More Signals Emerge from Camp Beto Regarding 2020 Plans

…And what does Liz Warren’s DNA test have to do with it?

Beto O'Rourke

As we trudge forward into what is sure to be a wild 2020 election season, a few notable names have emerged on the left side of American political posturing.

It’s a bit too early for any official announcements from liberal-leaning challengers, but that doesn’t mean that the American people are completely in the dark, either.

Of course, there have been persistent rumors about yet another run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – a move that has been met with groans from both sides of the aisle.

Then there are the new faces in the democratic party; folks like Kamala Harris and Corey Booker come to mind, especially after witnessing their telegraphed heroics during the Brett Kavqanaugh confirmation circus.

Now, down in the heart of Texas, another name is emerging as a possible contender:  Beto O’Rourke.

One of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) top political advisers is reportedly expected to meet with Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) about a potential 2020 run days after the New York Times conceded that Warren angered her left-wing base with her DNA test and the pro-Warren Boston Globe suggested that she take a pass on a White House bid.

According to a Friday evening report in the Washington Post, Mindy Myers, “who was one of the primary architects of Warren’s political rise and has remained one of her close advisers,” has reportedly “been in talks with several rival campaigns” and is planning to meet with O’Rourke.

Myers was expected to have a top role in Warren’s potential presidential campaign, but it seems like even some of Warren’s most important advisers are seeing the writing on the wall about her 2020 chances.

There has been no official word as to whether or not Elizabeth Warren has abandoned her potential run for the presidency in 2020 after an embarrassing DNA testing stunt that called into question her longstanding claim of Cherokee heritage.

New Report Reveals Ohio Democratic Party Received $300K In Federal Coronavirus Relief Loan

The whole point of the Paycheck Protection Program that was put together earlier this year at the beginning of the lockdowns put in place due to the coronavirus was supposed to provide relief for small businesses who would be left devastated by the sudden and massive loss of income that would come about as a result of these safety measures. However, it seems the Ohio Democratic Party received a sizable chunk of cash to keep them going too. Now that doesn’t seem right, does it? via The Washington Examiner: Campaign finance reports show that the loan, amounting to $333,867, was approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration on April 30, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. In May, a tweet critical of the Trump administration’s program was posted on the group’s official Twitter account. “With so many small businesses shut out from receiving PPP loans ⁠— while nearly 300 publicly traded companies received more than $1 billion from the program⁠ — local governments across Ohio are stepping up to help small businesses, which are often the center of their communities,” the tweet read. https://twitter.com/OHDems/status/1262735869628297217 A spokeswoman for the party came out and actually attempted to defend their receiving the federal funds by saying 20 jobs were saved. “The purpose of the Paycheck Protection Program is to help organizations cover payroll and benefits, and that’s precisely what it has been used for ⁠— to ensure our entire team continued to work and earn a paycheck and retain their health coverage during an unprecedented public health crisis,” Kirstin Alvanitakis said. The Ohio Republican Party slammed the Democrats for taking the money. Evan Machan, the Ohio GOP spokesman, said, “We did not need to apply for these funds. Under the leadership of Chairman Timken, our financial situation is strong, and we were never at…

Trump’s Campaign Developing New Strategy To Draw Big Crowds To Rallies; ‘Can’t Have Repeat Of Tulsa’

Published

on

President Trump’s rally that was held in Tulsa, Oklahoma was super hyped up by media outlets across the Internet with expectations of crowd attendance being astronomically high. As it turns out, not many folks actually showed up to the event, something that deflated Trump’s campaign a bit and has now prompted them to change direction. The new strategy the campaign is looking to employ includes increased safety measures to make folks feel comfortable enough to attend the event, as many believe fear of the coronavirus prevented many individuals from attending the Tulsa rally. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “We can’t have a repeat of Tulsa,” a campaign official told NBC News, referring to Trump’s upcoming rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, this Saturday. The president’s rallies resume as many states grapple with upticks in coronavirus cases, prompting state and local leadership to halt reopenings and introduce new public health orders to prevent the spread of the virus. Unlike the indoor venue the campaign chose for its Tulsa rally, the president will make his appearance in an open-air airport tarmac hangar this weekend. Health experts have said outdoor events are less risky than large gatherings indoors, but also stress that the virus can still be spread. An official from the White House noted that Trump understands that people may not come out the way they did in 2016 due to fears over catching COVID-19. When the rally was held in Tulsa, masks were offered to those who showed up to the event, but many of them didn’t bother to wear them. Several staffers and a couple of prominent attendees ended up testing positive for the coronavirus. Masks are apparently going to be strongly encouraged at the New Hampshire rally, though the campaign said they will not be mandated.
