Elizabeth Warren won’t run for president in 2020.
Washington Examiner

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is not going to run for president in 2020. Warren told multiple outlets she definitively will not be running against President Trump in 2020. "I am not running for president in 2020," Warren told CNN Saturday. Warren, long considered a Democratic favorite in the next election, said her focus is on the Senate. "For the people of Massachusetts, and for the people across this country," Warren told NBC’s “Meet The Press.” She said on Sunday sexual assault in Native American communities needs to be addressed. "Half of all native women in this country have been the victims of sexual violence and more than half of them are attacked by nonnatives and the American government is doing nothing about this," he said.

Dems considering eliminating superdelegates.
The Hill

Democratic National Committee (DNC) members are weighing a new proposal to eliminate all superdelegates from the party’s nominating process, BuzzFeed News reported Thursday. The DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee have been discussing the proposal on superdelegates created by the Unity Reform Commission, which was created after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Hillary Clinton's 2016 primary battle. The unity commission had called to reduce superdelegates by about 60 percent, but the Rules and Bylaws Committee is now considering taking the proposal even further. The DNC members are debating language that would call for the committee to either "reduce," "substantially reduce," or "eliminate" superdelegates, according to BuzzFeed. Superdelegates are not bound to states’ election results in primaries, and can support whichever candidate they choose to at their party’s nominating convention.

White House promises federal aid to train armed teachers.

President Donald Trump took the first step toward arming America's teachers on Sunday night, promising Justice Department assistance to help fund firearms training for school personnel. The controversial proposal, which the president announced last month after a former student killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was part of a series of school safety measures the White House released Sunday evening. The proposal would also seek to bolster firearm background checks, expand mental health programs and encourage military veterans and retired law enforcement officers to take up careers in education. But it doesn't include a proposal the president floated March 1 to raise the minimum legal age to buy semi-automatic weapons from 18 to 21, an idea the National Rifle Association vigorously opposes.

South Korea eases jitters over US-North Korea talks.

South Korean officials will meet Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday, as part of an effort to bring jittery regional powers on board with US President Donald Trump's stunning decision to accept a face-to-face meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Seoul's lead envoy, National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong, will meet Xi in Beijing, as a parallel delegation heads to Tokyo to brief Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the attempts to open talks with Pyongyang on its nuclear and missile program. China, which appears to have been left on the sidelines as South Korea has orchestrated the rapprochement with the North, attempted to take partial credit for the developments at the weekend. An op-ed in the government mouthpiece, People's Daily, said that the diplomatic breakthrough followed China's "dual-suspension" proposal, in which North Korea would freeze its missile-testing program in return for the suspension of US-South Korean military drills. But despite China's claim, North Korea has yet to offer any concrete steps to whittle back its nuclear program, while Kim told a South Korean delegation to Pyongyang last week that he understands the need for Seoul and Washington to continue its joint drills. In a call with Trump Friday, Xi appeared to welcome the prospect of talks.

Republicans poised to keep the Senate.

With the mid-terms approaching, we are starting to see our first polling from some of the Senate races. The road for Democrats to take the Senate has always appeared tough. The map is just brutal this year with them having to defend 10 seats in states Trump won. Yet, with the “blue wave” theorem bouncing around, some have taken up new hope that things could actually flip. Yeah, not so much. Per Axios: Five Senate Democrats would lose to a Republican candidate if the election were held today and three have approval ratings under 50%, according to new Axios/SurveyMonkey polls.

Election forecasts continue to improve for Dems.
The Hill

A top election forecaster has moved more than two dozen House races in favor of Democrats. Sabato’s Crystal Ball, an election handicapper at the University of Virginia, announced the ratings changes Thursday morning. This is the first time in this election cycle that fewer than 218 seats have been at least rated as leaning Republican. All Democratic incumbents' races are now rated at least “Likely Democratic.” The ratings also name GOP Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for the first time. Ryan’s seat was moved from “Safe” to “Likely” Republican. The group noted that reports that he may not run for reelection were the primary reason the move. The forecaster moved five seats defended by GOP incumbents from “Leans Republican” to “Toss-Up,” and one open New Hampshire seat from “Toss-Up” to “Leans Democratic.” One of the most significant ratings changes is the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, which is now rated as a “toss-up.” A recent poll showed Democrat Conor Lamb holding a slim lead against state Rep. Rick Saccone (R) in the race for the deep-red district, which Trump won by double digits in the 2016 election.

