Former county Republican chairwoman registers as Democrat -- to cast primary vote for Pete Buttigieg

Cindy Guerra, a former chairwoman of the Broward Republican Party, changed her party registration this week to become a Democrat.

She said she did it so she could vote for Pete Buttigieg in Florida’s March 17 Democratic presidential primary.

There are two reasons. One, Guerra is impressed with Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., who finished a close second in this week’s New Hampshire primary. “I find him very impressive. I do think he’s qualified.”

The second reason: President Donald Trump.

Tom Steyer spent $19.2 million on radio & TV ads in NH

And he won zero delegates.

Stop whining about self-funding candidates. If voters don't like the product, they won't buy it no matter how many ads they see.

Did Bernie Sanders ever apologize for supporting Fidel Castro?

A lot of voters in South Florida would like to know.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg says deadline to ratify Equal Rights Amendment has expired: 'I'd like it to star

Source: CNN

(CNN)Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a long-time supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment, suggested Monday night that the deadline to ratify the measure as a constitutional amendment has expired and that the decades long effort must start anew.

"I would like to see a new beginning," Ginsburg told an audience at Georgetown University Law Center.

"I'd like it to start over," she added.

Ginsburg was responding to a question from the moderator of the event, Judge M. Margaret McKeown of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, who asked whether there would ever be an Equal Rights Amendment on the federal level.

NV Culinary Union suggests Sanders, Warren asking union members to trade health plans for 'promises'

The politically powerful Culinary Union hasn’t yet endorsed in the Democratic presidential primary, but it is making clear which candidates it won’t be supporting.

A one-pager from the union, the kind of document usually distributed in employee dining rooms and break areas, obtained by The Nevada Independent obliquely accuses Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren of wanting to take away union members’ hard-fought and much beloved health plans and warns that electing either candidate will lead to four more years of a Donald Trump presidency.

The union, which provides health insurance to 130,000 workers and their family members through a special trust fund, strongly opposes the Medicare-for-all plans the two candidates support, which would eliminate the union’s health plan by design. 

However, until now, union leaders have directed their ire more generally at the policy than the candidates who back it.

Upstate GOP leaders plotting to impact SC Democratic primary by boosting Bernie Sanders

COLUMBIA — A group of prominent Upstate Republicans is preparing to launch a wide-scale effort this week to encourage GOP voters across South Carolina to vote for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Feb. 29 Democratic primary, The Post and Courier has learned.

The Republican plan to impact the Democratic race, emerging just weeks before the “First in the South” primary, has two goals: Boost the candidate who the Republicans believe presents the weakest general election threat to President Donald Trump and pressure Democrats to support closing state primaries in the future.

South Carolina has open primaries, meaning voters do not have to register by party and can participate in either party’s contest. But some conservative activists have long pushed to change that, arguing it would ensure a more pure party process, and they are hoping this effort will win over Democrats to that cause.

The S.C. GOP executive committee voted last year to forgo its 2020 presidential primary, so the Democratic election will be the only one held Feb. 29.
