The mayor of New York City did not fare well over the weekend at the South Carolina Democratic Party Convention, where 2020 presidential candidates went to stump ahead of this week’s primary debates.

“15 people, including the mayor of Orangeburg, SC (the first person to endorse the mayor’s 2020 campaign) come to hear [Bill de Blasio] speak in Columbia, SC this morning,” said NY1 political reporter Grace Rauh Saturday.

She continued to rail against de Blasio, polling between zero and one percent.

“Last night at the fish fry, it was very apparent just how far behind the leading candidates de Blasio is at this point. No de Blasio signs or stickers or t-shirts. No campaign aides or volunteers pushing his candidacy,” Rauh said. “As one national political reporter put it to me: de Blasio is not running a campaign. He is just showing up to events.”

Rauh was referring to Rep. Jim Clyburn’s (D-S.C) annual fish fry, which is held every year at his state’s annual convention, and is an important event during presidential primary years.

De Blasio has struggled since his campaign began.

Big League Politics reported:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is leading the Democratic Party primary field in a single category – but not the one his new campaign was hoping to lead.

According to a Tuesday Quinnipiac University poll, de Blasio has the highest negative rating among all of the 23 primary contenders. Forty-five percent of Americans view him negatively, and only eight percent positively.

“He’s been hammered by the late-night talk shows and I don’t think you can underestimate those shows as far as the impact they have on the how people feel about politicians,” Quinnipiac analyst Tim Malloy told The New York Post. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has a 48 percent negative rating, but a 41 percent positive rating. Several Democrat candidates, like Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) were left out of the poll, as Americans had not heard enough about them to decide whether they viewed them positively of negatively.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

on

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
