Thank you @ninaturner for your fearlessness and your unrelenting commitment to truth telling. These are the qualities that make you powerful and there is no super pac that can change that.

Nina lost for a very simple reason. In the closing stretch THIS happened: „Democratic Majority for Israel, a hybrid PAC/super PAC that has spent $1.2 million on ads supporting Brown and opposing Turner“ – & the ads viciously lied about her. The lies stuck

Turner Vs. Brown: A Showdown Between Progressive And Establishment Dems

There’s a fight for the future of the Democratic Party happening in Ohio

South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House, told CNN recently that Biden needed all the allies he could get in the House, a clear shot at Turner’s past negative comments about the 46th President.

Third Way, a centrist Democratic group, is spending $500,000 on a series of ads driving that same message.

I’m honored to have the support of @MoveOn and their millions of members across the country. Richie Neal may have corporate PACs & lobbyists behind him, but the grassroots momentum and enthusiasm is on our side. Progressives are fired up and we’re going to bring change to #MA01.

Neal is facing off against Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse on Sept. 1 in the Democratic primary, with Morse running hard to Neal’s left in another safe seat for Democrats.

I don’t get it. Why is Bernie even a Dem if he isn’t going to be a puppet for a handful of donors?

2. Just to be clear, this ad where a sitting member of Congress‘ face (@AOC) is lit on fire didn’t just air on the Sinclair station in DC. It also aired on ABC stations in NYC and Houston. Unlike the DC ABC station, the NYC & Houston stations are owned & operated by Disney/ABC

Political Ad Attacking AOC: ‘Beyond the Pale’

A Catholic nun is shocked that ABC would run an ad with “horrific images” during the Democratic debate.

14.09.2019 - 08:34 [ Scott Dworkin, Co-Founder @TheDemCoalition ‏/ Twitter ]

ABC can go to hell. Running propaganda with a picture of @AOC being set on fire, with dead bodies & skulls in the background, was absolutely despicable. People need to be fired over this. It’s ridiculous & evil. ABC profited off of it, during the #DemDebate. Shame on ABC. Shame.

Campaign Finance: Obama and Clinton’s bundlers are betting on these 3 candidates

Big-money Democratic donors have jumped off the sidelines of the presidential race, and three candidates are the clear winners of their support: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris.

Each of those three candidates received more than 220 donations from top fundraisers who helped raise at least $100,000 (and sometimes many multiples more) for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign or at least $50,000 for Barack Obama in 2012, according to a POLITICO analysis of Federal Election Commission data.

11.06.2019 - 19:57 [ Bernie Sanders, candidate for President / Twitter ]

The Koch Brothers are preparing to try to buy the Democratic Party and buy the 2020 election. We cannot let them. The only way we will stop them is to build a grassroots progressive campaign that rejects their right-wing ideology.

Democratic delegate rules, 2020

In 2020, there will be an estimated 4,532 delegates: 3,768 pledged delegates and 764 automatic delegates—more commonly known as superdelegates.[1]

To win the Democratic nomination, a presidential candidate must receive support from a majority of the pledged delegates on the first ballot—an estimated 1,885 pledged delegates. If the convention is contested and goes to a second ballot or more, automatic delegates will be able to vote and a candidate must receive majority support from all delegates—an estimated 2,267 delegates

29.04.2019 - 08:41 [ Bernie Sanders, US Senator / Twitter ]

The good news is that Trump is getting nervous, corporate America is getting nervous and the Democratic establishment is getting nervous. They’re worried that we’re going to win this thing, and they should be.

Bernie Sanders v the Democratic establishment: what the battle is really about

In 10 years of reporting about politics, almost every politician has told me their donors do not influence their behavior. If this were true, they would be the only individuals on planet Earth who are not tempted by money.

What Sanders is arguing is the opposite – if he started doing big-ticket fundraisers with corporate executive and lobbyists, he would be influenced by their money.

American Jews must stand with Ilhan Omar

The right will always use Israel and anti-Semitism as a tool to destroy left-wing movements, especially when they’re led by people of color.

12.02.2019 - 19:26 [ Dave Zirin, Sports editor @thenation ‏/ Twitter ]

As a Jew, I want to welcome anyone who wants to criticize a lobbying coalition funded by arms manufacturers, evangelical Christians, and allies of the right wing edge of Israeli politics. Criticizing AIPAC is not anti-Semitic and it’s absurd that this even needs to be said.
