    I believe they're quite effective in the short term, quite honestly.

    Kamala is getting so much praise by CNN and MSNBC but I find her very unlikeable compared to Booker so if they want to push another part black candidate I think he is a better choice. If they want a woman then go with Warren. I don't think I will vote for either in the primary.

    They're doing it again



    They undermine our campaign at every turn then they blame us for voting third party. Fuck the corporate establishment.

    Unable to post a link right now but I was wrong about the second debate being twelve candidates. It pretty much the same criteria as the first one. Two nights with ten candidates in each so we mostly are just going to get them mixed on different stages. It’s the debate in September where the criteria is raised and currently under those criteria, only eight would qualify so the amount included is going to have a sharp decline after this July debate. It’s make or break for anyone polling under 2%

    Wait, there's a July debate? I thought the next debate was in September?

    Edit: I see now. July 30--31. 14 candidates have already qualified, so there are six more slots open.

    Already qualified: Buttigieg, Sanders, O'Rourke, Biden, Harris, Warren, Klobuchar, Booker, Castro, Inslee (!), Gabbard, Williamson (!!), Yang, Gillibrand.

    That quote about Tulsi is spot on and it will take an even tempered person to beat Trump. I dont think Kamala would be well liked enough and warren would get destroyed by trump. Bernie is bernie, theres no secrets. Hes bold and everybody knows what hes all about because hes been saying the same things for a while

    Buttigieg campaign multiplies in size after huge cash haul

    This is what can make or break some campaigns before Iowa. A lack of fundraising can leave a campaign stagnant. Even surges in cash can be problematic if they are mismanaged.

    It seems to be the highest pushed one. I usually look at Politico, WP, Bloomberg, NYT, and Vox and almost all of them made an article just like this yesterday.

    Marianne Williamson did a nice thing. Take note Tulsi Gabbard.

    From: https://www.newsweek.com/marianne-w...-2020-candidate-mike-gravel-his-voice-1447957
    Marianne Williamson Campaign Sends Fundraising Email For Rival 2020 Candidate Mike Gravel: 'His Voice is Important'
    ...
    Williamson's campaign on Sunday sent out an email asking people to donate to her opponent Gravel — who served as a U.S. Senator from Alaska from 1969 to 1981 — because he's "only 10,000 donations short of qualifying for the July debates."
    ...
    "During his time in Senate, he garnered wide respect for his unabashed opposition to the Vietnam War and for reading the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record, risking expulsion from the Senate. Democracy is, by definition, for the people and by the people. Democracy thrives when brave men like Mike Gravel risk their careers to do what's just and right," she said, before asking her supporters and anyone else receiving emails from her campaign to "please send him to the July debate stage by donating $1 to the Mike Gravel campaign."
