2020 General Election


#43

We’re not fucked just because of the Koch’s, were fucked because the boomers won’t vote for pro environmental candidates like Inslee.


#44

The New York Times seems surprised by the crowd size for Democratic candidates. They must not have been to any of the big record breaking marches in the past two years.


#45

Howard Schultz is the new Jeb! candidate.
Please clap.


#46

Everyone should just start running, it’s enough already. Weekend poll below :point_down:


#47

#48

I think it was Booker who quipped that 2020 stands for the number who are going to run. :slightly_smiling_face: I found it amusing.


#49

Rising star


(Matt Kiser) #51

Is he the one who drank franking water or was that somebody else? I can’t keep track of all these people


#52

I don’t think he drinks fracking water. Mayor Pete is the “Millennial” candidate. He’s my favorite underdog/rising star.

A member of the Democratic Party, Buttigieg is a graduate of Harvard University, a Rhodes Scholar, and a veteran of the War in Afghanistan.[4]He is competing for the party’s nomination in the 2020 presidential election, and is the first openly gayDemocratic candidate ever to run for President of the United States.[5] If elected, he would be the first openly gay president as well as the youngest.

Hickenlooper offers new details on drinking Halliburton’s frack fluid


“Was it in a martini glass? Where there little umbrellas?” Hickenlooper asked with a smile.

No, is the answer. It was a screw-top jar of CleanStim, a new kind of fluid used in hydraulic fracturing that Halliburton … a global oil service company, had developed using food-grade additives, Hickenlooper said.

BTW, I’m seriously contemplating drafting a preliminary plan to form a committee to explore the possibility of announcing my availability as a candidate for President. :wink:


(Matt Kiser) #54

Ah yes! That’s the one! Thanks!

Warren really shines in these townhall events. She’s laid out more policy tonight than the entire democratic field as a whole. If you like true policy wonks, she’s worth a listen. CNN live feed and highlights below :point_down:


#62

Kirsten Gillibrand —“there’s no such thing as an illegal human!” :raised_hands: :raised_hands: :raised_hands: Gillibrand is interesting, she has the strongest voting record against Trump of any of the Democratic candidates and currently holds the same seat that Secretary Clinton formerly held in New York. Highlights from her townhall event below. :point_down:
