Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) failed to fill small auditorium at an early voting rally in Iowa, an important battleground state to which a visit generally signifies a politician’s plan to run for president.
Those prospects might have been slightly diminished for Harris, the progressive member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who spoke to a crowd of only about 70 in an unfilled auditorium, according to a local CBS reporter.

Harris went out of her way to make a dog-and-pony show out of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, which left a sour taste in the mouths of some.
Still, mainstream press fueled speculation Harris will be a viable contender in 2020.
“California Senator Kamala Harris rolled into Iowa on Monday to stump for Democratic candidates in the final days before the midterm elections and, many suspect, test the waters for a run at the presidency in 2020,” said Newsweek. “A CNN poll conducted by SSRS in early October found Harris to be the third favorite in the list of potential Democratic primary candidates for 2020, though she was a long way behind the leader of the pack.”
According to that poll, former vice president Joe Biden is leading the way for Democrats.

Bernie Sanders Projected as Winner of Nevada Democratic Caucus
Panic mode is on for the Democratic establishment.
Bernie Sanders has been projected as the winner of Saturday’s Nevada Democratic Caucus.
Fox News was among the first media outlets to project Sanders, a Vermont U.S. Senator and Democratic Socialist, as the winner of the third-in-the-nation contest.
Initial ballot results seem to suggest that Sanders is set to coast to a dominant victory.
With six percent of delegates having been reported, Sanders has captured a resounding 54.7% of the vote.
Joe Biden is taking a distant second with 18%. It’s likely the results will lower Sanders’ final vote total, but such a strong initial showing could mean Sanders ultimately wins the caucus with close to 40% of the vote.
Sanders’ second primary victory- after having taken the popular vote in the Iowa caucuses as well- seems likely to trigger a full-blown panic among the establishment Democratic Party. Sanders has a clear path to coast to the party nomination at this point, and a victory in the upcoming South Carolina primary could all but seal the deal.
Nevada voters had the options to cast early ballots for the primary for the first time in the state’s history, with a window to vote opening last Saturday.
The Nevada caucuses were being closely monitored over concerns of election incompetence, after links between a company that developed a faulty app for the Iowa caucus were found to the Nevada Democratic Party. Sanders’ whopping initial margin of victory makes it unlikely reporting errors could prove significant enough to leave the results of the caucus in question.
