Presidential / National
Warren: Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-CFPB) appears to be showing signs of life after being mowed down by
a small pox outbreak embellishing her ancestry for personal gain and then fumbling the response. It appears Warren’s relative increase in polling is driven by actually talking about policy and not going off the deep end completely like a certain Senator from a neighboring state (looking at Bernie).
Biden: Despite a failed attempt to paint former Vice President Joe Biden’s (D) touchy feely side as being perverted by sympathizers of Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist), Biden is off to a strong start since he announced his candidacy last week. This is for a guy whose last campaign where he was in charge ended with a 1% performance in Iowa 11 years ago.
More Biden: While former President Obama was asked to not endorse Biden, it appears that some of Obama’s operatives are busy building a “dark money” death star for Biden. Hopefully this works out better than Jeb! and his fleet of dark money death stars.
Beto: The Daily Beast has the knives out for former Representative Beto O’Rourke (D) by noting how his campaign is now flailing around. Apparently Beto’s loss of support (what little he had) is driven by the flight of women from his candidacy. Maybe once people did not have to compare Beto to Senator Ted Cruz (R-Calgary/Houston Zodiac Killer) they realized that Beto was as substantively devoid of as West Texas is of people.
Gillibrand: Roguemapper cannot wait! Fox News plans to host a Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-#MeToo) town hall next month. Will anyone watch?
Sanders: Politico has a nice look into the crazy world of then Mayor Bernie Sanders and his 1980s television show….
