Resurgent Biden earns Klobuchar, Buttigieg backing before Super Tuesday

first_imgJoe Biden’s presidential hopes received a huge shot in the arm Monday after former rivals Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the United States’ Democratic race and endorsed the former vice president ahead of the crucial Super Tuesday primaries.The dramatic turn comes at one of the pivotal points in a fractured, often bitter campaign, with the Democratic establishment desperate to coalesce around a moderate candidate who can fight off the surging leftist frontrunner Bernie Sanders.As the five remaining candidates in the race made their final pitch to voters in 14 states, Biden has capitalized on the momentum he seized at the weekend with a blowout victory over Sanders in South Carolina. It was just one of several endorsements Biden earned on a busy day.Klobuchar dropped out Monday and her team said she will endorse the 77-year-old and join him onstage in Dallas.Democrat Harry Reid, the former Senate majority leader said his onetime Senate colleague Biden represents “the starkest contrast to Trump’s amorality, corruption and utter incompetence.”Another former presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke, reportedly will also be on stage with Biden in Dallas.”Most Americans don’t want a promise of a revolution, they want a guarantee of results on the things that affect them,” Biden told a rally in Houston in a swipe at Sanders, who advocates a “political revolution” against the status quo.”We need real results and we need them now. I’ve done that my whole career, and I’ll do it as president.”The departures and endorsements of Klobuchar and Buttigieg are gold for a resurgent Biden.His campaign was on life support after disappointing showings in the first three state contests, but he is suddenly the main challenger to Sanders on the biggest day of the primary campaign.New York billionaire Mike Bloomberg, who on Tuesday competes in his first primaries, has also been spreading his message to voters in a lavish multi-state ad blitz, but Super Tuesday will be his first official day on the ballot.Sanders – flush with money for ads, an extensive organization, and momentum in the polls – has focused on multiple states including delegate-rich California, Tuesday’s biggest prize.”It is no secret… that there is a massive effort trying to stop Bernie Sanders,” the frontrunner said about himself during a press conference in Utah.”The corporate establishment is coming together, the political establishment is coming together,” Sanders added. “They are really getting nervous that working people are standing up.”Sanders, whose ascent as a self-described democratic socialist has disconcerted Democratic grandees, is leading Biden nationally in polling, with Bloomberg in third place.Buttigieg had strong showings in predominantly white early voting states but was unable to draw black and Hispanic support after that.The campaign of pragmatist Klobuchar never gained traction. By endorsing Biden, she could deprive Sanders of a large delegate claim in her state of Minnesota, which votes Tuesday.Klobuchar’s endorsement “will bring more votes to Joe Biden,” Myliesha Smiley, a 23-year-old student at Biden’s Houston event, told AFP.Biden’s fortunes were resurrected in South Carolina, where African-Americans turned out in force to give him a crushing 48 percent to 20 percent victory over Sanders.”Super Tuesday is about momentum, and we’ve got it,” Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager, told CNN.The win has earned Biden badly needed campaign funding – $10 million raised on Saturday and Sunday alone.The former number two to Barack Obama says his strength with blacks, Hispanics, women and suburbanites will show in the coming contests.Though Klobuchar was joining Biden’s camp, Sanders weighed in to appeal to her voters.”I hope her supporters will join us in our fight to defeat Donald Trump in November and win real change,” Sanders tweeted.Also courting moderate and independent voters is Bloomberg, who campaigned in Virginia on Super Tuesday eve.”I’ve won three elections so far, I don’t plan to start losing now,” Bloomberg said.Bloomberg has spent an unprecedented $500 million of his own fortune saturating the airwaves with TV spots.Topics : The 77-year-old Biden is consolidating support among moderates eager to blunt the advance of Sanders, who could take a potentially insurmountable lead in the all-important delegate count after Super Tuesday.Buttigieg, the 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana ran a historic campaign as the first openly gay major presidential candidate.Speaking in Dallas one day before residents of delegate-rich Texas and 13 other states cast their ballots, Buttigieg said he was “delighted” to endorse Biden in part because he embraces the politics of “decency.””I’m looking for a president who will draw out what is best in each of us, and I’m encouraging everybody who was part of my campaign to join me because we have found that leader in vice president, soon-to-be-president, Joe Biden,” Buttigieg said in Dallas, with Biden standing nearby.last_img read more

