New Lincoln Project ad (screengrab)

The Lincoln Project, the group of top former GOP strategists seeking to remove Donald Trump and his supporters from office, has released a new video for the 2020 presidential campaign.

Directed by Jon Turteltaub, the video imagines a young Republican waking up from a three-year coma and being updated by his family about Trump illegally paying off a porn star, Mexico not paying for the wall, Trump praising white nationalists after the fatal Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally and his administration’s failed response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It would be funny if it wasn’t so true,” Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson said. “Republican Senators are doing the same mental gymnastics to justify their support of Trump. But no one is laughing.”

Chicago Tribune: Our case for Joe Biden over Donald Trump

Published

on

In our March primary endorsement of Joe Biden, we cited his moderation as a value Americans could embrace. In a field of diverse, left-leaning candidates promising free public college, student loan forgiveness, “Medicare for All,” universal child care, free rural broadband access — at times the Democratic primary resembled an Oprah Winfrey show giveaway — Democrats across the country settled on Biden.Why? Because he is viewed as a commonsense man of decency who could beat President Donald Trump. Those are, essentially, his top selling points. And they are enough for us, too, to offer a Biden e...

‘Sick of him’: Trump is bleeding desperately needed support in Republican Florida stronghold

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump is losing the support of senior voters in Florida that could spell doom in his drive to be re-elected with the defections occurring in what has previously been viewed as a Republican stronghold.

At issue, for the president who can not afford to lose Florida's 29 electoral votes, are voters in The Villages expressing displeasure with the president and admitting he has lost their trust.

According to the report those voters are now in play and are taking a hard look at Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden.
