THREAD @Dr_ColetteDavis: What happens at the #Iowa #caucus?The caucus is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, yet I wld argue that it asserts the very best of democracy. It may not work in other places, but in #Iowa, it is a Beautiful Thing. #IowaCaucus
Allow me to explain. On a cold Jan night, Iowans leave their homes & go to the high school, community center, small school house, or even a home. When I lived in Iowa City (for 12 years and three election cycles), we caucased (yes, that’s a verb) at the nearby high school.

OMG 🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤣🤣🤣

President Trump got almost 5% in an #Iowa Democrat caucus poll. He polled more than twice better than Yang and Steyer.

A Democrat caucus poll. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤣😂
Dems must be shatting themselves.
Oops pardon my grammar....he polled over two times better*

#BernieSanders part 1
1.Some of the media are in the tank for @BernieSanders has have been for years, two prime examples is Chris Hayes and Chuck Todd.
Todd´s wife's firm got millions from @BernieSanders 2016 campaign

newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/tim-g…
@BernieSanders 2.Todd´s wife also donated 2 million to @BernieSanders PAC in 2016, in exchange for what it looks like unprecedented air time on his show.

And don't reply he doesn't have PAC´s he had, and he HAS in 2020.

Look it’s no secret that I was a full fledged supporter of @CoryBooker in this race. He’s my senator, I’ve known him since his mayoral campaigns and I firmly believe he is the person to move us beyond #Trumpism so yeah I’m sad and upset right now,
But my heart is troubled today because I worry we are not as well poised to defeat @realDonaldTrump because we have lost many excellent candidates due to a combo of a bad plan re: #DemDebates and the outsized influence of money. The only reason @TomSteyer is still in is $$$
Millions of campaign ads got him the name recognition he needed. We should have let candidates on the debate stage through #Iowa and #NH and let VOTERS decide who is viable. Instead we have a small field and a white one. @CoryBooker was my top choice,

Dear #warren supporters the #KHive isn’t #toxic! The problem is you can’t handle the fact that we challenge your #WhitePrivilege! The rules always apply differently for #BlackWomen. We never get the benefit of the doubt, we’re always guilty until proven innocent! #KamalaIsACop
We saw earlier last year at the #LGBTQ forum when @lyzl asked a question about #Trans seeking sexual reassignment surgery in prison & she framed it as @KamalaHarris being untrustworthy & @ewarren being a champion on this issue while having no prior history helping tht community
When it came to #MedicareForAll @KamalaHarris was labeled a flip flopper for compromising w union workers to allows room for private healthcare. No 1 person read Kamala’s plan! Warren has gone back & forth on #MedicareForAll w no such labeling

As reported last night on @TuckerCarlson and @BreitbartNews the following (GOP) Republican Governors want to increase the number of illegals (refugees) in their state! Which of course we taxpayers will pay for!
Let’s call out those Governors shall we! Let them know how you feel about this!!

🇺🇸🗳️ Dans pile un mois, c’est le début d'une longue et palpitante saison électorale aux #EtatsUnis avec le caucus de l’#Iowa lors duquel 14 candidats vont concourir à l'investiture du parti démocrate. #primaires
🇺🇸🗳️ Au niveau national, peu d'évolutions en un an de campagne :

➡️#Biden reste en tête

➡️Les candidats de l’aile gauche #Sanders et #Warren le suivent à distance

➡️#Buttigieg est le seul autre candidat à se démarquer, les autres faisant (pour l’instant ?) de la figuration
🇺🇸🗳️ Mais les sondages nationaux ont peu d’importance à ce stade : si un candidat crée la surprise lors d’une des premières primaires, il peut impulser une dynamique à sa campagne (le « momentum ») qui l’avantagera lors des scrutins suivants.

So...after a Twitter-free, news-free day, I turn on @NBCNews and after the massive #ClimateCrisis weather and #LondonBridgeAttack stories, now a HUGE story about BIDEN in #Iowa, headlined "Biden's Big Push."
The story, by top @NBCPolitics reporter @KellyO, then cuts to "the other" candidates. @KamalaHarris is also in #Iowa, where O'Donnell reports she is battling damning press, quoting the NYT characterizing an "unravelled campaign, staff infighting, poor messaging and money woes."
In SC, @amyklobuchar is asked not about Biden's endless faltering, but about Harris. Klobuchar refuses to bite the bait, saying "all campaigns have ups and downs" and "I hope she continues and I think she will."

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

Interesting evening spent with 4 senators at a very small gathering. LOTS of optimism—fueled by internal #poll data—that we will flip the Senate.

Maine: @SenatorCollins is DOWN by 2 points. Her #Kavanaugh vote decimated her approval rating — she went from 57 to the upper-30’s.😎
Senate breakdown is 53 @GOP—47 @SenateDems + Independent.

@DougJones faces a tough re-election bid, but @jeffsessions may split the anti-Roy Moore vote. If Moore wins the primary, Jones has a great chance.

If Jones loses, we need 4-5 seats to flip—4 if we win @POTUS, 5 if not.
In Colorado, @CoryGardner is in BIG trouble. John @Hickenlooper leads by 12 points!

In #NC, @ThomTillis is literally polling in the toilet (approval rating in the 20’s!), so another great pickup opportunity for @TheDemocrats.😎

liberal social views mixed with his support for cutting the federal budget and protecting Mississippi's defense and agricultural industries.
In 2018, Espy said that he supports free trade.
Mike Espy 🔁#Mississippi US Senate candidate #Election2020-Nov-3.
believes that the decision by Republicans to deny an expansion of #Medicaid is why so many rural hospitals in Mississippi have closed. #MSpol #MS #DemSenate2020 FOLLOW>>@MikeEspyMS
Mike Espy 🔁#Mississippi US Senator #Election2020-Nov-3 opposes a border wall, citing cost concerns.He opposes the Trump administration's family separation policy and said “a solution can be found "with the right combination of common sense and compassion." #DemSenate2020

1. Trump is in Iowa. @JoeBiden likely planned his trip to be there at the same time knowing that would bait Trump into giving Joe the news cycle. Trump's first stop was at an ethanol plant. I make his crowd as less than 300. Trump in Iowa at Ethenol plant crown view as he leaves.  IMO less than 300. He likely had more in his security detail.
2. Trump about to arrive at Iowa GOP dinner. He stayed clear of the @IowaSoybeans folks he's destroying with tariffs but in a few minutes we will see how the Iowa state @GOP, whose major constituency has been economically harmed by Trump tariff policy, welcomes the #OrangeMenace.
3. Love to have somebody doing still photography there. I miss the @AP.

Biggest cheer during @iowademocrats chair @troymprice's opening remarks came after he predicted #Iowa Ds will "send @joniernst into an early retirement." #IASen #HallofFame
Sen @CoryBooker is 1st candidate to speak at #HallofFame event. (19 candidates will each have 5 minutes)
"We are being tested. This is a moral moment in America, and we must meet this test. I'm running for president because we can't take 4 more years of Donald Trump." #iacaucus
But @CoryBooker isn't just running to beat Donald Trump. That's the floor, not the ceiling. We can't just run on what we are against. Democrats need to tell people what we are for. "Every American needs health care, and make no mistake, abortion is health care." #iacaucus
