Sans Plans and more — #NebDems News

Four months from today is Nov. 3 — election day. And that ought to scare the hoo-ha out of you.


Well, despite all the polls showing Vice President Joe Biden well ahead of President Trump, there remains a chance Trump could lose the popular vote and still win a second term because of the Electoral College. Sound familiar?

Fox News’ Chief Softball Chucker Sean Hannity recently hosted a town hall event at which he asked 45 about his plans should he win. Trump’s answer was, in essence, that he did not have any.

“One of the things that will be really great — the word experience is still good, I always say talent is more important than experience, I’ve always said that — but the word experience is a very important word, a very important meaning,” Trump said.

It swirled down the drain after that. Bottom line? There is no plan, which Esquire’s Jack Holmes noted.

Trump is merely the most garish expression of this, turning the nation’s highest governing office into a rolling circus act while shredding the institutions of democracy, and while the termites of the state go to work behind the scenes.

It’s hard not to feel like he’s run out of steam, that he’s sick of doing this job he never really wanted anyway. But then you remember that, thanks to our idiotic system, he could be re-elected despite losing the popular vote by as much as six percent. What would his agenda be then?

Just 123 days until the election.

The Nebraska Democratic Party is excited to announce investments into our state’s Get-Out The-Vote efforts as we head toward the Nov. 3 General Election.

Our NDP team now includes a strong and diverse team of 14 staff members to help us elect Democrats up and down the ballot this November — including reclaiming the “Blue Dot” in Congressional District 2.

Working with committed Nebraska donors alongside national partners — the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee and the team of Vice President Joe Biden — we have gained additional resources that made several new hires possible and allowed us to expand our Block Captain, Voter Guide and Vote-By-Mail programs.

Please join the party in welcoming new members to our campaign team:

Peter Coyne, Operations Director
Drew Rodriguez, Regional Field Director
Fatima Flores-Lagunas, Campaign Field Director
Giselle Bergmeier, Mobilization Director
Preston Love, Constituency Organizer
Adonna Bryant, Field Organizer
Alejandra Escobar, Field Organizer
Nathan Johnson, Field Organizer
Jaden Wade, Field Organizer

The Lincoln Project, which has been rocking it with a series of anti-Trump ads, hit one out of the park this week with one on Trump’s inaction on the news that Russia paid the Taliban bounties to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Watch it here.


Organizers of the petition drive to legalize medical marijuana turned in more than 182,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office on Thursday to get the issue on the Nov. 3 ballot.

Congratulations to state Sens. Anna Wishart and Adam Morfeld for leading the effort.


We leave you this week with a rendering by Mike Luckovich on how the rush by Republicans to reopen the economy has led to a spike in coronavirus cases.
