucks on notice that if Schultz, a long-time liberal Democrat, does indeed run as an independent in 2020, the company could pay a stiff price with many consumers who believe his candidacy will siphon away voters from the Democratic nominee and help Trump win a second term.

Schultz hasn’t decided if he will enter the race, but now that he’s weeks away from any announcement, executives inside his old company are monitoring the social media accounts of activist groups that might lead a boycott, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter.

The left who normally loves Starbucks, but as of late have turned on them.

With Howard Schultz possibly running as Independent, Starbucks will be a target of leftist's rage.

I used to enjoy it, but the price point was a problem.   I've gotten used to brewing my own for so long I'm not likely to go back.

Just got 4 more 12-ounce bags of BRC delivered.  Still have to get into the SS blend that I have from the last shipment.  It’s great coffee.