Democrat accused of harassment reconsiders retirement.
The Hill

Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) is reportedly reconsidering his decision to retire in the face of sexual misconduct allegations. The Nevada Independent reported Wednesday that Kihuen has contacted donors about running for reelection, and is considering filing documents to do so. Kihuen has reportedly reached out to former Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) about the possibility. Kihuen announced in December he would not seek reelection after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct. His decision came a day after the House Ethics Committee announced it was launching an investigation into the allegations. The freshman congressman allegedly made unwanted sexual advances toward a former campaign staffer, and another woman claimed Kihuen sent her suggestive text messages and touched her inappropriately while he was a state lawmaker. Kihuen has denied the allegations. Former Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) has already announced he intends to run for his old House seat, which is currently held by Kihuen.

Warren invests $265k for Democrats nationwide.

In her first major national political move amid widespread assumption that she’s preparing a run for president, Elizabeth Warren announced Wednesday that she’s donated $5,000 to every state Democratic Party in the country. The Massachusetts senator announced the checks from her campaign account at a Democratic National Committee dinner in Washington. “I want a Democratic Party strong enough to compete for every vote, in every race, at every level, in every state, in every election — and I’m willing to do my part to help make that happen,” Warren said. Warren also wrote a $15,000 check to the Democratic National Committee, which in November she had accused of being “rigged” for Hillary Clinton in 2016. The DNC has been struggling with fundraising, banking half as much as the Republican National Committee in 2017, and scrambling to invest in state parties to meet the promises made by DNC chair Tom Perez.

Florida lawmakers vote to stay in Daylight Saving Time.

Lawmakers in Florida are tired of the whole "fall back" and "spring forward" rigamarole. So they've approved a bill to keep Daylight Saving Time going throughout the year in their state. It took the state Senate less than a minute Tuesday to pass the "Sunshine Protection Act." There were only two dissenters. (The House passed it 103-11 on February 14.) The bill now goes to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott -- but it's far from a done deal after that, Even if the governor approves, a change like this will literally take an act of Congress. But if all is approved, Floridians -- who'll set their clocks ahead one hour this Sunday when Daylight Saving Time begins -- won't have to mess with it ever again. Florida will then join Hawaii and most of Arizona, the two places that are exempt from the Uniform Time Act of 1966. The Act established the system of uniform Daylight Saving Time throughout the US.

Former Russian spy poisoned by nerve agent.
New York Times

A former Russian spy and his daughter were poisoned by a nerve agent in Britain this week, the British police said on Wednesday, heightening suspicions that the episode was an assassination attempt by a national government, amid rampant speculation that Russia was responsible. The development forces the British government to confront the possibility that once again, an attack on British soil was carried out by the government of President Vladimir V. Putin, which Western intelligence officials say has, with alarming frequency, ordered the killing of people who have crossed it. Prime Minister Theresa May and her cabinet ministers held a meeting on Wednesday of the government’s emergency security committee to discuss the matter. “This is being treated as a major incident involving attempted murder by administration of a nerve agent,” said Mark Rowley, Britain’s chief police official for counterterrorism and international security.

Unless Ted Cruz kneels during the anthem, kicks a puppy, or shreds a pocket Constitution, he wins in November.
Phillip Wegmann, Washington Examiner

Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, easily clinched the Democratic Senate nomination Tuesday night in Texas. But O’Rourke didn’t make the kind of blue wave needed to sink the incumbent, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. The upstart Democrat didn’t even get half-as-many votes as Cruz in the open primary. Cruz pointed to that data point to dispel forecasts of a Democrat deluge. “Because every two years, every four years, Texas is always fixin’ to turn blue, but the nice value of it is, in Texas at least, there are a lot more conservatives than there are liberals,” Cruz told CNN. That confidence is warranted. Not only did Cruz bring in 1.3 million votes compared to O’Rourke’s 641,324, he won nearly 300,000 more votes than the entire Democratic field combined. And if the election was held tomorrow, the totals would be even more staggering. As Jeffrey Blehar points out over at Decision Desk HQ, the race was uncontested, meaning that 1.3 million primary voters showed up to give Cruz the nomination in what amounted to little more than a formality.

After historic tax win, Gary Cohn resigns.

White House chief economic advisor Gary Cohn has resigned from President Donald Trump's administration. The former Goldman Sachs president and free trade advocate Cohn, whose departure date will come in a few weeks, ... In a prepared statement, Cohn said, "It has been an honor to serve my country and enact pro-growth economic policies to benefit the American people, in particular the passage of historic tax reform." "I am grateful to the President for giving me this opportunity and wish him and the Administration great success in the future," Cohn said. In his own statement, Trump said, "Gary has been my chief economic advisor and did a superb job in driving our agenda, helping to deliver historic tax cuts and reforms and unleashing the American economy once again. "He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people." Cohn clashed with Trump's protectionist advisors on the issue of tariffs.

