Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 11, 2019

The idea is that rebuilding the party nationally depends on the hard work of winning seats in state legislatures around the country. With that in mind, the two-year-old Future Now Fund, working with the progressive think tank Data for Progress, is trying to apply pressure to the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates by ranking them in terms of who is doing the most to help Democrats win state legislative races.

A ranking released Thursday shows that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and former Representative Beto O'Rourke of Texas are currently the most engaged with candidates for state office. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. are also ranked in the top 10.

Senator Kamala Harris of California is ranked in the bottom 10, according to the analysis, which has her slightly ahead of Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York and tied with the self-help author Marianne Williamson.

#2 just curious about this answer. Do you ridicule hrc for raising money to support democrats that weren't her? Vs Bern, who only raised to support himself (although that behavior makes for a fake socialist).

BS most of the money raised by hillary for the down-ballot candidates was funneled back into hillarys campaign funds.

you should stop lying to your self.

The money Bernie raised for other candidates stayed with them and not funneled back into his campaign

DNC sought to hide details of Clinton funding deal

Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties.

But during the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement -- validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters.

The arrangement, called the Hillary Victory Fund

Leaked emails show officials tried to obscure fact that Clinton allowed states to keep only a tiny fraction of proceeds from joint fundraising.

But a POLITICO analysis of Federal Election Commission records shows that very little money from the victory fund went to the states after that point.

Between the creation of the victory fund in September and the end of last month, the fund had brought in $142 million, the lion's share of which -- 44 percent -- has wound up in the coffers of the DNC ($24.4 million) and Hillary for America ($37.6 million), according to a POLITICO analysis of FEC reports filed this month. By comparison, the analysis found that the state parties have kept less than $800,000 of all the cash brought in by the committee -- or only 0.56 percent.

#6 That doesn't mean anything. Your anger is clouding your judgement and causing you to ignore the fact that Bernie kept his money, wrote the books, took the cash, sold out the left, etc....

The Jackass party needs to shed the dead wood quick, If they don't have a clear front runner by December, they are cooked. At least down to two or three candidates, else they look like a nest of little birds, all mouths open, all looking the same, saying nothing of note.

started out with 17 candidates ...

Anyway, DOCNJO, your point is moot. And Republicans had no front runner at this point in the 2016 race.

Where in the world do you get your crazy ideas from? Quit visiting there :)

Yep, a failure and retired reality television show host was immediately more popular than the entire Republican field of candidates.

It not safe to say that anybody is "leading" in the pack of Democrats. It's too soon to tell and you can never go by a snapshot in time. Money greases a lot of skids, too.

Somebody usually steps on their dong and gets eliminated (can't raise funds) during the first few debates.

Also early breakouts aren't usually good indicators. It's more difficult to stay on the top than it is to get there.

The smart ones stay classy/professional . . . which is probably a good idea when compared to the unsophisticated gutter trash who has the job now.

Plus voters are fickle.

I am going with AoC .... she by far is keeping the Democrats in the news, and attempting to use empathy as a weapon ...

Her latest stunt is really at a different level ....

Here is someone that doesn't care, the ends justify the means, if he could kill off half the country that voted for Trump, he would do it. He's the definition of evil, doesn't think he's capable of it.

"the ends justify the means"

That's how you feel about Trump's "zero tolerance" family separation policy.
Hmmm.

"if he could kill off half the country that voted for Trump, he would do it."

I guess "sending the undesirables to camps" is already happening.
So you had to up the ante to outright killing them.
