Today effectively marks the end of the primary election season and the true beginning of the general elections. It’s not only one of the last primary days but one of the biggest, including Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Wisconsin. [Ed. note: Jon will be liveblogging results all night. Delaware polls close at 8pm EDT, with a number of others closing at 9. Look for results and reaction at FDL's Elections page.]

Seriously? This is the person Zuckerman thinks should be representing New York as a member of Congress?
I’m sure someone at the Daily News must know that fifteen of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, two were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Lebanon and one was from Egypt. That leaves exactly “zero” from Afghanistan who “attacked us.”

Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Barney Frank (D-MA) have sent a new letter to the President, requesting a personal meeting with him about nominating Elizabeth Warren as the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. This is an escalation of the earlier action spearheaded by Maloney, which resulted in 63 members of the House and 12 Senators coming out in support of Warren’s nomination.

Thirty-nine Democrats, including a substantial portion of the House Financial Services Committee, have signed on to a letter distributed by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) supporting Elizabeth Warren to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that will come into being as part of the financial reform bill to be signed today by the President. Warren, a favorite of progressives, invented the concept of a federal consumer protection agency for financial products, yet some reports with anonymous sources say top officials at the White House are resisting naming her to be the first director of the agency.

Earlier this month, Rep. Carolyn Maloney – one of the members of Congress who fought to protect 9/11 cleanup workers, and who is continuing that advocacy for workers cleaning up BP’s oil disaster – called on OSHA to explain how it would enforce the government’s respirator guidelines. Maloney also pressed the agency in charge of worker health and safety for more details on how it’s protecting workers in the Gulf.

Apparently, controlling the Federal Reserve, funding their bonuses with billions in taxpayer dollars and quite nearly bringing down the global economy with their degenerate gambling habits isn’t enough.
Wall Street now wants to punish any Democrat who lifts a hand against them, and they’re willing to fund primary challenges to do it.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney took to the floor of the House of Representatives this morning to speak about the need to protect the health of cleanup workers responding to the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Knowing OSHA’s poor track record at enforcing laws during times of crisis, like the 9/11 cleanup, Maloney saw the situation unfolding in the Gulf and spoke out about the need to protect the health of cleanup workers, as she put it, “before they lose it.” Watch the video.

Following the passage of the House health care bill, the outcry against Bart Stupak’s amendment from pro-choice members of Congress was stentorious. Rep. Diana DeGette and Rep. Louise Slaughter co-authored a letter signed by 41 members of Congress, which says quite clearly:
We will not vote for a conference report that contains language that restricts women’s right to choose any further than current law.