Sessions targets California’s sanctuary cities.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will speak Wednesday about his Department of Justice’s (DOJ) first-of-its-kind lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of three of California’s “sanctuary” laws, Breitbart News has learned. Relying on both federal statutes and the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, DOJ will ask the U.S. District Court for the District of Eastern California to issue a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of these laws intended to protect illegal aliens by preventing cooperation with federal immigration enforcement. DOJ will also seek declaratory judgement that these laws are unconstitutional – “preempted” by federal immigration law – when it files late Tuesday night. “The Department of Justice and the Trump administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you,” Attorney General Sessions is expected to tell a gathering of California police officers Wednesday in Sacramento. “We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America. And I believe that we are going to win.”

After last night’s Texas win, Cruz launches country music radio ad targeting Democrat opponent.

Senator Ted Cruz easily, handily won the primary as expected. The news is that once again, turnout for Republicans stomped Democrat turnout (even though the press is only reporting that Dem turnout was higher than usual.) It was a good night. Immediately after winning, and tweeting about his win, Senator Cruz released his first general election ad. A radio spot that hits Democratic challenger Robert “Beto” O’Rourke — not to be confused with any Latino Beto’s, this guy’s just Irish-American — hard. Cruz called out O’Rourke’s cynical appeal to Hispanic voters in making sure to use the name “Beto.” It’s a good ad, made even better by the fact that east coast liberals won’t even be able to process it. And even better still by the hopes of Beto’s out-of-state cheerleaders who actually think he’s going to win. Anyway, congratulations Senator Cruz.

Washington’s gun bill is running out of time.
King 5 News

The Washington state Senate did not debate or vote on a gun control and school safety bill Tuesday night. That likely makes it a longshot to be passed by Thursday's session deadline. Senate Bill 6620 requires enhanced background checks for purchasing semi-automatic rifles and raises the purchase age for those weapons from 18 to 21. The bill’s sponsor said it would need to be voted on Tuesday in order to be passed by Thursday. Later in the night, Senator David Frockt, D-Seattle said he was still hopeful. “We don’t have much time,” said Frockt. “The public is asking for us to take action on school safety in the wake of Parkland. “I’m doing everything I can. I’m talking to Democrats. I’m talking to Republicans,” he said. “I’m offering creative concepts and solutions of things that may not be directly related to each other that might be helpful.” It might not be enough. Other proponents said there’s not enough time left in the session to complete the bill, which faces 23 amendments, debate, and votes in the Senate and House. The bills also adds school safety measures like money for more campus resource officers. “I don’t think the bill will progress any farther,” said Senator Tim Sheldon, D-Mason County. He opposes SB 6620. “If it were just school security and mental health, there would be a large majority, but by mixing it with Second Amendment rights, that’s not going to make it viable in the end,” said Sheldon.

Brexit: EU to set out guidelines for trade talks.

The European Parliament document, which may be changed before it is adopted later on Wednesday, says non-EU members - even if very closely aligned to the bloc - cannot expect the same rights and benefits as EU members. It also warns that the UK's current "red lines" in Brexit talks "would lead to customs checks and verification which would affect global supply chains and manufacturing processes, even if tariff barriers can be avoided". It says a "deep and comprehensive" trade deal, of the kind envisioned by Theresa May, must entail "a binding interpretation role" for the European Court of Justice. The European Parliament resolution also warns the UK against "cherry-picking of sectors of the internal market". BBC Brussels Correspondent Adam Fleming said the draft will look like a rejection of the speech Theresa May delivered on Friday setting out her vision of post-Brexit trade, but with some "wriggle room" and the possibility of much more if the UK softens some of its red lines.

Can you bribe tyrants into freeing their countries?
Michael Dougherty, National Review

Just a few weeks ago, Nicholas Kristof was putting forward a theory that Chinese president Xi Xinping would bring about liberalizing economic and political reform. “HERE is my prediction about China: The new paramount leader, Xi Jinping, will spearhead a resurgence of economic reform, and probably some political easing as well,” Kristof wrote, unaware that China would shortly institute changes making Xi, in essence, an emperor. With the new reforms to China’s constitution, political figures have been walking back their declamations about Xi as “world leader,” or hedge against Trump. And there has been a general proclamation that President Bill Clinton and many others in the West got it wrong when they predicted that China’s accession to the World Trade Organization would bring about a quiet, liberalizing revolution.

