Cori Bush Defeats William Lacy Clay in a Show of Progressive Might
Quote:
The upset of the veteran congressman from St. Louis sent tremors though the Democratic establishment in Missouri and Washington, D.C.

ST. LOUIS — Cori Bush, a progressive activist and a leader of the swelling protest movement for racial justice, toppled Representative William Lacy Clay Jr. of Missouri in a Democratic primary on Tuesday, notching the latest in a stunning string of upsets against the party establishment.

Ms. Bush, 44, had captured nearly 49 percent of the vote by late Tuesday evening compared with 45.5 percent for Mr. Clay, according to The Associated Press. She had tried and failed to unseat Mr. Clay in 2018, but this year rode a surge in support for more liberal, confrontational politics within the Democratic Party amid the coronavirus pandemic and the national outcry over festering racial inequities.

Ms. Bush’s victory, which came on the same night that Missouri voters decided to expand Medicaid eligibility, was a significant milestone for insurgent progressive candidates and the groups, like Justice Democrats, that have backed them across the country. It showed that the same brand of politics that has helped young, liberal candidates of color unseat veteran party stalwarts in places like Massachusetts and New York could also resonate deep in the heartland against a Black incumbent whose family has been synonymous with his district for decades.

@Walter Hinteler,
It might be a good short term victory for progressives, but I am not sure it will be good for the democratic party. It looks like our country is headed for the two extremes fighting it out.

@revelette1,
rev, the way it is going, there maybe 2 Republican parties in the future. This means the Dems better coalesce or face the same future as is facing the Rs. Pull it up by the Center Razz

@BillW,
The way it is phrased is the center is all about incremental change so they might as well be republican since they are republican lights. The far right say the same about the center of the Republicans.

It makes me mad though about the progressives dismisses of those who have been in the fight for civil right for the long haul being dismissed. If one of the progressives was running against someone like John Lewis they would have said he was corrupted by big money and they would pooh poohed all the work he has done and continued to do (from the establishment democratic party) up almost until the day he died. He joined all those protesting now who are not all extreme progressives. When she gets in there her tone will start to sound more realistic like AOC does now.

@revelette1,
True, go against the Center to hard, nothing happens. When both parties have their Centers working you get incremental change. That's called Democracy!

Tulsi Gabbard is history. Kai Kahele just defeated her in the Hawaii primary. Good riddance. We’ll still have to see her every now and then in her inevitable role as Fox News personality, but at least her Assad-apologist ass is out of government.

Wow, you make it sound so empowering!

Oh, hold on a sec... this news just in!

Tulsi Gabbard is not a Democrat (that means she wasn't running in the Democrat primary for Kai Kahele to have defeated her) and is in fact retiring!

Quote:
State Sen. Kai Kahele (D), an active National Guard member, won the primary in Hawaii’s 2nd District on Saturday in the race to replace retiring Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D).

Kahele won the four-way primary with 76.5 percent of the vote after 68 percent of precincts had reported, according to The Associated Press.

He will face Republican Joe Akana in November.

Democrat Kai Kahele wins Hawaii primary to replace Tulsi Gabbard

I have been in the right since 1956 when I was 6 years old. With lots and lots of (as you say) "incremental" change, we are where we are today. We are ready for a major push, no doubt, but the Bernie Sanders people will get nothing for pushing to everything in one quick push. We need some large financial, social (both feminine and racial) changes in the very near future. This can only be done with control of the Presidency and both houses. It must be done with positive results all the people can see.

@McGentrix,
As usual, you and the truth are not even remote acquaintances. Gabbard is, and has been a registered Democrat since 2013. She “announced” her intention to not seek re-election to represent Hawaii’s 2nd district in October 2019, after she saw Kahele already whupping her ass in fund raising and polling. She was still trying to pretend she was a contender in the presidential election.

You are stupid if you believe this careerist power-grubber just conveniently, willingly “retired” from the governmental office spotlight she obviously covets.
At 38 years of age.

Stupid or willingly ignorant. But you defend Trump, so this is understandable.

She got her ass beaten from public service - both her 2nd district seat and her presidency dreams were taken from her.

And you and coldjoint and people who think Donald Trump is a good President think she just decided she didn’t want it anymore. Stupid or ignorant.

Just like when Trump loses and says he was cheated or that he didn’t really want it anyway - you’ll believe that, too.

Stupid and ignorant.

What an incredibly stupid thing to say. That's something the idiot in the White house would say.
No wonder you like him.

I'd love to see you say Covid is a speed bump to somebody who's lost a loved one to co-vid.
I've no doubt you'd get the slap you deserve.

170.000 dead... a speed bump...
Fuckin idiot.
