While Democrats are still clearly reeling from their devastating loss in November to Donald Trump and a slew of other Republicans who took liberals to the woodshed in an precedented manner, many in the movement have already started plotting for the future.
Like New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a man who might as well be the poster child for the nanny state with his oppressive policies.
Apparently Cuomo has hired two fundraisers from the great state of Florida to begin helping him craft a potential bid for president come 2020.
According to Breitbart, One of the consultants he hired is former Hillary Clinton fundraiser Jon Adrabi, who “will help plan events and build relationships with Democratic donors in the key swing state.”
“Hiring out-of-state fundraising staff, particularly in a battleground state, opens up money spigots beyond what would normally be available and is a key first step to laying the groundwork for a run,” a Democratic operative told the Post.The source says that Cuomo wants to “hire political consultants with experience outside of New York.” Cuomo is planning several fundraisers next month to add to the $22 million he already has. One of those events includes “a dinner at the St. Regis where tickets cost $15,000 per person,” and “sources say a South Florida event is also in the works.”
While Cuomo has been an outspoken opponent of Trump’s from the very beginning, one of the issues that seems to have lit a fire under his backside is how the new administration repealed the guidelines Obama put in place regarding transgender bathrooms in public school.
America just gave a giant one-finger salute to progressive policies in November. So Gov. Cuomo, you go ahead and run on those failed principles. Knock yourself out.
