Poll: Democrats have edge over Republican front-runner in Va. governors race[BIG edge over repubs!]

RICHMOND ó Widespread opposition to President Trump and his policies has heightened the challenge for Republicans hoping to retake the Virginia governorís mansion this year, with GOP front-runner Ed Gillespie trailing both Democratic contenders by double digits in a new Washington Post-Schar School poll.

The Virginia governorís race offers a significant test of how much Trumpís sagging job approval ratings could hurt Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections and gauges whether anti-Trump activism will benefit Democrats. Although the general election isnít until November, the poll suggests a hostile environment for Republicans.....

Hillary Clinton's Newest Consultant Was A Major Keystone Lobbyist

The newest hire for Hillary Clintonís presidential campaign is a longtime strategist who played a key role in her 2008 primary defeat while working for then-Sen. Barack Obama.
Heís also a Washington lobbyist who lobbied the State Department -- led, at the time, by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- on behalf of the company seeking to build the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.
Clinton's new consultant, Jeff Berman, has followed, in many respects, a well-worn path for those in Washington D.C. He spent a large chunk of his career in the public sector before a stint on K Street, and now he's back again. When Clinton hired Berman for his current role, it was seen as something of a coup, because he's known as a master of the mechanics of the primary process.

Netroots Nation Phoenix: Hillary Clinton to miss convention of liberal activists, bloggers

PHOENIX - Hillary Rodham Clinton is not expected to appear at Netroots Nation, an annual convention of liberal activists and bloggers who are often courted by Democratic presidential candidates.

Organizers of the event say Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley have confirmed to appear at the mid-July conference in Phoenix.

Clinton's campaign is citing a scheduling conflict for her absence, saying the Democratic front-runner is already scheduled to speak in Iowa and Arkansas that weekend.

About 3,000 activists are planning to attend the convention, which will also feature Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who many liberals had hoped would challenge Clinton in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries.
