first_imgStudents will gather in Alumni Park today to hear President Barack Obama speak at the “Moving American Forward” rally for senatorial candidate Sen. Barbara Boxer and gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown.Boxer is currently locked in a tight race for California’s senate seat against Republican candidate Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, while Brown is facing off against Republican Meg Whitman, the former CEO of eBay.The stop at USC is one of many for the president, who recently visited the University of Wisconsin and the University of Washington.“The Democrats are trying dramatically to reconstitute the coalition that came out to vote in record numbers in 2008, and the youth vote was a significant part of that,” said Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, an expert in state politics and a senior fellow at the School of Policy, Planning, and Development.Politicians across the nation are visiting campuses to raise support for Democratic candidates in the upcoming midterm elections. Last week, former President Bill Clinton visited UCLA to raise votes for Brown and Gavin Newsom, the San Francisco mayor who is running for state lieutenant governor.Boxer is leading Fiorina in the polls with an expected 51 percent voter support, according to a recent poll conducted by USC and the Los Angeles Times.“This is the firewall. If Boxer goes, you can almost be firm that the Democrats will lose the senate,” Jeffe said. “This is a seat that should never get this close.”Jeffe said the race between Brown and Whitman was trending more toward a Brown victory, but it’s too early to tell.“Where Brown has made the most dramatic increase in support is among Latinos,” she said. “The question is whether that support turns into action in the polls.”Brown leads Whitman with 49 percent support, according to the USC/LAT poll.The purpose of Obama’s visit, Jeffe said, is to raise support for the election among Democratic voters.“Republicans appear to be more enthusiastic. If that happens, the Democrats are going to lose significant races,” she said.Micah Scheindlin, political director for the USC College Democrats, said he believed targeting college students is a smart move to get votes.“The president and the White House know they come here and they are going to get thousands of college students,” Scheindlin said. “I think that everyone claims that is the issue — that Democrats need to energize their base, and nothing energizes them like a rally.”Rally attendees can enter the event at 10 a.m. Obama will speak at 1:30 p.m. in Alumni Park. Actor and singer Jamie Foxx will perform.last_img read more

first_imgA man who stole a cigarette machine from a pub has been jailed for eight months.Grigore Adamache, was part of a three man gang who broke into the Glencar Inn in Letterkenny and made off with the machine. The men had been caught trying to steal the machine earlier on the night of November 25th last but were spotted by drinkers and fled.However they returned and broke into the pub and stole the machine valued at €2,000 as well as cash and cigarettes to the value of €1,035 in the machine.The 23 year old, of 118 Meadowbank in Letterkenny, pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared at Letterkenny District Court today.He also admitted breaking into adjoining homes at Ashbrook, Letterkenny, on November 11th.Adamache, a Romanian national, admitted being part of the gang who ransacked the houses and stole laptops, alcohol, cash and jewellery.However, he claimed he only acted as lookout for the gang and only got two packets of cigarettes for helping to steal the cigarette machine.Judge Paul Kelly said these types of offences are all too common and said families faced devastation when they returned home to find their properties had been ransacked.He sentenced Adamache to four months for breaking into each house but ordered the sentences to run concurrently and also another four month sentence for stealing the cigarette machine, meaning he will serve a total of eight months in jail.Man jailed for eight months for stealing pub’s cigarette machine was last modified: December 15th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cigarette machinecourtsdonegalGardaiRansackedThe Glencar Innlast_img read more
