Bloomberg Bombs in Democratic Debate as Warren Fights Back

Going into Wednesday’s Democratic debate, former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg loomed over the field like a colossus. His hundreds of millions of dollars in TV ads had desperate Democratic voters casting him as a potential savior: confident, mainstream, able to win. For the other candidates, he posed a challenge: by turning on him, they might only cement him as the contest’s central figure, allowing him to rise above the fray and offer an escape from the morass of the 2020 primary to date....

Here’s What the Protestors Were Yelling to Joe Biden at the Nevada Democratic Debate

As former Vice President Joe Biden prepared his closing statement at the Nevada Democratic primary debate on Wednesday night, protestors began to yell “You deported 3 million people.” The crowed booed as protested continued to yell, and Biden began speaking again once they left the room. The undetermined number of protestors seem to be referring to to Biden’s role in the Obama administration, which deported over 3 million people. The immigrant rights organization the Refugee and Immigrant C...

Bloomberg Takes Many Attacks, Klobuchar and Buttigieg Spar. The Highlights From Wednesday’s Dramatic Democratic Debate

Bloomberg called trans people “it” just last year, video mysteriously vanishes

Shortly after Buzzfeed News reported on a video of 2020 Democratic hopeful Mike Bloomberg referring to transgender people as “it”, the YouTube clip has gone private. In the recording, taken in March 2019 at a forum hosted by the Bermuda Business Development Agency in Manhattan, Bloomberg argues that talking about transgender rights is a losing strategy during a presidential election. “If your conversation during a presidential election is about some guy wearing a dress and whether he, she, or i...

Bernie Sanders Supporters in Nevada Are Canvassing on Horseback to Get Out the Rural Vote

Sebastian is standing next to me, watching Cynthia Rifi and Brittnee Meechan approach a neighbor’s door to talk about Bernie Sanders. He looks like he might want to go have a chat with the neighbor too, but he’ll wait to see how it goes first. It’s probably worth clarifying that Sebastian is a gorgeous, 16.2-hand Dutch Warmblood horse, and he’s parked out front like a car. He often has a Sanders sign fastened to him like a bumper sticker. He’s been the preferred mode of transportation for R...

With Melania Laying Low, Trump Campaign Turns to Karen Pence to Help Attract Suburban Women

(WASHINGTON) — Karen Pence has no shortage of projects. The wife of Vice President Mike Pence promotes the healing power of art therapy and help for military spouses. She’s into honeybees and supports sister cities. She’s a watercolorist who designs the family’s annual Christmas card and teaches art at a religious elementary school. Now, she’s beginning to campaign on her own to help win a second term for President Donald Trump and her husband. And with first lady Melania Trump largely avoi...

Presidential Primary Fever Getting Underway With Buttigieg Town Hall In Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — California will play a huge role in who could take the White House. The 494 delegates up for grabs could determine who faces off against President Trump. Super Tuesday is right around the corner, and that means candidates are spending big bucks to deliver their message. On Friday, Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg made his pitch to voters during a town hall in Cesar Chavez Plaza. “I now stand before you, at the head of an unlikely campaign, leading in the race f...

Joe Biden Says It’s Not Time to Panic. But His Campaign Is In Trouble.

After back-to-back dismal finishes, former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign is scrambling to sharpen its strategy as it heads into a do-to-die stretch. Biden advisers spent much of Wednesday on the phone with donors and supporters, seeking to reassure loyalists that it’s not time to panic. They told allies to look for more of Biden on television, both in interviews and paid ads, beginning with a trip to The View on Thursday. After months of focusing their fire on President Trump, they pl...

Michael Bloomberg Once Blamed End of Discriminatory ‘Redlining’ for 2008 Financial Collapse

(WASHINGTON) — At the height of the 2008 economic collapse, then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the elimination of a discriminatory housing practice known as “redlining” was responsible for instigating the meltdown. “It all started back when there was a lot of pressure on banks to make loans to everyone,” Bloomberg, now a Democratic presidential candidate, said at a forum that was hosted by Georgetown University in September 2008. “Redlining, if you remember, was the term where banks...

