Two maps showing what happens if we take WI, MI and PA. Go to the website make your own maps.

Biden is best equipped to rebuild the blue wall. He can appeal to those voters both in terms of moderation and geography. Also next time you are hating on Manchin or other conservadem Senators...look at the map and consider how limited our options are in holding a majority in the Senate without which we will get no judges and no policy.


The first map shows no path for an electoral college win for Trump when we win WI,MI and PA


The second map shows what happens when we don't win WI, MI and PA.

Watching MSNBC Chris Matthews Biden story. Anyone else?

Biden is a great man and will make a great president. I had no idea how hard it was to get the violence against women act. Passed. His compassion shines through.

For those who have questions about VP Biden and important issues...

'On Monday, January 21, 2019, Vice President Biden, the Chair of the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware, delivered remarks and was honored with the Lifetime of Excellence in Public Service Award at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day breakfast hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network. His remarks were focused on the importance of protecting civil rights, be it through protesting racism perpetuated by the alt-right or protecting voting rights from voter suppression. Read Vice President Biden's full remarks here.'

Tim Ryan announces... Times says two winning strategies:

one through the rustbelt and one through Texas/ South. Tim Ryan could win Ohio...if he wins Ohio Trump loses . No Republican has ever won the general without Ohio.

'Democratic strategists see two paths to victory in 2020: winning back Midwestern states like Wisconsin and Michigan that narrowly went for Trump in 2016 or southern states with changing demographics such as Georgia and Texas.

You can put Tim Ryan firmly in the former camp.

The eight-term Congressman, who launched his presidential campaign Thursday on social media and on the talk show “The View,” represents the former industrial hub of Youngstown, Ohio, and he made clear that will be his primary selling point.

In tone and in substance, Ryan laid down a marker that he is going to focus on the working class voters.'
