Washington (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden used a raucous rally Tuesday night to bash President Donald Trump and his politics, and he also laid out a contrast with the man who served him as vice president.

“This is not a Trump rally,” Biden told those in the audience that booed President Donald Trump’s comments about a federal judge who had struck down the Affordable Care Act. “This is not a Trump rally. This is about the future of America, and it’s time we have a president who is not going to be at the expense of his own party, of his own people.
“You’re right, you’re right,” Biden said of Trump’s remarks about a federal judge striking down Obamacare. “He said he’s going to go after the insurance companies. This is not going to be about the insurance companies, this is about the future of America.
After the rally, Biden told reporters that he’d “always been an opponent of Donald Trump” and that “he’s not going to get this nomination.
Biden’s campaign team’s decision to skip an event at which he announced he’d be running for president seemed to be motivated by concerns over his standing in the party. Democratic strategist David Axelrod tweeted Thursday that Biden’s campaign staff, on the whole, “have always been on the record opposing” the campaign of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

An In Person Address to the Virginia Governor’s Race
‘An In Person Address’ to Virginia’s Governor’s Race | Programming.
The Virginia gubernatorial race is the first of its kind in the United States, bringing together two of America’s greatest leaders of the progressive movement.
The election is going to be watched differently around the country and overseas. Some are going to be very nervous.
But others will be excited, and some might even be energized.
To help us do that, we need Virginia voters to vote.
So the Commonwealth is asking everyone who is interested to please take the time to register. This is the most important step Virginia’s voters can take.
So please take the time to register to vote, and be sure to fill your ballot paper in on time.
This is not a gimmick. This is the best way to help Virginia’s democracy succeed.
We are going to use this opportunity to help make Virginia the progressive state it has always wanted to be.
One of the greatest things Virginia needs is more progressive governors.
To do that, Virginia needs to elect a governor that is a progressive, a progressive who can inspire and excite the public with progressive ideas.
We are going to do that by encouraging Virginia voters to vote for us in this governor’s race.
I will be addressing the race on Tuesday, September 7th.
I will be speaking to the public about the issue, and I will also be speaking to groups about the issue.
I am grateful to all Virginians who are following our campaign.
I am excited to be working on behalf of Virginia’s progressive movement in a campaign that will be the first of it’s kind in the United States.
It is also the first step to helping make Virginia the progressive state it has always sought to be.
We need the public to turn out and to register so we can elect a progressive governor.
The campaign starts Tuesday, September 7th, and will continue for the next week on the eve of the election.
If you are a registered voter who would like to vote in the Virginia gubernatorial race, please take the time to register.
The Democratic nominee is a strong bellwether.
I just returned from a trip to the western states. I don’t always want a party, but I do want to be able to say that the Democratic nominee is a strong bellwether.
In a number of states, such as Wisconsin, Nevada and Louisiana, the Democratic nominee has surged ahead of the GOP in the generic congressional vote in the recent midterms. This includes two of the key electoral toss-ups of 2018, namely Texas and Colorado. In many other states, the Democrats’ nominee also has beaten the Republican nominee in the 2018 generic ballot in the midterm. This includes Iowa, Nevada and North Carolina.
Some of these states have been won by the Democrats thanks to the work of a progressive president. In Colorado and Nevada, both won by large margins after a Republican candidate lost the state by only 837 votes after the primary. In Iowa, for example, incumbent Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders won there by double digits after losing by more than 3,000 votes.
In Florida and Virginia, both are seen as key to the Senate and House of Representatives races. The Democrats’ nominee did well in those two states, but not enough to win. So there are concerns here in that the generic ballot could favor the GOP.
The generic ballot may show the election as close as a year’s wait. Some Republicans are not waiting for the general election to be decided. They are targeting vulnerable Democratic incumbents.
In Nevada, Republican Senate candidate Tonileanor Swann is expected to face Democrat Danny Tarkanian in the November 11th runoff election because of the state’s strong Democratic lean and the state’s GOP lean, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
In Texas, Republican incumbent Senate candidate Ted Cruz is expected to face Democratic Congresswoman Beto O’Rourke in the November 12th runoff election.
In Florida and Virginia, two other Senate races are now in doubt after Republican governor Rick Scott and Democratic challenger Mark Warner both won their nominations. The two candidates are facing each other in the November 14th runoff election.
Tips of the Day in Programming
Pardon me, I am writing to you in a very bad mood. I promise I am only kidding.
I have no idea why I got into this particular mess, but it is very real and I am not sure how to get myself out of it.
I don’t blame you for being upset about the situation, though, because if we don’t get things right now you are going to be stuck with this mess for a while. I am going to assume that you can accept that, and I am going to tell you to just relax.
In the meantime, here is something to keep in mind: all of your projects are going to get delayed and eventually stopped completely. This is because I am planning on releasing your code.
Once I run the tests, I will be releasing your code, so please read through the notes from the first release.
I am very sorry if this has come out wrong, or even bad, but I don’t have time for this right now. I can’t believe that I am even having to be this crazy about this.
