Notations On Our World: On the US Presidential Campaign (The Day After Nevada & South Carolina)

It has been quite an evening as we reported on the results of the Nevada Caucus.    As the Clinton Campaign sent out its' "thank you's",  organizations supporting the Sanders Campaign sent out calls to action (including MoveOn.Org network and the Democracy for America Network) to ask for donations to his campaign as a build up to Super Tuesday:  

The final results are in from Nevada and it looks like we're going to leave another state with roughly the same number of delegates as Hillary Clinton, maybe down just a few.

I want to be completely clear with you about what this result means: Nevada was supposed to be a state "tailor made" for the Clinton campaign, and a place she once led by almost 40 points. But today, we sent a message that will stun the political and financial establishment of this country: our campaign can win anywhere.

There are 26 primaries and caucuses in the next month, and three straight positive results for our campaign are sure to prompt an over-the-top response from the millionaires and billionaires who want to stop our campaign to transform America.

We have to be prepared for their best shot, because it’s coming:

We’re closing the gap dramatically in states that have yet to vote, and there’s a path to victory for our political revolution. If we continue to stand together, we’ll continue to win.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

  What is quite startling is what happened in South Carolina as Donald Trump won and won convincingly with over 32% of the votes cast.    Marco Rubio has come in a close second to Ted Cruz and the following went out from Rubio Campaign on donations (with personalized links): 

Marco Rubio

After the results in New Hampshire, the media and Marco's opponents wrote our campaign off.  

They said Marco had no chance, that he wasn't angry enough, that Americans weren't buying into his positive vision, that Republicans didn't want a nominee who could speak to all Americans.  

Well, tonight in South Carolina we proved them wrong.  

But   this fight is just beginning. Marco's taking nothing for granted in this election. We are now in a three-man race for the nomination, but that's going to be a long, tough battle.  

Marco's opponents both have millions upon millions of dollars that they've shown they'd be happy to use to mudsling. In order to fight back, it's going to take all hands on deck.   

We put together personalized links just for you, to make a special donation on this historic night. 
 This is as Jeb Bush dropped out of the Presidential Race.    Our team first noted the difficulties a number of days ago as reports began to surface that  the Campaign was running out of cash.   Governor Kasich is also another one that is hanging out and is making a case for Super Tuesday.      It was startling how he started with $ 100 Million Dollars and rolled out his Mother and Brother--however it just did not catch on.   What we found startling was how the Rubio Campaign characterized the second place finish.  

It will be an interesting few weeks.......
