    The Democratic Partys veepstakes may have narrowed down to two top contenders. Out of all the potential running mates thought to be on Joe Bidens shortlist, only two California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren spoke at the Texas Democratic Partys state convention, which ended Saturday. These things dont happen by accident, Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Post. I think those two are getting an audition in Texas.
  • VIDEO: When Will Jacobin Left Demand Biden Removal from Democrat Ticket?

    VIDEO Just as the Jacobins of the French Revolution ended up eating their own including Danton and Robespierre, we are now seeing the Jacobin Left in America doing the same. The latest example was when the the squishy liberal mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, was just denounced and booed because he would not agree to defunding the police department which, of course, would mean its abolition. So the question has to be asked, how long before the Jacobin Left demand the removal of the author of the 1994 crime bill, Joe Biden, from the Democrat ticket? If Frey is...

    The Washington Post's glowing profile of Stacey Abrams last week is just the latest effort of legacy media lionizing failed Democratic candidates. The Washington Post ran a glowing profile of failed Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams Thursday that better fits a paid campaign advertisement than a close and critical look at a potential vice president. In the Posts cheerleading piece aptly headlined, The Power of Stacey Abrams, the legacy outlet paints a gallant portrait of a woman who has never won a statewide election as a progressive superhero ready to heed her own calls to serve in the nations...

    Though the change is small, it could be an indication that many believe Warren would not positively contribute to winning swing voters, said Alex Donohue, analysts for U.S. Bookies. Its also worth noting that choosing other top candidates, such as [Senators] Kamala Harris or Amy Klobuchar, would not have this negative effect on Bidens chances, and his odds would remain 13/10.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday endorsed Joe Biden for president, more than a month after ending her own presidential bid. "In this moment of crisis, its more important than ever that the next president restores Americans faith in good, effective governmentand Ive seen Joe Biden help our nation rebuild. Today, Im proud to endorse," she tweeted, along with a video. The Massachusetts senator had withheld an endorsement ever since ending her campaign in early March, even as the race narrowed to essentially a contest between Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. But with Sanders dropping out last week, Biden became the...
  • The 11 most logical picks for Joe Bidens vice president, ranked (no men required)

    04/10/2020 2:14:02 PM PDT · by Libloather · 67 replies
    Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, after Bernie Sanders suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. The next big question in the race - beyond when and how Biden will be formally nominated amid a pandemic, of course - is who is going to fill out the ticket as Bidens vice presidential running mate. The pick carries unusual importance, especially given Biden, who will turn 78 shortly after Election Day, would be the oldest president ever elected by far. We already know one thing about that pick: It will be a woman, as Biden pledged in a recent...

    Joe Bidens campaign is looking to expand its fundraising operation as it prepares to take on President Donald Trump in the general election. Officials within Bidens organization have discussed bringing in a new group of regional fundraising advisors, including former aides to Sen. Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigiegs campaigns, who could help them expand their donor network, according to people familiar with the matter. These people declined to be named because the talks were private. Biden had a strong March, raising more than $30 million in online donations, as the coronavirus has pushed his campaign into a fully online platform,...

    When Pete Buttigieg dropped out the Democratic primary on Sunday, he didn't immediately make any endorsement.While being interviewed on KHOU 11 News in Houston, Texas, on Monday, Biden revealed he'd discussed giving Buttigieg a position in his administration. "I did speak to Pete Buttigieg a couple of days ago to encouraged him to stay engaged because he has enormous talent and I indicated to him that if I became the nominee I'd be coming to ask him to be a part of an administration to be engaged in moving things forward," Biden said. Just finished 1 on 1 interview...

    There may be plenty of second chances in life, but there are very few when it comes to voting a bitter pill to swallow for those Californians who voted for any of the presidential candidates who dropped out before Tuesdays statewide election. The sudden exit from the race Sunday by Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Ind., sparked some brief interest on social media about the rules governing a possible revote. No doubt similar questions were raised by those who cast early absentee ballots for Tom Steyer, the billionaire climate change activist who left the race Saturday. The...

    Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the 2020 presidential primary race, a senior campaign aide told CNBC. He is flying to South Bend, Indiana to make the announcement, where he served as mayor for two terms. The Indiana Democrat waged an unlikely campaign that saw a little-known mayor overpower governors and U.S. senators in the race for the party nomination. Along the way, Buttigieg assembled a substantial war chest and a vast national operation. A two-term mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg was the first openly gay major presidential contender. He scored a narrow delegate edge over Sen. Bernie Sanders...

    Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the Democratic presidential race, two aides confirmed to NBC News on Sunday, ending a campaign that enjoyed a meteoric rise and outshone more experienced competitors but ultimately fell short after being dogged by a lack of minority support. The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was supposed to travel to Texas but will instead return to Indiana, where he planned to make an announcement later Sunday night. It isn't clear who Buttigieg's supporters will now back or whether he will endorse one of the remaining candidates. Representatives of both the Buttigieg and Biden campaigns...

    Plains, Georgia - Former President Jimmy Carter suggested Pete Buttigieg's campaign is searching for answers after a disappointing fourth-place finish in Saturday's South Carolina primary, the first test of candidates' support in a state with predominantly African-American voters. Buttigieg and his husband Chasten paid a visit to Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter on Sunday morning, joining them for breakfast here in Georgia, which holds its Democratic primary on March 24. Carter told reporters at Buffalo Cafe in Plains that he is fond of Buttigieg, mentioning their work on a Habitat for Humanity project in South Bend, Indiana, where...

    Pete Buttigieg is Barack Obama's Mini Me, or, as one Twitter user put it, "Fauxbama." Buttigieg's speech cadence, his shirt sleeves and even the knot of his tie are the same as President Obama's. And now a political Twitter account called "The Recount" has found that former Mayor Buttigieg'swordsare exactly the same as Obama's. For years Barack Obama reused and recycled Deval Patrick's old "no red America, no blue America, just the United States of America" speech written by their mutual political spirit animal David Axelrod. Obama, ahem,borrowedElizabeth Warren's "you didn't build that" trope to denigrate initiatives by business owners...
