REPORT: Biden Tells Supporters He’s Running, Needs Help Raising Big Money
Are you ready for Uncle Joe? Because it’s happening!
At least according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. And also he needs money, lots and lots of money, and fast.
From the WSJ:
Former Vice President Joe Biden reached out to at least a half dozen supporters Tuesday to tell them he intends to run for president and to ask for their help in lining up contributions from major donors so he can quickly raise several million dollars, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Mr. Biden has expressed concern to these people that he wouldn’t be able to raise millions of dollars in online donations immediately the way some other Democratic candidates have, including former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, this person said. Mr. O’Rourke raised $6.1 million in the 24 hours after his announcement, while Mr. Sanders collected $5.9 million in the same period.
Mr. Biden wants to announce a large fundraising number after his candidacy is official to better compete in what is often dubbed the “money primary” that kicks off a presidential season.
Up until now, the former Vice President has hemmed and hawed about entering the race, saying he hadn’t yet made a decision. We all knew that eventually, he’d toss his hat into the ring.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
He’d better hurry…other peoples’ money is going to be spread pretty thin. Robert O’Rourke and Bernie are already sucking up big bucks.
And then comes the main event against a sitting President Trump who is younger than the two front-running dems.
The election cycle for the year 2020 may be the most entertaining in our lifetime.
‘68 was good.
So, how much have the Obamas pledged?
None, they are saving up for Michelle’s campaign.
She/he/it would be wiped out in short order.
Le Bron James and oprah might vote for her/he/it, but the vetting this time around would be real: she/he/it would probably wind-up being caught in the same kind of college scandal lori laughlin and her daughters have found themselves in.
Michelle couldn’t have punched her way out of a law school paper bag. Neither could that idiot she poses next to. Biggest frauds in American history.
Here. This will help.
Grope and Chains!
Doesn’t the “China Money” Biden family already have enough dough to be self funding? Or did they blow it all?
Jesus, hide the children.
Joe Biden: a mile wide, and an inch deep. He’s as corrupt as hillary clinton, as loyal to America as barack obama, and as bright as alexandra cortez.
Joe wants lots of money, and everybody’s teenage daughters.
Any age will do.
I love Corvettes and have been around this world longer than Corvettes have. So has Joe Biden. Joe Biden DEFILES the essence of what a Corvette stands for.
Spend your money, have your fun. Even creepers like Biden can have the fun of owning one.
His creepy-ass aviator sun glasses, hair plugs and implanted teeth will never conceal the creeper that lies beneath.
As it were, Hugh Hefner would have disowned and idiot-bastard like Joe.
Parsing the dregs of western civilization remains for arbiters with knowledge of such refined sophistication as Leisure Suit Larry, the Lounge Lizard.
Doesn’t he look a lot like Jerry Sandusky. Aren’t they both Pennsylvania boys?
keep running that mid life crisis pic of Biden. My sister buys Biden underwear for her hubby — creepy.
I’ve pointed out before that, without even considering political platforms, a big advantage for Trump and the Republicans in this next election cycle is the fact that the Dems are going to burn through billions just to determine who their candidate will be.
While there will still be billions spent on that final candidate against Trump in November, downstream Dems will be left starving for donor dollars.
There won’t be $70 million from California/Hollywood spent on Texas Senate seats. There won’t be $20 million from around the country to spend on a single House seat in Michigan. There won’t be millions left to spend on single Attorney General seats.
Republican donors will have a lot of dry powder to attack their Dem opponents down the stretch.
And whoever is lucky enough to “win” the chance to run against Trump will be so beat up in the primaries, Trump will trounce them.
Keep in mind too that Starbucks’ Schultz is still in the mix as the spoiler with a billion dollars to spend.
Joltin’ Joe, standing with his shotgun on the back porch of the White House, defends Democracy from those varmint Republicans just like he advised the average homeowner to defend his own home. Who could resist, who would not vote for that image.
