On Monday, March 2, 2020, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar officially dropped out of the 2020 Presidential race and endorsed Joe Biden… but she didn’t email to let me know until 11:59 AM the next day.Continue reading “Farewell Amy Klobuchar”
Monday brought a lot of endorsements for Joe Biden and a lot of anger from Tulsi Gabbard. It also brought very few emails for me.
As a note: tomorrow’s BTE may be delayed (or non-existent). I will be out of town all day with limited access to a computer.Continue reading “Day 287: 3/2/20”
We lost 2 candidates over the weekend, though Tom Steyer was considerate enough to end on a Saturday so he doesn’t get looped into another weekly recap. The focus of the emails was definitely on fundraising, with a sprinkling of South Carolina and Super Tuesday on top. Pete Buttigieg had the most varied asks for money, while Bernie Sanders was the only candidate who asked for my vote directly.Continue reading “Days 285 and 286: 2/29/20-3/1/20”
This past week has had a debate, an election, and an FEC deadline, and Pete Buttigieg still topped the email charts. Despite all of these events, the email peak is one of its lowest ever, and we lost another candidate in Tom Steyer.Continue reading “Week 41: February 23-February 29, 2020”
South Carolina polls are closing, and my delegate maps will be updated soon. Regardless, the candidates are focusing more on fundraising for their FEC deadline than getting out the vote in South Carolina. Only Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren are asking me to help them in the final hours before the primary.Continue reading “Day 284: 2/28/20”
Once again, Pete Buttigieg won Iowa after yet another recount. The state may certify their results on Saturday. Or maybe they’ll do another recount. I don’t know. At this point, Bernie Sanders still has 45 delegates, Pete Buttigieg still has 26, and Joe Biden’s 15 top out the top three candidates.Continue reading “Day 283: 2/27/20”
Wednesday had no debates, though it did have some town halls (though only Joe Biden told me about his). Mike Bloomberg was still taking calls for marketing purposes, and Pete Buttigieg sent a real gem of an email.Continue reading “Day 282: 2/26/20”
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”
In half an hour from this post going live, the ninth Democratic Presidential debates will begin on CBS. I’ll try to be live-tweeting and let you know if anyone is emailing during the debates.
We’re back up to 7 candidates on the debate stage, so I decided to look at their emailed negativity.Continue reading “Debate 10”
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”
