Regardless their and Scientific American’s steps against the Trump campaign are unusual forays into the political for two prominent science and technology publications. Guns and Ammo and National Geographic have 81 days to let the public know where they stand.
Although some Bernie Sanders supporters have insisted at the Democratic National Convention that they will not be voting for Hillary Clinton in November, their preferred candidate has a track record of saying he will.
The Trump campaign “has gone from frankly something that was entertaining, comical, and has devolved into something that is frankly scary,” said Javier Palomarez, the chamber president and chief executive officer.
The substance of Sanders’ speech was no different than any other campaign stop. It was an of corporate greed, environmental destruction, regressive taxes, educational and health care debt, and nativism. Absent, though, were any associations between Clinton and Wall Street, a staple of the tone of his campaign in primary season.
Sanders and Clinton will discuss “their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top,” according to a statements released early on Monday from both campaigns.
While U.S. President Barack Obama has made remarks indicating a preference for Hillary Clinton, his former secretary of state, he has so far avoided a clear endorsement and has focused his remarks about the campaign on blasting Donald Trump. A senior White House official would not comment on timing of any endorsement but said Obama is eager to campaign where he might be useful. The expected Obama endorsement, reported by The New York Times and CNN, would come as a welcome boost to Clinton and to Democrats concerned that the party needs to turn its attention fully to campaigning against Republican nominee Donald Trump.
The irony here is obvious: Why is Sanders endorsing candidates at all? The former independent democratic socialist has been a member of the Democratic Party for just a few months, and the vast majority of Democrats in politics have endorsed his rival for the party’s nomination.
“I have decided to cast my vote for Hillary Clinton because I believe this is the only path forward to win the presidency and stop the dangerous candidacy of Donald Trump,” Brown said in a letter to California Democrats and independents posted online.
When the chairwoman of the Republican Governor’s Association and the only Latina governor in the United States failed to endorse Donald Trump before he campaigned in her state on Tuesday night, Don didn’t take it lightly. One Trumper tantrum later, a spokesman for Susana Martinez’ office said simply, “Governor Martinez doesn’t care about what Donald Trump says about her.”
Two of Donald Trump’s most prominent political endorsers, Ben Carson and Sarah Palin, have not been doing a very good job convincing voters to support Trump. The two have spent much of the time since they endorsed Trump either publicly regretting their choice or passing off a verbal stream of consciousness as public speaking.
Nevada’s largest labor organization, the powerful Culinary Union, will not offer an endorsement before the state’s Democratic caucuses next month, a reversal from 2008, when a bitter fight emerged over its backing.
‘The Nation’ magazine, America’s oldest continuously published weekly magazine, endorsed Democratic candidate Bernie Sander’s (I-VT) for President. “He has summoned the people to a ‘political revolution,'” they wrote in an editorial published Thursday. “We believe such a revolution is not only possible but necessary—and that’s why we’re endorsing Bernie Sanders for president.”
Mitt Romney received the endorsement of New Jersey Governor and Republican establishment favorite Chris Christie in New Hampshire today. “I’m here for one simple reason: America cannot survive another four years of Barack Obama,” Christie said. This isn’t a shock, as the two men are both Northeastern moderates who have defied party orthodoxy. But to […]
Not a surprise, but a sign that Obama’s education “reform” efforts haven’t alienated a powerful ally, despite their frustration with him: The nation’s largest teachers union voted Monday to endorse President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election bid, during a raucous convention that highlighted widespread unhappiness with the president’s education policies. The vote, during the annual convention […]
The gun lobby accidentally got an endorsement from Al Qaeda recently when the terrorist group’s American-born spokesman Adam Gadahn urged followers in a video to take advantage of the gun show loophole, which allows people to buy firearms from private sellers without a background check or even ID. “This is a golden opportunity. America is […]
