  • Jones on Worley separating Alabama Dems from DNC: ‘Just silly’ – Yellowhammer News

    “It’s from the national group that any state party exists,” he told interviewer Sean Sullivan.

    Jones’ comment stands in opposition to Nancy Worley’s assertion on “Capitol Journal” that the group led by England, and backed by Jones and the DNC, is the “federal Democratic Party.” Worley contends she still leads the “state democratic executive committee.”

    When Sullivan asked Jones about Worley’s remarks, Jones said “it’s just silly, it’s just a silly comment” before listing more evidence for England’s chairmanship over Worley’s.

This most recent back-and-forth between Jones and Worley continues a fight that started in August 2018 when Jones backed his ally Peck Fox’s attempt to oust Worley from her position as state chair.

Michigan Democratic Party Bashes Black Senate Contender For ‘Far-Right’ Anti-Abortion Stances – The Daily Caller

A Michigan Democratic spokesman bashed GOP U.S. Senate contender John James for his anti-abortion stances and called James’s opinions on abortion “far-right.” Michigan Democrats have attacked James over his anti-abortion policies and launched a website titled “John James Revealed” that discusses “erasing his toxic record.” James is the top GOP recruit who is running for Senate in 2020, MLive.com reported Saturday, and Michigan is a vital state in deciding which party controls the Senate. James is running against Democratic Michigan Sen. Gary Peters.

The Chronicles of Nunes: How His Impeachment Speeches Created an Alternate Reality for GOP – The Daily Beast

House Democrats’ public impeachment hearings were designed to each day tell a new chapter in the same story. Over the course of a week, a dozen witnesses paraded through the grand room on Capitol Hill where the inquiry unfolded, each one testifying to different aspects of President Trump’s apparent campaign to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate his political rivals.

Christopherson: Utah Democrats Play a Critical Role in Moderating Conservative Leadership – Daily Utah Chronicle

As a resident of Salt Lake City and a student at the University of Utah, I’m constantly surrounded by people who share my liberal values — in school, at my job and even within my religious congregation. While canvassing for Ben McAdams last fall, it seemed everyone whose door I knocked was planning to vote for him or already had. Dozens of the yards I approached had signs reading “In This House We Believe: Black Lives Matter. Women’s Rights Are Human Rights. No Human is Illegal. Science is...

Two North Texas congressional races could chart new political course – The Dallas Morning News

On Trump impeachment, divisions between urban and rural Democrats – Reuters

Axne, 54, avoided any mention of impeachment until one of her constituents, a Democrat who voted for her, said he views the investigation as a waste of time and money: “Let’s not vote for impeachment. Let’s get stuff done. I’m sick of it!”, he bellowed. Others nodded in agreement. Meanwhile, 1,000 miles away in the old industrial town of Wharton, New Jersey, freshman U.S. congressman Tom Malinowksi was treated like a rock star when he told a crowd of about 150 he believed the evidence to impeach Trump was overwhelming. With each mention of impeachment and denunciation of Trump, Malinowski was greeted with loud applause from voters packed into a tiny library basement, where the room hummed with talk of ousting the president. These two freshman lawmakers flipped districts from Republican control in the 2018 midterm congressional elections, two of the 41 net gains that helped Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 2011. Yet on impeachment, as they face close fights for their seats again next November, their approach is starkly different. Axne avoids any mention of it; Malinowski leans into the topic.
