Joe Biden Forgets What Office He’s Running For in South Carolina

Biden said he was running for the United States Senate.

Joe Biden appeared to momentarily forget that he’s currently running for President when speaking at an event in South Carolina, stating that he was running for the Senate.

My name is Joe Biden, I’m a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Biden’s slip of the tongue is the latest of several gaffes throughout his campaign that have left spectators questioning his mental acuity. Biden has displayed forgetfulness at times, even to the point of forgetting what state he’s currently campaigning in. Biden asked what wasn’t to like about Vermont earlier in the campaign, when he was actually campaigning in New Hampshire.

Even for longtime political opponents of the former Vice President, it’s somewhat sad to see Biden competing for the presidency when it seems likely he’s not as mentally sharp as he once was. Yet the American public deserves an honest assessment of his capacities, considering the rigors of the presidency are far more than anything a candidate could possibly face on the campaign trail.

Biden would be oldest President to be sworn in on inauguration day if he won the election. He’s currently 77.

Biden faces a critical primary firewall in the upcoming South Carolina primary. After a string of poor performances in the first primary and caucus states, the former Democratic frontrunner may be left with no choice but to drop out if he can’t secure a victory in the first southern state of the primary.

The Biden campaign is turning its guns on frontrunner Bernie Sanders, targeting the Vermont socialist’s tenuous relationship with former President Barack Obama in a new ad campaign.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
