|February 5, 2020: The Iowa Democratic Party released its first results from the caucuses on Tuesday. Tulsi Gabbard is holding a protest in New Hampshire outside of the venue where a series of CNN town halls will be recorded.
“Enter the biggest winner of this week. Not Trump, who seems incapable of just leaving a good news cycle well enough alone. And not Joe Biden, even though he got to skip giving a pep talk to sad-faced Iowa campaign workers and declare, ‘On to New Hampshire!’ And certainly not Mayor Pete, who may or may not have won the caucuses Monday night, but will never have the chance to come barreling out of the once-important state with a win under his belt and history in the books.
The real winner this week is former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has been lying in the tall grass of the later states, seeding each with money, TV and staff, waiting for the day Democrats take a look at their options and say, ‘Is this the best we can do?’ That day seems to be coming faster than anyone anticipated.”