Deval Patrick, Last Black Candidate in 2020 Presidential Race, Ends His Campaign

(WASHINGTON) — Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, the last remaining African American candidate in a Democratic presidential field once defined by its diversity, ended his 2020 campaign Wednesday after his late bid failed to catch fire or resonate with voters. The departure of the former Massachusetts governor from the race comes a day after he lagged near the bottom of the Democratic field in the New Hampshire primary. His decision leaves just one other candidate of color, Hawaii Rep...

Bernie Sanders’ New Hampshire Victory Is a Big Deal for Socialism in America. Here’s What To Know About the History of the Idea

Bernie Sanders, the sole democratic socialist in the 2020 presidential race, came out on top in the Democratic Party’s primary in New Hampshire, winning about 26% of the vote. His victory followed a neck and neck race with former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg in the Iowa caucuses. The Vermont senator’s primary success is the latest development in a long and bumpy history of political socialism in the United States. The contentious political philosophy has had a presence in the U.S....

Why Latinx Voters Make Nevada the First Climate Primary

With the New Hampshire primaries wrapped, all eyes are on Nevada, where the nation’s next presidential caucus is merely 10 days away. It’s the first caucus or primary in a state whose population is mostly people of color, so candidates would be foolish to ignore them—especially if they care about climate change.…Read more...

With New Hampshire Win, Bernie Sanders Is the Democrats’ 2020 Front-Runner

At first, the cheers for Bernie Sanders were so deafening he could hardly begin his speech. “This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” the Vermont Senator and newly minted Democratic presidential front-runner declared. “No matter who wins—and we certainly hope it’s going to be us—we are going to unite together and defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country.” With 85% of the vote counted late Tuesday, Sanders had won the New Hampshire pri...

Andrew Yang, Who Wanted to Give Every American $1,000 a Month, Suspends 2020 Presidential Campaign

Democrat Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur who created buzz for his presidential campaign by championing a universal basic income that would give every American adult $1,000 per month, suspended his 2020 bid on Tuesday. “I am the math guy, and it is clear to me from the numbers that we are not going to win this race,” Yang said in front of a crowd of supporters as votes in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary were being counted. “This is not an easy decision, or something I made lightly w...

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet Drops Presidential Bid After Falling Short in New Hampshire

Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet ended his long-shot presidential bid Tuesday, failing to break out of a crowded Democratic field dominated by other moderate candidates, including Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. Bennet, 55, was a late entrant to the race who staked his bid largely on trying to win New Hampshire. He only formally announced his candidacy in late April, after completing treatment for prostate cancer. He was the seventh senator and second white Colorado moderate to joi...

This is the room that scares the crap out of the Democratic establishment: a college gymnasium in Keene, N.H., packed to the rafters with nearly 2,000 Bernie Sanders fans joyfully noodle-dancing to a Vermont-based jam band playing a raucous cover of the Talking Heads song “Burning Down the House.” A little while later, Sanders takes the stage, accompanied by his wife, three children and two grandchildren. “Thank you, Twiddle!” he says. Then he stops to reflect on how far he’s come since his...

Mike Bloomberg Wins First in New Hampshire as Tiny Dixville Notch Picks Him

(DIXVILLE NOTCH, N.H.) — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg won the votes of a tiny New Hampshire community that barely hung onto its tradition of being among the first to cast ballots in the presidential primary. Dixville Notch’s five residents cast their ballots just after the stroke of midnight Tuesday in the first 2020 Democratic presidential primary vote in the nation. Bloomberg received three write-in votes, one from a Republican and two from Democrats. The remaining votes w...

Joe Biden Limps into the New Hampshire Primary

Confidence in low reserve, Joe Biden’s campaign lumbered into Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary trying to claw its way into a third-place finish that would help justify going forward after expected back-to-back losses. Biden told NBC News on the eve of the primary that he could probably survive a fourth-place showing here. Still, those around the former Vice President were skittish about what Tuesday’s results could bring, including the possibility he could slip to a distant fifth. Senator Be...
