Yeah, according to me :roll:

Congratulations on your Government Handout. What do think of the fact he feels he even has to send bribes to voters who make up his base?

Why do I doubt this?

But anyway.... you could take the real hero step and donate it to the medical supplies so desperately needed.

It makes me feel good to give donations where I get a thank you.
Gave $2,500.00 to a good support computer forum.
Gave GF 20 N95 masks I bought last January, she is a HCW.
Another $2,000. to a Ocean preservation nonprofit group.
It feels good to donate to causes I believe in.

Special election today in California 25th District. Katie Hill's old seat. I think this seat is open again in November and the same two will run. :eh?:

Yeah, it's to finish the term. Awful short time to be in an elected position.

Huge win for Garcia. Trump lost this district by 6% in 2016 and Garcia won by 12% yesterday. The same two will run again in November.

Finally flipping that district and having the Rep. get into a bunch of personal stuff didn't help.

True. Prior to 2018, it had been a GOP seat for some time.

Reuters is reporting that Michael Bloomberg is planning to spend $250 million in support of Biden.

Oops. Senior moment.

I corrected it.

Trump claims to be worth billions. Should be no problem for him to match that.

Remember when he said he would not take contributions?

The first of many lies that his followers continue to ignore and/or believe.

Don't think to $$$ go to Trump personally, it goes to his campaign & the RNC where it spent on campaign stuff.
I remember he spent his own $$$ during the 2016 election, do you think crooked Hillary did that... NO

Do yachts and ferraris and oceanfront condos count as "campaign stuff?" Do you think Biden's guy pulls in that much dinero?

Hillary never claimed to be a billionaire that could self fund.

Cannot wait for the Bloomberg effect.

The WaPo is reporting A federal judge has gutted a Florida state law requiring felons to pay all court fines and fees before they can register to vote, clearing the way for 1.5 millions of Floridians to register in time for the November presidential election.

Italicized words are my addition.
Republican lawmakers and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) pushed the measure after Florida voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment in 2018 to expand voting rights to felons who have completed “all terms of their sentence including probation and parole.”
U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle agreed (with the critics), likening the restrictive legislation to a tax and concluding that the state had not created a system that would allow felons to identify their financial obligations.
This could take FL out of the Swing state category into a Blue state.

Yet another example of the GOP doing whatever they can to suppress the vote and thwart democracy.
