This past week had lows and highs. We lost three candidates and gained some new righteous anger. Elizabeth Warren is doing call time again, while Pete Buttigieg keeps releasing policies. And Julian Castro is demonstrating imitation being the highest form of flattery.Continue reading “Week 29: December 1-7”
This past week was quite hectic, what with the holiday and the end of the month! Joe Biden lost track of his emotions, Julian Castro reveled in his original form, and Marianne Williamson asked me to respond to the statement that resonated with me.Continue reading “Week 28: November 24-30”
Yes, Michael Bloomberg announced his candidacy on Sunday, and yes, he’s starting to show up on my charts today, but I won’t actually officially count him until tomorrow’s post.
Rest assured, I am very unhappy with these rich old guys thinking they can come in here and mess up my charts.
ANYWAY, this past week brought a lot of emails with the fifth Democratic debate in Atlanta, Georgia, and the end of the month fast approaching. Though there was a spike, it wasn’t as high as it had been in the past. Regardless, Julian Castro was determined to single-handedly change the conversation.Continue reading “Week 27: November 17-23”
This past week had a mid-month fundraising deadline and a new candidate entering the race. Tulsi Gabbard made Veterans Day an issue to be better than someone else over, Pete Buttigieg stopped letting us say “no” in his surveys, and John Delaney can’t figure out why he’s floundering.
In addition, I did a side-by-side comparison of Elizabeth Warren’s Transition to Medicare for All plan and Pete Buttigieg’s Medicare for All Who Want It plan on my Twitter account. Read it here!Continue reading “Week 26: November 10-16”
It hit me today: there are no political emails in my inbox I look forward to reading anymore. I used to like Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke, and Jay Inslee, but the latter two have dropped and Buttigieg’s emails are no longer an infrequent treat. Cory Booker will occasionally surprise me with a good one, but not nearly frequently enough for me to anticipate it. Sometimes Joe Sestak can make me laugh.
I never want to open a Julian Castro or Bernie Sanders email, and Elizabeth Warren’s are only ever enjoyable when she has new merch designs.Continue reading “Week 25: November 3-9”
The end of the month is always a busy week for campaign emails, and the end of October was no different. Between Julian Castro threatening to drop out, Kamala Harris slashing at her campaign to save money, and Beto O’Rourke actually dropping out, the week was very eventful. Of course, all of that paled in comparison to the Liberty and Justice dinner on Friday night.Continue reading “Week 24: October 27-November 2”
Over this past week, a lot of candidates were trying to raise money. It wasn’t all just Julian Castro moaning about being forced out of the race too soon.Continue reading “Week 23: October 20-26”
In light of recent events and recent emails, I think it’s important to look at who is going negative in the Democratic primary. Remember we are ultimately all on the same team. Vote Blue No Matter Who.
Last night, I was asked a question about how many times Pete Buttigieg called out another candidate by name. Of course, I couldn’t stop at just one candidate, so I wrote a whole Medium piece on my findings.Continue reading “Week 22: October 13-19”
Over the past week, the campaigns got their collective breath back. Beto O’Rourke and Julian Castro released their Q3 numbers, while Joe Biden tried to influence my donation amount in a less-sketchy way than the last time. The real disappointment of the week was Pete Buttigieg, however, with a less than stellar showing in the emails this week.Continue reading “Week 21: October 6-12”
The quarter ended and the wave of emails crashed over my inbox. Incentives to donate such as the possibility of a call from a candidate or free stickers washed away. A chorus of dutiful “Thank yous” and a few updates on goals were distributed, but the campaigns largely fell into silence after the quarter end.Continue reading “Week 20: September 29-October 5”
