Tonight is the Dem primaries for AL, CA, IA, MT, MS NJ, NM and CA. The state being watched most closely is the largest one, California, especially in the house, senate and governor’s races. From Politico: Democrats are more assured of getting general election candidates through the primary in four other Clinton-won, Republican-held districts in California. And in the governor’s race, it could be Republicans who end up without a candidate. That race is a battle for second place. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom has led public polling, but former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and state Treasurer John Chiang, both … Continue reading →

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who galvanized the progressive movement during his presidential primary contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, has endorsed Democrat Greg Edwards in his bid to represent the Lehigh Valley in Congress.
Sanders described Edwards, a community organizer, as working “tirelessly” to promote “justice in health care, education and economic dignity throughout the Lehigh Valley,” according to a statement forwarded by Edwards’ campaign.
“From his work in the nonprofit sector to his practice of nonviolent direct action, Greg is a proven progressive leader who has had the courage to speak out and fight for those left behind,” said Sanders of Vermont. “…He brings with him the courage to fight for what’s right, the vision to build an America that works for all of us, and the experience to represent his district.”
Edwards, who is competing against five other Democrats in the 7th District, has often echoed Sanders mantra of debt-free education, universal pre-Kindergarten, Meidcare for All and a higher minimum. Edwards was endorsed last week by the Congressional Progressive Caucus which counts Sanders, now an independent, as a member.
In a statement, Edwards said he was “humbled and honored” by the endorsement and sees him as “a colleague ready to fight alongside him to restore power to the people.”

The ides of March. Originated with Julius Caesar, but not emphasized until Shakespeare wrote a play about a Roman dictator. But also how the dictator was assassinated and the underbelly of corruption was exposed. On this date in 2016, Bernie Sanders decided not to fold up his campaign, even though he did poorly in Super Tuesday. However, TBTB in the Democratic Party tried to coronate one of its baronesses as the nominee and did not honor their agreement to host more debates. But Bernie didn’t give up. He ended up winning more states and raising over $234M, over a million … Continue reading →
Chelsea’s running. A transgender former Army intelligence who rose to national prominence for leaking sensitive information to Wikileaks has taken steps to run for U.S. Senate in Maryland. The Federal Election Commission website indicates Chelsea Manning on Thursday filed for candidacy to run as a Democrat in the mid-term election. It would be difficult for Manning to wrest the Democratic nomination from incumbent Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who’s seen the overwhelmingly favorite as he runs for a third term. The primary is set for June 28. Technically, Cardin hasn’t confirmed he’ll be defending his seat. Ben Cardin, 74, has not … Continue reading →