Results of the LIME DABA 2011 League Finals

first_imgKubuli/Vita Malt Division 1 FinalsIn the second game of the best of 5 series between the defending Champs, Wesley Raptors and the Goodwill Starz, the Goodwill Starz, who were down 0 – 1 in the series, informed the DABA just before tip-off time of their decision to forfeit the game, citing injuries and unavailability of keys players in addition to their suspended players. Although they would have been able to field a team of 7 seven players, they decided against playing the game and Wesley Raptors were awarded the win and now lead the best of 5 series 2 – 0. The Goodwill Starz will look to bounce back in game 3, when all their suspended players are due back into their line-up.Domlec Premier Division FinalsIn game 2 of the best of 5 series between the Gatorade Blazers and No Look, the Blazers were looking to go 2 games ahead after a hard fought game 1, which saw them victorious by 6 points. No Look had other things in mind and in game 2 on Friday night they took a commanding lead of 49 – 31 going into halftime. It was during the halftime break that there was a heavy downpour of rain, and this forced the DABA to postpone the second half of the game to Saturday night weather permitting. The game continued as planned on Saturday night, and No Look continued their dominance in the 3rd quarter, taking a commanding 64 – 41 lead going into the final quarter. The game looked like it was all over, however, a resilient Blazers team showed why they are perennial former Champions and stunned both the onlookers and the No Look team by battling back into the game with an array of 3 pointers and full court pressure defense leading to easy fast break baskets. With about 30 seconds left to play, the Blazers cut No Look’s lead to 5, but they were unable to convert on a series of 3 point attempts in their next possession, which pretty much sealed the win for No Look, who went on to win the game by the exact score of the first game 77 points to 71. Top scorers for No Look were Garth Joseph who scored a game high 30 points, Bernard Mills with 20 points, and Ken Leslie with 12 points, while Thomas Felix scored 21 points, Rickey Toussaint scored 13 points, and Lester Langlais and Jeff Jeremie each scored 10 points in a losing effort for the Blazers. Basketball fans can expect an exciting and tense game 3, as both teams will be trying to gain the advantage in the best of 5 series.Game 3 of both the Division 1 and Premier Division Finals will take place at the Lindo Park Hard court on Wednesday starting at 7pm sharp.Damien SorhaindoDominica Amateur Basketball Association Share Sharing is caring!

Clippers need to regroup for Game 6 after controversial loss to Oklahoma City Thunder

first_imgClippers coach Doc Rivers was asked late Tuesday night, after his team had blown a late 13-point lead and a very late seven-point lead, if he needed the league to issue a memo regarding that controversial play at the end that resulted in the Oklahoma city Thunder retaining possession of the ball.“No, I don’t need it,” said Rivers, whose team lost 105-104 in Game 5 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, giving the Thunder a 3-2 series lead in the Western Conference semifinals. Game 6 is at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Staples Center.“I’ll release the memo,” Rivers said. “They blew the call. That’s the news, all right?”The play of which Rivers spoke was an out-of-bounds play where the ball certainly appeared to go off OKC’s Reggie Jackson. The officials reviewed the play, but stayed with the call made on the floor because, as they stated afterward, the replay was inconclusive in their minds. Interestingly, Jackson appeared like he might have been fouled by Matt Barnes on that same play, but no call. The Thunder took the ball out with 11.3 seconds left. Chris Paul was then called for a foul on Russell Westbrook, who was beyond the arc. He made all three free throws with 6.4 seconds to go, and when Paul uncharacteristically committed his fifth turnover of the game in the last couple of seconds, OKC had staged a successful rally akin to the one the Clippers had two days earlier in Game 4.So what’s the answer to getting a replay system to work better than the one currently in place?“The answer is to get it right,” Rivers said.All that said, the Clippers were greatly responsible for their demise in Game 5. They had the Thunder right where they wanted them. Rivers acknowledged his team waited too long in the closing minutes to run its offense. He added the defense, which had been played so well by Barnes and others on struggling Kevin Durant, also broke down, allowing Durant to score 10 of his 27 points in the final 4:11 after Jamal Crawford had given the Clippers a 101-88 lead with a 3-point basket.That’s not to mention Paul committed two of his five turnovers in the waning seconds. “It’s a tough blow, it’s a very tough blow, but we’re still alive,” said Barnes, who scored 16 points with 10 rebounds and did a terrific job on Durant most of the game; Durant started 3 of 17 from the field and finished 6 of 22. “We’ve got to go home and try and take care of business on Thursday and try to come back to OKC on Sunday (for Game 7).“We have to rebound,” Barnes said. “We have to be resilient. We have to regroup. There was stuff down the stretch that caused us that loss, too. We have to go back and watch film and try to be better on Thursday.”It’s been a hectic postseason for the Clippers, to say the least, what with the ongoing Donald Sterling saga. This was just another in a long line of tough circumstances from which Los Angeles has been faced with overcoming.“Another blow,” Rivers said in the postgame news conference. “Hell, we’ve been absorbing them all playoffs, so we got another one. And we have 48 hours to gather ourselves, get back on the court and get ready to play. And we can do it.”Game 5 is one the Clippers must forget, reserve guard Darren Collison said.“We’ll be feeling better by the time the next game starts,” said Collison, who scored just one point in nine minutes Tuesday. “If we do the right things, we can definitely compete with the best of them.“I thought we played exceptionally well the whole game besides the last minute, so there’s a lot of things we can take from this game. We’ve just got to leave this in the past and take care of the next one.”The Clippers led 104-97 with 49.2 seconds left after a Paul 17-footer. He pounded his chest and glared into the crowd. Then it all fell apart. But OKC coach Scott Brooks was quick to point out his team had a lot to do with it.“Last game, we had some tough situations go against us,” said Brooks, referring to his team’s Game 4 loss, in which it held a 16-point lead with just over nine minutes to play. “And one of the things I tell our guys is, we play through everything. We’re a no-excuse team, you fight through everything. The game of basketball is played until the clock goes down.“Also, the last play of the game. Russsell, obviously, he steps up and makes three big free throws. But the defensive stop we had the last six seconds; they still had a chance to win that game. They (his players) did a good job of communicating on switches. Serge (Ibaka) did a god job of staying in front of Chris Paul and Reggie (Jackson) did a good job of slapping at the ball. I thought that was the winning play of the game.”Rivers and the Clippers might disagree.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
