@LPDonovan My colleague reminds me it's in the pledge that he signed, but I think it's interesting that he didn't verbalize it.So, maybe Trump said this during the presser, but his statement does not say he'll support the nominee even if it's not him.Trump: "I love the people of Mexico. I love Hispanics."
Retweeted by David M. Drucker@charliespiering @marcorubio Scott doing town halls with almost every candidate@DemFromCT I think a lot of this is that the GOP let the issue languish in August. Decided they had better things to do - like birthright.People shouldn't be surprised at Ds lining up behind #IranDeal IN: New Jersey Senator Cory Booker supports Iran Deal and brings the total number of Senators to 35

Retweeted by David M. Drucker we made some concessions in talks, it was mainly to remove sanctions; otherwise why should have we negotiated?
Retweeted by David M. Drucker@kinxbitz @senatemajldr @speakerboehner Interesting idea.A source who spoke with Trump says he plans to sign the RNC's pledge today. Would affirm he won't run third-party, will support the GOP nom.

Retweeted by David M. Drucker@BresPolitico Looks like your "free vote" theory might headed for fruition. Good call."It becomes a litmus test issue, if you're so argumentative and visceral." @dcexaminer ... answer to that question is complicated.As long as Repubs need Florida (& prolly CO & NV) to win White House, they need Hispanic voters: via @DCExaminerHow well must GOP do among Hispanics to win in 2016? via @DCExaminer
Kasich takes a moderate line on Iran deal (see if Iran follows it) and Kim Davis (SSM is law of the land)
Retweeted by David M. Drucker@charlescou They are influenced by voters. ultimately.@BresPolitico ...So maybe you're right, issues goes away, no impact. What if they hadn't folded and stood pat? Who knows.@BresPolitico I'm willing to live w/ unpredictable. Thing is, each time, Congressional GOP sees polls, knows they're losing, folds...@charlescou I don't think they're corrupt. Dumb, maybe.@BresPolitico Republicans who experienced that say it helped doom their WH hopes. ... But that aside, I stick by my read of 2013/14CHART: Polling back to 1992 shows views of Hillary tied directly to whether she's running for office:

Retweeted by David M. DruckerThe Iranians have now secured enough Senate votes to ensure they have a pathway to a bomb, missile to deliver it, & money to pay for it.
Retweeted by David M. Drucker...Especially after GOP's loudest, most newsworthy voices, spent August focused on everything but #IranDeal. No mssg focus or cohesion 2/2Accumulating the Democratic votes to override @BarackObama's veto of #IranDeal disapproval was always fantasy ... 1/2Russia, China expand ties with largest naval exercise yet via @FreeBeacon #FNPolitics

Retweeted by David M. Drucker@energydonk exactly. hated #PoliticalClass @SethAMandel I disagree. But no discipline of purpose, typical when you don't have the presidency to focus minds/strategy@IshYimini @SethAMandel I also think the party dropped the ball on this in August. Focused on other topics - nothing concerted about this@BotchedLobotomy @ThomasHCrown @SethAMandel Impeachment was never going to happen. Useless exercise, politically speaking.@DraftRyan2016 @SethAMandel I wouldn't go that far. The House will pass disapproval, Senate possibly only stymied by filibuster.@SethAMandel Solid argument.@IshYimini @SethAMandel Speculation. The politics of this were pretty clear at the time.@IshYimini @SethAMandel Possibly, but Kirk-Menendez wasn't going to get votes at that point cuz not enough Dems willing to support.@SethAMandel In other words: Demand treaty, Obama refuses, but means Congress official position wld have been that it's treaty? Solid takeSmart congressional analyst w/ different take than I. Worth considering. I'm open to what Corker could have done differently.@LPDonovan Assuming I'm right...It was a tough call. Absent Corker approach, Obama ignores Congress. There's not even a discussion.@BresPolitico I'm not inclined to cross your congressional analysis. Where do the 4 Dem votes come from?At this point, Obama probably won't have to veto a disapproval motion. could be interesting: Per the @USHCC, Trump agrees to Q&A w/ the group on October 8th.AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka says the Democratic field is "still wide open" and there's time for Biden to decide about 2016 run

Retweeted by David M. Drucker@igorbobic must be the media genes.My 3 year-old son declared his 2052 candidacy today. Home state, political party & reality TV vehicle to be strategically determined later.@taleast @nickconfessore True. But for now, that is/has been the case.@nickconfessore ...but if voters use the party to nominate a non-conservative candidate, then the party is separated from the philosophy.@nickconfessore The GOP is supposed to be the party of conservatism. The philosophy hasn't changed...@nickconfessore Or he will have severed conservatism from the party that purports to be its political vehicle.Dow loses 115 points to cap worst monthly percentage loss in 5 years.
