Early voting for the 2020 presidential and congressional elections is set to begin within a few weeks and because of coronavirus, we haven’t heard much from either campaign.
President Trump ventured out earlier this summer to hold events around the country but was essentially shamed into ending them when the number of positive coronavirus cases (thanks to dramatically widening testing) began to rise.
As for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, he has kept a low profile.
Well, his handlers have kept him under wraps, let’s put it that way, because every time he opens his mouth, something inappropriate, confusing, or both, comes out.
There are a few debates scheduled (though Biden’s media lapdogs are begging him not to go!), but not nearly enough, the Trump campaign says, and they want more.
And they want them sooner.
The Washington Examiner has the details:
President Trump’s campaign manager called for more and earlier debates with Democratic challenger Joe Biden, arguing that early voting will lead voters in some states to cast their ballots before the first debate takes place.
“We want more debates,” said Bill Stepien, Trump’s newly promoted campaign chief, in a Fox & Friends interview on Monday. “We want debates starting sooner.” It was Stepien’s first interview since taking the job.
Sixteen states will have started voting by the time of the first debate on Sept. 29, Stepien said. “That's a concern to me.”
“We are already seeing the liberal Left, the liberal media, trying to create trapdoors for Joe Biden to escape his commitment and his obligation to debate Donald Trump on a debate stage in front of the American people,” he added. “We want more debates.” …
Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said earlier this year that more debates were needed because of how little voters had seen likely Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden during the campaign. “There will be debates, hopefully many of them, more of them than usual, because we haven’t had a normal election season so far,” she told Fox News in May.
We agree. We’ll bring the popcorn.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
