Joe Biden is cranking up his email machine.
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!

Biden, on the other hand, invited me to several volunteer events (one in Michigan, one in Ohio) and pointed out that unfortunately, they didn’t get the donation surge they were counting on from Michigan, and therefore Trump outraised them and they were falling behind and…
And I’m just ready for this election to be over. One man hates me, both men want my money… I just want to stop hearing about the President for a week. That’s what I want.
