A well-known U.S. Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is polling at an embarrassingly low level, trailing other Democrats with little-to-no experience in national politics.

CNN’s Ryan Struyk posted the results of the latest Monmouth poll, showing Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) way down at the bottom of the field.

She trails former San Antonio, Texas mayor Julian Castro, Californian entrepreneur Andrew Yang who has become something of an internet meme recently, South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), who has not even declared his candidacy.

Former Vice President Joe Biden tops the list of candidates, despite not having announced his candidacy, either. The Monmouth poll also shows that Americans still have plenty of love for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who is polling in second place.

As for Gillibrand, she found herself embroiled in a #MeToo style scandal late Sunday and early Monday.

Big League Politics reported:

A U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful kept an aide on her staff despite multiple accusations of sexual harassment, according to several Monday report.

“The military adviser to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 presidential candidate who has been an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a campaigner against sexual misconduct in the military, kept his job despite allegations he sexually harassed a junior female aide,” according to Washington Examiner.

The female aide and alleged victim of the misconduct resigned in protest over the way Gillibrand handled her complaints. She is described as mid-20’s, married and apparently Gillibrand officiated her wedding.

The military advisor, who has now been terminated, is Abbas Malik. He was only fired after media inquiries into his alleged misconduct.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

Published

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
