Maura Sullivan, an Illinois native turned Washington, D.C. insider who is now running for Congress in New Hampshire, is attending two fundraisers in Illinois over the next few weeks alongside former President Barack Obama’s senior strategist David Axelrod and other wealthy donors.
Former Obama White House adviser David Axelrod said Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.) can “go a bit too far” with personal dramatics in a new profile of the potential 2020 contender, saying his histrionics lead to him sacrificing his “authenticity.”
Former Obama administration officials David Axelrod and Eric Holder voiced criticism of calls to impeach Donald Trump Sunday, as a frustrated Tom Steyer continues to lobby Democrats to remove the president from office.
Barack Obama loyalists blasted Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski (D.) Thursday after a super PAC supporting him used an image of the former president, even though Lipinski opposed major parts of Obama’s agenda and did not endorse him for reelection in 2012.
Several reporters and former Obama White House staffers over the weekend spread a false story claiming Ivanka Trump requested a Spanish-American chef be kicked out of a restaurant because his presence made her “uncomfortable.”
Republicans are not the only ones who could face political consequences over a potential government shutdown if lawmakers do not strike a deal on spending and immigration by the end of the week.
Former Barack Obama adviser David Axelrod on Tuesday took an implicit shot at Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R., Ariz.) comparison of President Donald Trump to murderous Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, tweeting that it was an example of the president making his critics as hyperbolic as him.
