That debate last night was… a total cluster. The moderators had no control over the stage, cutting off actual substantial discussions, favoring certain candidates, and letting others ramble well beyond their time. The crowd was cheering and booing with no warnings to behave, and almost nobody got a joke to land. It was not a good final showing before Super Tuesday.Continue reading “Day 281: 2/25/20”
February is proving to be a busy month. The caucus on Saturday has led into town halls on Monday and Wednesday evening and a debate on Tuesday evening, with another primary this Saturday to go along with the FEC deadline.
Despite all of that, the candidates are emailing at their standard pace, which yes, means Pete Buttigieg is sending about a quarter of the entire day’s emails.Continue reading “Day 280: 2/24/20”
As of the time of this writing, the Nevada caucus has not even happened. Check back tomorrow for results… if we have them. Or follow my Twitter for more timely results.
Friday was a day of asking for volunteers, but also of asking for money. It was also a day of surprisingly good emails, as both Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg wrote emails that nearly triggered me to donate.Continue reading “Day 277: 2/21/20”
Thursday brought a new field to the Ask chart, which Pete Buttigieg started using, a new round of FEC filings, which Mike Bloomberg was either winning or losing, depending on what you counted, and some more town halls that I didn’t know about until Joe Biden told me they were over.Continue reading “Day 276: 2/20/20”
While the dust is settling after last night’s debate, it’s interesting to look back at what the candidates sent prior to the debate. Only Pete Buttigieg really gave an indication of how spicy the debate was going to be, with emails targeting Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg directly. Amy Klobuchar maintained her money-only email persona, while Joe Biden tried to reassure me that everything was still fine.Continue reading “Day 275: 2/19/20”
Pete Buttigieg made sure to let me know about the town hall he was participating in tonight, though interestingly, neither Bernie Sanders nor Amy Klobuchar brought theirs up. Everyone needed money, and Tulsi Gabbard reminded me of how bad everyone else was in her eyes.Continue reading “Day 274: 2/18/20”
Monday was a day to ask for money, though, to be fair, any day ending in y is a day to ask for money. Pete Buttigieg had the biggest variety of asks, though that had to do with the fact that he sent the biggest number of emails. Amy Klobuchar did not like the possessive apostrophe. Joe Biden really doesn’t want me to ignore him.Continue reading “Day 273: 2/17/20”
On Valentine’s Day, I got fewer cutesy, loving emails than I expected. Of the three I received, Amy Klobuchar’s made me a little uncomfortable, Joe Biden’s made me a lot uncomfortable, and Pete Buttigieg’s made me smile.Continue reading “Day 270: 2/14/20”
With only 8 candidates left in the race, my inbox is finally starting to calm down. Mike Bloomberg let me know he was turning 78 on Valentine’s Day, while Amy Klobuchar asked me to fill out a survey and Tom Steyer wanted to talk about reparations.Continue reading “Day 269: 2/13/20”
The day after New Hampshire was quiet, as the field stared at the fallen campaigns of Andrew Yang and Michael Bennet. Joe Biden tried to cheer up his troops, and Elizabeth Warren encouraged her supporters to work through their grief. Bernie Sanders braced for new attacks, and Pete Buttigieg likes pizza.Continue reading “Day 268: 2/12/20”