Pence to promote GOP in Iowa, Kentucky and Nebraska.
The Hill

Vice President Pence will travel to Iowa, Nebraska and Kentucky this week to promote the Trump administration’s policies and campaign for Republican candidates, his office announced Monday. Pence will travel Tuesday to Council Bluffs, Iowa, to speak at an America First Policies event. He will tout the Republican tax-cut bill passed late last year in a district represented by Rep. David Young (R). President Trump won the district by 3.5 points in 2016, and several Democrats have entered the race to challenge Young in November’s midterm, including a former campaign aide for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), according to The Des Moines Register. Pence will travel later Tuesday to Omaha, Neb., to take part in a campaign event for Gov. Pete Ricketts (R). Ricketts is up for reelection in 2018 and is facing a challenge from state Sen. Bob Krist, who left the Republican Party to mount an independent challenge. Omaha is also home to Rep. Don Bacon (R), who is looking to hold his seat in a rematch of the 2016 campaign against former Rep. Brad Ashford (D). Trump won the district by 2 points in 2016.

Thad Cochran to retire from US Senate.
Washington Examiner

Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., announced Monday that he plans to retire from the Senate effective April 1 amid a series of health concerns after nearly 40 years in the Senate. “I regret my health has become an ongoing challenge. I intend to fulfill my responsibilities and commitments to the people of Mississippi and the Senate through the completion of the 2018 appropriations cycle, after which I will formally retire from the U.S. Senate," Cochran said in a statement. “It has been a great honor to serve the people of Mississippi and our country," Cochran said. "I’ve done my best to make decisions in the best interests of our nation, and my beloved state. My top concern has always been my constituents in Mississippi. My hope is by making this announcement now, a smooth transition can be ensured so their voice will continue to be heard in Washington, D.C. My efforts, and those of my staff, to assist them will continue and transfer to my successor.”

Florida state Senate votes against arming teachers.

Florida’s Republican-controlled Senate voted on Monday to generally exclude classroom teachers from a plan to allow school staff to carry firearms as part of a package of measures in response to a school shooting that took 17 lives last month. The amendment was designed in part to increase support from many parents, law enforcement officials and legislators in both parties who object to arming teachers, as well as from Governor Rick Scott, a Republican also on record as opposed to the idea. The exclusion was adopted by voice vote as part of a package of legislation the Senate passed a short time later, 20-18, to raise the minimum legal age for buying all guns in Florida to 21 and impose a three-day waiting period for any gun purchase. The minimum age for handguns nationally is already 21. But a person can be as young as 18 to buy a rifle in Florida, with no waiting period.

Kim Jong-un meets South Korea envoys in Pyongyang.
Al Jazeera

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has met high-ranking South Korean officials, South Korean news agency Yonhap said. According to the South Korean presidential office, Kim hosted a dinner with South Korean President Moon Jae-in's special envoys on Monday, Yonhap reported. It is believed to be the first time the North Korean leader has met South Korean officials since he took office in 2011. The meeting comes as a delegation of South Korean officials travelled to North Korea on Monday to discuss bilateral relations between the two, rival neighbours and potential dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang administrations. According to US media, the South Korean envoys are also expected to put forward the president's wishes for nuclear disarmament in the Korean Peninsula, as well as encouraging peaceful dialogue between both nations in the hope of restoring diplomatic ties.

Cruz defends Texas’ honor, destroys gross media lie.
Joe Cunningham, RedState

Ted Cruz will allow no one to slander the good name of Texas, no matter what the issue is. However, there are few issues as important to Texas, and the South as a whole, as its cooking. Munchies, a part of Vice Media that focuses on food, presented a story that most in the South would find appalling. That, dearest friends, is not barbeque. That is, at best, a sample of what appears to be dry brisket. That might as well be off the kids’ menu at any decent barbeque restaurant. Senator Ted Cruz, as an honest Texas man, was as appalled as the rest of us, and was quick to inform Munchies that the premise of the story was a bit ridiculous. For those unaware, “bless your hearts” is the Southern equivalent of “You sad, sad person,” and it’s wholly appropriate because whoever thinks what Munchies displays in that picture is barbeque has clearly missed out on good barbeque all their lives.

