Skip to comments.Report: Joe Bidenís Advisers Scrap Campaign Launch Video at Last Minute
Posted on 04/24/2019 8:34:47 AM PDT by Red Badger
Tensions among former Vice President Joe Bidens advisers are rising ahead of the Thursday launch of his 2020 presidential bid, according to a new report, with a last-minute replacement of his announcement video and major worries about his fundraising needs.
The New York Times reports Biden will enter the crowded Democratic field with zero campaign dollars and will need to raise at least $100,000 per day until Christmas if he wants to match the amount of cash that rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had in the bank on April 1st. Members of Team Biden are said to be concerned that the 76-year-old may not be able to raise the type of money Sanders and former Rep. Beto ORourke (D-TX) did in the first days of their campaigns. Each candidate took in roughly $6 million within the first 24 hours.
I dont think the challenge is underestimated by the Biden team, Rufus Gifford, President Barack Obamas 2012 campaign finance director, told the Times. This is going to be tough. This is going to be a heavy lift, Gifford added. The Obama people are not a given, and theyre going to have to work for them just like everyone has to work for them.
The Times reports that fundraising isnt the only matter advisors are worried about. At the last minute, his camp has reportedly scrapped and is scrambling to replace the video announcing his candidacy.

Is this a case of confusion or is there some party move to compromise his campaign? Biden has been in politics long enough to be past these rooky moves and embarrassments.
lol...It was most likely a hands on production.
No money and campaign “workers” are not likely attracted to go work for the creep.
Heh, another accuser by Monday is my prediction if he does announce...
They’re using the $ as an excuse for being too chicken to tell him the truth, his sex abuse antics will force him to quit in disgrace if he does. He can no more control his instinct that he should run for president than his rushin’ hands and roamin’ fingers.
Releasing it on “Hump Day” was just a bad optic for him
Slow Joe is not in charge of his own Campaign?
Leave, Joe. Leave quietly, or make a fuss, it does not matter.
Enjoy your golden years, and maybe the opportunities to grope and fondle young girls will still be present from time to time.
Must have been reading FR. A taped video announcement in his living room is boring.
Someone likely decided that it was Meme-ready.
There is an entire army of autists out there, just waiting for Biden to Declare. Should be fun!
Sounds like Obama doesn’t want Biden to run and won’t give the green light to support him. What disloyalty from the kenyan.
Are you kidding? The king of gaffs?
They probably noticed 5 or 6 more groping scenes visible in the wider scope shots showing his supposed inspiring greatness through the years.
As proudly watching Obama but with a hand under a girl’s top. Had to blur out so many that the whole ad was smeared up.
“Just show the remaining parts.”
“A twelve second ad?”
Can’t Biden get his son to lend him the money?
After what President Trump did to the last video he released Im surprised they even considered this.
Slimeball. Too bad she didn’t turn around and kick him in the nuts.
I cannot imagine that he would undertake running for POTUS without the support and insistence of the 0bama people. They see Biden as their only chance to get 0bama back into favor, for the history books.
But if they can’t even get his announcement video right (????? how about just make a speech, Joe?), and have ZERO funds to start with... it is going to be quite the uphill climb for him - not even considering that he’s nutty and perverted.
I’m almost feeling sorry for this flawed human being.
It would be best for him and the country if he does NOT enter the fray.
If he does enter, then I would NOT feel sorry for him anymore.
The Obama people are not a given, and theyre going to have to work for them just like everyone has to work for them.
He’s their best shot at protecting obummer’s legacy. None of the other candidates have the connections Biden has. This is Kabuki.
