On the roster: Bernie’s last stand? Poll: Hickenlooper looks good for a Senate run – Audible: it is “international” district

BERNIE’S LAST STAND?
Boston Globe: “While most of the Democratic presidential candidates are worried about how you can build, to support, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may face different tasks: to keep as many Fans as he can from the last time. In 2016, Sanders easily won the New Hampshire primary, the victory over the eventual candidacy of Hillary Clinton, with more than 60 percent of the vote. Given the current field of candidates, the math is clear: If he can convince you, only half of these voters with him, he could pull off another victory. This could be the reason why attending a Sanders campaign event in the year 2019, in a way, mimics a Donald-Trump – rally: much media-bashing, retribution of the most popular topics from his last campaign, and a lot of preaching to the converted.”

Bernie, à la Trump, throws Bezos to WaPo-cover – WaPo: “sen Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday, she took aim at The Washington Post, in two separate staff meetings, accusing the newspaper of bias against his campaign because of his criticism of Amazon’s labor practices and tax-data set. Sanders, who is running for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination, quote, no evidence for his claims. Amazon increased its minimum wage to $15 an hour last year after Sanders and others, demanded the company pay its workers a living wage. The senator also argued that Amazon should pay more federal income tax, after the Wall Street Journal reported in June that it is unclear whether the online retailer paid tax in the last year. The Post is owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, and works independently of Amazon.”

Bennett: free pre-school, but not college – Des Moines Register: “Speaking to hundreds of potential Democratic caucusgoers during the Iowa State Fair on Sunday, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado, used a portion of his time to talk, the presidential candidate, who would be on stage more. Bennet, responded to questions from the audience at the Des Moines Register’s Political soapbox, said he doesn’t believe in complete college, avoid debt, as proposed by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Instead, Bennet said he wants to get it paid easier for people to pay off their student loans through a reduction in the amount, in any year. “Well, I don’t (support),’ he said, responding to scattered boos. “You have to make a choice. I’d rather have free preschool in this country as a free University in this country. This is my feeling. “Don’t you know why politicians talk about the free pre-school and talk about free college? Since preschool children can’t choose.'”

Steyer is closed in the debate qualification – the Atlantic: “the qualification for the Democratic debate has become a game, and Tom Steyer , has more than enough money to play it. In the span of five weeks, the San Francisco-based billionaire activist channels to try millions of dollars of his own money to win a place on the stage in September. If the effort works, and he is always in the vicinity – Steyer, many of the important candidates that are already running for President could beat, for months. A great investment: His campaign bought 8 million voters-files, compiled Need of the group to charges and rent data from NexGen America, two representations of interest, which Steyer founded and still funds. The movement gives his team access to information on dozens of people. But to qualify his ability to close this, so quickly is also a reflection of the system is set-up this cycle, the Democratic National Committee.”

Not winning any bingo here – Fox News: “presidential primary candidate Kamala Harris faced was on Monday for a surprise, Iowa residents over the California senator’s plan to overhaul health care in the United States. The Democrat said the voters at the Bickford Senior Living Center in Muscatine, Iowa, if you are from the center of the residents asked how they planned to pay for ‘Medicare for All’ and you said ‘mess with’ health care. “Leave our health care alone,’ Roberta Jewell, a 91-year-old residents in the seniors residence, said Harris, as she describes her campaign health care proposal. “We don’t want you to experiment with.'”

THE RULES: YA BURNT
“Those who selectively attended to [the Articles of Confederation’ s] vices and deformities as they have been issued, by experience or delineated in the course of these papers, must feel invincible repugnancy to trusting the national interests in any degree to its operation,” James Madison, Federalist No. 30

TIME OUT: “LOVE AND SUCCESS, ALWAYS IN THAT ORDER.’
WaPo: “He is best known for what he said to the children. This was, after all, what is Fred Rogers‘life and his career were all over – every song he sang, every doll, which he expressed, every word he spoke about his beloved TV program, “Mister Rogers’ neighborhood.’ Mister Rogers was for children. But he was for the parents also. For the adults sat next to a small, and watched the softly-spoken man in his handmade cardigan sweater model, what should the communication with children. For the adults, around, turned his words over and over again for advice on how you can help your children through difficult times in your life or in the society around you. This could explain why Rogers ended a moment recently – or perhaps the reason why his moment never really. “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’, was formed in 1968 as a subtle, radical exhaust, and a new force in children’s television programming, and their influence has carried through the present.”

POLL: LOOKS LIKE HICKENLOOPER IS GOOD FOR THE SENATE RUN

John Hickenlooper is running for the U.S. Senate, he immediately becomes a great advantage to the current front-runner in the Democratic field, according to a new survey. Six hundred likely primaries, voters in the state were surveyed, and 61% preferred Hickenlooper, compared to 10% for Mike Johnston and 8% for Andrew Romanoff. Fifteen percent were undecided, and 6% favored Secretary of state, Jena Griswold, who said on Friday that it is not executed, in the year 2020.

Donald Trump Jr, will hold a series of fundraisers and events in the coming months for the Senate Republicans running for re-election. And like his father, the prices, the loyalty, he will appear for some of his fiercest defenders on Capitol Hill, including Sens. John Cornyn, Lindsey Graham, Thom Tillis and Steve Daines. “Everyone knows he is the son of the President,” said Cornyn (R-Texas), the Trump Jr organized an event for this year. “All the trump-voters would be pretty hot. I think all the Never Trump people would be pretty pissed, but this is something where we are.’ It is not the first time, the president’s eldest son has for others. During the only six months in the year 2018 midterms, a source says, Trump Jr has 70 events for Republican candidates, the state and the parties.”

Abrams looks for the bigger stage with voters-a group – Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “Stacey Abrams is set to announce an expansion of their voting rights group on Tuesday with plans to help train employees in 20 States this year, will try to, the fight against voter suppression in the 2020 elections. The Georgia is expected to be a Democrat, to unveil the plans during a speech at a trade Union in Las Vegas, then follow-up with an event this weekend at a Gwinnett County elementary school, where technical problems triggered hours-long lines in November. The new initiative increases the likelihood that the preparations for a new edition in the year 2022, against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp , rather than run for President, an idea that you are not in the public excluded.”

Florida Dems structure of the law Department for the year 2020 of the votes of the Political: “The 2020 presidential election is still 18 months away, but in Florida the legal battle is over the vote is already in full swing. Although outgunned and outspent, and in the past legal battles, Florida’s Democrats have a stand-alone “election protection established” team, headed by a lawyer, whose task will be to build a network of lawyers to spring into action between now and election day. Democrats in the framing of the movement as a response to the ongoing Republican efforts, the left claims are designed to suppress the vote. Their latest example is the GOP-controlled legislature the passage of a bill this spring that would restrict the voting rights of ex-felons in spite of a voter approved amendment to the Florida ended the long-standing disenfranchisement of convicted criminals.”
