Buttigieg Can’t Understand How Christians Could Support Trump ‘I Cannot Find Any Compatibility

One New Hampshire voter told MSNBC that its negative coverage of Sanders prompted her to vote for the Vermont senator.

The liberal senator from MA has fallen far behind her ally Sanders in the quest for support from the party's progressive wing after becoming a front-runner just three months ago, raising the stakes in Nevada.

At least six Democratic presidential contenders will meet in a pivotal debate in Nevada on Wednesday, three days before the state's voters make their picks in an unsettled and tight nominating race for the White House.

Last summer, there were almost 30 serious candidates vying for the attention of the party's supporters, but fewer than ten are still standing.

With the Nevada caucuses coming up on February 22, the super PAC committed to launch "six figure buys" in a "new effort" to introduce the senator to voters in Nevada, South Carolina and the 14 Super Tuesday states.

The super PAC was founded by Denise Feriozzi, Kristine Kippins, Karin Johanson and Kim Rogers.

Pete Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana mayor, will host a town hall in Aurora at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator from MA, will host a campaign event Sunday at 3 p.m.at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver. Yang did participate in the New Hampshire primary debate but only received 2.8% of the popular vote, which is well short of the required 15% needed to receive delegates.

US Senate approves Iran War Powers Resolution

US to evacuate Americans from cruise ship quarantined at Japan port
The U.S. charter flight will arrive in Japan Sunday evening, according to a statement from the embassy on Saturday. Nicole Ben-David told Ynet , "We didn't get any notification from the ship's crew, doctors or the embassy".


Mr Biden, counting on Nevada's diverse population to keep his campaign alive after disappointing finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, faces his biggest challenge in the Western state from Mr Sanders. If Biden manages to eke out a win in SC, it will be against the backdrop of his campaign's precipitous decline. One-third of voters under 50 years old prefer Sanders (35%), while a similar number of those aged 65 and over back Bloomberg (32%). "The reason why we are here: 99% of the African American vote hasn't spoken yet and 99% of the Latino vote hasn't spoken yet". "We want to know where the [voters] "start" and what groups are moving toward them as they gain momentum". That's bigger than the whole USA economy. After serving as Barack Obama's vice-president for eight years, he had strong name recognition and held a clear lead in national polls.

Biden's decision to bail on New Hampshire was criticized by many pundits.

A group of progressive women has formed Persist PAC, a spokesman tells CNN, and the group is now spending over $1 million to air a biography-focused television ad that links Warren to former President Barack Obama and claims Warren can "take on" President Donald Trump and "win". If Biden can't do well, especially in SC, his quest for the nomination is likely effectively over.

"It's why she'll take him on - and win", the narrator continues, over a photo of President Donald Trump.

But, like Buttigieg, the Minnesota senator has had limited appeal among voters of color thus far, and she needs to demonstrate that she can win them over. Texas has the second most delegates at stake on March 3, behind only California.

S.C. Rep. Todd Rutherford, a Richland Democrat and minority leader in the House, voiced his support for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg during a news conference at the State House.
