Former Vice President Joe Biden had roughly 400,000 more individual donors than President Donald Trump in the last three months, the latest evidence of Biden’s newfound financial strength, according to a New York Times analysis of Federal Election Commission data.

The estimated donor numbers offer another sign of the nation’s political divisions. From April through June, Biden had more donors than Trump in 26 states, including key battlegrounds like Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Trump led in 24, including critical states like Florida and Arizona.

Biden attracted more donors in urban areas and on the coasts, while Trump had the advantage in rural areas around the country.

The most recent fundraising quarter unfolded as Democratic donors turned their focus to the general election, pouring money into Biden’s campaign and significantly narrowing the cash lead Trump had built by courting donors for his reelection bid since taking office in 2017.

L.A. love coach Damona Hoffman tackles dating and relationship questions on her weekly podcast, “Dates & Mates.” She said she receives many topical, thought-provoking relationship questions, but none has ever struck a chord with listeners like this one:

Dear Damona: Am I racist if I don’t want to date outside my race?

While being #woke is currently trending on Twitter as I write this, for the last 15 years I’ve contemplated the relationship between race and romance and coached my clients to be “race-open” when they date, because it expands our view of the world and increases your odds of meeting someone special. This practice has been met with many objections along the way.

The first objection I hear when I suggest this: “But Damona, isn’t it my choice who I

‘Hated woman of color’ and ‘white Jewish guys’ in race for clerk

dhita yudha

Brenda Forman got one thing right. She married well, politically speaking.

When the former Brenda Dixon married Howard Forman, her predecessor as Broward’s elected court clerk, she took a name that was magic with county voters since the 1970s. If you had to choose one name that has been synonymous with Broward politics for more than a generation, that name is Forman. It’s easy to say, easy to remember, and sounds Jewish, when that mattered more than it does now.

A liberal Democrat with a big heart and a knack for remembering names, Howard Forman won countywide seven times, three times as county commissioner and four as clerk, once unopposed and all in high-turnout presidential years. He also served 12 years in the Florida Senate.

The consummate career politician, he was never grazed by scandal. It didn’t hurt that he shared a last name (no relation) with another Forman, the

Kanye West’s 2020 presidential campaign is thought to be over as quickly as it began.

Earlier this month, the rapper, 43, announced his intention to run against Donald Trump and Joe Biden in the US presidential elections in November.

However, less than two weeks after he confirmed his bid for the White House on Twitter using the hashtag #2020VISION, a member of West’s campaign team has claimed that the star has dropped out of the race.

“He’s out,” Steve Kramer, who was hired to help West get on the ballot in Florida and South Carolina, told New York Magazine’s The Intelligencer.

Kramer said he was in the process of getting “stuff cancelled” and later added: ““I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye.

“Everyone has their
