    The principal newspaper in Orlando, Fla., where the president is set to kick off his reelection bid Tuesday, has already announced its 2020 White House endorsement: anyone but Donald Trump. “We’re here to announce our endorsement for president in 2020, or, at least, who we’re not endorsing: Donald Trump,” the editorial board of the Orlando Sentinel announced Tuesday, hours before Trump is set to appear in the city’s Amway Center to launch his campaign for a second term. “Some readers will wonder how we could possibly eliminate a candidate so far before an election, and before knowing the identity of...
  • 'One of the most important endorsements in America right now' (Cortez?)

    Politico ^ | 5/13/19 | HOLLY OTTERBEIN, ALEX THOMPSON
    The Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez primary is heating up. For the second time in five days, the star freshman congresswoman is appearing alongside Bernie Sanders at a high-profile event. Rep. Ro Khanna, co-chairman of Sanders' campaign, is talking with Ocasio-Cortez's staff about the primary. And Sanders' team told POLITICO that he and Ocasio-Cortez "have had phone calls.” Ocasio-Cortez's work on Sanders' 2016 campaign — and the fact that several staffers from that bid went on to work for her and the pro-Ocasio-Cortez group Justice Democrats — suggest the Vermont senator has the inside track for her coveted endorsement. But Sen. Elizabeth Warren...
  • Michael Jordan once turned down a huge endorsement deal because he didn't like the product's name

    "Do you think Michael Jordan really still eats McDonald's even though he is a millionaire?" is a question thousands of kids posed to each other in the 1990s. According to Jordan, the answer is "yes," and one story about a product he refused to endorse reveals just how important it was for MJ to maintain a genuine image as he rose to fame. In May 1992, Jordan did a lengthy interview with Playboy that was later reproduced at Longform. Mark Vancil asked Jordan about products he turned down, and His Airness revealed that he rejected one substantial offer because he...

    Joe Biden officially earned the endorsement of the firefighters union Monday, putting in his corner a powerful organizing force that stayed on the sidelines of the 2016 race. The executive board of the International Association of Firefighters met and voted to ratify its endorsement of the former vice president within hours of his formal entry into the race on Thursday. The union had warmly welcomed Biden to their annual Washington convention last month with signs of “Run, Joe, Run!” General President Harold Schaitberger made the endorsement official in an online video. “Joe’s a lot like our firefighters. He's a problem...

    Michael Avenatti, the former lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels who is facing a 36-count federal indictment, threw his support behind former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary. Mr. Avenatti on Thursday tweeted his “enthusiastic support” for Mr. Biden several hours after the former vice president formally announced his third bid for the presidency.

    Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) former campaign spokesperson said that it’s “possible” for Cruz to lose his reelection bid to Democrat Beto O’Rourke. Rick Tyler, who served as Cruz’s former communications director during his 2016 presidential run, appeared on MSNBC Sunday and admitted that Cruz could lose in the red state. “As the former Cruz strategist, it does seem as though the signs are that Ted Cruz might actually lose this race?” MSNBC host Kasie Hunt asked. Tyler said that even in a predominately Republican state, O’Rourke is posing a real challenge for the senator. “It’s possible

    President Trump on Wednesday threw his support behind GOP Rep. Martha McSally’s run for Senate in Arizona. Mr. Trump stayed on the sidelines during the hard-fought Republican primary in which Ms. McSally on Tuesday bested two opponents who were closely allied with the president. “Martha McSally is an extraordinary woman. She was a very talented fighter jet pilot and is now a highly respected member of Congress. She is Strong on Crime, the Border and our under siege 2nd Amendment. Loves our Military and our Vets. Has my total and complete Endorsement!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

    President Trump endorsed Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) on Monday ahead of the state's primaries. "Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona is doing a great job. It would be really nice to show your support tomorrow by voting for him in Tuesdays Primary," Trump tweeted. "Doug is strong on Crime, the Border, and our Second Amendment. Loves our Military & our Vets. He has my full and complete Endorsement." The endorsement came in a string of tweets, in which Trump doubled down on his support of Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), who's seeking the Florida governor's mansion, and Florida Gov. Rick Scott...

    The California Election 2018 primary has come and gone. It was real, and it was spectacular. Yes, I wrote that, as a beleaguered California conservative and Trump supporter. Election results worked out quite well in our favor and for the country as a whole. Was there a blue wave? Nope. More like a trickle, and the results portend a red resurgence of sorts. Perhaps a red wave will finally wash over the country and finish in the Pacific Ocean. For the past 8 years, from the Tea Party wave of 2010 to the present day, I watched with sad dismay...

    Hillary Clinton had a choice between endorsing incumbent Gov. Mario Cuomo (D-NY) or his upstart rival for the Democrat nomination, Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who would not only be the first woman governor of the Empire State, but the first gay governor. Hillary chose the old white guy. It was former Secretary of State Madeline Albright who famously said in support of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, “It’s not done, and you have to help. Hillary Clinton will always be there for you. And just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t...

