    Two of California's best-known Democrats are slipping in the polls as the calendar advances closer to Election Day. In fact, both Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein have only single-digit leads over their opponents, the results show. In the race for governor, a Probolsky Research poll, conducted between Aug. 29-Sept. 2, shows Newsom leading Republican businessman John Cox by a mere 5 points, with 17 percent of respondents undecided, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Feinstein faces similar problems, with the poll showing her with only an 8-point advantage over progressive challenger Kevin de León. A quarter of...

    When President Obama embraced “Medicare for All” earlier this month, it was a remarkable moment. Not because the proposal will be adopted (it won’t) or because the price tag would bankrupt the nation (it would). Rather, it was a remarkable moment because a former American president played the role of enabler for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). Indeed, Obama’s endorsement was a moment of great celebration for an organization that for years has plotted to hijack the Democratic Party and use it as a parasitic host to remake the nation. Here’s how. Back in 2012, the Vice Chairman of...

    Division: Much in the way the Republican Party was splintered by the Tea Party faction in 2010, the Democratic Party is now undergoing its own internal convulsion: Socialists are winning enough elections to shake party leadership. Another Democratic Socialist candidate won a tough primary race in New York City this week against an 11-term state senator.

    At first, Safiya Wazir couldn’t believe what she was hearing. A second later, it sunk in – after a long day on her feet, Wazir, a pregnant 27-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, defeated lifelong Heights resident and four-term District 17 state incumbent Rep. Dick Patten, overcoming an opponent who said her lack of experience and status as a refugee would hurt her campaign. Instead, Wazir said those very things – as well as her drive to connect with voters through doorknocking, thank-you notes and election reminders – buoyed her campaign. “They were very excited there was someone new running for the...

    Stunning news out of the Massachusetts primary this evening, where 10-term incumbent House member Michael Capuano has been defeated for re-election by Boston City Council member Ayanna Pressley. CBS News notes the obvious comparison to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez: Boston City Council member Ayanna Pressley has unseated 10-term incumbent Rep. Michael Capuano, in a surprise upset in the Massachusetts Democratic primary Tuesday. Pressley, the first African-American woman elected to the Boston City Council in 2009 was considered by many to be an outsider candidate, drawing comparisons to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the young democratic socialist who shocked the Democratic establishment by defeating New York...

    Ayanna Pressley defeated 20-year incumbent U.S. Rep. Michael E. Capuano last night in a historic upset victory over the Democratic establishment, slamming President Trump and even her own party’s status quo. “It seems like change is on the way,” Pressley said. “I am humbled to be standing before you tonight, victorious. Ours was truly a people power, grassroots campaign, launched just 195 days ago that dared to do what Massachusetts Democrats aren’t supposed to do.” Pressley, 44, will become the first black congresswoman from Massachusetts. She is not facing a Republican opponent in November. In her victory speech, she attacked...

    WASHINGTON — Setting up an explosive general election battle, a Donald Trump-backed Republican and a Bernie Sanders-endorsed insurgent Democrat who prevailed in an upset will face off in the Florida governor race following primaries Tuesday night, NBC News projects. In a surprise win, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, a black progressive who never led in a major poll, edged out former Rep. Gwen Graham, the politically moderate daughter of popular former governor and senator Bob Graham, in the Democratic primary. Gillum had 34.2 percent, or 510,450 votes, to Graham's 31.4 percent, or 468,448 votes, with 96 percent of precincts reporting. For...

    ...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...

    She’s not even in Congress yet, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Party’s rising star and unapologetic socialist, endorsed a slate of candidates in last night’s primaries. While all eyes were on Ohio’s 12th congressional district, Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, and Washington also had primaries. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Cori Bush running in Missouri’s first congressional district and Abdul El-Sayed and Fayrouz Saad in Michigan. El-Sayed and Saad were running for governor and Congress respectively; Saad was running in the Mitten State’s 11th congressional district.  We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country. From @KanielaIng & @SaadforCongress...

