America needs a democratic revolution

  America needs a democratic revolution Fixing systemic inequities in voting power should be a high priority for Democrats.If Biden wins the election, the Democratic Party will almost certainly gain seats in the US Senate. But it’s far from clear whether Democrats will be able to secure a majority. In the 2018 Senate races that led to Republican gains, most votes were cast for Democrats. Democrats also won a majority of votes in Senate races in 2016, but again, Republicans secured a majority.

"We have to take a leap of faith and we have to fight for our hard-working families," Bradshaw told WCYB. Her grassroots campaign used a tiny budget to pull off an upset primary victory over James Mackler, an Army veteran whose well-funded campaign was backed by the Democratic Senatorial

The Democratic nominee seeking to replace retiring Tennessee U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander jumped out of an airplane, hoping it will inspire voters to take a "leap of faith" on her candidacy in the upcoming election.

Marquita Bradshaw took to the skies in a small airplane on Tuesday, before exiting the plane while perched approximately 11,000 feet over Northeast Tennessee, according to multiple local reports.

  Senate Republicans promise a quick floor vote on a Trump Supreme Court nominee Several senators who previously opposed high court nominations in election years are now in favor of their own party’s nominee getting a vote.Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and many of his Senate Republican colleagues signaled that they would work quickly to ensure a Supreme Court nominee receives a floor vote.

She appealed for support from voters and insisted that she was not worried about her safety after praying before taking the tandem jump.

"We have to take a leap of faith and we have to fight for our hard-working families," Bradshaw told WCYB.

Bradshaw said that she decided to take her physical leap of faith after being asked to try skydiving by the owners of a local skydiving school.

"I met Angela Alley and Mikeal Stevens, who co-own JumpTN in Greene County, while visiting all 95 counties as part of my #TransitionTN Tour," Bradshaw told WDEF. "They are world-renowned skydivers.... So when they asked would I go skydiving to support their business, I couldn't say no."

The candidate made history on August 6 by becoming the first Black woman to win the nomination of a major political party for a Tennessee U.S. Senate seat.

Minority rule in America

  Minority rule in America Our various undemocratic institutions are reenforcing each other in a deadly spiral.It didn’t happen, and in fact, the line of argument we pursued — that democratic legitimacy ought to count for something — wasn’t even taken up by the Gore campaign or Democrats. They instead pursued a legalistic argument that was denied by a 5-4 majority of conservative Supreme Court justices. Two decades later, we’re staring down the barrel of exactly what I worried about that November: not an old Constitution with some funny quirks, but a self-reinforcing spiral of minority rule.

Her grassroots campaign used a tiny budget to pull off an upset primary victory over James Mackler, an Army veteran whose well-funded campaign was backed by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

She will likely face long odds in her quest to defeat her Republican opponent Bill Hagerty, who is endorsed by President Donald Trump. The last Democrat to win a U.S. Senate election in Tennessee was former Vice President Al Gore, who held his seat in 1990.

Although no polls of the Bradshaw-Hagerty race have been released, Hagerty had a 22 percent lead over Mackler in a poll released in early February.

"I'm not a rich white man. And so I don't use the same tools that rich white men use. I know people. I work with hard-working families all across this state," Bradshaw told WJHL.

"Right now, working families across Tennessee, they want a voice and they need a voice," she added. "And Marquita Bradshaw is their voice. We're about to make history together."

Prior to become a candidate, Bradshaw worked as an advocate for environmental justice with groups including the Sierra Club. She says her family became active in the cause due to their South Memphis neighborhood being used as a chemical dumping site for military waste.

Bradshaw's progressive political platform includes support for the New Green Deal, Medicare for All, criminal justice reform and a $15 per hour minimum wage. She also supports automatic voter registration, banning gerrymandering and making Election Day a national holiday.

The Election That Could Break America

  The Election That Could Break America If the vote is close, Donald Trump could easily throw the election into chaos and subvert the result. Who will stop him?There is a cohort of close observers of our presidential elections, scholars and lawyers and political strategists, who find themselves in the uneasy position of intelligence analysts in the months before 9/11. As November 3 approaches, their screens are blinking red, alight with warnings that the political system does not know how to absorb. They see the obvious signs that we all see, but they also know subtle things that most of us do not. Something dangerous has hove into view, and the nation is lurching into its path.
