Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) refused to talk to his campaign manager for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination, The Daily Beast reported Monday evening.

Tallahassee-based Republican operative Jacob Perry wrote an email to “potential campaign vendors and staffers” warning them of the development. The email was obtained by The Beast.

“As of this morning, it has been eight days and 23 unanswered phone calls since I last spoke with Joe,” Perry said in the email sent on August 16th, the day that the campaign had been scheduled to launch.

“Needless to say, it’s the first time in my entire career that I’ve been hired to run a campaign and then been completely ghosted by the candidate,” he explained.

“It’s obvious to me that the campaign plan that we have all worked hard on together in anticipation of a launch today isn’t going to happen, so I am officially releasing all of you from your obligations and agreements,” Perry announced.

Walsh launched his campaign one week later.

"Might I recommend Bernie Sanders: the climate candidate," responds Vermont senator's press secretary.

If you want a candidate committed to banning fracking in the United States immediately, find another candidate than Joe Biden.

That's the advice of Biden himself, given to an activist from the Sunrise Movement in a video posted online Thursday after the two discussed the former vice president's adviser Heather Zichal and Biden's plans for the future of fracking.

‘You’re a damn liar’: Joe Biden goes off on Iowa voter for attacking his son’s work in Ukraine

Published

on

As House Democrats move closer to indicting President Donald Trump on articles of impeachment, many Trump supporters continue to insist that Trump did nothing wrong when, on July 25, he tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Moreover, some impeachment critics still claim that an investigation of the Bidens’ activities in Ukraine is warranted. The Bidens’ connection to Ukraine was brought up this week by a man at a Joe Biden campaign event in Iowa — and the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware wasted no time calling him out.
