Obama Creates Fund To Help Dem Primary Winner
Former President Barrack Obama is trying to rally some support for Dem presidential candidates. He is doing this by creating a fund that will go to the last one standing.
“I’m excited that the DNC asked me to announce a bold new effort: The Democratic Unity Fund,” Obama wrote. “Launching today, the fund will be dedicated to electing our party’s eventual presidential nominee and winning up and down the ballot in 2020.”
“The Democratic Unity Fund is a promise that whoever earns our nomination, he or she will have a strong, united, and well-organized DNC ready to spring into action the moment the general election starts — a DNC that’s ready to lift us all to victory in November,” Obama said, adding that donations would go toward developing “robust, dynamic party infrastructure.”
“The email comes after the DNC in 2016 faced accusations of tipping the scales in favor of the eventual nominee Hillary Clinton and against her primary challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is running again in 2020.
The DNC, now led by Obama’s former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez, has sought to introduce more transparency around the nomination process, especially around the dozen debates planned over 2019 and 2020.”
Obama has yet to endorse any candidate as of yet and although he did praise Biden for running.
“President Obama has long said that selecting Joe Biden as his running mate in 2008 was one of the best decisions he ever made,” Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill said in a statement Thursday morning. “He relied on the Vice President’s knowledge, insight, and judgment throughout both campaigns and the entire presidency. The two forged a special bond over the last 10 years and remain close today.”
Biden explicitly asked Obama not to endorse him off the jump as he wants to earn the right as opposed to getting a huge boost from a Dem idol.
Obama is just trying to prevent a reoccurrence of 2016 where Hillary Clinton rigged the election against Bernie Sanders. Which apparently was no big deal… As the Dems just went along with it.
