The Trump campaign has raised nearly $25 million in 24 hours following Trump's announcement that he was seeking re-election.

 

Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) released the following tweet early this morning:

 

@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #trump2020 #KeepAmericaGreat

 

 

Biden raised $6.3 million on his first day, O'Rourke $6.1 million and Sanders $5.9 million.

The breakdown: $10.8M from "major donors," $8M through a phone campaign, and $6M in online donations. But get this: the average online donation was $44, so Trump was on par with each of the Dem candidates through these small donations alone.

Just under an 1 1/2 years of unprecedented campaigning (just guessing).

^Arguably Trump has been actively campaigning throughout his entire term thus far. I think we've reached a point where he's never not-campaigning. (If campaigning is defined as talking himself up without regard for facts or greater values than his self interest, every single day).

^ Trump filed his re-election campaign documents on the same day he was inaugurated, and never really stopped having campaign rallies

Did Warren speak Cherokee, and if so, was it Jeep Grand Cherokee or just Jeep Cherokee?

I'd probably swap Bennet and Yang, but otherwise I agree. And both of them are ultimately irrelevant also-rans anyway.

 

Warren and Castro were definitely the winners on Wednesday; Harris and Buttigieg last night. Time for 3/4 of the other folks to start withdrawing.

but wait, there's more. i can't say i blame the north koreans, considering all the military-industrial-intelligence complex assets in the US media though it sure doesn't look good for them
 

The incoming White House press secretary became embroiled in a scuffle with North Korean officials during a brawl between reporters and the country’s security guards.

Stephanie Grisham was left with bruises after chaotic scenes saw officials shoving and attempting to block the press.

The jostling came as Donald Trump became the first sitting US president to enter North Korean soil – stepping over from the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to shake hands with the North Korean leader.

The fracas intensified as reporters tried to enter a room inside the Freedom House on the southern side of Panmunjom where Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un were meeting after exchanging initial handshakes on the border.

North Korean guards tried to physically prevent members of the US press pool from entering the room, pushing and shoving, and the Secret Service stepped in to intervene.

and then this

A new report shows one of the most popular websites about presidential contender Joe Biden is in fact a mocking dig at the former vice president created by a consultant for Republicans and President Donald Trump.

The New York Times reported about the website’s origins Saturday, saying it is designed to look like a pro-Biden website, but it actually mocks him through the use of gifs and various blurbs about Biden’s past unpopular positions like his opposition to court-ordered busing in the 1970s and his support for the Iraq war.

In the website’s fine print, it says it is a work of parody and paid for “BY AN American citizen FOR American citizens,” though it says it is not the work of any campaign.

The New York Times reports Republican strategist Patrick Mauldin, who makes digital content for Trump’s re-election campaign, is behind the site. Mauldin told the Times that he created the website independent of his work for the Trump campaign.

I wonder if Donald is prepping the field for a Trump-Trump 2020 ticket....

 

"Donald Trump has been accused of taking nepotism to alarming new depths after giving his daughter, Ivanka, a prominent role in meetings with the G20 and Kim Jong-un."

In its ruling, the Supreme Court held that federal courts can do nothing about extreme partisan gerrymandering, in which incumbents draw voting districts to ensure that the party in power stays in power indefinitely. With this decision, the court sanctioned an insidious practice in which politicians pick their voters, rather than the other way around.

The two cases before the court clearly demonstrate the egregious nature of extreme gerrymandering. In the North Carolina case, the state legislature and governor enacted a redistricting plan designed to ensure that ten of thirteen of North Carolina’s congressional seats went to Republicans, even though Democratic candidates typically receive about half of the votes statewide. The architect of the redistricting plan was crystal clear on the intent:

We are “draw[ing] the maps to give a partisan advantage to 10 Republicans and 3 Democrats because [i] d[o] not believe it[’s] possible to draw a map with 11 Republicans and 2 Democrats.” I think electing Republicans is better than electing Democrats. So I drew this map to help foster what I think is better for the country.”

The state of Pennsylvania is on the cusp of approving a major piece of voter suppression legislation ahead of the 2020 election, despite a Democrat serving as governor.

The bill, passed largely along party lines with nearly universal opposition from Democrats in the state legislature, is on the governor’s desk. If signed into law, it would ban what’s known as “straight-ticket” voting, which allows a voter to cast a ballot for all Democrats, or all Republicans, at once. Because precincts in Democratic areas of the state, particularly in Philadelphia, are heavily under-resourced relative to the size of the voting population, banning straight-ticket voting would mean much longer lines at the polls, as each voter needs more time behind the curtain. Studies have shown the longer lines depress Democrat turnout significantly.

The ban is a longtime goal of Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel. In late 2015, Republicans succeeded in banning straight-ticket voting in Michigan, spurring litigation that lasted for a couple of years.
