    Billionaire presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg spent more than $463 million in the first two months of his campaign, a report filed to the Federal Election Commission reveals. The former New York Mayor poured $220 million of his own money into his campaign in January alone, including $126.5 million on TV ads and $45.5 million on online advertising. Bloomberg pledged at the start of his Democratic campaign bid to only use his own cash and take no outside donations, which he has stuck to. The new campaign disclosure shows that Bloomberg's campaign spent on average around $7 million per day in...
  • Harry Reid says Sanders needs more than plurality to win Democratic nomination

    Washington Post ^ | February 20, 2020 | Paul Kane
    Former Senate majority leader Harry M. Reid said Thursday that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or any presidential candidate should not get the Democratic nomination if they end the primary process in first place but are shy of the requisite majority of delegates. Reid (D-Nev.) dismissed suggestions from Sanders and his supporters that he should become the nominee if he finishes with a plurality lead ahead of the rest of the candidates but short of the 1,991 delegates needed to secure the nomination outright. Reid even suggested that a group of moderate candidates, trailing Sanders overall, could assemble a coalition ahead...

    Super Tuesday is almost here. And if you’re a registered voter in Virginia, that means you get to weigh in on a crowded field of Democratic candidates running to challenge President Donald Trump. A total of 124 delegates are up for grabs — 99 of them pledged delegates, allocated based on the results of the primary.
  • 'I wish everyone was as perfect as you': Hostility between Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg boils over as she REFUSES to shake his hand after they repeatedly clash in Democratic debate

    The feud between Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg boiled over in Wednesday's Democratic debate as the two moderate midwesterners attacked each other's qualifications and ended the evening with Klobuchar refusing to shake his hand. The two president candidates exchanged a series of sharp back-and-forths during the two hour debate that accumulated in Klobuchar deliberately giving Buttigieg a wide berth when the event ended, walking around him to exit the stage in such a way she would not interact with him. That also meant she didn't have to participate in the handshake candidates traditionally share when the night is over. Buttigieg...
  • Mike Bloomberg shrugs off beatdown in Las Vegas debate as his campaign says billionaire is 'just warming up' and pundits warn he could be out by Super Tuesday after rivals rain down blows on his record on sexism and race

    Michael Bloomberg shrugged off his ghastly debate performance with his campaign vowing he's just 'warming up' after the former mayor was universally panned for his stage debut. 'You know you are a winner when you are drawing attacks from all the candidates. Everyone came to destroy Mike tonight. It didn’t happen,' Bloomberg's campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said in a statement after the debate. 'He was just warming up tonight,' Sheekey added. The general consensus was Bloomberg bombed in Wednesday night's debate, his first time appearing with his rivals for the Democratic nomination.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads the Democratic primary field in California by 18 points, according to a survey released Wednesday. In the poll from the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) first reported by the Los Angeles Times, Sanders has the support of 32 percent of likely voters. Joe Biden registered support from 14 percent of poll respondents, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) trailed the former vice president by 1 percentage point in the survey. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg (D) were tied at 12 percent each.

    First Amy Klobuchar had to acknowledge in a recent interview that she couldn’t name the president of Mexico. Then, speaking at a Black History Month event in Las Vegas, she met a crowd full of people who had difficulty naming her. Pete Buttigieg has difficulties, too. His speech at a Nevada Black Legislative Caucus brunch over the weekend competed with the din of a buffet line — and whole tables of people who rarely looked up.

    Bernie Sanders rallied thousands of supporters in Washington state three weeks ahead of its presidential primary, calling for the grassroots movement that led to his win in the state’s 2016 caucuses to continue through the broader primary that takes place March 10. “We may not have billions of dollars to throw around, but we have hundreds of thousands of people in every state in this country knocking on doors,” he said. “And that’s why we’re going to win here in Washington and why we’re going to win all over this country.”

    An open Letter to Donald Trump, President of the United States Dear Mr. President, I often think of how much my father, Melville “Bud” Hynde, who proudly served his country as a Marine on Guadalcanal, would have enjoyed your Presidency. The other day when you gave that award to Rush Limbaugh, my father would have been so delighted. He loved listening to Rush, which is why I allowed my song, 'My City Was Gone', to be used on his radio show. My father and I didn't always see eye-to-eye. We argued a lot, but isn’t that the American way? The...
  • ‘A complete disaster’: Fears grow over potential Nevada caucus malfunction: Volunteers complain of poor training for a vote-reporting system that was adopted on the fly.

