Joe Biden finally had a good night and reversed his slide into oblivion. But it still appears that Joe is just one gaffe or one embarrassing “senior moment” away from crashing and burning and taking the entire Dem Party with him.
So while he is riding high these days and learned Bloomberg dropped out with a promise to spend millions to beat Trump, Lindsey Graham ended the fantasy and put him on notice.
CNN reported that Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said he told President Donald Trump that Joe Biden is “going to be tough” to beat — “but still thinks it is Trump’s to lose.”
Asked if Senate Republicans would go after Joe Biden about Hunter Biden’s role with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Sen. Graham said: “If you are going to run for President, and you were in charge of the Ukrainian anti-corruption campaign as Vice President, and your son is sitting on the most corrupt company in the country while you’re trying to clean up the country, yeah that will come up.”
Asked if he would investigate the matter, he said: “Ron Johnson’s doing it,” referring to the Republican senator from Wisconsin.
Bloomberg wrote after dropping out and blowing $500 million: “Three months ago, I entered the race for President to defeat Donald Trump. Today, I am leaving the race for the same reason: to defeat Donald Trump – because it is clear to me that staying in would make achieving that goal more difficult.”
“I’m a believer in using data to inform decisions. After yesterday’s results, the delegate math has become virtually impossible – and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists. But I remain clear-eyed about my overriding objective: victory in November. Not for me, but for our country. And so while I will not be the nominee, I will not walk away from the most important political fight of my life.”
“I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
“I’ve known Joe for a very long time. I know his decency, his honesty, and his commitment to the issues that are so important to our country – including gun safety, health care, climate change, and good jobs.”
“I’ve had the chance to work with Joe on those issues over the years, and Joe has fought for working people his whole life. Today I am glad to endorse him – and I will work to make him the next President of the United States.”
“I am immensely proud of the campaign we ran, the issues we raised, and the sweeping and achievable plans we proposed – including our Greenwood Initiative to right historic wrongs, fight racial inequality, and make the promise of equal opportunity real for the Black communities that have endured centuries of exploitation and discrimination. That work is fundamental to the future of our country – and to the more perfect union that each generation is called to build.”
“The past few months have been some of the most inspiring of my life, and I want to thank the tens of thousands of Americans, from Maine to California, whom I was privileged to meet – and who every day, with their voices and their ideas, made this campaign such a powerful experience. And I am intent on making it a lasting experience: I want my supporters to stay engaged, stay active and stay committed to our issues. I will be right there with you. And together, we will get it done.”
