Skip to comments.Five States Suspend Democratic Primaries Over Coronavirus, Sending Nomination Race Into Chaos
Posted on 03/22/2020 8:36:54 AM PDT by MagillaX
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has no intention of dropping out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, and as the July convention draws closer, his decision to keep his campaign alive may mean chaos for the Democratic party. Five more states have suspended their Democratic primaries amid concerns about coronavirus, and it may soon be impossible for any candidate to win a majority of delegates.
The New York Times reports that Indiana, Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Maryland have now joined Ohio in postponing their presidential contests, leaving the future of the Democratic presidential nomination uncertain. Ohio, of course, was supposed to vote last Tuesday, but suspended their primary contest just hours before people were to head to the polls, over concerns that voting sites were not prepared for large numbers of people who could spread the novel coronavirus.
Other states, like New York, where coronavirus numbers are high and growing, are looking at postponing or canceling their upcoming primaries, concerned that the virus will still be spreading weeks or even months from now. Puerto Rico, which is on lockdown, is due to hold its primary at the end of March and that will likely be postponed. Alaska, Hawaii, and Wyoming vote on April 4th, still within the Federal governments suggested quarantine period.
April 7th will see the true test: Wisconsin, a battleground state, highly coveted by Democrats who lost it narrowly to President Donald Trump in 2016, is scheduled to hold its primary then and Democrats want a vote turnout number so that they can have an idea of where the Wisconsin presidential contest is headed.
After that, no state will vote again until the end of April.

Enter Gov coumo of ny. LOL! Like it wasn’t going to be a fluster anyway. How many times/votes will it take to keep God out of their platform this time?
In Wisconsin, Milwaukee, as expected, has the highest number of coronavirus cases. I hope the democrats cancel their convention too.
Doesn’t matter....they’re candidates are all cr**. Don’t be surprised if Trump carries every state. It is a secret ballot.
just delayed. stop hyperventilating.
Hang in there, Bernie!
Old tv ad "Is it live or Memorex?"
Biden will be on enhanced digital ads looking 30 years younger and stronger than a body building champion. Witty, clever, well spoken and able to quote inspiring passages from great leaders of the past. But not having to show up in person where he will require a nurse and an assistant to get him through two or three lines of a talk to voters.
And will the Dem convention follow the rule at that time: No public assembly of more than 10 persons at one time? All ten vote for Biden. Yay!!
I dont think its chaos. Basically they are saying theyve chosen Biden.
“Elections suspended! Trump to become King Trump? America Recoils!”
“””””I dont think its chaos. Basically they are saying theyve chosen Biden.”””””””””””
Joe is the designated Bob Dole this time, a throwaway candidate.
Voter machine touch screens and levers spread Covid-19. ;)
They'll buy Bernie off, too, but he'll hold out for just more than a lake house this time.
So who does that leave? Hillary, IMO, is yesterday's drunken old lesbian and no one likes her.
Cuomo's name has popped up in the last 24 hours but who knows.
A brokered convention is probably a safe bet but other than that... Wheel of Fortune...
All the old players will be angling, but honestly the Clintons are just over, they just don't know it yet. Jarrett/0bama are still in the mix, (can you say Lurleen Wallace? Yes, I knew you could), other than that the Dems could go for a "Reformation" movement and nominate someone new, pleasant, good looking, with all the right appearances and just as crazy as any of the rest...
So place your bets, they're all long shots right now.
Bank this. The DNC is trying to figure a way to place Cuomo.
The delayed primary’s are an opportunity. It gives them room to figure it out. Are there still enough votes left to give it to Coumo legitimately?
Can you say, “Brokered Convention”?
Cuomo? Hillary? Moochelle?
“Bank this. The DNC is trying to figure a way to place Cuomo”
Biden still needs to win about 800 delegates and the delay doesn’t help him at all.
When Biden publicly wets his pants, the process will be blown open. Andy Cuomo is the leading candidate to snatch it, which will absolutely enrage the Bernie Bros and the Warren tribe. Their party will be torn to shreds.
So Hillary has until Mid April to ensure slow Joe becomes stopped cold Joe who might be coronavirus’ed and crazy bernie to be quarantined and withdraw (heart condition, you know). Only then can Xi cash the check from the DNC and ROSATOM.
