Barack Obama has come out of relative political hiding to endorse an array of Democratic candidates in the midterm elections.

The former president released the list of 81 candidates on Twitter Wednesday — in elections as large in scale as Governor, as well as smaller races such as State Senate.

“I’m confident that, together, they’ll strengthen this country we love by restoring opportunity, repairing our alliances and standing in the world, and upholding our fundamental commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility, and the rule of law,” Obama said of his picks. “But first, they need our votes.”

I am glad to see Obama using his influence, and constantly increasing popularity to support Democratic candidates. 

This is going to be one of the mt consequential elections of our lifetimes and we need him involved as much as possible.

      ‘The state’s most recent waiver was granted in 2013 by President Obama, and it allows California to limit carbon emissions and require automakers to sell a certain number of low-emission and zero-emission vehicles in the state.

      “Attempting to revoke California’s greenhouse gas standards runs directly counter to the administration’s professed support for states’ rights, and undermines their ability to help achieve America’s climate pledge,”’

      “burning more gas will make cars safer and cleaner.

      You read that correctly. Former Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt argued back in April that actually, new vehicles would be better for the environment if they weren’t held to Obama-era miles-per-gallon standards. Fewer regulations would make new vehicles cheaper, he reasoned, and that would encourage people to leave behind older, dirtier models faster. As a side bonus, more people would also be in safer, newer cars. And now, according to the AP, the administration has added an idea to that vision: “people will drive less if their vehicles get fewer miles per gallon, lowering the risk of crashes.” “

    Very disappointed with the Obama’s. They have NOT supported Robert “Beto” O’Rourke in his run against Ted Cruz.
    Beto is a truly progressive democrat and it’s sad to see that no support is being thrown his way from either Barack or Michelle.

    “She Took On Betsy DeVos. Now She Wants To Unseat GOP Rep. Don Young.
    It’s a long shot, but Alaska independent Alyse Galvin is raising lots of money and just might catch the Democratic wave.”
    “DeVos was ultimately confirmed. But she barely got through, and it was partly due to Galvin’s efforts. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) was one of two GOP senators to vote no, which forced Vice President Mike Pence to come in to break a tie vote. Murkowski said she made her decision after an outpouring of disapproval from Alaskans.” “To reach some of those far-flung towns, Galvin has been driving around the state in a 20-year-old RV holding “roving town halls,” setting up shop in parking lots and inviting locals into the RV for cookies, hot chocolate and conversation. Most talks center on jobs and health care, she said, which reflects the grim reality that Alaska has the highest unemployment and highest health care costs in the nation.”
    ““Most people assume Young will win,” said Dr. Amy Lovecraft, a political science professor at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. “It’s his race to lose.””Young’s arrogance and old guy antics play well in Alaska.” “Galvin’s independent status could also resonate since, incredibly, more than 50 percent of registered Alaska voters are “undeclared” or “nonpartisan.” She also simply represents change. The past few years have been brutal for Alaska budget matters, particularly in education, a topic that Galvin can own. The Me Too movement has also hit Alaska, and Galvin could certainly put a fresh spotlight on women’s issues.
    She’s already touting her all-female congressional campaign team on her Facebook page with the caption “Working women run Alaska and they run this campaign.”

    “Senate Democrats have announced a plan to force a vote on legislation that would kill Trump’s junk insurance plans rule and protect coverage for people with preexisting conditions.”
    “Senate Democrats are fighting to make sure that people can get quality, affordable health care instead of the junk that Donald Trump is trying to pass off as health insurance. Democrats are also battling to make sure that millions of Americans with preexisting conditions can keep their insurance coverage. Past polling has revealed that health care is the top issue on the minds of voters as they head to the polls.”
