The first $2,700/$5,000 from an individual/multicandidate committee (PAC) will be allocated to Hillary for America, designated for the primary election. The next $33,400/$15,000 from an individual/PAC will be allocated to the Democratic National Committee. Additional amounts from an individual/PAC will be split equally among the Democratic state parties from these states up to $10,000/$5,000 per state party: AK, AR, CO, FL, GA, ID, IN, KY, LA, ME, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NV, NH, NC, OH, OK, OR, PA, PR, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, WV, WI, and WY. A contributor may designate his or her contribution for a particular participant. The allocation formula above may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution. Contributions will be used in connection with a Federal election, may be spent on any activities of the participants as each committee determines in its sole discretion, and will not be earmarked for any particular candidate.
The money is being spent to elect Democrats so that we might have less gridlock in Washington and maybe more Dems in State legislatures when the time comes for redistricting again.
To use the Victory Fund it as a weapon against Hillary or to help Bernie win is disgusting!
If a bill landed on her desk raising the federal minimum wage to $15 I am sure she would sign it. But it isn't the President who makes the laws.
If she were President tens of millions could still rise up. Bernie could propose single payer and free tuition. Hillary would sign those bills if they passed both houses.
If you raise wages you raise spending which pays for the wages.
days in advance and changed their registrations and also knew where Bernie folks were going to vote and closed those polls.
And they had some secret inter workings with Hillary's campaign people to help Hillary even though it would disenfranchise repub voters also.
Next Hillary is running around New York with stolen lists of Bernie supporters getting county registrars to wipe them off the rolls.
Hillary Clinton has served as secretary of state, senator from New York, first lady of the United States, first lady of Arkansas, a practicing lawyer and law professor, activist, and volunteerbut the first thing her friends and family will tell you is that shes never forgotten where she came from or who shes been fighting for.
Hillary grew up in a middle-class home in Park Ridge, a suburb of Chicago. Her dad, Hugh, was a World War II Navy veteran and a small-business owner who designed, printed, and sold drapes. Hillary helped with the family business whenever she could.
Hugh was a rock-ribbed Republican, a pay-as-you-go kind of guy who worked hard and wasted nothing.
Hillarys mother, Dorothy, had a tough childhood. She was abandoned by her parents as a young child and shipped off to live with relatives who didnt want to raise her.
By age 14, Dorothy knew the only way shed get by was to support herself, and she started working as a housekeeper and babysitter while she went to high school. Her mothers experience inspired Hillary to fight for the needs of children everywhere.
Hillarys childhood was very different from her mothers. Her parents built a stable middle-class life. Hillary attended public school and was a Brownie and a Girl Scout. She was raised a Methodist, and her mother taught Sunday school. On a trip to Chicago with her youth ministry, Hillary got to see Martin Luther King Jr. speakthis sparked her lifelong passion for social justice.
to be continued ....
And her 400 or so super delegates vote for her she wins the nomination right?
Bernie is behind about 250 pledged delegates. I don't see where he makes that up.
WI could help him close in but I don't see him winning big in NY, NJ or PA. He will fall behind again by a larger amount.
No state is winner take all and some are closed primaries. Only two caucus states are left.
