Thursday was for some big names in the Joe Biden emails.
For all new readers: Welcome! I am currently on the mailing lists of Joe Biden and Donald Trump, though I have previously been on the mailing lists of 28 Democratic candidates! This blog breaks down recent emails with charts and excerpts. If you already know all of this, feel free to skip to the next chart!
It took some time for the Trump emails to kick in, so I started officially tracking his list on July 7. I have been tracking Biden’s for longer, but I will start comparing them as of July 7. All of these emails are going to a new email, and I have not donated, filled out surveys, signed petitions, or otherwise interacted with either candidate’s emails.
The rules I try to follow for the various categories are laid out in The Framework.
3 emails on Thursday, with 1 coming from Elizabeth Warren and 1 coming from Julian Castro.
Elizabeth was writing to talk about how her favorite part of campaigning was getting to talk to people, so if I donated, I could get a phone call from her and Joe Biden. Julian was writing to let me know that no one would worker harder for the most vulnerable in American than Biden. Both of them wanted me to donate.
(Julian did not use “humble” or reference any member of his family. I don’t think he wrote this email.)
Those two emails were the fundraising ones. The petition email covered Trump’s latest attempt to rip away the ACA and asked me to sign on to save it.
It has been 25 days since Pride month began, and we still haven’t even gotten a full sentence about it in an email.
