Well, we know that the A.P. and NBC did this on purpose just to ruin my post but we shall:
KEEP CALM AND BLOG ON!!
Good evening Widdershins!
Silly Fredster was thinking that the only primary scheduled for today was the California
- 6/7: California Primary
- 6/7: Montana Primary
- 6/7: New Jersey Primary
- 6/7: New Mexico Primary
- 6/7: North Dakota Democratic Caucuses
- 6/7: South Dakota Primary
We had the Democratic Caucus in the Virgin Islands Saturday the 4th and Puerto Rico followed the next day on the 5th of June. Our girl won the caucus in the Virgin Islands
6-1 with 5 unpledged PLEOs. (It could be that our girl gets all seven because Bernie didn’t even crack 15% in the voting! And she won Puerto Rico by either 36 or 42 ( it has to do with the “soft” delegates and whether they are unpledged or not). And they may have those resolved by the time this is put up for the live blog on Tuesday,
After the Virgin Island Caucus and Puerto Rico’s primary, we know that Hillary is *this* close to securing the requisite number of delegates needed. And I suspect that not long after the New Jersey polls close the networks and other sites will call that primary for Hillary and give her the title of “presumptive nominee”, before the California polls even close.
Bernie will not be happy about that.
He told reporters that strong results on Tuesday would position him to make the case to Democratic Superdelegates ahead of the party convention in Philadelphia next month that he is better positioned than Clinton to beat Donald Trump in November’s election.
Keep fantasizing Bernie. That’s all you have left. It’s done.
So even though the A.P. and NBC called our special day early, we’ll still celebrate today.
