At 11:13 PM on Saturday, February 29, 2020, businessman Tom Steyer and the poorer of the 2020 billionaire candidates, officially suspended his campaign for President.Continue reading “Farewell Tom Steyer”
This past week has had a debate, an election, and an FEC deadline, and Pete Buttigieg still topped the email charts. Despite all of these events, the email peak is one of its lowest ever, and we lost another candidate in Tom Steyer.Continue reading “Week 41: February 23-February 29, 2020”
South Carolina polls are closing, and my delegate maps will be updated soon. Regardless, the candidates are focusing more on fundraising for their FEC deadline than getting out the vote in South Carolina. Only Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren are asking me to help them in the final hours before the primary.Continue reading “Day 284: 2/28/20”
In half an hour from this post going live, the ninth Democratic Presidential debates will begin on CBS. I’ll try to be live-tweeting and let you know if anyone is emailing during the debates.
We’re back up to 7 candidates on the debate stage, so I decided to look at their emailed negativity.Continue reading “Debate 10”
The weekend held the Nevada Caucus, the first time we had a winner definitely declared the same day the voting was carried out: Bernie Sanders. Delegates are still being awarded, but at the moment, Sanders is leading the new delegate count by over 10, putting him in first place, with Pete Buttigieg in second and Joe Biden moving up to third.Continue reading “Days 278 and 279: 2/22/20-2/23/20”
This past week had both a debate and an election, and one of these events garnered more emails than the other. Overall, email volumes have dropped, and I suspect my worst days are behind me. Even FEC deadlines can’t be THAT bad anymore, as they’re coming too frequently now for the campaigns to keep thinking the sky is falling.
I hope.Continue reading “Week 40: February 16-February 22, 2020”
While the dust is settling after last night’s debate, it’s interesting to look back at what the candidates sent prior to the debate. Only Pete Buttigieg really gave an indication of how spicy the debate was going to be, with emails targeting Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg directly. Amy Klobuchar maintained her money-only email persona, while Joe Biden tried to reassure me that everything was still fine.Continue reading “Day 275: 2/19/20”
Pete Buttigieg made sure to let me know about the town hall he was participating in tonight, though interestingly, neither Bernie Sanders nor Amy Klobuchar brought theirs up. Everyone needed money, and Tulsi Gabbard reminded me of how bad everyone else was in her eyes.Continue reading “Day 274: 2/18/20”
Monday was a day to ask for money, though, to be fair, any day ending in y is a day to ask for money. Pete Buttigieg had the biggest variety of asks, though that had to do with the fact that he sent the biggest number of emails. Amy Klobuchar did not like the possessive apostrophe. Joe Biden really doesn’t want me to ignore him.Continue reading “Day 273: 2/17/20”
The weekend marked one week until the Nevada Caucuses. Early voting has begun, which meant candidates were trying to get me to call into Nevada for them. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren wanted me to vote right now, and Amy Klobuchar reminded me that her emails tell a very different story than her public appearances.Continue reading “Days 271 and 272: 2/15/20-2/16/20”
