I had the privilege of swearing in Karen Bass as mayor of Los Angeles. I've seen her commitment to public service up close in Congress, and I know she will serve the people of this great city with honor. Congratulations, Mayor Bass. pic.twitter.com/mgrONndfI7

The first female Vice President swearing in the first female Mayor of LA – both Black women – is giving me all the feels today.

Sorry but in light of Sinema’s actions this week we really need to focus on the terrible campaign decisions of Mandela Barnes, Tim Ryan & Cheri Beasley. Arrogance & stupidity cost them & us dearly.
National Democrats didn’t want to support Tim Ryan. Probably because he was critical of Chuck Schumer.
BTW, for those who don’t know, Chuck Schumer handpicked Kyrsten Sinema for AZ.
But that Ohio senate seat could have been won by the Democrats.

In her inaugural address, Karen Bass said Los Angeles is an “inflection point in our history.”
“I believe that times of inflection require reflection — I believe it’s time for Angelenos to remind ourselves where we come from and who we are,” she added.

Passage from Karen Bass’ speech on housing, in which she calls out LA for earning the “shameful crown” as having some of the most crowded neighborhoods in the country.
“We know our mission – we must build housing in every neighborhood.” https://t.co/NBL6fGQYGD

The far right has unleashed homophobic hate against me. I refuse to be intimidated.
When I presided over the Respect for Marriage Act, I had a simple message for the far right fanatics: your time has expired.

In 1976, THE POINTER SISTERS were asked to record “Pinball Number Count” for @SesameStreet, which was a series of educational cartoons teaching kids how to count. It made its debut in 1977 and was a feature on the show for many years. https://t.co/aloke4ckeo

This Op-Ed argues that moving the 1st dem primary from Iowa to South Carolina is a slap in the face to “rural America.”
IA is 36% rural, SC 33%.
Ah, but, IA is 90% white, SC only 67%.
Tfw “rural America” actually means “white rural America.”