    The California Democratic Party decided not to endorse in the U.S. Senate contest on Saturday, an embarrassing rebuke of veteran Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein, who has represented California in the Senate for a quarter-century, is facing an insurgent bid by a fellow Democrat, state Senate leader Kevin de León. He earned nearly 500 more votes than the senator, who was first elected in 1992. De León has cultivated relationships with the party’s delegates. He still faces a significant challenge in trying to topple Feinstein, who trounces De León in all public polling and fund-raising. The party also did not endorse...

    President Donald Trump called besieged Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore on Monday, to offer him his full support in Alabama. “Donald Trump called Roy Moore this morning,” revealed Moore’s campaign consultant Drew Messer on Twitter. “Great conversation. His parting words were ‘Go get them Roy.’ Thank you, POTUS, for supporting the Judge.”

    To no one’s surprise, President Donald Trump is apparently “furious” over his woefully misguided decision to go all-in for Luther Strange in Alabama’s U.S. Senate primary. It was a decision that blew spectacularly up in the president’s face last night with Strange’s massive 10-point loss to Roy Moore, an outsider much closer in spirit to Trumpism than establishment crony Strange. In what is becoming a disturbing pattern, Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner was apparently one of those who advised the president to back Strange, to once again sail into big, jagged rocks — a humiliation for Trump that anyone...

    During President Donald Trump’s rally to show support for RINO Mitch McConnell stooge, lifelong DC lobbyist and swamp creature Luther Strange, who the president endorsed, even though many of his supporters like Sebastian Gorka, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, and many others endorsed legendary Ten Commandments Judge Roy Moore, the president admitted that he may have made a “mistake’ with the endorsement. “I might have made a mistake,” President Trump told the Alabama crowd before the special election on September 26 to fill the seat vacated when former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions became attorney general. “I’ll be honest, I might have...

    In a piece called “Washington Post unwittingly destroys the ‘Sessions is a racist’ slander,” I reviewed the evidence set forth in an article that supports the slander and the evidence that undercuts it. The undercutting evidence is overwhelming. It includes, but is hardly limited to, the testimony of African-Americans, including several from Alabama, who have known and/or worked with Sessions over the years. Evidence on the other side of the ledger consisted primarily of the opinion of the widow of a civil rights leader Sessions once prosecuted for voter fraud. Evelyn Turner, 80 years-old and a stroke survivor, insists that...

    It took me a long time to write this. I had to dig deep into my being to come up with these words. I’m recanting my endorsement of Hillary Clinton for the presidency. I’m aware of how vindictive Clintonians can be. I’m not speaking about the Clintons themselves, but of those surrounding them. Perhaps the saying is true: dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres. Your staff, your donors, your surrogates, and those you surround yourself with are a reflection of who you truly are, no? If not, why not curb any unacceptable behavior? Silence, indifference, or inaction...

    I am back in the US and will be voting for Mr. Trump early next week in Maryland. My [half] brother Barack Obama is a big disappointment. Why did he not come home to Kogelo [the family village] on his visit to Kenya last year? Why did he not provide for the family when they came to see him in Nairobi? (They experienced extreme hardship and left immediately after the dinner). Why did he not support Auntie Zeituni [President Obama’s late half aunt, who lived for a decade as an illegal immigrant] in America? He claims to be advocate for...

    Donald Trump picked up his first major newspaper endorsement of the November election over the weekend when the Las Vegas Review-Journal became one of the few to back the Republican nominee. “These are turbulent times,” the newspaper, which is owned by Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, said in an editorial. “More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation. They clamor for an alternative to the incestuous and pernicious atmosphere dominating the capital. They see a vast array of lobbyists, elected officials and entrenched interests manipulating the levers of power for their own...

    Vogue Endorses Hillary Clinton Using A Photo From 1993 By Kelly Riddell - The Washington Times - Tuesday, October 18, 2016 ANALYSIS/OPINION: The media and elitist love for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, continues. It’s unhinged. Vogue Magazine made its first political endorsement on Tuesday backing Mrs. Clinton for president. The endorsement’s not surprising, given its editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, is a huge Clinton bundler. Ms. Wintour helped organize a multimillion dollar fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton in New York City just Monday night with celebrities Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris, Julia Roberts and others. What is surprising,...

    The 180 year old conservative newspaper mainly representing the right leaning Hancock county in Ohio has declined to no endorse either leading presidential candidates. Quoting from the article about why it will not endorse Trump: This year, however, The Courier cannot endorse the Republican Party’s candidate. Americans always put their country first, way ahead of their party, and we withhold an endorsement not to spite the party for selecting Donald J. Trump, but because its nominee has clearly proven to be unfit to be president of the United States of America. Also quoting from the article about why the news...
