Farewell Wayne Messam

At 10:36 AM ET, on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, Wayne Messam, Mayor of Miramar, Florida suspended his Presidential campaign.

Unfortunately, Wayne did not ever send me a single email, and I had minimal data on him. Luckily for him (and me), that Discord guy who makes my art for these farewell posts was also a huge Wayne supporter and offered to guest-write this post. Take it away, Elysium!

Debate 4

In just a few minutes from this post going live, the fourth Democratic Presidential debates will begin on CNN. I’ll try to be live-tweeting and let you know if anyone is emailing during the debates.

I asked Twitter what they wanted to compare today, and they asked for four things:

  • What do the candidates talk about?
  • Who are the candidates negative toward?
  • What rhetorical devices are used?
  • How do they talk about their goals?

Notes:

  • Donor and non-donor emails are not separated for these counts. Gray bars indicate total emails sent since May 21.
  • Totals might not add up to 100% because candidates could talk about multiple things in the same email, be negative toward multiple groups in the same email, or use multiple rhetorical devices in the same email.

Pete Buttigieg High-Dollar Fundraiser

Chasten Buttigieg emailed me, inviting me to a South Bend fundraiser for his husband, Pete Buttigieg. Ticket prices began at $250 and went all the way up to $2,800.

Like the Cha-stans #TeamPete is, the moment I mentioned Chasten wanted $250 from me, my readers stepped up and bought me a ticket with 24 small-dollar donations. Of course I had to go. Go and report back on the bribery and corruption that occurs at these high-dollar fundraisers! After all, multiple other candidates have warned me about them. It’s only fair that I tell you what Buttigieg gets up to in his expensive time!

Edit: 9/19, 8:15 AM Now with pictures from the incredible Cynthia Miller, AKA Lady in Blue!

Edit 2: 9/19, 10:37 AM Now on Medium!

Debate 3

In just a few minutes from this post going live, the third Democratic Presidential debates will begin on ABC. I’ll try to be live-tweeting and let you know if anyone is emailing during the debates.

Now, everyone is talking about who’s going to win tonight, but let’s be honest: everyone’s a winner in their own way!

Note: Donor and non-donor emails are not separated for these counts. Gray bars indicate total emails sent since May 21.
