Monday brought a fresh flood of emails from Julian Castro, while Joe Sestak hit a major milestone in a campaign and Joe Biden worried about someone else’s electibility.Continue reading “Day 168: 11/4/19”
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”
More corrections: Beto O’Rourke’s “defense” of Tulsi Gabbard that I mentioned yesterday was actually a response to one specific aspect of the entire situation. The question had been cut out of the clip I watched, so I incorrectly assumed he was dismissing the entire thing. His actual response was more along the lines of “this isn’t helping anyone” and not getting involved. I’ve changed yesterday’s post to reflect this.
Julian Castro sent a lot of emails, Cory Booker and Pete Buttigieg both offered up their partners for money, and Joe Biden is being transparent about public information. All of this and more happened over the weekend!Continue reading “Days 152 and 153: 10/19/19-10/20/19”
Friday was… alarming. Candidates stopped being coy about their negativity and started calling other Democrats out by name. Bernie Sanders, Julian Castro, and Tulsi Gabbard all lashed out with names. John Delaney was at least subtle about it. However, the growling was definitely there.Continue reading “Day 151: 10/18/19”
Have I really been writing this blog for 150 days? Wow!
Now that the initial debate buzz has worn off, the campaigns can start talking about other things. Kamala Harris chose to discuss FEC numbers, as did Joe Biden. Steve Bullock felt a fresh wave of energy as a new poll showed him doing well in Iowa. And Elizabeth Warren had her whole team calling donors.Continue reading “Day 150: 10/17/19”
The day after debate day is an interesting day. Campaigns are flush with new names on their mailing lists and trying to make a great first impression for these new eyeballs…
Oh, wait, no. No, they just want to talk about how much money they made (or didn’t make) in the 24 hours after the debate, and maybe recap a little about what happened.Continue reading “Day 149: 10/16/19”
October 15 was a monumental day in the Democratic primary. All of the campaigns had to make their Q3 finances public, and we were finally able to scrutinize the numbers some were excited about, and some tried to hide.
Oh yeah, it was also debate day…Continue reading “Day 148: 10/15/19”
On Friday, National Coming Out Day, Julian Castro and Tom Steyer explicitly celebrated, while Kamala Harris simply dropped her plan. Pete Buttigieg began another fundraising push, and Cory Booker knows my weakness.Continue reading “Day 144: 10/11/19”
Yesterday, in my inbox: John Delaney doesn’t understand the meaning of “a lot,” Elizabeth Warren does understand the meaning of “a lot,” and Julian Castro has a new most important ask ever.Continue reading “Day 140: 10/7/19”
Over the weekend, most of the candidates were interested in the debates. Julian Castro was reminding us that he’s always been the underdog, while Bernie Sanders was trying to convince me he still was the underdog. Meanwhile, Joe Sestak was kicking off a campaign movement (literally).Continue reading “Days 138 and 139: 10/5/19-10/6/19”
