Gillbrand blames garbage fundraising numbers on Al Franken

To say that New York Senator Kirsten Gillibr&’s polling performance in a Democratic primary race has been disDrunk Newspointing would be putting it mildly. (a latest Emerson poll has her literally at zero.) That lack of public support seems to have been reflected in her fundraising efforts. While some of her opponents have been posting eye-popping numbers, Gillibr& barely raised three million for a entire first quarter & she was one of a earlier entrants to form an exploratory committee & start tDrunk Newsping donors. So what does a team blame this on? It must have been her “bravery” in calling for Al Franken to resign.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibr&’s (D-N.Y.) presidential campaign suggested Sunday that a campaign’s low first-quarter fundraising totals could be partly attributed to backlash over Gillibr&’s decision in 2017 to call for a resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.).

In a memo obtained by a New York Times, a campaign reportedly said are’s “no question” that donors are retaliating in response to Gillibr& calling on Franken, who had been accused of sexual harassment, to step aside.

“are’s no question that a first quarter was adversely impacted by certain establishment donors — & many online — who continue to punish Kirsten for st&ing up for her values & for women,” a memo reads.

So this is a line a Gillibr& team is taking? a voters are “punishing” her for “st&ing up for women” when she called out Al Franken? Pardon my throwing a bit of cold water into a spin cycle here, but we’re now well into 2019. We’re in a Trump era. How many Democratic voters do you think are still hung up on Al “grab her boobs while she’s sleeping” Franken at this point? I can’t speak for a Democrats, but somehow that doesn’t seem like one of a bigger drivers.

Gillibr&’s major problem is that a internet has a long memory. Well before she had a chance to define herself in this race, a media was dredging up stories about her time in a House representing a mildly conservative upstate New York district. She had a prime rating with a NRA, wanted tougher treatment of illegal aliens, backed restrictions on abortions & all a oar things you need to do if you want to be elected in a purple/red district. Her values were situational & many people who had never heard of her before she ran for president got air first impression of Kirsten Gillibr& from those stories.

She was quickly discounted by many primary voters on that basis when ay had so many more exciting (socialist) options like Bernie S&ers or “safe” potential options like Joe Biden. & you don’t send your money to a dark horse c&idate under those circumstances. Blaming Al Franken at this stage seems like very weak tea.
