The Fix is In: Amy Klobachar Quits Dem Primary, She & Mayor Pete to Endorse Joe Biden to Stop Bernie

The establishment is coalescing around Joe Biden.

Sen. Amy Klobachar (D-MN), the establishment-friendly moderate who billed herself as the uniter needed to defeat President Donald Trump in this year’s election, is out of the Democrat presidential primary.

Klobachar quit the primary on Monday, shortly after South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg also threw in the towel. These withdrawals come after former Vice President Joe Biden’s domination in the South Carolina primary this weekend. Both candidates are expected to formally endorse Biden today.

“Klobuchar outlasted several better-known and better-funded Democrats, thanks to a better-than-expected third-place finish in in New Hampshire. But she couldn’t turn that into success elsewhere, as she struggled to build out a campaign that could compete across the country and had poor showings in the next contests,” the Associated Press wrote about Klobachar’s sudden departure from the race.

The Democrat establishment has apparently picked Biden as their best chance to defeat Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), despite his frequent gaffes on the campaign trail and his incredibly poor showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“You launched Bill Clinton, Barack Obama to the presidency. Now you launched our campaign on the path to defeating Donald Trump,” Biden said after his victory in South Carolina on Saturday.

“My buddy Jim Clyburn! You brought me back!” he added.

Biden took shots at Sanders, the independent candidate who has emerged as an unlikely front-runner in the race.

“If the Democrats want a nominee who’s a Democrat—a lifelong Democrat—a proud Democrat—an Obama-Biden Democrat—then join us!” Biden said.

“Most Americans don’t want the promise of revolution. They want more than a promise, they want results,” he added.

If it wasn’t obvious enough that Biden is the choice of the Democrat Party establishment, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has come out with an endorsement of Biden as well.

“Democrats need a candidate who can assemble the largest, most diverse coalition possible to defeat Trump and lead our country following the trauma of Trump’s presidency,” Reid said in a statement released on Monday. “That candidate is Joe Biden.”

Billionaire oligarch Mike Bloomberg and Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) remain in the race as mainstream candidates who could dilute the vote from Biden. Sanders still has a strong chance to be the Democrat’s presidential nominee, but the establishment will not make it easy for him heading into the all-important Super Tuesday, which is tomorrow.

Republican Voter Registration is Surging in Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the Runup to the November Election

This is even more important than polls.

Published

The Republican Party is handily registering more voters than Democrats in the critical swing states of Florida, Arizona, and Pennsylvania in the advance of the 2020 presidential election, a strong sign for the GOP in the competitive states.

Republicans have registered more than 135,000 voters to their party than Democrats have since 2016, a handy lead in a state in which the margin of victory was 44,000. Pennsylvania is probably the most critical state in the 2020 election.

Republicans have registered a strong plurality of the new voters to register in Arizona since August, with 43% of these voters aligning as Republican. 26% have registered as Democrats, and 29% registered with no party affiliation or with another political party.

President Trump won the southwestern state by 4.5% in 2016, with rapid population growth and immigration turning Arizona into a purple state.

Republicans appear to be crushing Democrats in decisive fashion in the voter registration struggle in Florida, registering a whopping 41% more voters than the Democrat Party is in the state. The GOP registered 58,000 new Republican voters in August alone, a 91% increase when compared to August of 2016. Leading Democrats have even been sounding the alarm in the state, having lost it in 2016 with a far greater numerical voting lead then they’ll have this time.

The Joe Biden campaign has largely refrained from traditional political activism and door-knocking in the state, preferring to let their candidate speak through appearances on Sunday shows and softball interviews.

If the President wins these three states, he’s in an extremely strong position for victory, even if Biden wins Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. He’d need to hold North Carolina and Ohio to end up with 274 electoral college votes in this scenario.

These statistics are more pertinent than polls with highly questionable methodologies and flawed participant selection methods.
