Week 13 marks the 100th post on But Their Emails! I need to give huge kudos to Tirra, who designed my logo and managed to pull it straight out of my brain, and BroadCityChessClub who suggested the name. For the 100th post, I thought I’d give you a fun fact: the original Twitter handle I got when I signed up for this blog was @their_but. I decided to change it for… reasons.
But it did make me laugh.
In Week 13, John Hickenlooper dropped out, Kamala Harris really wants money, and Beto O’Rourke has a heart.Continue reading “Week 13: August 11-August 17”
On Friday, Joe Biden announced that Bernie Sanders announced that Sanders had raised $47.5 million total and Biden needed to step up his fundraising game. Then Joe Sestak announced that Joe Biden announced that Bernie Sanders announced that Sanders had raised $47.5 million and Biden needed to step up his fundraising game and therefore this clearly meant that Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders were both scared of Joe Sestak.

Over the weekend, Tim Ryan figured out how targeted emails works, Jay Inslee went full super hero, and Joe Biden was exaggerating his difficulties.Continue reading “Days 82 and 83: 8/10/19-8/11/19”
Last weekend, there were two mass shootings in America, coming fresh off another mass shooting just last week. While Beto O’Rourke, Julian Castro, and Tim Ryan called the victims their constituents, it was clear that none of the candidates knew how to campaign in the immediate aftermath of a tragedy. The email count dropped sharply.Continue reading “Week 12: August 4-August 10”

On Thursday: Joe Biden gave an “exclusive” code to everyone, Pete Buttigieg wants to grab a pizza with me, and Tulsi Gabbard scored a new endorsement.
Also, But Their Emails! got its first media mention! Thanks to The Detroit News for the shout-out, and welcome new readers from that website!Continue reading “Day 80: 8/8/19”
Content warning: There will be more talk of the weekend’s events in this post.
As the candidates resume their campaigns, their debate dreams are top priority. Candidates who haven’t qualified for September yet are pushing for donations and polls.
