 Registered Democrats Sue to Kick Commie Bernie Sanders Off Ballot in Florida


Two Florida Democrats are suing to block Bernie Sanders from running as a Democrat in the state’s March 17 presidential primary.

In the lawsuit filed Monday in circuit court in Leon County, the plaintiffs ask that Sanders be disqualified from the Democratic primary because he’s a declared independent.

The Florida Democratic Party labeled the complaint “ridiculous,” and the Sanders campaign called it “spurious.”

The complaint also seeks to prevent state election officials from counting any votes Sanders has already received. More than 244,000 Democrats have already voted by mail in Florida.

Karen Gievers, a former circuit court judge representing Frank Bach and George Brown, both Tallahassee Democrats, said Sanders should not be allowed on the Democratic ballot.

Slow realization of the inevitable...

Bill Clinton has 'vented' to friends that Democrats face being wiped out in November if Bernie Sanders wins primary - while Barack Obama pitches 'unified support' of the nominee


Democratic Party leaders are sweating over the prospect of Democratic nominee Bernie Sanders, who might lose to President Trump in November
They're also worried about a brokered convention leading to a fractured party, if Sanders doesn't amass 50 per cent of the pledged delegates needed to win
The New York Times reported that former President Bill Clinton has been calling old friends and venting about Sanders, who he thinks will lose to Trump
The Times also reported Democrats have been asking former President Barack Obama to get involved in brokering a deal between Sanders and the party
Obama declined and on Thursday sent out a fundraising email that had a central theme of showing 'unified support' for the Democratic nominee
Superdelegates interviewed by The Times floated convention scenarios in which a candidate who's not currently running could be the nominee
Names brought up included Sens. Sherrod Brown and Kamala Harris, and also Michelle Obama as vice president

Anyone else ready to raise their hand and acknowledge
 how thankful they are that Tom Steyer dropped out?

Best take so far "(Steyer's).. mid-life crises masquerading as a Presidential campaign has ended..."

My paraphrase.

Where does a Steyer voter go now?  Bloomberg?

It’s wierd, I have seen and heard tons of Steyer commercials both on the radio and TV. Guess they have to play out the ad buy even thoug he has already dropped out... like I said about Doomberg...total waste of money but as long as it’s theirs it’s OK with me. ;D

I actually wish that the Dems would nominate a female candidate (well... other than "her").

It's time for a woman prez in office!

I'd love to have a leader like Mrs. Thatcher. My favorite Thatcher quote: "socialism works great until you run out of other people's money."

I would vote for Nikki Haley.  She would check a bunch of Dem boxes.

She'd never survive primaries, both parties are dominated by their Ralph Kramden contingent.

Now quick, to twitter to voice the outrage.

Side note: Klobuchar threw her towel in before exit polls even popped.  The establishment must be doing the hard sell.  Or she got a dose of reality in SC that made it through the campaign bubble.

The fake Trump supporter that makes comments and does not respond when I reply. Get out of here!

Buttigieg set to endorse Biden

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is set to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race one day after ending his own bid, according to a source close to the Biden campaign.

Buttigieg's planned endorsement comes as fellow moderate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) also throws her support behind Biden after dropping out of the race Monday.

The latest endorsements for Biden point to a consolidation of the moderate lane of the Democratic race in an effort to block progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from getting the nomination.

there are two realistic outcomes now for the left on this one:

1) bernie wins out and becomes the dem nominee.  millennials rejoice because free stuff, but in the end independents vote for trump because nobody wants a soviet-loving socialist to run the country.  trump wins.

2) biden is the nominee and we get hilldog 2.0. a million bernie bros cry out in despair as they decide to stay home on election day or vote for trump to spite the democrat party.  trump wins.

Big Super Tuesday question I'm looking to be answered on Wednesday AM - how many "moderates" will Bloomberg take away from Biden. Will he prevent Biden from getting enough delegates in some states like North Carolina?

Since Bernie is going to get squeezed out by the establishment again, will Biden pick Klobuchar or Mayor Pete as a VP? If not Biden as the nom, who will Bloomberg pick for VP?

We live in interesting times, don't we?
