At 9:27 AM on Friday, January 31, 2020, John Delaney, former U.S. Representative for Maryland’s 6th Congressional district, officially suspended his campaign for President, surprising many for one of two reasons: either they didn’t realize he was still running, or they thought he’d actually stick it out through Iowa.Continue reading “Farewell John Delaney”
It was the first FEC deadline of the year, and one of the candidates just couldn’t take the pressure. Mike Bloomberg had a little mental vacation in the middle of one of his emails, Elizabeth Warren kept trying to sell me a pin, and Joe Biden resorted to openly begging me for money.Continue reading “Day 256: 1/31/20”
Thursday was the day before an FEC deadline, and the email count is ramping up. Andrew Yang has some new merchandise for me, while Tom Steyer didn’t bother to get in my inbox–why would he need money? Bernie Sanders is fighting everyone and everyone is fighting him, while Pete Buttigieg remains the most consistently positive.Continue reading “Day 255: 1/30/20”

Only Bernie Sanders didn’t bother to mention the day that Tulsi Gabbard called “the most important of American holidays.”Continue reading “Day 245: 1/20/20”
Over the weekend, Pete Buttigieg turned 38, Michael Bennet said thank you, and Bernie Sanders was disappointing.Continue reading “Days 243 and 244: 1/18/20-1/19/20”
I was expecting a massive surge with the debate this week, but it didn’t really manifest. I was not expecting Cory Booker to drop out just before the debate. Nor was I expecting Pete Buttigieg to finally name-drop another candidate.Continue reading “Week 35: January 12-January 18, 2020”
Thursday brought some excitement (and desperation) from Michael Bennet and budget woes from Elizabeth Warren, but it was Pete Buttigieg who made me pay attention.Continue reading “Day 241: 1/16/20”
