    2020 WATCH -- "Avenatti would base his 2020 campaign in St. Louis," by Natasha Korecki: "He hasn't decided yet if he's running for president, but Michael Avenatti has already made a strategic 2020 decision. The attorney will base his national presidential campaign headquarters in St. Louis should he launch a White House bid, he told POLITICO on Sunday. ... He believes he'll be the first presidential candidate to headquarter in St. Louis since Dick Gephardt's 1988 presidential run (Gephardt's 2004 campaign was based in D.C.)." POLITICO

    pretty sure Avenatti has decided he wants to run for Prez .. he is waiting to see if he will get the support of the old guard, the DNC etc ..

    he figured out how to neutralize the ignoramus, by punching the scumbag in the face non stop and making no apologies for it.. in trump world a man that apologizes is weak and if you'r weak you lose... well Avenatti has been winning by punching the old man where it hurts most

    2020 WATCH -- "Hickenlooper moves closer to 2020 presidential bid," by David Siders in San Francisco: "Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is edging closer to a potential run for president, following what he called an 'encouraging' summer mulling a campaign. 'What I saw was an interest ... a genuine interest in terms of what we've done in Colorado,' Hickenlooper told POLITICO late Thursday.



    "Hickenlooper, one of several current and former Democratic governors considering running in 2020, said he has not yet made a decision about the race. But in a sign that his political operation is ramping up, he will travel to the Southeast this month to help the campaigns of Democratic gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia.



    "If he runs, Hickenlooper, a former pub owner and Denver mayor, would start with a relatively low profile. But many other prospective candidates — especially from outside Washington — will face a similar challenge, and Hickenlooper suggested it is not insurmountable." POLITICO

    Ramping up the pressure on Elizabeth Warren who's been keeping her counsel.............There isn't room for both of them.......



    Sanders allies expect him to make second White House bid
    Allies to Bernie Sanders say the Vermont Independent senator is increasingly likely to make a second bid for the White House in 2020 — once again as a Democrat.

    Sanders allies increasingly talk more confidently about the likelihood of a second presidential bid. Just a few months ago, the allies were more careful about his potential candidacy.

    "HUGE lesson for Dems in 2020 from the primary results," Josh Kraushaar, National Journal's politics editor, tweets this morning:

    • There's a "limited audience for a white progressive (like Warren/Sanders) outside of a narrow ideologically-driven base ... huge opportunity for someone like Kamala Harris to build multi-racial coalition."

    Josh elaborates on this dynamic in his "Against the Grain" column, "Identity, Not Ideology, Driving the Democratic Party":
    "White progressives badly underachieved in Democratic primaries for governor. African-American progressives dominated."
    "Warren ... faces similar obstacles as her like-minded white progressive counterparts in the states. There’s a long history in Democratic presidential primaries of the so-called 'wine-track' candidates — Howard Dean, Bill Bradley, Gary Hart among them — generating early hype but underachieving because they failed to win support from non-white voters. Bernie Sanders had a similar problem in 2016."

    He'll likely have my vote if he does........


    The New York Times reported that Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City who was first elected to that office as a Republican, might run for president in 2020 as a Democrat.



    2020 WATCH ... DES MOINES REGISTER'S BRIANNE PFANNENSTIEL: "Exclusive: Iowa TVs already tuned to 2020 as early presidential ads sweep into the state": "High-profile presidential contenders may be playing coy with Iowans, but televisions in the first-in-the-nation caucus state are already tuned to 2020.


    "According to an exclusive Des Moines Register analysis of data from Kantar Media, more than 10,500 television ads related to the 2020 presidential elections have already aired on broadcast and cable channels across the United States this year. More than half of those ads have been on Iowa television channels.


    "Nearly all of the ads come from two Democrats : U.S. Rep. John Delaney of Maryland, who has announced a run in 2020, as well as California billionaire Tom Steyer, who says he's focused on 2018 but has directed 90 percent of his groups' television advertising toward Iowa and other early-voting states.


    "With or without Steyer's advertising, that's a dramatic shift from 2014. Like this one, that year was two years before the presidential election, but just two ads focused on the 2016 presidential election were broadcast a total of nine times in Iowa." Des Moines Register

    A really good mate of mine from my previous work is called John Delaney...it'd be a bit of fun for us if that lad won, unlikely as it is.

    Delaney, a wealthy two term member of the House announced shortly after Trump was elected that he was giving up his seat to spend four years running. He's a moderate pro biz dem.
    He has taken 2 or 3 companies public before he was forty. He's a bit like Hillary in the sense that he's got a policy for everything, but comes over better on TV. Still, I agree his chances are low.

    2020 WATCH -- "Warren: I'll 'take a hard look at' 2020 run after midterms," by Quint Forgey: "Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Saturday announced that she would 'take a hard look at' a prospective 2020 presidential run following this fall's midterm elections. 'After Nov. 6 I will take a hard look at running for president,' Warren told the audience at a town hall event in Holyoke, Massachusetts.


