Historic Campaigns....

Does anyone feel like that word has been thrown around a lot lately? What do I know though? We've never had an elderly white man gather a specific constituency and then go on to lose the nomination by double digits. Nope. Never happened. In 2008, John McCain also ran a historic general election campaign...

Jeff Weaver is about to come on WADR.

I wonder what he is going to say now.

Edit:
Eh, just previewing the speech that Bernie is going to give tonight. How far the mighty have fallen. He couldn't get arrested by the media now. Weaver has been defanged and it's glorious to see.

They are not currently lobbying super-delegates. He's trying to state that the Clinton campaign official joining the DNC is something that will make DWS useless at the DNC.

Sanders backed candidate Lucy Flores is facing a defeat at the hands of Hillary SD Ruben Kihuen!

AP, Decision desk, and Jon Ralston have called it.

If Sanders did one thing this election, he proved that the people could overcome the influence of money on their elections. He sure spent a lot trying.

Never one to miss an opportunity...

Is anyone watching the disgrace that is Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC?

Lord, she flat out accused her of setting up the email servers to avoid journalist and FOIA in a long rant that started with mentioning Hillary's mother.

For those saying that people won't go out to vote since the race has already been decided.

What do you think the other side has been doing since March. 15th?

(But seriously, if you are in a state that votes tomorrow, go vote.)



Exit poll: In tight CA race, absentee voters favor Hillary

http://capitolweekly.net/exit-poll-tight-race-absentee-voters-favor-hillary/

With just 48 hours until polls close in California, the crucial Democratic presidential contest between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders appears to be tightening. On the Republican side, the unopposed presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is trying to show that he can consolidate the Republican electorate behind his candidacy.

Both make for interesting contests, albeit for completely different reasons.

The results of the online exit poll show Hillary leading in absentee votes by 12 points.

As a core part of the Capitol Weekly Absentee Voter Exit Poll, we sought to develop a tool that would allow us to survey enough of the early electorate to track support at the statewide level for each candidate and obtain similar results from each of California’s 53 congressional districts. We seek to give our readers a sense of which districts are solid for a candidate and where the battlegrounds lie, based solely on absentee voters who have returned ballots.


It could/will be close so vote! vote! vote!

It's Close in California: Clinton 49%, Sanders 47% NBC/WSJ/Marist

Hillary Clinton is clinging to a narrow two-point lead over Bernie Sanders in California ahead of the state's June 7 primary, according to results from a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.

Clinton gets support from 49 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the state, while Sanders gets 47 percent, which is within the survey's margin of error.




The poll have Bernie winning Latinos so I'm a bit skeptical. Whatever the outcome though, there is no Bernie landslide in the cards (there never was). Hillary also leads in early voting.

Sanders fails to oust Clinton backers from convention roles

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic officials have rejected Bernie Sanders' request to remove two high-profile Hillary Clinton supporters from leadership positions at the party's summer convention.

Sanders' presidential campaign said in a letter Friday to the Democratic National Committee that Dannel Malloy, Connecticut's governor, and Barney Frank, a former Massachusetts congressman, couldn't be relied upon to perform their roles "fairly and capably while laboring under such deeply held bias."

Malloy is Platform Committee co-chairman. Frank is co-chairman of the Rules Committee.

Democratic officials responded to Sanders' request on Saturday, saying in a letter that Malloy and Frank were elected under party rules and that Sanders wasn't alleging any violations of that process.


The DNC says it reviewed the challenge, found it failed to meet the criteria and "we are compelled to dismiss it."


2/2 for Failed Stunts this week.

"We need a campaign, an election, coming up which does not have two candidates who are really very, very strongly disliked. I don't want to see the American people voting for the lesser of two evils," the senator told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos during an interview that will air on "This Week" Sunday. "I want the American people to be voting for a vision of economic justice, of social justice, of environmental justice, of racial justice."

Asked by Stephanopoulos whether he would describe Clinton as the lesser of two evils against Donald Trump, Sanders responded, "No, I wouldn't describe it, but that's what the American people are saying."


His new methods of ignoring the votes of Democrats and especially PoC...

Sanders added that he will use Hillary Clinton's low favorability ratings as part of his case to Democratic party super delegates that they should back him over her.


I hope the Clinton team hits back hard. And apparently, Democrats don't hate Clinton enough to vote for him instead. Must bruise that inflated ego.

She didn't let her get one inch and just called out her pivot at the end.
