Latino Decisions

DNC Chair Tom Perez says Democrats have stepped up Latino voter outreach

AUSTIN, Texas — Democratic Party Chairman Tom Perez is pushing back on criticism of the party’s outreach to Latinos, saying there has been “important and substantial investment in Latino voters across the country.”

“I knew when I took this job we needed to up our game in every community,” Perez, the first Latino to head the Democratic Party, told NBC News on Monday.

Perez said work started before the midterm election cycle and included helping to get Annette Taddeo elected to the Florida state Senate and increasing the Latino vote for Democratic wins in Virginia.

The party has invested upward of $3 million in 15 states in the run-up to the midterms on organizing, voter registration, digital strategies, radio ads and more. “And I’m proud of the work we’ve done,” Perez said.




A deep, deep discount on dinner in Hillsborough with Steve Bannon

“New prices! We want to pack the house!!!” says a posting on the party’s web site.

The Hillsborough County Republican Party has cut the prices for its Oct. 26 fundraising dinner with former Donald Trump political strategist Steve Bannon.

"New prices! We want to pack the house!!!" says a posting on the party's web site.

The premier "chairman's table" at the event, where Bannon will be seated, originally advertised at $20,000 for 10 VIP seats, has dropped to $5,000. VIP tickets have gone from $1,000 to $300, general admission from $125 to $50, and $15 student tickets — no meal or alcohol — have been added.

TYT, H A Goodman, The Sane Progressive, etc....

Have absolutely nothing to do with the left outside of damaging our cause.

Their targets have been too easy in the past. Don't let it happen again. Don't spread their propaganda. Goodman is still calling for the jailing of HRC all while promoting the NRA on the Daily Caller. TYT are spending as much time covering their past sexual assaults as they are ratfucking. Debbie is still more concerned about locking Clinton up and making sure she has put enough slobber on her brows.

We have brilliant columnists, people running, and elected officials. We don't need to spread the words of these right wingers this time around.

Nancy Pelosi suggests subpoena power could be useful tool in negotiating with Trump

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pledged Monday to use subpoena power purposefully if Democrats win a majority in the House in November, adding that the power is a potent tool for negotiating.

"Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it," Pelosi told Dana Bash at the day-long CITIZEN Conference put on by CNN. "It's a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects."

Subpoena power, something that would allow House Democrats to call Trump administration officials to testify before Congress as long as they are in power, could be considered one of the most powerful tools Democrats would gain if they win in November.


Russian national charged with attempting to interfere in 2018 midterms

A Russian who allegedly worked on funding online propaganda efforts to manipulate voters in the 2016 and 2018 elections was charged with a federal crime Friday as part of a wider conspiracy to hurt American democracy.

Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, 44, of St. Petersburg, Russia, is charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States for managing the financing of the social media troll operation that included the Internet Research Agency, which special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators charged with crimes earlier this year.

Prosecutors who unsealed the complaint Friday say she aided the Russian effort to "inflame passions" online related to immigration, gun control and the Second Amendment, the Confederate flag, race relations, LGBT issues, the Women's March and the NFL National Anthem debate from December 2016 until May 2018.


Journalist(s) will be murdered in the US soon.

I'm not saying there are going to be a rash of journalists murdered in this country but at least one is going to be murdered soon. Trump is promoting violence toward them and mental health care in this country is a joke. Even under the best of care it is still up to the individual. I don't think this is hyperbole. The President of the US is instigating individuals in what will be the death of a member of the free press.

'Pizzagate' Gunman Edgar Maddison Welch Sentenced to Four Years in Prison

The North Carolina man who fired a rifle inside a Washington, D.C., pizzeria as he chased down an internet rumor related to Hillary Clinton was sentenced Thursday to four years behind bars.


The possible consequences for Trumps speech are known. It's very close to yelling fire in a crowded theater at this point in time.

If you have no problems voting on election day...

Please call this person and leave him a message. Tell him who you voted for and your reasons why.