    "Warren, a star of the party's progressive wing, has taken several steps in recent months to heighten her national profile. She has recorded ads for a Democratic group aiming to turn statehouses blue, made plans to lend her name to a fundraising email for a Democratic candidate running for Iowa state auditor, and announced a new media strategy to combat her press-averse reputation on Capitol Hill."

    Although I like Bloomberg I will only vote for him if my hand is forced (same as was for Hillary).

    I want Young Blood on that seat.

    MIKE BLOOMBERG has registered as a DEMOCRAT.
    -- He posted a photo on Instagram at around 5:40 a.m. of him filling out the paperwork: "At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution. Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats. Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat - I had been a member for most of my life - because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs." The Instagram post

    2020 crowd jumps the gun



    Democratic hopefuls for 2020, who had been expected to wait until after midterms to begin overt campaigning, are jumping the gun and flooding into Iowa, New Hampshire and other early-voting states to begin building support.

    • Jeff Link, a top Iowa operative who has worked in Hawkeye State politics since he joined Joe Biden in 1987, said it's like a poker game: "No one wanted to jump in, but once [New Jersey Sen. Cory] Booker broke the seal (and had a good trip), it's forcing everyone else's hand."

    The same phenomenon is happening in the other early states:

    • So you had Mike Bloomberg, newly registered as a Democrat, in New Hampshire this weekend, with an upcoming trip to South Carolina.
    • Candidates are pouring into South Carolina, with its first-in-the-South primary. The Palmetto State has already hosted Joe Biden, and Booker, Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vermont) and Sen. Kamala Harris (California) all have visits scheduled before midterms.
    • And the WashPost reported today: "During the past six months, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has quietly built a shadow war room designed to elect Democrats across the country in the midterm elections, overtaking some of the traditional duties of Democratic Party campaign committees and further positioning herself for an all-but-certain 2020 presidential bid."

    One reason that operatives in the early states had expected more reticence is that donors don’t want Democrats eyeing 2020 to distract from Nov. 6.

    • But the presidential field is likely to be so crowded and brutal that no one wants to wait.
    • Aides to 2020 hopefuls said everyone's trying to increase name I.D. to try to move into the first or second tier.
    • And at this point, travel is the biggest proxy in the Invisible Primary. No one is hiring yet because all the talent is tied up on midterms races.
    • Andy Brack, editor and publisher of StatehouseReport.com in South Carolina, said: "While the midterms are less than a month away, they're quite aware that the 2020 presidential primary in South Carolina is just over 15 months away."

    Be smart: The test-the-waters crowd has some cover, because those states all have white-hot races. But veterans of past presidential campaigns say the 2020 groundwork is much more flagrant than is traditional or was expected.

    She's not going to be Hillary 2.0.......

    BOSTON GLOBE'S ANNIE LINSKEY, "Warren releases results of DNA test":"Senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that provides 'strong evidence' she had a Native American in her family tree dating back 6 to 10 generations, an unprecedented move by one of the top possible contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.



    "Warren, whose claims to Native American blood have been mocked by President Trump and other Republicans, provided the test results to the Globe on Sunday in an effort to defuse questions about her ancestry that have persisted for years. She planned an elaborate rollout Monday of the results as she aimed for widespread attention." Globe



    • "Warren, whose claims to Native American blood have been mocked by President Trump and other Republicans, provided the test results to the Globe ... in an effort to defuse questions about her ancestry."
    • "She planned an elaborate rollout [today] of the results as she aimed for widespread attention."

    "The analysis of Warren’s DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant."

    • "He concluded that 'the vast majority' of Warren’s ancestry is European, but he added that 'the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.'"
    • "Bustamante calculated that Warren’s pure Native American ancestor appears in her family tree 'in the range of 6-10 generations ago.'"
    • "That timing fits Warren’s family lore, passed down during her Oklahoma upbringing, that her great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was at least partially Native American."

    "The inherent imprecision of the six-page DNA analysis could provide fodder for Warren’s critics":

    • "If her great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian. But the report includes the possibility that she’s just 1/512th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back."

    Why it matters: "Undergoing the test and releasing the results reveal how seriously Warren is taking the attacks from Trump, who has been able to effectively caricature and diminish his national foes via nicknames and conspiracy theories."


    -- AN EMAIL FROM WARREN'S CAMPAIGN: "Today we're releasing a new video about Elizabeth Warren and her family: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHzbdZuVyAM) and launching a Fact Squad website for anyone who wants to see the facts for themselves: https://elizabethwarren.com/fact-squad/heritage/. It includes the report from Dr. Bustamante: https://mk0elizabethwarh5ore.kinstacdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Bustamante_Report_2018.pdf"



    -- "Elizabeth Warren builds expansive Democratic campaign effort ahead of likely 2020 bid," by WaPo's Matt Viser in Boston.
