|Jim Webb is out. He is considering a run as an independent. He can't cut it as a Democratic candidate.|
The former Virginia senator will bow out today. Jim Webb is totally disgruntled with the Democratic Party. He believes that the junk food media failed to give him, Martin O'Malley and Lincoln Chafee an opportunity to shine.
Like your disastrous debate performance wasn't a factor?
Now he's going to make his announcement to drop out. He is considering a run as a "NO LABELS" independent.
He cites his dismal poll numbers as well as the Democrats pulling to the left as a reason for dropping out. He figures that if people start to notice him as an independent, he may have a shot.
Webb is not planning to announce an independent bid on today. Webb is "expected to take some time after his announcement to talk with people from across the political spectrum before making a decision."
Webb has struggled to raise cash against his Democratic opponents and has reported taking in just under $697,000 in his recent filing statement with less than $317,000 on hand — less than Harvard law professor Larry Lessig, who did not qualify for last week's debate in Las Vegas, an event where Webb felt he did not get enough time to speak. In the same period, Hillary Clinton raised nearly $30 million with $25.7 million on hand.
Will Joe Biden jump in this race or not?
The junk food media is obsessed with Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ben Carson and Bernie Sanders. Each of these candidate got a majority of the attention. The rest of them are struggling for at least some recognition.
While Republicans are seeking opportunities to destroy Hillary Clinton, the Democrats are watching the infighting of Republicans come to the surface.
It's looking like a two-man race. Donald Trump and Ben Carson will be assisted with Secret Service detail soon. The rest of the candidates are blips on the radar. Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz are still in this. The rest of them are barely charting.
Republican National Party chairman Reince Priebus is getting frustrated with infighting and the insurgents destroying the party's platform.
But wait, don't the Democrats have their problems too?
It's out in the open that Democratic National Party chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) is feuding with her co-chair Rep. Tulisi Gabbard (D-HI) over the direction of the party.
