In Virginia, one other win for a Biden-style candidate

WASHINGTON – The veteran, familiar, and moderately respected candidate has just won Virginia’s Democratic primary for governor. Convincing.

And if that sounds familiar, this is it: Former Governor Terry McAuliffe won more than 60 percent of Tuesday’s primary, following current Governor Ralph Northam (who got 56 percent in the 2017 state primary) and President Joe Biden (who got 53 percent in the 2020 presidential primary).

Also known: Like Biden, McAuliffe was just as popular (or even more) with black voters than the actual black candidates.

Now comes the real comparison this fall, when McAuliffe takes on Republican Glenn Youngkin in the 2021 political race.

But McAuliffe’s success last night begs this question: why aren’t more Democrats embracing Biden’s brand, especially in the early months of his presidency? (After all, how many times have you heard the phrase, “I’m a Joe Biden Democrat.”)

We understand: Biden – and McAuliffe and Northam, to a lesser extent – doesn’t exactly suit younger, more progressive, and diverse Congressional Democrats and Democratic candidates.

But consider:

  • In 2020, Biden ran ahead of most Democratic candidates in competitive states and districts.
  • autopsy after this autopsy found that “socialism” and “debilitating the police” harmed the democratic candidate.
  • And NBC’s Sahil Kapoor reports on recent focus group findings that voters have difficulty describing what the Democratic Party stands for.

But the Joe Biden Coalition – from Abigail Spanberger and Conor Lamb to Jim Clyburn and Val Demings (which it officially announced) Senate offer this morning) – was a strong and successful coalition for the Democrats.

Why don’t more Democrats take it?

Terry McAuliffe sure did.

On the other hand, another question arises: is Biden’s trademark transferable at all?

Or does it only apply to Dems like the President (and McAuliffe) who have one foot in the older Democratic Party and another in the newer version?

Democratic turnout in Virginia exceeds expectations

With most (if not all) of the votes counted in the Democratic governor’s primary in Virginia last night, the turnout was over 480,000.

That’s more than the 2009 Democratic gubernatorial area code (319,168) but lower than the 2017 Democratic area code (542,858).

But that the turnout of the Democrats yesterday even came close to what it was in the first year of Trump’s presidency, is touted by party strategists.

We didn’t see that in a relatively sleepy preliminary round with few attacks and crazy twists and turns.

Infrastructure talks collapse: who didn’t see this coming?

“President Joe Biden’s infrastructure talks with Republicans failed on Tuesday,” said the leading GOP negotiator Sahil Kapur, Leigh Ann Caldwell and Julie Tsirkin. from NBC.

“‘I spoke to the president this afternoon and he ended our infrastructure negotiations,” Senator Shelley Moore Capito, RW.Va., said in a statement.

“The end of the talks will put pressure on the Democrats to pass a comprehensive package with a special procedure that does not require Republican votes in the Senate.”

How Eric Adams, Mayoral Candidate, Blended Cash and Political Ambition

In interviews, several real estate personalities said that Mr. Adams’s campaign contributions were not only transactional but reflected his general support.

Understand the NYC Mayoral Race

    • Who is running for mayor? There are more than a dozen people in the running to become New York’s next mayor, and the primary is on June 22nd. Here is an overview of the candidates.
    • What is a ranking poll? New York City started voting in the primary this year, and voters can list up to five candidates in order of preference. Confused? We can help.

Regardless of the exact dynamic, by the time his campaign was submitted in March, Mr. Adams had amassed at least $ 937,000 from developers, property managers, architects, contractors, and more. This represented more than a third of his total private contributions, excluding public matching funds, research shows, and included money from developers of luxury buildings in gentrifying neighborhoods.

(To qualify for public matching funds under a new city program, Mr. Adams’ campaign voluntarily returned more than $ 300,000 of that money to the real estate industry – including sharing several donations referred to in this article – because they have exceeded the contribution limits of the program.)

Early supporters of Mr. Adams’ mayoral offer included Mr. Schwartz, the co-founder of the Slate group.

On May 25, 2018, a subsidiary of Slate filed a land use application in the city to erect a 40-story tower on a wedge-shaped lot in downtown Brooklyn that spans approximately 24 stories. Mr. Adams would have to provide an opinion on the proposed zone change.

Three weeks after filing, on the evening of June 13th, Mr. Schwartz hosted the fundraiser for Mr. Adams in his office on East 29th Street. According to the participants, Mr. Schwartz organized the event and personally invited guests.

Mr. Schwartz, who was on the city’s business list, distanced himself and Slate from the event. He didn’t personally contribute; He last donated $ 320 to Mr. Adams’ campaign in 2015. And he sent the invitation on behalf of a management company that operates in the same offices as Slate. The invitation – in blue, yellow, and white with the “Eric Adams 2021” logo – suggested contributions ranging from $ 300 for a “friend” to $ 1,000 for a “sponsor”.

Several of Mr. Schwartz’s vendors donated: a demolition company gave $ 2,000, a real estate attorney gave $ 2,500, and an equipment maker gave $ 5,000.
