  • Oh My: Why Did Virginia Dems Eliminate Their Black Lt. Governor Nominee From Campaign Mailers?

    **SNIP** One Virginia political observer I spoke with earlier said this innocent explanation could well be accurate, but other theories abound, such as speculation that the Democrats deliberately excluded a black man from certain mailers in order to target voters in various regions of the state. I'm not sure I buy that -- especially since the altered flyers were distributed in moderate Northern Virginia -- but like Erickson, I am quite confident that the outrage brigades would be in full throat if Ed Gillespie's campaign had done something similar. Speaking of Gillespie, here's the second intriguing nugget out of that...
  • The Obsession With White Voters Could Cost Democrats the Virginia Governor’s Race

    The Nation ^ | October 23, 2017 | By Steve Phillips
    One simple statistic highlights the folly of much of the Democratic Party’s strategy and spending. If every person of color who voted for Hillary Clinton in Virginia last year turns out to vote in Virginia’s gubernatorial contest on November 7, Democrat Ralph Northam could win without getting a single vote from a white person. Not one. And yet most Democratic strategists and donors overlook and undervalue voters of color in general and African-American voters in particular. As a result, Democrats are at real risk of losing eminently winnable contests in Virginia this year, as well as in myriad races in...

    One of the most devastating political earthquakes in modern American history took place between 10PM and Midnight in the inner rooms of the Clinton campaign in their VIP suite on the top floor of the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan. The day started auspiciously enough, with RealClearPolitics continuing to show Hillary Clinton in the lead, just as she had led the polling average for the past 98 days. RCP predicted that Hillary Clinton would win 297 electoral votes to Trump’s 241, comfortably surpassing the 270 needed for victory. This prediction was mirrored by polling “guru” Nate Silver’s vaunted 538 website, which...

    RICHMOND — Former president Barack Obama took the unusual step of criticizing and mocking Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate for a controversial ad blitz highlighting Latino gang violence. As he rallied for the Democratic candidate Ralph Northam on Thursday night, Obama mentioned that he and his wife, Michelle Obama, have seen Republican Ed Gillespie’s commercials airing on television in their D.C. home. The spots say Northam is “weak on MS-13” as images of tattooed Latino men and the gang motto “Kill, Rape, Control” pop up on the screen.

  • Hillary Clinton uses obscenity on TV describing reaction to Trump's inaugural speech

    Hillary Clinton joked on Friday about how she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, tried to ditch President Trump’s inauguration ceremony -- and she even let out a curse word while describing how a different president described Trump's speech. “And it was reported that George W. Bush, as it ends, says, ‘That was some weird s—t,’” she said on BBC’s “Graham Norton Show” with a laugh, to which host Graham Norton replied, “And it was.” Clinton said she had called more than one previous president to see if they were attending the inauguration. “I really tried to get out...

    Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm behind the uncorroborated Trump dossier, filed a last-minute request with a federal judge in Washington, D.C. on Friday seeking to prevent the release of its bank records to the House Intelligence Committee. Fusion, which is based in Washington, D.C., filed a motion asking U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan to approve an injunction preventing its bank, TD Bank, from having to turn over two years’ worth of banking records to the House committee. Republicans on the committee are looking for answers on several aspects on the dossier, including who paid Fusion GPS to commission...

    This morning President Donald J. Trump tweeted:He’s referring to yesterday’s news that, as CNN headlined its story on the matter, “Fusion GPS partners plead Fifth before House Intel.”Fusion GPS is the firm that paid for and disseminated the discredited dossier that former FBI director James Comey briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump about in January. The almost immediate and well-sourced leak of that briefing to CNN is what got the Russia scare really going in January. BuzzFeed published the dossier very soon after CNN’s story ran.So, as Trump and CNN note, folks at the firm took the Fifth in a...

    If Democrats can’t deliver a win in Virginia’s gubernatorial election 19 days hence, they should shut down and reopen as a haunted house. “See the spine-tinglingly campaign finance reports!!! Hear the bloodcurdling voicemails from Debbie Wasserman Schultz!!! Smell the horror of a goat cheese and red-pepper hummus sandwich one of the interns left downstairs!!!” Republicans have done well in recent cycles in gubernatorial races in Democrat-leaning states. Massachusetts, Maryland, Illinois, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey and Wisconsin are all presently governed by Republicans. So it wouldn’t be all together shocking for a state that had a strong Republican lead until...
  • Still bruised from Clinton loss, left takes aim at Electoral College in court

    A liberal-led push to overhaul the Electoral College could be moving from the op-ed pages to the courtroom, as a Harvard professor who flirted with a dark-horse Democratic presidential bid last year vows litigation to change the system. Criticism of the Electoral College was resurgent in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss. Clinton recently said she wants the system "eliminated." The latest effort isn’t aimed at dismantling the structure entirely – but rather, the winner-take-all system used by 48 states in awarding electors, which ends up focusing presidential races on a handful of battlegrounds. “With a winner-take-all, most of...

    Hillary Clinton’s former campaign lawyer is meddling in Nevada politics. Worse, he’s saying that voting in a special election would be an “undue burden” on minorities. Imagine the outrage if a Republican argued that voting is a “burden” on minorities. The lawsuit shows just how desperate Democrats are to stop recall efforts against Sens. Joyce Woodhouse, D-Henderson, Nicole Cannizzaro, D-Las Vegas, and Patricia Farley, I-Las Vegas. Marc Elias, general counsel for Hillary for America, filed the complaint Monday in federal court.

    **SNIP** "I think there a lot more connections that have yet to come to light," Clinton told a London audience. Clinton added that if she had been elected, she "would have called for an independent commission to get to the bottom of it." "We had really well-respected security, intelligence veterans saying this was a ‘cyber 9/11' in the sense it was a direct attack on our institutions," Clinton said, according to BuzzFeed. "That may sound dramatic, but we know that they probed and tried to intrude into election systems, not just the social media propaganda part of their campaign."

    In a year where coverage of President Trump has generated TV ratings, limitless controversy, and the world’s scrutiny, the November 7th Virginia governor’s race between former Republican National Committee Chair Ed Gillespie and Democratic Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam has been gasping for attention. That may change this week as both campaigns pull out some heavy hitters. President George W. Bush is attending two Gillespie fundraisers on Monday. President Obama is campaigning for Northam on Thursday. That, following weekend appearances by Vice President Mike Pence at a Gillespie rally and former Vice President Joe Biden at an Northam event.

    Sebastian Kurz's election victory last night has sent shockwaves through Europe as it appears he may seek a coalition with the country's anti-immigration Freedom Party. The Eurosceptic leader of Austria's right-leaning People's Party has declared victory in a national election that puts him on track to become the world's youngest leader. Kurz, 31, fell well short of a majority and may be looking to strike a deal with another party. The Freedom Party (FPO) got around 26 percent of votes in Sunday's parliamentary vote, boosted by a European migration crisis in 2015 that affected Austria and also led Kurz to...
