At 5:43 PM ET, on Thursday, October 24, 2019, Congressman Tim Ryan, representing Ohio’s 13th District, officially ended his Presidential campaign.Continue reading “Farewell Tim Ryan”
Thursday brought a winnowing of the field, a happy Julian Castro, and a discussion on Super PACs.Continue reading “Day 157: 10/24/19”
Monday was a day for dramatics. Julian Castro declared dire financial straits. Tulsi Gabbard (basically) declared war on the Democratic party. Bernie Sanders went all retro-pop-culture. And Joe Biden has… threatened… something?Continue reading “Day 154: 10/21/19”
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”
In light of recent events and recent emails, I think it’s important to look at who is going negative in the Democratic primary. Remember we are ultimately all on the same team. Vote Blue No Matter Who.
Last night, I was asked a question about how many times Pete Buttigieg called out another candidate by name. Of course, I couldn’t stop at just one candidate, so I wrote a whole Medium piece on my findings.Continue reading “Week 22: October 13-19”
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”
It was the last day before Debate Day, and the campaigns were preparing hard. Pete Buttigieg was looking for words of support, while Andrew Yang fretted about not getting enough donors in time. Tulsi Gabbard announced that she wouldn’t be boycotting the debates after all, and Beto O’Rourke went on the attack early.Continue reading “Day 147: 10/14/19”
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”