    WASHINGTON -- A former Michigan state legislator is poised to become the first Muslim woman elected to Congress after emerging on top of a crowded Democratic primary Tuesday night to fill the seat vacated by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). Conyers, the sixth-longest serving member of Congress given his election in 1965, resigned in December due to sexual harassment and his use of taxpayer money to settle a harassment claim. His western Detroit district is all but a lock for Dems, as Republicans didn't put forth a candidate. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American and socialist Dem in the mold of Sen. Bernie...

    If Democratic Socialists are "the future" of the Democratic party, they had better get used to losing – a lot. Every single candidate endorsed by celebrity Democratic Socialist politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was beaten by establishment Democrats in yesterday's primaries.  And not just beaten – they were, in most cases, slaughtered. The blood on the floor in Democratic precincts across the Midwest is Democratic Socialist blood.  American Mirror: Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan's 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri's 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate...

    Too bad, so sad, NOT! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf. The socialist pulled off a stunning victory last month in New York, and is now attempting to parlay that win into helping other leftists win Democratic primaries.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — If Sen. Bernie Sanders is leading a leftist political revolt, then a summit here of moderate Democrats might be the start of a counterrevolution. While the energy and momentum is with progressives these days — the victory of rising star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, buzz about Democratic Socialism and the spread of the "Abolish ICE!" movement are a few recent examples — moderates are warning that ignoring them will lead the party to disaster in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential contest. That anxiety has largely been kept to a whisper among the party's moderates...
  • In rebuke of Dianne Feinstein, Kevin de León wins endorsement of California Democrats in Senate race

    LAtimes ^ | July 14, 2018
    California Democratic Party leaders took a step to the left Saturday night, endorsing liberal state lawmaker Kevin de León for Senate in a stinging rebuke of Democratic icon Sen. Dianne Feinstein. De León’s victory reflected the increasing strength of the state party’s liberal activist core, which was energized by the election of Republican President Trump. The endorsement was an embarrassment for Feinstein, who is running for a fifth full term, and indicates that Democratic activists in California have soured on her reputation for pragmatism and deference to bipartisanship as Trump and a Republican-led Congress are attacking Democratic priorities on immigration,...

    Four male write-in candidates who emerged after state Senator Stanley Rosenberg resigned last month are being called sexist for running against a woman who is the only candidate appearing on the Democratic primary ballot. Rosenberg resigned May 4, after the deadline for getting on the ballot had passed. But five write-in candidates have emerged, and four of them are men. One left-wing observer says white men shouldn’t be challenging activist Chelsea Kline, who challenged Rosenberg in the Democratic primary before the filing deadline and is therefore now the only candidate on the ballot. “If you are committed to this progressive...

    Interesting tidbit via the NY times revealing that Democrat, Congressman, Joe Crowley's internal polling revealed the he was up 36 points over his challenger, Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Of course we all know the fifteen point "political slaughter" that befell the stunned, Joe Crowley, last Tuesday evening, in the 14thNYCD. One of Democrat, Nancy Pelosi's, favorites, Joe Crowley, received a most crushing blow in his defeat handed him by Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I tried to search the internet for pre-primary election polls, but came up empty, even on "Real Clear Politics" site. It appears the Fake News" pollsters scrubbed their numbers...

    The big primary win by “democratic socialist” (i.e., dangerous kook) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may have you wondering if there is any limit to the extremism of those voters who have not walked away from the radicalized Democratic Party. Happily, there may be. At least the shudder-inducingly grotesque Bradley Manning didn’t win: Democratic Senator Ben Cardin took the Maryland primary this week with more than 80 percent of the party’s votes, winning in a landslide over challenger and convicted leaker Chelsea Manning. “Chelsea,” as Bradley now calls himself, committed ~750,000 acts of treason in the largest intelligence leak in US history.
