Biden's and Sen. Warren's poor finishes in New Hampshire raise daunting questions about the future of their campaigns after both former front-runners were denied podium positions by a late-surging Amy Klobuchar.
Once national front-runners in the Democratic campaign, they were set back by New Hampshire's primary.Terms of Service Biden"doesn't excite people. He's a nice guy, but he doesn't excite people," said Dani O'Brien, a social worker based here."He's running a 2008 campaign, and it's 2020." Recognizing that he was about to face a shellacking, Biden left town for friendlier terrain in Columbia, South Carolina, where he addressed a crowd as the New Hampshire primary results came in. Feb. 12, 2020 05:56 "I hear all these experts and pundits and tell them it ain't over, man. We're just getting started," he said. At Warren's watch party in a covered tennis court near the Manchester airport, a screen displaying election results was turned off early as it became immediately apparent that the senator from neighboring Massachusetts was in for bad news. But Warren's supporters showed little sign of despair as she took the stage and told them to prepare for"another one of those long primary fights that lasts for months," while her husband, son and now-famous golden retriever, Bailey, looked on from just off stage. "Right now it is clear that Senator Sanders and Mayor Buttigieg had strong nights," she said."And I also want to congratulate my friend and colleague Amy Klobuchar for showing just how wrong the pundits can be when they count a woman out." She drew a sharper line to differentiate herself than in the past, positioning herself as the only candidate who could prevent a Democratic civil war and unify the party, warning Democrats that they couldn't repeat the"bitter" and"old divides" of the 2016 primary. Warren's campaign was bracing for another rough night and tough questions about her future.

Earlier Tuesday, Warren campaign manager Roger Lau had sent a memo to supporters arguing that no candidate was likely to consolidate the field and that anything could happen with a wide field of flawed candidates. "People who are predicting what will happen a week from now are the same people who a year ago predicted that Beto O'Rourke was a frontrunner for the nomination," he wrote. On the eve of the primary, Warren herself climbed aboard the bus that ferries her press corps and appeared wistful talking about how just 10 years ago she was a professor who spent most of her time"shouting into the wind." Now, she said, growing more determined, she had come too far and had too many people counting on her to quit. "And I don't know what the effects are, but what I do know is that I just have to keep fighting," she said."That's what it's all about. I cannot say to all those little girls, 'This got hard.'"

Amy’s is a well rounded Candidate, who Won’t Radicalize the system in an effort to save our country, by turning us into a doormat. Any Primary winner will have My vote in Nov. but sadly that will not be the case for the rest of the Party🥴; Giving tRump another term 😰 JoeBiden should drop out of the presidential race. By staying in the race he is hurting the Democrats. Sanders, Buttigieg and AmyKlobuchar have to fight it out. They are strong candidates. Trump is unbeatable though.
They have no future campaign for president. No dem can win. It's Trump2020LandslideBaby It’s only 2 states. Calm down. I sincerely hope America proves me wrong, but I believe DNC is trying too hard to beat Trump and not do the best they can for the citizens of this nation. Biden was Obama’s VP that’s about all he’s got and his age is showing. Warren... well honestly? Too much running around waving her arms. Doesn’t show much substance. Klobuchar’s military background peeks through, gives confidence, won’t melt down in crisis. imo
Media, for once stop interfering in our election. Can you hold the projections until after states other than two small, rural, white states vote? Unfollowing.
Sanders, Warren, other US senators slam Amazon safety record as dismal - Business InsiderUS senators wrote a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos severely criticizing the firm's attitude toward worker safety. These Dems are amazing..is this their plan to beat Trump..all this under purview of OSHA..what they are trying to address is unkversal healthcare in a roundabout fashion..ignoring the jobs/taxes Amazon creates/pays..their rhetoric is state mandate. Talk healthcare head on period. Amazon will be their new bff soon. Just watch. Amazon lawsuit will be Dems next Russiagate 2.0 / Ukraine 2.0. Another coup another day.
