Skip to comments.California's big donors are giving the edge to Buttigieg

California always loves the next new thing. And this summers West Coast sensation isnt a breakout star from a surprise hit film, or the latest Apple gadget you didnt know you needed.]
Its Pete Buttigieg. At least when it comes to political donors.
This is an unexpected situation. Major Democratic funders out here are concentrated in two areas: Big Tech up north, Big Entertainment in the south. True to their business models, Hollywood usually leads with its heart while Silicon Valley billionaires drill down on numbers and probabilities. Those separate calculations dont often add up to the same candidate. But this year, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., is making friends all over the state.
Also unusual: One of the other leading Democratic presidential contenders, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), is a favorite daughter who should be far out ahead in contribution totals. Leading California donors have strongly supported her previous successful campaigns for state attorney general and the U.S. Senate. As a detail-driven prosecutor who also is an Asian-African-American woman, she checks the boxes for both head and heart, both Silicon Valley and the big studio boardrooms.

Figures ....so many b f’ers out there
Hopefully enough sanity remains in this country to prevent a fudge packer from becoming POTUS.
Flyover country will NEVER vote for this guy, and evangelicals FORGET IT!!! The ONLY damn people who would vote for this are on the 2 coasts!!! The black vote forget that too, well maybe Smollet!!!
Queer is the new black.
Yeah they’re giving more than the “edge”.
They’re giving him the whole kit and caboodle :)
I think we are looking at two scenarios. Harris/Buttgag vs Squawk/Castro. There will be a woman at the top of the ticket. Question is, which one?
That’s why we need to abolish the Electoral College, whether by a Constitutional Amendment or the NationalPopular Vote Initiative.
Many /S /S /S here
Pete Butthead - The Failed Mayor of South Bend, Indiana. You can be sure that zero % of his California donors know what a crap job Butthead did as Mayor of South Bend.
How can a state that allows people to poop on the sidewalk field a legitimate presidential candidate? They can’t. They are excited about their little faggot or perhaps their “woman of color” senator, but not for their political views, but rather for their personal identity. We’re tired of your trendy musings. Cali has jumped the shark.
Buttigieg will sink their hopes like an iceberg in the dark. But theyll even more win New York City and California. Go Mayor Pete!
Squak/Castro is a Smart call.
Because so many people want to be lectured to about God by a homosexual.
It seems Gray Beaver doesn’t sit so well with the West Coast “elite” who clearly prefer a more, uh, “ambidextrous” candidate to assuage their white guilt.
California supports the faggie candidate. Paging Captain Obvious.
Good! Let them waste their money on that F@ggot. The people of the United States will not have a homosexual butt pirate as their President. Only a fool would back a queer for President.