    Anxiety is rising over the possibility of another tech-induced meltdown at the Nevada Democratic caucuses on Saturday. In interviews, three caucus volunteers described serious concerns about rushed preparations for the Feb. 22 election, including insufficient training for a newly-adopted electronic vote-tally system and confusing instructions on how to administer the caucuses. There are also unanswered questions about the security of Internet connections at some 2,000 precinct sites that will transmit results to a central “war room” set up by the Nevada Democratic Party.

    It’s still early, but two leading Democrats rolled out the heavy artillery today against Michael Bloomberg — usually reserved for Republicans. Both Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and primary competitor Elizabeth Warren accused Bloomberg of racism over two separate issues springboarded off of some eeeenteresting oppo-research eruptions.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | February 11, 2020 | William A. Jacobson
    Elizabeth Warren did poorly in Iowa, despite laying claim to having built the earliest, largest, and most sophisticated field operation. The caucus vote-counting confusion provided cover for Warren to escape relatively unscathed. But the New Hampshire results are in, and Warren got clobbered in her neighboring state, despite mostly favorable coverage nationally and her home Boston market. She lost to Bernie, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. Now Warren can’t hide. The massive campaign machine Warren built, reportedly with over 1000 campaign employees, could not overcome the most fundamental problem Warren’s campaign faced: Warren’s public persona of being a fake. Americans...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren has built her presidential campaign around the contention that she has a plan for everything—but her plan for winning the Democratic nomination after a disappointing fourth-place finish in New Hampshire is far from clear. Following her loss on Tuesday evening in what was essentially a home game for the Massachusetts senator, and as she continues to trail the frontrunners in South Carolina polling, plugged-in primary watchers told The Daily Beast that Warren has one last card to play: the caucus state of Nevada.

    Unless something unforeseen happens -- which it still could, because that's what "unforeseen" means -- Elizabeth Warren isn't going to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. This is bad news for fans of comedy, but good news for everybody else. Even a cuck RINO traitor like me, who has given up caring about anything and is only in this to watch the chaos, wouldn't prefer that walking disaster. Warren is basically a more ambulatory, less trustworthy Hillary Clinton. But Fauxcahontas still has her fans. According to her, at least. And they're selflessly devoted to her, if you believe...

    Behind Joe Biden's brave-faced campaign, advisers are 'scared' after the former vice president performed so poorly in the first caucus and primary of Iowa and New Hampshire, coming in fourth and fifth place respectively. 'This is horrendous. We're all scared,' a Biden adviser to Politico, speaking anonymously since the comments conflict with the face the campaign is broadcasting. 'I think we're going to make it to South Carolina. I know we're supposed to say we're going to and we're going to win. But I just don't know,' the adviser admitted. Biden fled New Hampshire before the polls even closed at...

At the time he made the announcement he had less than 1 percent of the vote in New Hampshire, after pinning his campaign's hopes on the northeastern state.

    Pete Buttigieg slammed President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Mike Bloomberg on Tuesday as he waited for results from New Hampshire's primary. The former mayor of South Bend spent the morning dropping off donuts at polling places and doing TV interviews. He told NBC's 'Today Show' that President Trump can't 'figure out what to do with me.' 'I don’t think he can figure out what to do with me, and that’s fine by me. I’m not that focused on this president’s approach because they always do the same thing. He’s going to find a vulnerability, and if he can’t, he’ll...

    President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence left their rally in New Hampshire and attended the dignified transfer of Sgt. 1st Class Javier Gutierrez and Sgt. 1st Class Antonio Rodriguez, who were killed in Afghanistan while conducting combat operations on February 8, at Dover Air Force Base. Gutierrez, 28, of San Antonio, Texas and Rodriguez, 28, of Las Cruces, New Mexico, died on February 8 as they engaged a gunman in an Afghan Army uniform. Fox News reports six others were wounded during the attack. Gutierrez and Rodriguez were assigned to 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne). Both men...
