The cost of a Joe Biden selfie is kinda ridiculous

178

There are campaigns that are built on building grassroots armies of supporters and donors, ones that allow any attendee to take a picture with the candidate. Then there’s the other kind. Here is Joe Biden, in a Bay Area swing:

they all d I find it abhorrent that so many who appear to be dems working to tear down each candidate.

Good choice of words. To much infighting. Just about anybody would beat trump. And that’s the whole point. We need to beat trump.
