RLAS19 Shame on them. Not promoting one candidate over another? Not the least bit true. Trump supports one of your positions and disregards the rest. You’re doing more damage than you can imagine. There are no catholic issues when people make the issues Roman Catholic are not a threat , damn liars Catholics really shouldn’t support the devil, yet they somehow are
Why would they do that? I’m Catholic. JoeBiden is Catholic. realDonaldTrump couldn’t find a Catholic Church if you paved the way to the front doors of one with naked porn stars & kfc So I'm confused...what is Biden? Sleepy Joe who hasn't ever achieved anything, or an evil superman who is an existential threat? Why don't the whack jobs make up their minds.
What's good for the goose.... $9.7 million is a fair bit of change for a 'not for profit' organization. This is a catholic extremist group btw This campaign is getting dirty now. I think there is a big hand behind this onslaught on Biden and his perceived value system. Good. Biden is no Catholic. If so, he wouldn't support evil liberal policies, abortion, gay marriage, murderers, corruption. He should be kicked out of the Church

Florida offers key test of Biden team’s pandemic campaign planThe campaign is betting that a targeted, largely virtual effort can turn out core voters while persuading swing groups in a crucial battleground state.

Trump Goes Unmentioned in Most TV Ads for House, Senate CampaignsAnalysis shows Democrats are sticking with a strategy of campaigning on policy promises rather than the president, and Republicans aren’t touting him in ads that could reach swing voters ToxicTrump what do you expect Name on promise that a Democrat politician, or any politician other than Pres. Trump who has kept their campaign promises. I'll be waiting... This is some master level gas-lighting right here. Democrats are running on 'OrangeManBad' and that is all.

Biden heads to Florida looking to gain ground with Latino votersFormer Vice President Joe Biden will campaign in Florida on Tuesday, hoping to court Latino voters seen as key to a victory in the state come November. Latinos in Florida can smell the socialism a mile away from the DNC. He's mumbling something about the Atlantic 'losers' story from a week ago. This isn't changing minds. Trump supporters don't believe it, and Biden supporters would believe it if CNN told them Trump ate kittens. Tell us what YOU are gonna do, Joe. He is reading a prompter. Can he just speak from his heart.
