Once viewed as a long shot, Kucinich's strong gun control positions gave him a boost after the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.

Warren will highlight Cordray's blueprint for fighting the opioid crisis, which includes protecting Medicaid expansion and boosting support for law enforcement and local treatment options.

She'll also tout Cordray's work as federal consumer chief taking on for-profit colleges and unscrupulous student lenders.
