Go vote today!

After seeing the presidency up close for eight years, the most important thing I’ve learned about the job is this: How a president focuses their time and energy in office is a direct reflection of the life they lived before entering the White House. A president’s policies are a direct reflection of their values.

I know Joe. He’s a good man who understands the struggles of everyday folks.

When he was a kid, his dad lost his job, and their family had to move to find work. As a young man, he quit his job at a law firm to serve as a public defender, protecting the rights of those who couldn’t defend themselves. Joe continued to serve this country even in the face of unimaginable tragedy, losing his wife and baby daughter—and later in his life, his eldest son. He relied on his deep faith to carry him through, never growing cynical, and always willing to see the humanity in us all.

Joe has lived his life guided by values and principles that mirror ones that most Americans can recognize. It is that spirit and determination that will make Joe the kind of president we need right now. One who will continue to put the needs of the country before his own, who will get our economy back on track, and will ensure that all families can get back on their feet.

Let's go elect Joe Biden as our next president.

Washington Post: Trump campaign had social distancing stickers removed before Tulsa rally

Trump's campaign directed the removal of thousands of "Do Not Sit Here, Please!" stickers from seats in the Bank of Oklahoma Center in the hours before the Tulsa rally. Then on the day of the rally, when event staff had already placed the stickers on nearly every other seat in the 19,000-seat arena, the Trump campaign told event management to stop and then began removing the stickers.

President Donald Trump's campaign directed the removal of thousands of "Do Not Sit Here, Please!" stickers from seats in the Bank of Oklahoma Center in the hours before the President's much anticipated Tulsa rally, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads!

My dad instilled a lot in me, but perhaps most important is the belief that there’s no higher calling than to be a good parent. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads working to help raise their children — and all our children — to be honorable, generous, and kind.

G.O.P. Platform, Rolled Over From 2016, Condemns the ‘Current President’

The RNC has chosen to roll over it's 2016 platform till 2024. The problem? It bashes the "current administration" which in 2016 was Obama but it now Trump.

After the Republican National Committee kept outdated language from four years ago, when Barack Obama was still president, the party’s platform includes more than three dozen unflattering references to those in power at the White House.

Biden's in one of the best positions for any challenger since scientific polling began

Biden is in one of the best positions for any challenger since scientific polling began in the 1930s. There were more than 40 national public polls taken at least partially in the month of May that asked about the Biden-Trump matchup. Biden led in every single one of them. He's the first challenger to be ahead of the incumbent in every May poll since Jimmy Carter did so in 1976. Carter, of course, won the 1976 election. Biden's the only challenger since then to have the advantage in every May poll over an elected incumbent in the polling era.

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden clearly ahead of President Donald Trump. Biden's up by a 53% to 43% margin among registered voters in this survey.

Group endorses Latino Democratic candidates who may make history, boost Hispanic turnout

Great article about mobilizing the Latino vote. One of our members is running for a seat in the state legislature in Pennsylvania. "Del Valle, running in a Philadelphia district that is 11 percent Latino, is the son of a father who emigrated from Cuba and mother who emigrated from Colombia. He grew up with many cousins and other relatives who were also immigrants."

The Latino Victory Fund endorsed candidates such as Ricky Hurtado, who grew up in rural North Carolina and could be the first Latino elected to the state's House.
