GARY JOHNSON ANNOUNCES PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN
(I used orange because yellow is basically invisible)

"We know that people want to be free of Government decisions. A lot of people didn't know that there were options outside of the two-party red-blue dynamics. One party will expand social liberty, by reducing over policing and tax you through the roof. Meanwhile the other will lower your taxes, give you more say in your child's schooling, or gun rights. For years this has been the choice voters have made. Trading freedom in one instance for another. But now we are beginning to see people understand that the choice is not so binary. Representative Amash has shown that within the parties, there exists a wish for politicians to speak to these desires for more freedom and personal choice. We're here to carry on that message. Under a Johnson administration, we would drastically reduce the size of the government. Let's do this, America!

Sherrod Brown returned to Iowa, where his campaign really began with his Iowa caucus victory, where he officially launched his general election campaign with a Des Moines rally on Tuesday, July 28th, 2020. In the following days of his convention victory, Brown hoped to unite the party while the Republicans stayed divided; Kerry and his major surrogates stumped across major swing states to show support for the Ohio Senator as the nominee. In a bid to start the campaign with a bang, the Brown campaign announced a money bomb general election launch set for July 29th, hoping to break records and show strong grassroots support to open a tough election fight.

Quote
Major Excerpt

"We convene together again in a state that built the stepping stones to an unlikely journey and an unlikely message that spread across Iowa and so many other states. More than a year ago, we arrived here in Iowa with a clear message: one that wasn't about me or any of the other candidates. This campaign was about the millions of working families who suffer from the rising cost of medical bills, childcare, and life-saving prescription drugs.It was about the factory workers who suffer from lost wages and unfair competition overseas. It was about grocery workers who work 40 hours a week but not enough to lift them above poverty, and the coal miner who worked his entire life to earn their pension and deserve to retire with dignity and security. It was about rebuilding America for all of us.

So many of you ignored polls, percentages, and pundits to bring us where we are today. That message was what brought so many of you to door-knocking, phone-banking, caucus centers, town halls, meet & greets, and rallies. You stood up and because of that a few hundred stood up, then a few thousand stood up, then a few million stood up. And even after our win here in Iowa was written off as a fluke, tonight, with the help of so many from St. Louis to New York City to Philadelphia, I stand here tonight as your nominee for President of the United States.

The road to here has been long and bumpy. It's been a tough campaign. John Kerry and Alex Sink have clearly put up strong, formidable campaigns that I have been honored to compete against. Some may see the millions upon millions of votes for all of the candidates as proof for division and evidence that our party is divided, but I see it as proof that we have never been more energized and united in our desire to take the White House back and build a country for the middle class. Because while the long, hard-fought primary is over, the hardest, most important party of our journey lies in the months to come. Our journey that has brung together democrats, republicans, and independents to unleash an economy that no longer only works for the rich but for working Americans that built this country.

President Romneyís economics have clearly led the path to slower economic growth, stagnant wages, and higher income inequality; we canít afford four more years of that. We need a tax code that puts less burden on the middle class and rises household incomes and we need to hold companies accountable for predatory policies that hurt everyday Americans. Iowa, that is the message you sent to the nation a mere 6 months ago; in 4 months, the people of Iowa will once again send that message, itís time to rebuild America and the working class that built it in the first place!

In a month, a Republican will emerge as the nominee, but what we know is that whoever emerges will be representing the same politics and the same policies of the Romney administration. The same policies that have stagnated paychecks and lowered real median household incomes over the past 8 years. The crisis of our time and the crisis we must confront in this election is the reality that for so many working Americans, they are not able to get by. The solution is not tax cut after tax cut skewed towards wealthy Americans. Thatís not pragmatism and solutions, thatís pandering to the last eight years of economic policies that have driven us backwards. Itís exploding our deficit and shifting the burden on the middle class. Thatís not fighting for main street, thatís fighting for Wall Street. And I think Iowa has had enough of those policies!

So many of you have knocked on doors and phone-banked, youíve met strangers and reached into paychecks, to make this movement and message possible. Tonight, and across America, we will make the case for economic security. We will make the case for new solutions and different ideas; actual pragmatism and actual solutions, not just tax cut on tax cut for wealthy Americans. When we fight for workers, we fight for all people, whether they punch a clock or swipe a badge, earn a salary or make tips. Whether they are raising children or caring for an aging parent. Together, we will take that message across America. It wonít be easy, but no major chapter in American history has. And together, we will unfold that next chapter in American history.Ē

POLITICO: Brown-Sink "Moneybomb" Shatters Records

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown has reason to be happy right now: one day after launching his general election campaign with running mate Florida Governor Alex Sink at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, a national 'moneybomb' announced by the Senator Brown a few days prior to thrust the campaign into the general election raised roughly $53 million in fresh donations, shattering the previous record at $9 million set by Sherrod Brown in the primary campaign, and with roughly 1,000,000 individual donors. This number is by-far-and-away the most campaign donations raised in one day by any presidential candidate in American history, and speaks volumes to the level of how much sheer grassroots support and enthusiasm the ticket has generated; it proves where Brown's demographic strength really is, the vast working poor and working middle class that elected Obama in 2008 and Romney in 2012 + 2016. "We spent weeks building anticipation and preparing for this campaign launch. Even our most optimistic staff and advisers were surprised by just how staggering this cash flow is," said Joe Trippi, major Brown campaign strategist. "Everything just fell in place, it seems."

