Tulsi Soldiers On, In Spite of Attacks
Well, the Democratic war on progressives was on full display this past weekend as Tulsi spoke at the California Democratic Convention on Saturday along with other Democratic luminaries and candidates. Tulsi's speech was messed with--of course--unlike every other person's speech.
There was a row of speakers in the front of the hall at the Moscone center, and one towards the back. During Tulsi's speech, the volume on the back speakers were somehow turned very low, and a large group of people started talking to one another loudly in the back to drown out Tulsi's ability to be heard to a large percentage of the delegates trying to hear her in the back half of the room.
The Democratic establishment has no ability to play fair. In other words, they continue to cheat.
Still, evidently, Tulsi's speech got the most enthusiasm, hoorays, and chants of support of any on that day (note that Bernie did not speak that day).
Tulsi is now up to 80,000 individual donors. Tulsi will be a participant in the first two debates, but for the third debate, which takes place in September, and for later debates the DNC has increased the bar: candidates will need 130,000 individual donors *and* (not *or*) will need to poll at 2% in at least 4 polls from their supported list. Otherwise, they will not be invited to participate.
This makes it pretty imperative that Tulsi "hit it out of the park" at the first two debates. That's really the only event that can bring her the needed attention, otherwise she will be seriously sidelined as far as events that can reach millions of people.
If you know people who have not donated to her yet, it might be worth asking them if they'd consider donating $1 to her campaign.
Tulsi has continuted to poll around 1% in most national polls.
And, that's the update for now . . .
