A reminder not to say, “hey, you’ve got something on your forehead” today.
Also shows Bloomberg would push Warren below the 15% threshold for statewide delegates.
Bloomberg on the ballot in #TXprimary pulls from almost every other candidate other than Sanders, but hits Biden hardest. https://twitter.com/edespinoza/status/1232650504070684679

Watching the tenth Democratic debate. Bloomberg started to say he “bought” the Democratic wins in the House and caught himself.
There is a lot of yelling happening.
All the candidates are screaming over each other about math and Andrew Yang must be somewhere saying, “Aw, come on!"
