Amid months of speculation, Stacey Abrams said that she would be “happy” to run for vice president alongside the Democratic nominee. Abrams is the 45-year-old former Democratic nominee for Georgia governor who lost a close race against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018. She has repeatedly tamped down rumors that a meeting she held in March with Joe Biden, 76, was to discuss running as his number two. Speaking at an event in Iowa on Monday, Abrams said that she would consider joining the ticket of whoever wins the nomination, according to the Daily Iowan. “You do not run in

If she got elected VP she would have to resign as governor of Georgia which would cause a constitutional crisis because Governor Kemp would most likely appoint a Republican to take her place.

Just when you think you've heard the last of her, she pops up out of nowhere offering to be the nominee's running mate. When you lose a state office by 56,000 votes, you're not bringing anything to a national ticket.

Can you believe that the USA has sunk this low that "candidates" such as fat, ugly Abrams, stupid, clueless Biden, insane, commie Sanders and, bizarre, hysterical Fauxcahontas are actually running for POTUS? How is this permitted or tolerated? Has the country gone totally insane? Why haven't they all been laughed out of the country? It's embarrassing. What would the founding fathers think?

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's success in recent polls suggests he has a big target on his back — one that, if not skillfully negotiated, could cost him the Democratic nomination. Buttigieg’s campaign is surging, just in time for Wednesday’s Democratic presidential primary debate in Atlanta. Once an obscure long shot, Buttigieg has wedged his way to the top of a field featuring Democratic candidates Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Buttigieg is leading in the Iowa polls, with 25% of voters in one survey saying he’s their first choice for president. Since September

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's night-and-day campaigns in Iowa and South Carolina clearly show both why he's such a formidable opponent and also why he remains a longshot to win the nomination. In Iowa, he surged into first place after hitting Elizabeth Warren hard on how she would pay for her massive Medicare expansion. In South Carolina, he's navigating troubling accusations that his campaign grossly overstated black support for his sweeping platform for African Americans. Here's what it means in the short term. For the first time, he's going to have a target on his back when he walks onto the

The Clinton Foundation reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records, marking the second consecutive year of losses since Hillary Clinton's humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump in 2016. The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions, a record low for the alleged "charity." That figure was well short of the foundation's total expenses for the year—$47.5 million— resulting in a net loss of $16.8 million. The previous year, the Clinton Foundation reported a net loss of $16.1 million. In total, the organization has lost a staggering $32.9 million
