Solely because of Donaldson lmao, if John Donaldson didn't hit 15% in California, Murphy would benefit. A bunch of Murph states became slightly less delegate Murph states, because of Donny.

Murphy and Dayton should push for proportional STV voting in the Dem Primary lmao


I'm not complaining, but yes, Murphy would be open to that.

Just looking at the polling right now, and if I may, can I just ask why the polling comes out the way it does for Arizona? Only asking because I was expecting Levi's numbers there to not be as high as they are

The Dem base in Arizona is primarily Latino. Levi is doing very well with Latinos rn. There is a high risk for underperformance though since Latinos are not reliable voters.

Dayton is doing well in the Maricopa suburbs.

So if it were a high turnout in AZ Dayton lose, vice versa for low turnout.

The irony of Anderson's tweet is that Detroit precincts(the few there are) are almost certainly going to look like an Iraqi election for Porter.

What, the endorsement or the picture?

The endorsement is because she is angry at Murphy for the perceived casual sexism in the debate. The pfp I just picked randomly.

Against Radical Richardson PAC

A front organisation disguised as a libertarian PAC, the ARR PAC seeks to have Diane Paulson or another libertarian figurehead - it is undecided yet - win the primary through a large write-in campaign by slamming Richardson from his left. Is not directly allied with the Porter campaign, nor expresses outward support for them. Advocates small government and free market capitalism, staunchly against Richardson's hard stances on abortion and cannabis, along with his xenophobia and protectionism. Is not run by Theodore Vohoffsky nor is in any way related to him.

Biography:

Sadie Volker was born on April 15th, 1991 in Jefferson City, Missouri, the only daughter and second child of recently reelected State Representative Thomas Volker and his journalist wife, Torrie, Ms Volker's childhood saw her frequently doted upon by both of her parents, living a rather comfortable existence throughout the course of her childhood, an occurrence that was only improved by her father's election to Congress in the 1994 midterms. Despite the relative comfort of her upbringing however, Sadie Volker began to develop a rather confrontational and domineering personality as a result of being raised with three brothers, thus leading her to hold a not insignificant amount of insecurities surrounding holding the affections of her parents.
It was perhaps as a result of this that Sadie performed well academically, attending the prestigious Thomas Jefferson School in St Louis with her siblings, on account of the decision by her parents that it would be best for Sadie and her siblings to be educated in Missouri. The sole Volker daughter flourished in the competitive environment of academia, regularly being a high performer with regards to her education.
It was also around this time that Sadie began to develop the beginnings of a solid political identity, having been a Republican since the age of 14, she interned at the presidential campaign of (Not-Huckabee), with some privately alleging that she had managed to secure the internship partially as a result of her mother being the campaign's press secretary and her father being one of the then-Governor's relatively few endorsers. Although the work was often repetitive, the young Volker performed well over the course of her internship, most notably sharing her mother's skill in organisation.
This, however, came to an abrupt end with the withdrawal of (Not-Huckabee) from the Republican primaries, a matter which saw Sadie become increasingly critical of recent actions by Republican administrations, as well as beginning to perceive the Republican Party as losing its conservative roots with the nomination of (Not-McCain), it was as a result of this, as well as an increasingly tense relationship with both of her parents as a result of their growing political disagreements, particularly with her mother, who she to a degree held responsible for the then-Governor's withdrawal as a result of her difficulties in handling relations with the television media.
Consequently, Sadie Volker soon after registered as a member of the Constitution Party and, in an attempt to provide herself with the opportunity to have some space from her parents, Sadie proceeded to study at Harvard University, Massachusetts majoring in psychology as well as studying communication and media studies as a minor, a decision that had the agreement of her parents in an attempt to heal the rift between them and their second-born.
Her studies at Harvard saw the estranged Sadie continue to maintain her rather strong academic performance, channeling the ill temper regarding her estrangement with her parents into furthering her academic success, as well as to becoming increasingly outspoken on political issues, a matter which whilst establishing the young Volker as an effective debater in her own right didn't endear her to her fellow students and colleagues as a result of her rather supercilious disposition in debating. Nevertheless, Sadie Volker graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 2013.
Returning to the US in the same year, the recently graduated Volker proceeded to study for a MA in media and strategic communication at George Washington University, whilst studying at GWU, Ms Volker finding an affinity the media, more specifically the medium of 24 hour television news and online journalism that had sprung up since the beginning of the 21st Century, found work at Fox News television, specifically in the still-fledgling Lone Wolf television show, a position which the young Volker relished in, particularly as a result of working under Arnold Wolf Sr, who in the time she had graduated High School and had studied at Harvard had become a rising figure amongst the wider conservative movement in the US as well as causing Ms Volker to perceive the Republican Party as shifting to the rightwards once more, thus causing her to return to the Republican Party in 2015 during her final year at GWU.
Following her graduation from GWU, Sadie Volker was soon after employed as a political correspondent by Breitbart News, which had experienced a growth in readership following the announcement of Arnold Wolf’s campaign for the Republican nomination in 2016. Soon after, Sadie was sent to cover the campaign trail, largely covering the Wolf campaign and becoming one of its most regular correspondents.
The young Volker’s correspondence of the 2016 campaign were largely well received amongst the Wolf base, particularly with her emphasis on the campaign’s core policies of immigration reduction and the withdrawal of American forces overseas and putting an end to the era of ‘nation-building’ whilst imitating the confrontational and pugilistic tone of the candidate himself. Something which following the victory of Arnold Wolf Sr on election night, did much to increase the young Sadie’s profile amongst the conservative movement and particularly its Wolfist elements.
The last three years have seen Sadie Volker perform well at Breitbart, regularly acting as one of the President’s staunchest defenders through her consistently favourable coverage of its policy throughout its tenure. It was perhaps as a result of this that Miss Volker was promoted to the position of White House Correspondent at Breitbart at the beginning of 2019, allowing the conservative firebrand the opportunity to have direct access to the administration in comparison to beforehand.
However, her promotion has led to Sadie being sidelined by many of her colleagues at Breitbart on the basis of her extreme self-assuredness as well as accusations that she had advanced so far due to her surname. Feelings which had been exacerbated by the announcement of President Wolf’s diagnosis and subsequent resignation at the end of the year, thus leaving Sadie Volker considering the future of the Wolfist movement, and that of herself.
