Spartacus underwhelms 1st Q fundraising

Remind me again, what is the rationale behind Cory Booker’s candidacy? What “lane” does he occupy on the road to the Democratic nomination?

The 1st Quarter fundraising derby is nearing an end.

Cory Booker, aka Spartacus, just released his numbers, and they underwhelmed, as reported at NJ.com:

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s presidential campaign released its first fundraising figures, saying its $5 million in donations exceeded its goal. But Booker trailed several rivals for the Democratic nomination.

Booker, D-N.J., announced the figures in an email to supporters in advance of the April 15 deadline for reporting fundraising figures to the Federal Election Commission.

“This movement is strong, and getting stronger with new folks involved every day,” Booker wrote. “What we’re doing with these resources matters — we’ve invested heavily in building our organizing team, especially in early states. In a crowded field like this, a strong ground game matters so much.”

He said the campaign would report having more than $6.1 million in the bank entering April. He can transfer the $4 million sitting in his Senate campaign account to his presidential committee.

Booker’s fundraising totals trailed the amounts reported by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont ($18 million), U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California ($12 million), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas ($9.1 million) and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg ($7 million).

Put aside money.

Why is Cory Booker running for president? What it the rationale of his campaign?

To use a favorite phrase from 2016, what “lane” does he occupy on the way to the presidential nomination?

Comments

Compare the malignant idiots of the left and their useful idiots with a the wisdom of an earlier generation:

“General Omar Bradley stated in an Armistice Day speech, Nov. 10, 1948 (published in “Omar Bradley’s Collected Writings,” Volume 1, 1967): “To ignore the danger of aggression is simply to invite it. … We shall doom our children to a struggle that may take their lives. … We know that unless free peoples stand boldly and united against the forces of aggression, they may fall wretchedly, one by one, into the web of oppression.”

“General Omar Bradley stated: “We have men of science, too few men of God. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. … If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.”

“In contrast to the totalitarian dictators he fought against, General Omar Bradley stated in his Armistice Day address, Nov. 10, 1948: “In the United States it is the people who are sovereign. … The government is theirs – to speak their voice and to voice their will.”

We’re in very, very bad shape as a nation. It’d be amazing if we last as one.

The left lane.

He occupies the Woke Joke lane.

What is Booker’s rationale for running for President?

First President who, as an adult, has an imaginary friend? If he wasn’t black, he’d be just a cookie-cutter Democrat Senator running for President simply because he sees one when he looks in the mirror.

In most cycles, there is always one, or a few, candidates who drop out after poor fundraising numbers before a single vote is cast, let alone a debate. Which candidate will that be? I’m looking at you, Booker.

… the farticus lane… along with rachel madcow… both of their “gas” combined will take down aoc’s cow phart strategy

Not sure if anyone realizes this. It really does not matter if they win, the money raised is just free money for them to spend how ever they want after the election. They don’t have to give it back, so in effect, it is just a pay day for what ever they collect. In some ways it it bribe money.

    Example:

    Permissible Uses

    The contributions can be used in the following ways:

    Donations to charities, as long as the candidate doesn’t receive compensation from the organizations and the donation is not used by the charity to benefit the candidate. Like the Clinton Foundation!

    A donation of a maximum of $2000 to another presidential candidate.

    Unlimited transfers to a local, state or national political party committee.

    Donations to state and local candidates or transfer to a future election campaign committee of the same candidate (Bernie Sanders transferred $1.5 million collected from his Senate campaign committee to his presidential committee).

Black, bald,unaccomplished, legally ignorant, gay, with imaginary friends and thinking yourself named Spartacus in the lead of a historical, but failed revolution, may not be great credentials. Except in the Democratic Party.

the fiercely heterosexual Cory Booker, as the AoSHQ Style Guide calls him…

    “With my Good Friend™ Rosario Dawson, with whom I have a *wink* authentic fierce relationship, which I can’t describe further to protect our privacy”

stop calling him SPARTACUS instead call him “FARTACUS” because he wants to plug up every cows butt to stop them from emitting gas. i’ll bet he emits more gas than any other member of congress they should plug up both his holes.

He occupies the “anyone but a straight, white, freedom-loving American male” lane. At least put up some good candidates Americans who offer more than how ugly and racist American voters are. Hate and ignorance do not make for a good platform.

He is probably just getting his funding from T-Bone.

He really would fit in well with Hollywood. He has plenty of acting credentials, he could be the next Marty Feldman. He also is of the correct National Socialist Party, so he won’t have to worry about gigs.

The Dims have gone so far left that Spartacus just doesn’t check enough boxes on the intersectionality matrix any more. He’s going to have to come out as gay and/or trans if he has any hopes of winning.

Barack Hussein Obama opened the floodgates for every lying, narcissistic, unaccomplished, delusional, treasonous, intersectional fool to think he/she/it is presidential material.

Booker’s just another face in the clown car, as all 18+ of them have nothing credible to offer.

What is the reason for Cory Booker’s candidacy? Really?

Look, this is like playing the lottery. Besides winning the big prize, there are several lesser prizes available. But, in order to win ANY of them, you have to enter the lottery. Cory Booker wants to advance himself politically. Being a candidate for President, even an unsuccessful one, will assist with that. At the very least, it should cement his control of his current seat in Congress. It will open up avenues to greater power and wealth, if he has even a reasonable showing. And, he might, if he is very lucky, win the nomination and possibly the Presidency. Then there is the narcissist factor. It is the ultimate political “look at me” moment.

The purpose of running for President is to benefit Cory Booker, and ONLY Cory Booker.

The dog paddle lane.

Not sure the democrats clown car lane is driving on a real straight road.
