Tulsi Torches Kamala and Other Updates
Well, a bit unexpectedly, Tulsi was the one who brought up Kamala's abysmal record as California's Attorney General tonight. Kamala just sputtered a non-answer in return:
Still, Tulsi was mostly sidelined in the debate (again) and got only 7 minutes of speaking time, versus Biden's 20 minutes and Kamala's 18 minutes.
However, according to Google Trends and ABC News, Tulsi was the most searched for candidate in *every single state* tonight.
Also, earlier today Tulsi reached her 110,000 unique donor goal, and is now at 113,600 according to her website, which keeps her more than on track to reach the 130,000 needed by Aug. 28 to participate in the Sept. and Oct. debates.
Let's see if this can push her up in some needed polls!
Edit to add: here is a visualization of candidate searches on Google over time during and after the debate. Tulsi is by far the one most at the top, especially at the very end and after the debate.
