Jaime Harrison raises 57 million, and Dems are ahead
Candidate for Senate in South Carolina, Jaime Harrison, raised a record amount of 57 million dollars from July through September. This is newsworthy, particularly since he is running against Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a response from the Democrats to the GOP forcing through the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice. Graham is the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. In general, the Democrats are ahead in fundraising, but as we know, money does not always equal winning.
I did the drawing above during my daily live broadcasts on Instagram TV, and HappsTV. I wanted to draw something about Jaime Harrison’s fundraising, but thought it should reflect the trend for the election in general. I gave Biden aviator glasses in hopes of distinguishing him, as he often wears them. I love drawing Kamala because she has so much energy! Trump has short pants, because he is a schoolyard bully. And Pence, well, flies seem to like him.
Below are some sketches I did beforehand, trying to narrow down the idea. I decided that donkeys and elephants as political symbols might be outdated.
And this is a sketch I did that made me feel this approach is the best version!
