Tom Steyer Tag

Tom Steyer, the west coast billionaire obsessed with impeaching President Donald Trump, recently announced his 2020 bid for president. To the shock of many, he has met the fundraising goal to appear in the next Democratic primary debate. Although he still has to meet the polling requirement, some people on the left believe he used his wealth to satisfy the donor threshold.

I read with great interest FiveThirtyEight's breakdown of "The Six Wings of the Democratic Party," so you can imagine my amusement when "Progressive Old Guard" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) finally said what we all know to be true:  the House would be ridiculously stupid to impeach President Trump. Okay, she didn't say it quite like that, but that was the gist of it.  In an exclusive interview with The Washington Post, Pelosi announced that she was about to "give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before."

The left's enthusiasm about Bernie-backed Andrew Gillum Winning the Florida Governor Democrat primary may be misplaced.  Because his primary opponents were focused on President Trump, not on the Tallahassee mayor who seemed such a long-shot, Gillum sailed through the primary unscathed.  This will not be the case in his race against Republican Ron DeSantis, and the DeSantis team will have a lot to work with.
