This is a significant and exciting development in the building of a major new party across the country.

‚We’ve got to stop the bleeding‘: Democrats sound alarm in Miami

Democrats are sounding the alarm about weak voter turnout rates in Florida’s biggest county, Miami-Dade, where a strong Republican showing is endangering Joe Biden’s chances in the nation’s biggest swing state.

No Democrat can win Florida without a huge turnout and big winning margins here to offset losses elsewhere in the state. But Democrats are turning out at lower rates than Republicans and at lower rates than at this point in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won by 29 percentage points here and still lost the state to Donald Trump.

Wasserman Schultz tritt nach HillaryLeaks als DNC-Chefin zurück …

(25.7.2016) Kurz vor Beginn dieses Parteitages trat Debbie Wasserman Schultz als Vorsitzende des Democratic National Committee (DNC) zurück. Der Grund dafür sind von WikiLeaks öffentlich gemachte E-Mails, die nahe legen, das DNC im Vorwahlkampf nicht (wie es die Statuten eigentlich verlangen) neutral war, sondern sich auf Seiten Clintons geschlagen hatte und für sie arbeitete (vgl. Clinton wählt Swing-State-Gouverneur und Abtreibungsgegner als „Running Mate“). Um Clintons Konkurrenten Bernie Sanders zu schaden, setzte man der Whistleblowerplattform zufolge auch unfaire Mittel ein – darunter auch eine – so WikiLeaks – „bezahlte Trollfabrik“.
