At 5:40 PM ET, on Friday, November 1, 2019, Beto O’Rourke, former Congressman of Texas, became the first top ten candidate to drop out of the 2020 race.Continue reading “Farewell Beto O’Rourke”
Friday was… wow. Between the Liberty and Justice dinner in Des Moines, Iowa, where supporters of 14 candidates converged on the Wells Fargo arena for a dinner widely touted as “the place where candidates become Presidents” and Beto O’Rourke dropping out of the race, Friday had a surprising amount of activity for the first of the month.Continue reading “Day 165: 11/1/19”
Happy November, everyone! There have been some backend changes here at But Their Emails!
First of all: the URL has changed! We are now officially ButTheirEmails.com! The old BTE.home.blog will still work, but the new URL should be easier to remember and type.
We are also ad-free! Thanks to the generosity of donors (thank you, Teri!), BTE has proved self-sustaining enough to warrant an upgrade. No more icky right-wing ads will ruin your reading pleasure!
Ad-free costs money, though, so I also upgraded my Ko-Fi account. Now you can make a monthly reoccurring donation for set-it-and-forget-it ease! You can still buy me single Ko-Fis as well, though now it’s my favorite hot drink: cinnamon tea!
The current Ko-Fi goal is for seed money to set up some merchandise. I’m looking into partnering with BootEdgeEdgeMerch.com for a BTE line that I hope to get up and running soon. Those of you following me on Twitter have gotten some sneak peeks at some of the designs I’m working with an artist to bring to life. I’ll let you know when this goes live! (And for those of you who follow me but don’t support Buttigieg, don’t worry, my merch doesn’t support the Buttigieg campaign. The owner of BEEM is a friend of mine and that’s why I’m partnering with him–he knows what he’s doing already!)
With BTE updates out of the way, let’s look at Thursday! Halloween was a spooky day for my inbox, with over 100 emails and everyone trying to close out their fundraising goals. Elizabeth Warren was kind enough to bribe with a picture of herself in a Halloween costume, while other candidates changed their display name or provided cute pets or children in costumes as attempted bribes.Continue reading “Day 164: 10/31/19”
Wednesday was scary with the amount of fundraising emails I received! Kamala Harris is strapped for cash, while Bernie Sanders is setting up an Us vs Them dichotomy. Meanwhile, Pete Buttigieg is just happy to be in the race.Continue reading “Day 163: 10/30/19”
On Tuesday, Beto O’Rourke needed some polls, Marianne Williamson is asking for a lot of money again, and Joe Biden is sure Trump is sabotaging him.Continue reading “Day 162: 10/29/19”
Monday brought some bad Halloween puns from Cory Booker, some unusual fundraising claims from Julian Castro, and a new message from Kamala Harris.Continue reading “Day 161: 10/28/19”
Over the weekend, Joe Biden worried about his money, Marianne Williamson became a tsunami, and Kamala Harris was accused of flip-flopping.Continue reading “Days 159 and 160: 10/26/19-10/27/19”
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”
On Friday, Julian Castro is bullying his brother, Michael Bennet declared he has no slogan, and Bernie Sanders knows that Joe Biden is actually scared of him, not Trump.Continue reading “Day 158: 10/25/19”
Thursday brought a winnowing of the field, a happy Julian Castro, and a discussion on Super PACs.Continue reading “Day 157: 10/24/19”
