Today we’re taking a spin around the always fascinating Federal Election Commission site. Elections are expensive, national elections even more so. By necessity, money is the engine that drives the political train. Few of the Democrat/Socialist pack are household names, but they all consider themselves capable of leading the free world.
Like indistinguishable dervishes, they whirl in and out of contention. On Tuesday California Rep. Eric Swalwell exited without a ripple, while leftist billionaire Tom Steyer, who vowed he would not run, entered the race — leaving Democrats who relied on his $120 million donations during the midterm elections, empty-handed. Steyer’s vacuous heartthrob issue is impeaching President Trump. The recent exit of Mike Gravel, an 89-year-old former Alaska senator speaks for itself.
These are the current Dem candidates:
Mayor Bill de Blasio
Gov. Steve Bullock
Sen. Michael Bennet
Obama’s VP Joe Biden
Mayor Pete Buttigieg
Rep. Seth Moulton
Rep. Tim Ryan
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
Fmr Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke
Fmr Gov. John Hickenlooper
Gov. Jay Inslee
Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self declared Socialist.
Hedge fund billionaire Tom Steyer
Sen. Amy Klobuchar
Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas ”Warren
Sen. Cory “I am Spartacus” Booker
Sen. Kamala Harris
Fmr Mayor Julian Castro
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
Fmr Rep. John Delaney
Mayor Wayne Messam
Fmr Rep. Joe Sestak
New Ager Marianne Williamson
Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang
Republicans who watched the recent Democrat debates, feel even more secure with incumbent President Donald Trump in the White House, fulfilling the promises he made as a candidate.
The DNC, well aware of the debate debacle, is scheduling more, two in the second week of September, but with more restrictions on who can participate. Count on open borders and (taxpayer funded) giveaways to dominate as ABC News partners with Univision, the Spanish language broadcast network.
