Quoted @NBCPolitics

NEW: Campaign says Sen. Sanders raised $5.9M in the 24 hours after announcing that he will again run for president, and more than 225,000 individuals have given $6M in total.

Well that was quick! Sanders has raised an impressive amount in the 24 hours since launching his campaign. Compare his almost $6 million to Harris who raised $1.5M in her first 24 hours & Klobuchar who garnered more than $1M in her first 48 hours, per @NBCPolitics

Sanders campaign says it’s raised $1 million since its launch three and a half hours ago. Donations from all 50 states.

I’ve interviewed a number of people who voted for Sanders in the ‘16 primary who now say they’re not convinced he’s their only option this time. But this is one reason why analysts shouldn’t write him off entirely 👇

Rep. @BradleyByrne (R-#AL01) "set to formally announce" a challenge to #ALsen @DougJones this week." Fmr. John Kelly aide Lee Busby also considering a 2nd bid for the seat. http://iapnews.com/inside-alabama-politics-february-19-2019/ …

Ex-Sessions spokesperson @whignewtons is joining CNN as political editor, helping coordinate 2020 coverage: https://politi.co/2NgcSjY  w/ @elianayjohnson

At first I read this quickly and thought it said political commentator. Political editor is... very different than that.

It's not unusual for losing House candidates to run again. It is unusual for them to run for Senate. @sfpathe & I dig into the former House hopefuls weighing higher office: http://www.rollcall.com/news/campaigns/lost-house-race-2018-now-run-senate-2020 … #TXSEN #KYSEN #IASEN #GASEN

Some names to watch in 2020...

Girl Scout cookies were delivered to my desk 20 minutes ago and I still haven't opened them. Please clap.

Bernie Sanders just announced on Vermont Public Radio that he is running for President again.

Sure, but while we always knew the 2018 race would be competitive, we didn't see compelling evidence that a Democrat could get to 49/50 percent. That hasn't changed at this point.

NORTH CAROLINA Gov. Roy Cooper (D) Job Approval: Approve 45% Disapprove 29% @HPUSurveyCenter 2/4-11 https://bit.ly/2TPRLXV 

This survey also found that 29 percent of North Carolina's registered voters believe Valentine's Day increases the closeness they feel to a romantic partner. (Seriously, this poll divided views of Valentine's Day and dating into All Adults vs. Registered Voters.)

Lamar is earning the exclamation point today.

Two pretty hard noes against the president's emergency declaration so far among Senate Rs: Rand Paul Lamar Alexander

Seems like a good time to remind everyone that GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander is retiring rather than seeking re-election in 2020

student journalists from @phoenixLUC, student newspaper of Loyola University Chicago, have been effectively barred from interviewing faculty members at their own school. (h/t @ncacensorship)

Valentine's Day has the worst holiday-specific candy options. (Halloween has the best, duh.)

This is a big win for Dems in trying to gain control of the VA state House.

Very big deal in #GA07: Congressman John Lewis backs Carolyn Bourdeaux. Democrats continuing to consolidate behind @Carolyn4GA7 to finish the job and flip this seat.

Quoted @llerer

There are six women in the presidential race. But Kirsten Gillibrand is the only one who's made running as a woman, for women, the central core of her message. "This is my space," she said. "I don’t know if my party will get as far as I will go on a lot of these issues."

There is no real precedent for Ms. Gillibrand’s strategy. Hillary Clinton struggled to talk about her gender, and essentially tried to copy the approach of the male presidential candidates who had preceded her.
