Sherrod Brown Won't Run For President

Source: Talking Points Memo

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) won’t run for president after all, he announced Thursday.

“Being president isn’t something I have dreamed of my whole life or even for years,” Brown said in a statement. “My goal for our tour is to make the dignity of work the centerpiece of the Democrats’ 2020 campaign because I believe that’s the way to beat Donald Trump.”

Democratic National Committee rejects Fox News for debates, citing New Yorker article

Yeah for Tom Perez https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/democratic-national-committee-rejects-fox-news-for-debates-citing-new-yorker-article/2019/03/06/a0bdf55c-402e-11e9-922c-64d6b7840b82_story.html?utm_term=.fff4844486cd

The Democratic National Committee has decided to exclude Fox News Channel from televising any of its candidate debates during the 2019-2020 cycle as a result of published revelations detailing the cable network’s close ties to the Trump administration.

In a statement Wednesday, DNC Chairman Tom Perez cited a story in the New Yorker magazine this week that detailed how Fox has promoted President Trump’s agenda. The article, entitled “The Making of the Fox News White House,” suggested that the news network had become a propaganda vehicle for Trump.

“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” said Perez in his statement to The Washington Post. “That is why I have made it a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News. Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”

Wendy Davis says she's also mulling Texas Senate run in 2020

In 2014 we had a doctor who was the nominee for the Senate seat because no one wanted to run and he self-funded. In 2012, we had Paul Sadler who is a nice guy but could not afford yard signs. Now we have MJ Hegar, the Castro Brothers and Wendy Davis looking at running. At the state party, there is still some hope that Beto may change his mind.

I like Wendy https://news.yahoo.com/wendy-davis-says-shes-mulling-texas-senate-run-195707115--election.html?fbclid=IwAR3MgH3fk_NiN8RR-H1ltUnxbslh-NUGmQ2dSKG5ZQMIrqXIjYy4BU4wEWM

Wendy Davis of Texas said Tuesday she is considering a U.S. Senate run in 2020 but is waiting to see whether another high-profile Democrat, Rep. Joaquin Castro, goes through with challenging Republican incumbent John Cornyn.

Davis hasn't run for office since badly losing the governor's race in 2014 following her star-making filibuster of an anti-abortion bill in the Texas Capitol, catapulting her into the national spotlight and making her a prominent voice for women's rights.

She told The Associated Press she has urged Castro to run, calling him "uniquely poised" in Texas to give Democrats a chance at winning their first statewide office in 25 years. Castro said last week he was giving "serious" consideration to a Senate campaign but set no timetable for a decision.

Davis said she wants him to decide soon so that someone else — including her — could step up if he sits out. She said she also discussed a Senate run with MJ Hegar, an Air Force veteran who last year lost a close congressional challenge near Austin.

In 2014, Texas voter turnout was hit hard by the GOP voter id/voter suppression law Here is a chart that shows the effect of the Texas voter id law on Democratic turnout

Greg Abbott got more votes in 2014 compared to Rick Perry while Wendy Davis got far fewer votes even though she spent more.

It is nice to see some strong candidates run

'Somebody Else' Would Beat Trump In Texas

Texas will turn blue Trump is speeding up the process https://politicalwire.com/2019/03/05/somebody-else-would-beat-trump-in-texas/

A new University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll finds a slight majority of Texas voters would choose someone other than Donald Trump in a presidential race held right now.

“While 45% said they would ‘definitely vote for someone else,’ 39% said they would ‘definitely vote to re-elect Donald Trump.’ But the president got 10% who said they would ‘probably vote to re-elect Donald Trump,’ and only 6% said they would ‘probably vote for someone else.'”

“If you count the leaners on both sides, that would be a virtual tie between Trump and an unnamed opponent.”
