I’m sorry you will not be president, but I understand and appreciate your decision to end your quest at this point.
Four years ago, in the 2016 Democratic primaries, you made it respectable to talk about Medicare for All, free public higher education, and raising taxes on the wealthy. You alerted America to the vast and growing gap in income, wealth, and political power, and its dangers for our economy and democracy.
This time, you’ve not only made it respectable to talk about these and other issues, such as a Green New Deal, but you’ve persuaded a majority of Americans that these problems must be addressed. You’ve given voice to the poor, working class, the undocumented, Native American – all those who have been bullied and abandoned.
You have inspired and galvanized a new generation of young Americans. You have made it possible for America to live up to its ideals. Your courage and determination have made me and countless others proud. Thank you.
May your voice, your indignation, and your moral clarity ring out for years to come.
Evangelicals don’t care about endangered GOP senators as long as they get their Ginsburg replacement: report
In a candid interview with the New York Times, the leader of a Christian-based anti-choice group admitted that she didn't care if some GOP lawmakers on the November ballot go down to defeat for supporting whomever Donald Trump, picks to fill the Supreme Court seat that belonged to the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
With Senate Republicans led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) determined to ram through an appointment before they possibly lose control of the chamber, some GOP lawmakers are looking at a vote for the replacement as a possible last act in office.
Republicans’ rush to replace Ginsburg is why they all need to be driven from office: columnist
In a column for the Washington Post, Karen Tumulty pointed out that Senate Republicans' insistence on snapping up the seat of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election -- after blocking Merrick Garland in 2016 -- is one more reason why they GOP must lose control of the Senate.
With Republican lawmakers fanning out on Sunday defending their hypocrisy on presidential election-year votes on high court nominees, Tumulty wasn't having it and called some of them out by name.
