I’ve been getting a bazillion emails from the various Democratic candidates for Presidents. The FEC deadline is coming up on Monday, September 30 and the campaigns will be reporting their numbers soon thereafter. It’s an important inflection point for the campaigns, because if they can report good fundraising, that will generate positive buzz and more…fundraising. Likewise, if their numbers are anemic, it might signal that the end is near. There are 12 candidates on the stage for the next debate – October 15/16. The rest might be done for if their numbers aren’t good.
I have donated $20 each of the last two months and I figure I can afford $20 per month for the foreseeable future. Might as well make a post out of it, so here we are.
In July, I gave $5 each to Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, and Kirsten Gillibrand. Three out of those four candidates are still around. In August, I gave $5 each to Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Andrew Yang, and Julian Castro. This month, I’ve decided to donate to the top 4 in my rankings – Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Beto O’Rourke. I’m also going to chip in $5 to Fair Fight 2020, Stacey Abrams’ organization that is trying to work on voter access across the country.
