You can't use leftover campaign contributions for personal spending. Against Federal law since 1989.

I heard a great interview with Pete Buttigieg a week or two ago. He seems to have some great ideas and given he's a mayor that runs a fairly large city, knows how to actually govern beyond simply introducing and pushing legislation.

He's very smart, articulate, a veteran, a gay man, progressive, and very accomplished via his own merit and effort. In other words, everything Donald Trump is not. A great candidate it seems to me and a serious threat to established Democrats from the Senate and House.....

The early primaries will shake out a number of the Dems' crowded field candidates. California has moved up its primary to March, and this seems like a benefit for Kamala Harris.

The name of the game is money and name recognition. Some of the candidates are going to be challenged in these areas. Running & putting an organization together isn't cheap.

A truly disturbing idea just occurred to me : What if the backlash produces a liberal version of Trump? Can you even picture whar a creature that would be? Man man oh man - we haven't hit bottom yet.

1st qrt fund raising. Required to report by 4/15, some reported early:

Buttigieg (still exploratory status): The 37 year-old mayor of South, Bend Indiana is gaining traction on the national stage, and raised $7 million in 2019's first quarter.

Harris: Raised a total of $12 million from 218,000 donors who gave an average of $55 since announcing her candidacy in January, her campaign said.

O'Rourke: Former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke announced raising $9.4 million in the first 18 days of his candidacy, an average of $522,000 per day. His campaign said the average donation size was $43, and 98% of contributions were under $200.

Sanders: Announced bringing in $18.2 million from 525,000 contributors, 99.5% of whom gave $100 or less, in the first six weeks of his campaign.

Yang: Entrepreneur and long-shot presidential candidate Andrew Yang reported raising $1.7 million from 80,000 donors who donated an average of just $17.92 in March and February alone, far outpacing the $659,000 he raised between October 2017 and December 2018

Curiously arrested for B&E and Drunk Driving, that will be fodder during any possible debate...

Maybe he and the "Groper" Joe Biden can team up?

Remember Martin, just because he never complains about Trump, and just because he said that nothing Trump says or does bothers him, it doesn’t mean Trump’s his guy. His guy is Gary Johnson. I guess he’s just a misunderstood guy.

Yes, the President is responsible for some pretty crass behavior, and pretty foul language.

You guys laugh at the President, I will chuckle at the list of contenders.

Tim Ryan serves the district north of me. He took over for the very popular Jim Trafficant, a name that I'm sure most following national politics will remember. Say what you will about Trafficant, but this area loved him and he did alot for it as well. Ryan doesn't enjoy the same widespread support across party lines and doesn't have a strong resume, but still has strongly held that seat since with no serious challengers. The base there is staunchly Democrat, in fact, Trumbull county (where Ryan was born) and within his current district voted for non-incumbent Republican Presidential candidate for the first time in like almost 90 years when Trump took the area in 2016.

Looking towards his prospects to win the nomination, he would be best served to moderate towards the middle and be the working man's candidate...the union blue collar people in this area and the ones that Ryan is going to say he represents do not care about gay rights, or protections for illegal immigrants, or green energy, or whatever the hot left issue of the day is. If he could be middle of the road on some of the more liberal issues and speak to the concerns of blue collar workers like Bernie and Trump did in 2016 I think he could do well.

Problem is that isn't who he is, he has picked up the flag and carried it for the party while he has tried to make a name for himself among the national base. All while he likely could never win state-wide office outside of his protected pocket of loyal Democrat voters.

Sherrod Brown on the other hand would've been an immensely better candidate out of Ohio than Ryan.

I think Ryan sees himself as filling a void among the current crop of candidates, I just don't know where his traction is really going to be. Based off of his career and accomplishments he has little to point to as "why him".

Nothing to do with Biden. Is Joe a little to "touchy/feely" or not?...Yes or No?

"Was 'Beto'... arrested for those two crimes?" Yes or No?

Harris/Buttigiege makes for a compelling Dem ticket in 2020...Covers close to every demographic in the ever expanding progressive wing of the Democratic party.

Of course it'll make every right wing conservative voter sh@t their pants and come to the polls, but what the hell....The Dems have the numbers in their favor if their base actually votes.

Remember total number of votes don't matter. Is that a ticket that the purple states (Midwest and Florida) would vote for? That's all that matters.

I do in fact think the purple states could vote for such a ticket. If the Dems show up and vote and enough independents swing in their favor. It's all about turnout and I think Harris and Butti are compelling enough to energize just enough independents to swing the purple states. If, if, the Dem base go to the polls....

I think Butti has proven exactly that with his election as mayor in a pretty conservative part of Indiana.

I think I get BIGV’s point. It took me a while because of how childish and demented it is, but I think I might get it: Because liberals preach tolerance of new ideas, they therefore should never criticize someone for their ideas. For if they do, they are nothing but hypocrites. Therefore, when liberals bash a guy who tries to hurt people everyday on Twitter, they are hypocrites for not tolerating a bully. In return, BIGV bullies and name-calls Biden, AOC, O’Rourke, migrants, and countless others in an attempt to equate the two behaviors. If liberals on this site don’t like his comments, then they should tolerate Trump’s daily vicious attacks on fellow Americans.

In BIGV’s mind, standing up to scum bag behavior is the same as name-calling Democrats because of their political views.

I can’t help but feel sorry for someone with such limited intelligence and awareness.

On the contrary, it matters a lot. The total number of votes in each state determine who carries said group and because of this system, all of the States have equal representation, just like they do in the Congress and the Senate. The total amount of votes in each county ordain who should be Sheriff and so on. The total number of votes in one city elects a Mayor and so on. Don't like how laws in your State apply to you?..Move. Taxes too high in California?...relocate. Think there should be one voice in Government?...Disagree, the Electoral College is absolutely necessary.

Turning to the thread title, this is one of many reasons I laugh at Beto O'Rourke as a viable candidate for POTUS. Arrested for DWI and Burglary (Not a good start, or it that unfair to bring up? lol) He believes the Electoral College was a "Bad Compromise". He opposes more Border security, is against Deportation, is for the Dream act and is against the separation of families and voted no on a Bill that would have eliminated "Sanctuary States" yet it is the Democrats whom claim that Border security is a "Problem".

No Electoral College? One vote for everyone!...

Even if they've entered Illegally.

"My Guy" lol...Repeatedly, I have stated on this board that I voted for Gary Johnson. Perhaps, to further clarify that point, I could start defending the positions Mr. Johnson and the Libertarian Party take whenever a Political hot button is pressed. No wait, I find it much more satirically entertaining to laugh at the views posted by the left/democrats who still can not deal with the everyday reality that they lost the WH, and continue to whine about it.
