    Tuesday's Big Winner: Bernie Sanders


    With Gillum’s victory, however, Sanders now holds an affiliation with all three African American Democrats running for governor in November. In addition to Gillum, he backed Stacey Abrams in Georgia and Ben Jealous in Maryland.

    Gillum’s victory capped an especially successful night for Sanders in Florida. Sanders endorsed nine candidates across the state, including several state House candidates. Of the Sanders-backed candidates, four ran in contested primaries, and all of them won.

    While Sanders wasn’t alone in his support for Gillum — the Tallahassee mayor was endorsed by Steyer and Julián Castro, the former San Antonio mayor and Obama Cabinet secretary — other major Democrats considering running in 2020, including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), did not go out on a limb to endorse him.

    “We have a true progressive on the ballot, the first black major party nominee for governor in state history, and he is counting on our support,” said Nina Turner, president of Our Revolution, the Sanders-inspired grassroots group, in a fundraising email Tuesday evening. “That is why Senator Bernie Sanders, local groups, and Gillum’s grassroots army got out the vote to put him over the top in this primary.”

    1. Now that the FL Dem primary is over, however, "Obama with Boobs" or Kamala

    Harris sent me an e-mail this afternoon, via MoveOn.org, looking for “a contribution of $3.00 or more for Andrew Gillum’s bold, progressive campaign.”

    Apparently, the contribution goes through ActBlue, but nothing is taken for the Harris campaign, as if I would contribute even a plugged nickel to help out her presumptive 2020 campaign.

    2. I have this feeling

    that we are going to witness a grass roots effort, like we’ve never seen before, in Floirda

    There is no one like Bernie Sanders. NO ONE!!! I ONLY vote for grass roots "progressive" politicians that support: "Single Payer Healthcare", "Tuition Free College", and "15 bucks an hour". Always remember, "Establishment democrats" would rather lose to a republican than support a progressive democrat. How fucked up is that? The cause is right!!  The time is NOW!!! We need a revolution. And we need it NOW..... I mean yesterday.  :) That is all.....   Have a great day.

      4. If the DNC doesn't alienate Gillum supporters first.

      5. That would be awesome!

      And it would help out the rest of us who don’t live there, as well.
      With no Senators running for re-election this year, the people of Idaho have no affect on the outcome of which party controls the Senate next year.

      I think Mitch McConnell is worried about his tenuous hold on the Senate.
      Senator Ted Cruz is asking Trump to come to Texas to campaign for him.

    Exactly why he’s a winner.
