Dems continue to shower male candidates with cash: Biden tops Bernie and Beto in 1st 24 hours

Dems continue to shower male candidates with cash: Biden tops Bernie and Beto in 1st 24 hours

Raised $6.3 million in 24 hours

If fundraising is any indicator, Biden is the man to beat. At least as of today, at least until he opens his mouth again.

According to Biden’s campaign, they raised $6.3 million in the first 24 hours, ousting both Sanders and Beto who had impressive opening days, raising $5.9 million and $6.1 million, respectively.

More from Politico:

Biden’s campaign launch sent the Democratic digital fundraising world in general into overdrive: About $7.6 million flowed through ActBlue, the party’s preferred online donation processor, on Thursday, according to the site. The daily average in the first three months of the year was $1.9 million.

It’s unclear exactly how much of that online money went to Biden’s nascent campaign, as his rivals for the Democratic nomination also tried to capitalize off the attention surrounding his launch.

Sanders, who is running as an outsider and is in second place to Biden in most polls, called on small-dollar donors to pitch in after Biden’s Thursday announcement. Sanders’ campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, signed two fundraising emails for his campaign with “Joe Biden” in the subject line amid allusions to upcoming high-dollar fundraising events for the former vice president.

…Biden’s Friday haul immediately led to howls from Sanders’ supporters on social media, where they quickly accused him of being in the pocket of lobbyists for taking money from industry insiders. They also noted that Sanders had far more contributors in his first day of fundraising, in their view a sign that the senator has a broader base of financial support from regular people and more room to tap his donor network for more money.

O’Rourke, Sen. Kamala Harris and Julián Castro’s campaigns were also among those who name-checked Biden in their own fundraising emails on Thursday.

On his first day as a candidate, Sanders brought in $5.9 million, a record total until O’Rourke’s campaign announced raising $6.1 million in his first 24 hours in the race. The next-biggest launch in terms of campaign money was for Harris, who raised $1.5 million in her first 24 hours.

This new popularity scheme linked to first day fundraising is a twisted version of a hyped IPO rollout. It’s purposefully being gamed by a group of political players, but who? Sorta like how the managed grassroots versus astroturfed grift worked ten-fifteen years ago. And this new popularity model ? Where did it come from? Who started doing it first?

It’s very convenient timing for Biden, that’s for sure.

    Considering last week, when they said he had no infrastructure and no campaign money……one does wonder,

The girls will take down this boobs.

    You may be right, but the correct thing would be for the Ukraine scandal to get some attention, IMO, on the grand scale of things

      I see plenty of hits coming for Biden, if Obama has withheld his anointing from him, even at this early stage, it is due to Biden not being the choice of king Barry. He isn’t the Clinton’s choice either. Both parties believe they are the king makers of the party, with those two set against you the odds are not in your favor.

      The groping was the shot across the bow. The minor coverage so far of Ukraine was the second. Biden ignored it. Expect to see more coverage start up from this angle and other things to start being grumbled about.

      Biden is too stupid with his gaffes, he gives the opposition far too many opportunities to show that Biden has mental deficiencies. Gaffes in the CIC are dangerous, which is the stance of the NeverTrumpers with Trump. Trump still comes off looking far more savvy than Biden.

      The National Socialist Party want a woman, or a minority. If they can get a two for one shot, that is what they prefer. After all, historic worked once for them with the election of the first affirmative action president, why not again…

The check is for the male.

They can shower him with cash, or with hot water and Irish Spring soap, but they still won’t get the old-pol smell off.

Dems will be getting Joe barring something crazy…no other way about it with that total.

All of their grass roots BS will get tossed aside for the elite leftist choice. It’s no wonder the bottom 50% or more of the party are always whining about classism. It’s because they are pigeon-holed and stifled into these tiers within their own party of big government meddling and socialized strata. Talk about a group with Stockholm syndrome!

A great American zero. Pedo Joe!

Just saw where Beto only drew about 3 dozen at a rally in Vegas today.

he may not be the first to decide he needs to “spend more time with the family”, but I’d wager he won’t make it to the debates.

He’ll get out before he spends much more of that $80 million he has in the bank.

Or maybe the crazies are not trusted to take the reins of power? That, despite what the MSM would have you believe, the rank-and-file democrat doesn’t really want the SJW/unhinged wing in charge?

Sane people typically edge away from the insane, when detected.

Joe is the D’rats’ “Jeb” candidate. Dull, safe, no chance that he’ll try anything wacky, like nationalizing the oil industry, annexing the Sudetenland, or declaring the national language to be Esperanto or Swahili. The “big” money—from organizations which like “dull” and “safe” (i.e., “predictable”)—will flow to him like it’s spraying from a fire hose.

What I can’t un-see on Joe Biden’s logo is three red fingers reaching towards a boob. I noticed they quickly came out with another “JoE” logo that is not as bad as the three fingers reaching towards the D.

I also like one that mocks Obama’s “HOPE” campaign poster, but says GROPE. HAHA! I’d link to pictures of the above, but the internet is not making it easy for me to find.

And lastly, I’ve been saying for years that when Biden made noises about running against Hillary, I binged watched videos of him truly groping children that had since disappeared from the internet and replaced with ones that were just of him smelling hair, etc.

Well it appears that INFOWARS has some up now. Watch and throw up.

The guy has a real problem that he can’t control. He will NEVER get the nomination.

A fool and his money……

First in the game with $5.8m gets you the first big “front runner” headline. Three new candidates later, $6.3m makes you the dominant front runner. So the marginal cost for grabbing the “front runner” headline is about $100,000.

Meanwhile, Trump is out-raising all of them combined and he doesn’t even need the money. No Republican challenger has any hopes of raising anywhere near the amount of money it would take. How many billions have they lost already betting against him? So Dems are playing with chump change trying to sell their cancer while they cure is already here.