This news is a major boost to Brown's national reputation and really sets off his general election campaign launch with a bang. "Senator Brown is clearly running his campaign with the support of a large, enthusiastic crowd of working people and democrats nationwide," said Senator Tammy Baldwin, "and I think this historic fundraiser is ample evidence of that. This is unprecedented, really, the amount of support he's managed to garner." The numbers released confirm that Brown's grassroots support can monetarily support his campaign without the backing of corporate PAC money, and will prove to be a major advantage over whoever the GOP nominee is. Brown's record-shattering money-bomb is sure to give a significant monetary boost to his opening campaign as he makes the case for his candidacy nationwide.

*Video from Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker*

Hello Massachusettsans and hello my fellow Americans. As you may remember, shortly after ending my presidential campaign, I endorsed my colleague Governor Phil Scott. A lot has changed since that time, and I've been re-examining the options for President. I've recently talked to Governor Alex Sink, and Senator Brown's and her ticket is kind of appealing to me. So I'm temporarily withdrawing my support for the Scott/Rubio ticket, this isn't permanent and I'll have an endorsement soon.

Thank you for your time, and make sure you vote no matter who it is.
What
This makes no sense
I'm
Gonna say this is out of line
I've used baker this whole time

Governor Sink Speaks at Florida Event

Tampa, Florida
Sherrod and I really know what's going on here. We know that America isn't what it should be. We're going to expose the GOP and President Romney and their War of Women, their War on Abortion, their War on the LGBT, their War on Healthcare, and their War on America. We're the Cavalry in this War, and we're going to fight all the way to the White House, with your support.

Senator Brown and I believe in a Progressive Idea. That Progressive Idea is America. We're going to make America a country of Progress, but that comes with a few simple ideas. Medicare for All, Tuition Free College, Criminal Justice Reform, and a Green America. This is what we can achieve if we work together. If we elect the Brown/Sink ticket in November, we are going to finally put Americans First.

Take this from me tonight, take this as the most important thing I've said: Greatness is Possible, Greatness is the Future. The Future will be the Brightest Ever Seen Before, but only with the Best Leadership. Let's get this Revolution into the White House, and make some real damn change.

BREAKING NEWS
October 2, 2020


Blitzer: I'm Wolf Blitzer, and here at CNN, we have breaking news.



King: I'm John King, and that's right, Wolf. The CPD, or Commission on Presidential Debates, to use layman's terms, has changed its rules stating that, in order to qualify for the debate stage, a candidate needs only to reach 5% in three independent polls in the month prior to the debate.

Blitzer: This a serious departure from the previous rules, which required candidates to obtain 15% support in order to qualify. John, why do you think they're changing the rules all of a sudden?

King: We can't say for certain, Wolf, but there is one major implication of this: Rob Manfred has now qualified for the presidential debates over the next few weeks, which many would agree is a real chance for him to launch his campaign into major status within this race.

Blitzer: Indeed it is, John, and so, very soon, we will see whether or not he takes advantage of it. Until then, I'm Wolf Blitzer.

King: And I'm John King.

Both: And thanks for tuning in.

Sherrod Brown 2020
Rebuild America.

General Ad #2: Hands.


Quote
- Ad opens with scenes of various clips of worker's hands -

"These are the hands that built America; the story of the American dream. These are the hands of hard-working Americans who survived through great depressions and recessions, failing incomes for the middle class, foreclosure and debt, wall street greed and high prescription drug costs. They didn't get a corporate subsidy or a bailout; They worked extra shifts, took second jobs, postponed home repairs, figured out how to make it work while Washington worked against them."

- Scene cuts to Sherrod Brown & Alex Sink on the campaign trail -

"Sherrod Brown & Alex Sink believe the hands of working families can rebuild America."

- Scene cuts back to clips of worker's hands -

"This election, let's vote for leaders who will fight back in Washington against Wall Street greed and corporate influence to bring back the dignity in the work of these hands, and once again, make America number one in the world in economic prosperity for it's middle class."

- Scene cuts to Sherrod Brown logo & legal information -

VO: "I'm Sherrod Brown & I approve this message"

Sherrod Brown 2020
Rebuild America.

General Ad #3: Fresh Vision.

Narrated by narrator quoting Tax Policy Center's endorsement of Brown's tax plan


Quote
"It's clear that Sherrod Brown's tax proposal represents the best solution to substantially jolt the economy on the brink of an economic recession and provide a major degree of economic security for working families." With those words, the non-partisan Tax Policy Center endorsed Sherrod Brown's tax plan. "No other candidate offers the tax proposal that provides different solutions to increase failing incomes of middle class families. Senator Brown offers an innovative and different vision to robustly grow the economy with tax cuts that work for working families."


Quote
The Tax Policy Center rejects Phil Scott's plan. "Phil Scott's plan doubles down on the same policies that have substantially increased the deficit, massively cut taxes for the wealthy, and led us to slow growth. It makes you wonder if he's really the maverick he claims he is."


Quote
"Sherrod Brown's plan totally reforms the tax code to put middle income people first. His plan rewards employers who pay good wages and benefits & punishes those who offshore and cut paychecks, with substantial tax cuts for the middle class, while raising taxes on the wealthy to reduce the deficit and create a family friendly economy. His plan would quickly bring new certainty to the American economy and significantly increase paychecks, while ensuring Wall Street is paying their fair share. Sherrod Brown offers fresh economic vision, and his plan has our back. "

What Manfred did part 1

Manfred campaigned in the southeast on putting Amercia first in trade. He campaigned on getting out of the TPP while at the same time not resorting to use tariffs and talked about his plan to reform NAFTA and make it fairer for Americans.

He also hosted Saturday Night Live in which he show the comedic part of himself as he did skits making fun of himself and did a little stand up in his opening monologue.
