  • Maybe Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan Is Thinking Of A Primary Run At Trump After All

    Just to clarify the headline a bit, he’s not suggesting that he’ll “run train” on Trump, which would be something very different and, frankly, just awkward. This story has been getting a lot of play in the past couple of weeks and it’s showing no signs of going away. Is Maryland Governor Larry Hogan weighing a primary challenge to Donald Trump in 2020? When the story first broke I wrote it off as “other people’s ideas” and not Hogans. There were plenty of reasons to believe that, starting with the fact that up until his recent inauguration for another...
  • Michael Cohen: rigging polls 'was at the direction of' Trump

    Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, said on Thursday he paid a firm to manipulate online polling data "at the direction of and for the sole benefit of" Trump. The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen had paid the data firm RedFinch Solutions to manipulate two public opinion polls in favor of Trump before the 2016 presidential campaign. "As for the @WSJ article on poll rigging," Cohen wrote on Twitter on Thursday, "what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump @POTUS. I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man...

    Californias newly instituted March 3 primary date is rattling the early presidential state map, as Democratic state and party officials grapple with the shadow cast by the nations most populous state. The idea that millions of absentee and mail-in votes could be cast in advance of Californias actual primary election day and the prospect that presidential candidates might bypass the early states entirely to concentrate on target-rich California is finally beginning to sink in.
  • Democrats to start presidential primary debates in June 2019

    Democrats will hold at least a dozen presidential primary debates starting in June 2019 and running through April 2020, with party Chairman Tom Perez promising rules that will give everyone in a potentially large field a fair shot at voters attention. Making public his first in a series of decisions over the 2020 debate calendar, Perez said Thursday that the national party will sponsor six debates in 2019 and six more in 2020. That could be extended if the nomination process drags deep into the spring. Exact dates, locations, media partners and qualifying thresholds will be announced in early 2019....
  • Deval Patrick knew when to call it quits on a presidential bid. Other politicians take note

    Running for president is hard. Deciding not to run? That can be even harder. Over the last year, two-term former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick has explored the possibility of running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, urged on by a small army of Patrick devotees in the Commonwealth. Inspiring and experienced, Patrick would have been a formidable candidate. He compiled real accomplishments as governor, putting his state at the forefront of life sciences globally and managing the fallout of the 2008 recession. Since leaving office, he has worked for Bain Capital investing in firms with social benefits. But on...
  • 2020: Avenatti Becomes The First Democrat To Be Beaten By Trump

    Well, it’s official. Trump has beaten his first Democratic opponent, and I use that term generously. Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has decided he’s not running for president in 2020. BASTA! Yeah, we’ve all had enough of this clown, even Democrats—who are probably secretly fuming that he inserted himself into the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation fight with a nut job who had a totally unbelievable and completely unsubstantiated story that the judge was part of a gang rape ring in high school. The two other women who had accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct also had similar shoddy stories that...

    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Justice Democrats want her victory over Rep. Joe Crowley to be the beginning of a movement rather than just a one-off upset. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday threw her weight behind a new national campaign to mount primaries against incumbent Democrats deemed to be ideologically and demographically out of step with their districts. The incoming star congresswoman from New York again put the Democratic establishment on notice that she and activist groups on the left arent content with a Democratic-controlled House: They are determined to move the party to the left. "Long story short, I need...

    The socialist insurgency against establishment Democrats in New York emerged triumphant as no less than 6 far left candidates defeated establishment Democrats in races for the state senate. New York Times: Years of anger at a group of Democratic state senators who had collaborated with Republicans boiled over on Thursday, as primary voters ousted nearly all of them in favor of challengers who had called them traitors and sham progressives. The losses were not only a resounding upset for the members of the Independent Democratic Conference, who outspent their challengers several times over, but also a sign that the...

    The double whammy is that Wyoming voting law allows people to register or change their party affiliation at the polling place on voting day and vote in whichever primary they choose. So RINOs are chosen in the Republican primary by Democrat voters pretending for a day to be Republicans. It makes a travesty of the two-party system and cheats Republicans of getting to select their own candidates. Their preferred candidate, Mark Gordon, beat the conservative frontrunner, Foster Friess, by approximately 6-9,000 votes (the official count isn't in yet), well within the margin provided by Democrat voters. Comparing this year's primary...

    ...On the Democratic side, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum's victory was the most unexpected of the night, as he defeated centrist former Rep. Gwen Graham. His victory represents an upset for the progressive wing of the party in the final stretch of 2018 primaries... ...Gillum hadn't led in a single poll, but was able to harness the progressive energy to beat Graham, a famed political scion in the state whose father had served as governor and senator. Sen. Bernie Sanders campaigned for Gillum and drew more than 1,000 people to a rally in Tampa earlier this month. Gillum campaigned on repealing...

    Dr. Kelli Ward had a campaign appearance in Yuma on Saturday night, the 25th of August, for the Republican primary for the Senate. Yuma was the last stop at the end of a whirlwind bus tour around the state. I was able to attend and ask Dr. Ward a question about gun issues beyond the usual "I support the Second Amendment" boilerplate. I arrived before 6 p.m. I ran into many of the local political activists. It was clear Dr. Ward was getting much more attention than she had in 2016. I had attended a similar rally in 2016,...

    The states of Florida & Arizona hold their primary elections next Tuesday, August 28, 2018. They are just about the end of the "primary election" cycle for this upcoming election in November. Normally, I urge all Republicans, Conservatives, Blue Dog Democrats, Independents, etc. to get their butts in gear, get up off the couch and go out and vote to support, defend and sustain, POTUS, Donald J. Trump, etc. I still urge that action. My family has already voted in Florida, either by absentee ballot or early voting. All twelve have cast their primary votes for Rick Scott (Senator), Ron...

    Election day for the mid-term primary is a week away. There are four contested state-wide offices: US Senate, Governor, Attorney General, and Commissioner of Agriculture. There is a lot of negative advertising out there and while some of the players are well known, others are not. So this is my attempt at bringing together any discussion on choosing the candidates to go up against their RAT opponents in the November General Election.

    On Tuesdays broadcast of MSNBCs All In, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that, despite winning the Democratic primary, he will run for re-election in 2018 as an Independent. Sanders said, I have always run as an Independent, and thats what I will do. And I think people in Vermont understand that. We have a very good relationship with the Democratic Party. I suspect that this coming campaign well be putting more money our campaign will be putting more money into the Vermont Democratic Party than anybody else and supporting a whole lot of good Democratic candidates.
