hmmm.... you're getting Democrat campaign contribution emails?
Yep, I get NDRC email I get RNC I get Libertarian and last election cycle I got Green Party emails. I like to see what all of them are worried about and it’s my experience that this is the best way. Plus I don’t have to interact with anyone or read a bunch of nonsensical comments.

Earlier this year I got one that said, IF, you have a friend who is a Republican that when you go out you should outnumber them and try to bring up, I don’t remember it all but it was a list of ‘social injustices’ you know the elderly, children, poor blah blah blah, and the kicker was when they raise an objection you need to shame them. I laughed because if emotion is all you got, you’ve already lost. Right now the big issue on the democrats side is redistricting oh and both republicans and democrats claim they are behind the other in fund raising. I think the Pacs are really eating into the party finances and that’s not necessarily bad, if you get a non-mainstream candidate aae Johnson, who has a decent size pac behind him, it levels the field quite a bit.

the republican had no chance, there are several prominent republicans in NM now evidently suggesting the republican drop out if Johnson runs. I got this from a Libertarian newsletter I subscribe to that highlights all Libertarian candidates.

I should probably add, the dnc believes me to be a 91 year old Native American woman all you have to do is provide a valid email everything else is up to you. I would love to see the look in their eyes when they see how I reply to their surveys. :whistle:

And now you are banned from office with your dumb mistake also.

He did not say "Where is Aleppo?" He said, "What is Aleppo?" How could we have a president that doesn't know the difference between the commonly used adverbs where and what?;)

They were not talking about Syria at all. The reporter says out of the blue with no lead-in, "What would you do about Aleppo?" He thought she said an acronym the way she said it. A poorly worded question.... she should have said "Crisis in Aleppo" or similar. Honest mistake. And with that, he is done. Didn't matter, he acted somewhat goofy in other ways that would have stopped him. But, as KSU pointed out above, a very similar mistake to what other money-backed major party candidates have made. And it was nothing compared to the errors that our current president has made and have been excused.

Gary polling at twice the percentage of the GOP candidate but still trails Democrat incumbent.

https://reason.com/blog/2018/08/20/shock-poll-gary-johnson-at-21-in-senate
This isn’t unlike his runs for governor, except for how late he is to the race, he’ll end up with +40% of the r vote, 70% of the ua vote, to win he has to get roughly 30% + of the d vote, that’s how overwhelmingly d NM is. He’s on track but there’s a misconception by republicans that he’s going to be easier to work with. If anything, assuming he wins and the remainder of the seats stay in hand, it’s more likely that he’s less of a Libertarian Republican and more of a staunch independent simply because based on the makeup, whoever has a slight majority will HAVE to trade with him.
