I have given a contribution to a number of campaigns these past few months- mostly women - running for Congress and the Senate. So, I receive a lot of email in my inbox from those candidates and also text messages when I've given my phone number.
Pete Buttigieg is one of them. I have given him the most actually. Hundreds of dollars in the end. I just removed myself from his mailing list and I'm doing the same for the other candidates to whom I have contributed. Please scroll down to see the text messages I have received from Mayor Pete over the past two weeks. NOT ONE did anything other than ask me for money.
You can't JUST ask for money. And, that is what you are all doing. You cannot build anything JUST ASKING for my money. Tell me to do something. Tell me to post something about the Federal Judges that have been appointed, the most recent of which was not qualified and should not have been approved. Tell me to ask my present Congressman, or Chuck Schumer why he is not holding daily news conferences about those that are squeezing through the nomination process with nary a peep in the media. Tell me to read something that will enlighten me that you HAVEN'T written.
Tell me what the first thing you would do when you sat down at your desk in the Oval? Tell me what your response to Trump's latest ridiculous tweet is. Engage me. Entertain me. Education me. Don't just suck me dry.
Yes, I'm irritated.
Here are the texts from the last week from Pete...

Beating Donald Trump in 2020 will be the fight of our lives. This administration has made it clear that they will stop at nothing to hold onto power -- and they're significantly outraising us. Can you chip in tonight to help us hit our 2 million donation goal?
We started as an underdog campaign. Now we are staffed by over 500 people, funded by over 700,000 donors, and powered by millions of supporters. But what we raise in the next 3 days will determine what type of campaign we can run in 2020. Can you chip in today?
