As usual, when discussing the Democratic primaries, my disclosure that, were I voting today, I would vote Warren.
I had heard about part of this story, but this is really bad for Biden (boldface mine):
Centrist Democrat Joe Biden campaigned in October for Republican Rep. Fred Upton just ahead of the midterms.
Biden, who is considering a 2020 run for the presidency, did so at a time when Democrats were desperate to take control of the House and gain some power to stop Trump.
This, I had heard about. Not good. Especially since Upton is opposed to legal and safe abortion. But it gets worse:
The New York Times reports that Biden was paid $200,000 to speak at a rally in Benton Harbor, and he and the GOP were successful as Upton edged Democrat Matt Longjohn by four points.
How is this remotely acceptable? It’s bad enough he campaigned for him, but to get paid to do it?
Considering some Democrats get bent completely out of shape over whether or not Sanders is a real Democrat, if Sanders had done this, they would be howling for him to drop out.
They would be correct in doing so, too.
