Local Elections Open Thread: One Small Thing

I just donated to the campaign of Graham’s Democratic opponent. I don’t know his chances (yes, it’s SC, voter suppression, gerrymandering, ratfvcking et al), but it was good for my blood pressure.

    @SaintAnselmPoll

    NH poll has BS in 5th. But more importantly to me… Kamala Harris is #2 to Biden but within statistical error from #1

    .
    @KamalaHarris
    surges from 6.8% to 17.5% in New Hampshire. Within the margin of error in overtaking
    @JoeBiden
    for first place.

    Listen…all the focus on bussing and bullshit and Kamala Harris is quietly and practically under the radar building her campaign apparatus up in those early states.

    Biden folks got him doing more ole sckool…speeches and what not. I guess, they’re banking on PBO coalition just following along I guess?

    Are they not trying to expand and keep up their coalition?

    Biden needs more of this meet and greet stuff

    You know Lindsey Graham reminds me of that weak kid in school who seeks out a stronger kid and becames his loyal sidekick, carrying their satchel and laughing at their jokes. All so they can bathe in the other kid’s reflected glory, get protection and hope their reputation rubs off on them.

    Graham did that with McCain but now he’s not there any longer, he has moved on, without so much as a backwards look, to the new tough kid in the school.

    They will split a big chunk of the total vote and we will end up with someone else who is not as strong a candidate and will not be as effective a president.

    @chris: Either works. Graham had a streak of humor to him before Trump’s inauguration. That’s gone. He always seemed like an actor (moreso than the usual politician) who occasionally allowed his true self to show through. There was always a dimension to Graham that would never be revealed willingly, which is why the gay rumor sticks so strongly.

    Now he’s just a straight up fictional character. He’s hostage to something, and making the most of the very limited space he can operate in.

    The grammar in the report is very, very poor, so I’m skeptical, but maybe there’s something worth investigating there.

She and her camp have been putting in the work for sure and now the polls in places like NH are showing how well that hard work is going. Also too, there was some fake rumour aobut Harris coming to Utah…it wasn’t true, but the fact that there was good buzz in Dem circles about Kamala, seems like a good thing for the campaign.

    Pelosi torpedoes White House debt limit plan, throwing budget talks into chaos

    FInally! Speaker Pelosi takes a stand.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi late Monday said the House of Representatives would not raise the debt ceiling unless it is part of a broader budget deal, putting extreme pressure on the White House and congressional leaders to cut a deal within days.

    Pelosi, the California Democrat, said the idea of raising the debt ceiling on its own and not in conjunction with a budget agreement was not “acceptable to our caucus” and therefore did not stand a chance of passage in the House of Representatives.

    Pelosi’s comments appeared to directly shoot down a demand from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin just hours earlier. Mnuchin, speaking to reporters at the White House, said Congress would have to raise the debt ceiling before the August recess if they can’t reach a budget deal because he could run out of money to pay the government’s bills if no action was taken.

I think they’ve yet to choose, this year, between the dozen single-digit white male candidates; I know Seth Moulton (& to a lesser degree, Tim Ryan) have been all over the state for the last couple months, as duly highlighted in the local media. They went hard for Bern-it-down in 2016 because, uch, Hillary, but apart from the cranky personality they don’t have much in common politically.

    Still, I think that Harris is a more certain bet because she comes across as a warmer, more responsive personality than Warren.

    Warren deserves a lot of credit for her ground-breaking policy proposals. She’s moved the Overton window singlehandily, and that allows whoever ends up running a wider, clearer path forward.

    “Based on updated projections, there is a scenario in which we run out of cash in early September, before Congress reconvenes,” Mnuchin said. “As such, I request that Congress increase the debt ceiling before Congress leaves for summer recess.”

    Such a move could untangle the debt ceiling issue from ongoing negotiations over the budget and appropriations. Lawmakers had hoped to tie the two issues together, but the updated timeline could now make that difficult. Congress and the White House remain far apart on a deal to raise budget caps to avoid automatic spending cuts that are set to take place in fiscal 2020 under the 2011 Budget Control Act. Pelosi said on Thursday she has spoken to Mnuchin multiple times this week and is still looking to take up the debt ceiling and a budget deal together.

    Mnuchin is trying to short-circuit budget negotiations and make the House surrender rather than allow the House and Senate to negotiate in good faith. (McConnell has said that the Senate isn’t going to do anything about the budget until the White House comes to terms with the House.)

    Obama didn’t do that.

    Relatedly, has anyone noticed how actually mean and ugly Graham’s facial expressions are when he goes on his rants, as he did against the 4 Congresswomen and memorably, too, during the Kavanaugh hearings? Anyone who can look that ugly and mean is revealing a lot about his lack of a moral core.

    @dww44: Is Harrison a better candidate than Gloria Bromell Tinubu?

    Gloria Bromell Tinubu, a former Democratic candidate for Congress and lieutenant governor, will enter the race against U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-Seneca, on Tuesday. The Georgetown resident will formally kick off her campaign at a State House press conference on Wednesday.

    She told The State she was inspired to run during a discussion with an African American history class at the College of Charleston.

    “Much of it centered around work and race and how the people who contribute to the wealth are not able to benefit from the wealth they create,” Bromell Tinubu said. “That has an impact on college students who are working two jobs to afford school and be in debt by the time they finish.”

    Bromell Tinubu’s entry into the race could set up a fight in the Democratic primary. Former S.C. Democratic Party Chairman Jaime Harrison has also formed a committee exploring a possible challenge to Graham. He is expected to announce his candidacy soon.

    Bromell Tinubu told The State her campaign will focus on rural areas that she says have been left behind in today’s economy.

    “Most who live in rural counties have not benefited from economic growth,” she said. “The economy is not the person who goes to work every day and earns barely enough to keep a roof over their head.”

    A former member of the Georgia state House of Representatives and a former economics professor at Coastal Carolina University, Bromell Tinubu previously ran for Congress in South Carolina’s 7th District. She was the Democratic nominee in 2012, the first election after the Grand Strand-centered district was created when South Carolina earned a seventh congressional seat due to population growth. She lost that race and another in 2014 to U.S. Rep. Tom Rice, R-Myrtle Beach.

    It’s great that several people are running in the primary. I want to know more about them before going all-in on either of them (though I sent a small donation to Harrison when he announced).

    YMMV.

    Cheers,
    Scott.

    @Another Scott: Can’t speak to the Bromell Tinubu candidacy, but I do know that Jaime Harrison has an actual page on Act Blue already and he’s been interviewed on tv several times, including on the RM Show. I find him to be an appealing and viable candidate. As a Georgian, I’ve never heard of Bromell Tinubu.
