South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s campaign has come a long way from its humble roots. Over the past few weeks, Buttigieg has brought on a host of new staffers to bolster his rapidly growing operation. The campaign recently snagged Hillary for America alum George Hornedo as national delegate director. And, with a swagger more often seen in Silicon Valley startups, it’s even hired something called a “chief innovation officer” — former Google senior engineer Ann Mei Chang — and a creative director, Obama White House alum Jillian Maryonovich. The campaign has also bolstered its communications staff, led by hard-charging

Alfred E. Neuman for president! That's how seriously his candidacy should be taken. Anal sex is not a qualification for the presidency.

Staff up with people who know how to pronounce your name in the politically correct fashion of the day. I was informed by an LGBTQWERTY teachers' Union acquaintance that it's supposed to be Boot Judge, not Butt Gig, so step one is to tell us deplorables whether it's Boot or Butt.

Last month in Manhattan, Beto O’Rourke held a private reception for supporters who had paid the maximum amount to his campaign or brought in as much as $25,000 by persuading others to do the same. (Snip) Across the Democratic field, candidates are embracing the big donors they distanced themselves from early on — a sign of increasing doubt that the small, online donations the campaigns have been chasing will be sufficient to sustain two-dozen primary contenders. Many of the candidates previously had held a handful of high-dollar fundraisers or avoided them altogether, seeking to tap into the populist sentiment that

Eight mountain climbers from the same expedition group, including two Americans, have gone missing in the Indian Himalayan Mountains, triggering a desperate search-and-rescue effort. The group, led by notable British climber Martin Moran, left Munsiyari, India, on May 13 to set out for the Nanda Devi base camp, according to Govind Prasad, from the Pithoragarh, India, Disaster Management Office. The group was reported missing on May 31, according to Prasad. At 25,643 feet, Nanda Devi is the 23rd-highest mountain in the world and the second-highest in India. The eight climbers who are missing are: Moran, John McLaren, Rupert Whewell and

Turns out the people of Oakland, Calif. love plans. Or, at least, the 6,500 people who showed up to presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s town hall sure do. Warren, the “I have a plan for that” candidate drew an impressive crowd at Oakland’s Laney College. As one attendee, Rachel Johnson-Farias, told the San Jose Mercury News, “She’s the only politician right now with a concrete plan—and she has a concrete plan for everything.” Crowds wrapped around the block and the event start was delayed by an hour to allow everyone in.

California knows about fault lines. And political observers in the Golden State say the Democrats’ proposed Green New Deal may be a fault line that splits the party’s support – in California and elsewhere. The environmental high-mindedness of the plan for combatting climate change – put forth by Democratic U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ed Markey of Massachusetts – appeals to the “elite” professionals the party has been courting for years. But the potential disruption for the American labor, in which untold numbers of employees might have to transition from “old economy” jobs to “green economy” jobs, may be offputting for

The sky was blue, and then it wasn’t. Storm clouds blotted out the afternoon sun, turning the day into night. On Capitol Hill, in downtown restaurants and Metro cars, phones blared an emergency alert in unison: Seek shelter. Avoid windows. Office workers crowded at their windows anyway to watch the rain lash the streets and the trees bow in submission. And then, all of a sudden, it was over. Shopkeepers swept water out of doorways. The sun was back, and the air was mild and full of the chirping of birds. Life in Washington resumed as if nothing had happened.

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ star appears to be dimming as other Democrats rise past her while she struggles to gain a footing among likely voters. The junior U.S. senator from California was one of the first Democrats to launch a White House bid, raising at the time an astonishing $1.5 million in just 24 hours while attracting tens of thousands of supposed supporters to a rally in Oakland.(Snip) Political experts told the Los Angeles Times that part of the reason why Harris' campaign has stalled is that she has failed to make a succinct case for her candidacy, beyond

President Donald Trump’s approval rating reached its highest level in two years, according to a new poll from Harvard CAPS/Harris, which suggests in its analysis that consumer confidence in the economy is likely a contributing factor. Forty-eight percent of voters surveyed said they approve of the job Trump is doing as president, which is the highest approval rating captured by the Harvard poll since June 2017. Trump’s disapproval rating was just slightly higher at 52 percent, as first reported by The Hill. The survey, which was conducted between May 29 and 30, notes that the good economy could be spurring

Opening his speech to British parliamentarians in 2011, President Barack Obama said, “I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall." It is an honor that will not be extended to President Trump next week during his first state visit to Britain, one of a number of differences from the trips made by his predecessors. British and American officials have played down concerns about protests and insist that Trump is being afforded every bit of the usual hospitality — from dinner with the queen to bilateral talks with Theresa May, the prime minister.

A decision to not cap the total amount of property that homeless people can keep on Skid Row was announced last Wednesday and it sparked fury among some officials who say it will ‘only perpetuate the public health crisis that already exists’ there. That, coupled with the news a Los Angeles police detective has been diagnosed with typhoid fever, has sparked concern among LA’s residents.

President Trump was interviewed on Friday by a reporter from British tabloid The Sun and showed surprise when he was told that Meghan Markle had made some critical remarks about him in 2016. She had said Trump was “misogynistic” and “divisive,” adding that she would move to Canada if he won the election.He was not told what Markle had said, but the President sidestepped the snare laid by the reporter and replied simply, “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”Markle has since moved to England after marrying Prince Harry, but apparently, her distaste for President Trump remains,

In a half-hour at the lectern, his remarks ranged from emotional tributes to his audience and their personal endurance to condemnations of President Donald Trump.“It’s wrong and it is immoral what they’re doing,” Biden said of the Trump administration.

Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks. Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994.

President Trump and his defenders can successfully attack former Special Counsel Robert Mueller or congressional Democrats on impeachment – but not both. The independent voters who will decide the 2020 election don’t have time for multiple sets of arguments. Moreover, independent voters have limited interest in all things political. So the president and his advocates should keep it simple and focus on Congress, not Mueller, who resigned Wednesday. Mueller didn’t say anything when he spoke to journalists Wednesday that hadn’t already appeared in his report. That was the point of his news conference.
