On Thursday, 10 of the 25 candidates had finished their debates and another 10 were taking the stage. Of those, 18 who had qualified and 2 who hadn’t all reached out to me, for a total of 20 campaigns sending a whopping 58 emails!Continue reading “Day 38: 6/27/19”
I feel like every time I make a declaration on this blog, I need to walk back my words. Just yesterday, I called Pete Buttigieg out for “not typical political email spam.” Today, well…
With 36 emails rolling in from 19 campaigns, this was absolutely a busy day for everyone. It was the last day of contact before the debates, and the candidates were trying not to get nervous.
16 campaigns sent 31 emails yesterday. Did the campaigns know that Wednesday was the 30th day of BTE tracking, or was the spiciness yesterday just a coincidence? Regardless, after quite a few uneventful days, Cory Booker bared his teeth and snapped at a fellow Democrat.
1 technically-holiday weekend.
How the different campaigns celebrated Father’s Day certainly was…enlightening.
With 171 emails from 19 campaigns, we were just 1 email shy of tying with the weekly record. If I counted the 7 emails from PAC End Citizens United (ECU), we smashed it.
Despite the volume of emails, the week was fairly uninspiring. Most candidates were focused on the upcoming debates, qualifying for the debates, and hitting their personal mid-month deadlines.Continue reading “Week Four: June 9-June 15”
Wednesday was the deadline for candidates to qualify for the first debate, so there was a huge push of 28 emails from 18 campaigns. Some were long, but some were startlingly short.Continue reading “Day 23: 6/12/19”
This is the first full week since I started tracking with no obvious or official deadlines. I ended up with a total of 151 emails from 20 campaigns, which averaged to just over 7.5 emails per campaign, or a little more than 1 per day.
If you’ve read this blog long enough, you already know that no campaign has managed to hit that mythical 1 per day.Continue reading “Week Three: June 2-June 8”
19 campaigns. 26 emails. I’m noticing a definite trend toward end-of-week messages. As the primary is becoming serious with the debates in just under 3 weeks, everyone is starting to ramp up their mailing list game. Everyone except the usual suspects… and one surprise.Continue reading “Day 18: 6/7/19”
I thought 35 emails was a lot, but clearly I was unprepared for the last day of a month fundraising push. 17 campaigns sent a whopping 45 emails in just 24 hours! There were a lot of ups and downs emotionally, veiled threats, pleas, charts… so many charts!Continue reading “Day Eleven”
In an apparent attempt to make up for Monday’s lack of emails, 16 campaigns sent 28 emails yesterday. The most notable was the last one of the night, as it was the first from Mike Gravel. As May wraps up, more candidates are trying anything to fill their war chests.
