Elizabeth Warren attracts a truckload of money in her second quarter without holding even one campaign fundraiser.

I guess people are really hungry for actual solutions.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren raised $19.1 million for her 2020 presidential bid in the second quarter of the year, according to her campaign. The haul is more than triple the amount she raised in the first quarter and leaves her with nearly $20 million on hand.

Warren’s second quarter total trails only South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s $24.8 million and former Vice President Joe Biden’s $21.5 million among candidates who have released their fundraising numbers so far. Detailed reports for the quarter are due to the Federal Election Commission by July 15.

The impressive amount is something of a validation for Warren’s strategy of relying on grassroots online donations and not holding in-person, high-dollar fundraisers. Democratic strategists and other campaigns had questioned whether or not Warren could pay for her extensive campaign operation without setting aside time to collect maximum-donation checks. So far, she has more than 300 staffers, most of whom are working in the four early primary states.

“You’re making it possible to build a presidential campaign without catering to wealthy donors—with no closed-door fundraisers, no Super PACs, and no money from Washington lobbyists, corporate PACs, or, for that matter, PACs of any kind,” Roger Lau, Warren’s campaign manager, wrote in an email to supporters that will go out this afternoon.

Warren is now among the top three fundraisers, beating out even Bernie Sanders by a few hundred thousand, and since these are mopstly small-dollar donors she can rely on them month after month. 

Warren continues to impress with her ideas, her debating skills, and now her fundraising abilities. 

She is kind of the whole package.

    Speaking of fund raising.. I am sure those evangelicals will approve

    Trump’s Florida resort hosting golf tournament for unregistered charity with strippers as ‘caddy girls’

    …He also noted that there would not be any nudity at the resort and caddies will be wearing pink miniskirts and a “sexy white polo.” The group will then return to the cabaret for a “very tasteful” burlesque show that “could” include nudity, however.

    The proceeds are going to a basketball-themed children’s charity and the Trump Organization said that they didn’t approve any of the advertisements before they were published. The charity said that they serve about 40 young people, but there seems to be problems about the charity’s status.

    Franco Ripple, a spokesman for the state of Florida told The Post that the charity isn’t registered in the state.

    Carlos Alamilla, the charity’s director, said that he would not be bringing the charity’s beneficiaries to the fundraiser. ..

    There is nothing that I’d love more than to see a one-and-done trouncing of that lard butt by a woman next year.
    He woudn’t be able to handle it, and maybe land him in a mental institution for good .
    How’s that for a Christian attitude?

    the letter reads. “Yet, despite your organization’s claimed commitment to transparency, JCN continues to conceal the identity of its donors. As we understand it, these donors have contributed tens of millions of dollars used to fund political advertising campaigns in support of nominees like Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.”
    “In the letter, the Democrats ask for the names of every JCN donor who gave more than $10,000 and the total number of donors since 2017. They’re also seeking the number of small donations of less than $100 that the group has received”

    Meghan ‘daddy’s coattails’ McCain isn’t overly fond of intelligent women like Warren. Meghan and her type hate anyone who open them to new ways of seeing. Meghan has one food group – deep fried meat.

    challenged by a trio of other top-tier candidates – Democratic primary voters are now about as likely to say they’d think about voting for Harris as to say they’d consider picking Biden, that Economist/YouGov survey also found, and are likeliest of all to say they’d consider Warren.

    A liberal female Senator from Mass., who lied about her native heritage for her benefit at the outrage of the Cherokee Nation, who did chastise her for doing so, is not going to be your next President. Nuff said.

    Elizabeth Warren has as much baggage as Hillary we can’t go down this road again.

    Bernie looks sick. Is his spine made of already-licked Twizzlers?
    He really looks like he is 175 years old.

    Harris can be a chainsaw, which could be helpful. We’ve already done Warren when we did Hillary in ’16, and no one really wants that sequel, which would be like warm macaroni mayonnaise salad on soggy wonderbread. Mmmmmnmmmmnnmmmnnnmmnnnnmnnnnnnooooooooooo!!!!