Trump taps Brad Parscale as 2020 campaign manager.
Washington Examiner

President Trump has tapped former digital aide Brad Parscale to lead his re-election bid, as his campaign begins to focus on “building its infrastructure for the 2020 race,” according to a statement issued Tuesday. Parscale served as the digital architect of the Trump campaign throughout the 2016 presidential election, after spending years developing websites for the president's real-estate company and his daughter's and wife's business ventures. A source close to the White House said Parscale, who earned more than $10 million for his work on the Trump campaign, has remained close to the president and his family since the president took office. “Brad is an amazing talent and was pivotal to our success in 2016,” Trump’s son Eric said in a statement. “He has our family’s complete trust and is the perfect person to be at the helm of the campaign.” Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner praised the “disciplined technology and data-driven approach” Parscale introduced during the 2016 election, saying “his leadership and expertise will help build a best-in-class campaign” ahead of 2020.

Trump urges Texas GOP voters to back incumbents.
The Hill

President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to urge Texans to vote for a number of Republicans in the primaries, including Gov. Greg Abbott and Sen. Ted Cruz. “I want to encourage all of my many Texas friends to vote in the primary for Governor Greg Abbott, Senator Ted Cruz, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, and Attorney General Ken Paxton,” Trump tweeted. “They are helping me to Make America Great Again! Vote early or on March 6th.” “Elections are about choices. In 2016, @GeorgePBush endorsed @realDonaldTrump and campaigned for him. His opponent attacked Trump and urged him quit the race. Texas conservatives have a clear choice: Bush for Texas Land Commissioner,” the president’s son tweeted earlier this month. Texas has witnessed a surge in Democratic enthusiasm for this year’s primary election. Compared to the first six days of early voting in the last midterm election, Democratic turnout has increased by 69 percent compared with an increase of 20 percent for Republicans.

Elvis impersonator is running for Congress.

Elvis Presley is running for a congressional seat in Arkansas. An Elvis impersonator who legally changed his name to match the rock ’n’ roll icon has filed to run as a Libertarian against Arkansas Republican Representative Rick Crawford, The Associated Press reported. Libertarians selected Presley as their nominee for the 1st Congressional District on February 24 after nearly choosing a “none of the above” option over fears he would attract the wrong type of attention. The close vote ended 20-18 in Presley’s favor, according to Arkansas Online. Presley previously launched unsuccessful bids for a state Legislature seat, land commissioner and for Arkansas governor.

Alabama schools could have armed help under new bill.

Any trained school employee or citizen volunteer could join an armed security force in Alabama schools under a bill lawmakers are considering -- one of several such measures being proposed in U.S. states after the Florida high school massacre. Rep. Allen Farley, a Republican and former law enforcement officer, filed the bill on Thursday, and it has been referred to a committee for consideration. It replicates a local law in north Alabama's Franklin County that was twice vetoed by the governor before becoming law in 2013. Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow, a Republican who sponsored the local law, said it was needed because rural schools couldn't afford School Resource Officers (SROs) and the emergency response time could be 30 minutes.

Papua New Guinea: at least 16 dead after earthquake.
The Guardian

The impoverished Pacific nation of Papua New Guinea has been devastated by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake that has claimed at least 16 lives and brought the heartland of the country to its knees. The earthquake, the strongest ever to hit the country, struck the Southern Highlands, Hela Province and the Western Highlands region early on Monday morning, but the extent of the devastation took days to emerge because of the area’s remoteness. Southern Highlands governor William Powi said on Wednesday that authorities in his region were still trying to assess the extent of the damage, and his people were traumatized, with the disaster causing “catastrophic havoc and destruction.” Uvenama Rova, secretary general of the PNG Red Cross, said he had confirmed reports of 11 deaths in the southern highlands region and five in Hela province, though his contacts in the affected regions reported “many” more deaths, entire villages buried under landslips, and mass grieving by affected communities.

New poll: Trump’s approval rating went HOW far?
Neil Stevens, RedState

Republicans are sliding down the hill in the generic ballot, but it’s this new Rasmussen daily tracker of Donald Trump’s approval that’s really turning heads. Wow. Donald Trump is really in the dumpster in most polling. Gallup, CNN, USA Today, Marist, The Economist, Reuters, Harris, Quinnipac, the recent polling is a tidal wave of results that have America turning against Donald Trump. But Rasmussen the last couple of days has had some freak results. To be clear, their Daily Tracking poll is not a regular poll. They take a small sample every day, and release a rolling average. So if one of those days is weird, it’ll show a fluke bump. We appear to be in one of those bumps right now, as Donald Trump took a 50-48 lead in the Rasmussen approval tracker. If he can hold it, that’s huge, even if it’s only one poll. Stay tuned.
