'He's not going to be the nominee.' Miami's House Dems aren't considering Bernie

Bernie Sanders may have emerged with the most votes from the first two contests in the 2020 Democratic primary, but Miamiís House Democrats echoed many lawmakers in Washington this week when they said itís far too soon to consider the prospect of a democratic socialist as the partyís nominee.

Sandersí rise has set off alarm bells in the House of Representatives, where Democrats won a majority in 2018 in part by defeating Republicans in districts President Donald Trump won in 2016.

Even asking the question about whether they would support Sanders elicited eye rolls and stone-faced stares from three of Miamiís four congressional Democrats.

ďHeís not going to be the nominee,Ē Rep. Donna Shalala said when asked if she would campaign for Sanders should he win the nomination. ďThatís hypothetical question and since I donít think heís going to be the nominee I donít have to answer the question.Ē

9. Don't know what's so funny about 29 electoral votes.. the most available singularly in 2020?

 

The MOST that are up for grabs in 2020. Sure there's other paths without Florida, but just laughing Florida off is downright stupid.

Florida is certainly a HELL of a lot more important in the GE than either Iowa or NH.

12. I'm laughing at the "He's not going to be the nominee,". That's funny

 

No one knows who the nominee will be. Until the nominee is chosen.

13. I think we Bernie supporters

 

should donate a dollar every time we hear that phrase.

Just in this place alone it would generate all kinds of cash.

Except, urm, I'm not hearing it so much any more.

Maybe Donna ought to bring herself up to speed.

16. ahh. Can't argue that.

 

Personally, I think we're overestimating our chances at all. Just going over historics, the odds definitely don't favor us.

But no excuse for not doing everything we can. Personally, I'll be canvassing for 5 hours tomorrow, 5 hours Sunday, and 9 hours on Presidents day just to help drive that point.

10. I sure hope he's not the nominee

 

I would prefer we actually defeat Trump and not hand him a unanimous electoral college win instead.
