Where are the Democratic tv ads?

This has been bugging me a lot lately.

I read and hear that Biden has an election bank in record numbers this year and his campaign is a well oiled machine. I read that Trump is begging for money and can’t compete because his election organization is basically nonexistent.

So how is it that every time I turn on the tv, there is a slew of negative Biden ads, yet nothing from the democrats to counter or present our side. The same with
mailing… daily I get glossy, expensive republican election junk that goes straight in the trash bin. Nothing from our team.

I admit that most of this is happening in the red states where I live or travel a great deal, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Florida. But shouldn’t they at least be exposed to a little bit of the truth?

I just don’t get it, and it bugs me even more when I get hounded to donate twenty times a day on email and text, yet don’t ever see what my donations were used for.

I live in the Florida Keys.

I understand why some of the Cuban people want to keep hating. No, don't tell me I don't, because I am first generation from Latvia, and my family suffered under communism. My grandparents lost their home, their son. I was born in a DP camp in Germany because the communists threw my family out of the country and took our homes and property. I KNOW!!!

But times come when you need to try another way.

If you think life was hell for my family (and it was) attempting to live on shit wages to survive, without the language, imagine what it would be for people of darker skin.
