Superhero stories are big business in the United States.
That is, unless you’re the one who is running for president.
In 2016, the American public gave Donald Trump’s presidential campaign $11.5 million, according to the Federal Election Commission.
In the same year, Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid netted more than $12 million, the FEC reported.
It’s worth noting that, in 2016, Donald Trump won just over half of all votes cast in the U.S. According to a report from the National Journal, a national news publication, “over 1 million Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election, or about 18 percent of the nation’s population.
About two-thirds of the 1 million people who voted in 2016 were white, and a quarter were male, a demographic that tends to lean Democratic.”
In the case of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate, she garnered an average of 3.7 million votes in the presidential election.
By contrast, Donald J. Trump, the Republican nominee, won an average 7.6 million votes, or 16 percent of all the votes cast.
In the 2020 midterm elections, Democratic lawmakers were able to secure a majority of seats in Congress in the House of Representatives, but the Democrats lost control of the Senate.
They held 52 seats in the Senate, but only a minority of those seats were held by Republicans.
In a special election to replace the retiring Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand became the first woman to lead the Senate since the death of former Democratic President Jimmy Carter in 1977.
Gillibrand, who won a landslide victory over Republican incumbent Bob Casey, was a progressive champion for gun control.
Gillibrad is a gun control advocate and, in fact, voted against the Brady Bill, a 1986 federal law aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous people.
Her vote against the bill is widely considered a sign that she supports gun control in general.
In a video released on her campaign website, Gillibrands campaign calls the Brady bill a “victimless crime bill,” and argues that “gun control is the best way to keep our country safe.”
In 2018, Gillbrands husband, former President Bill Clinton, announced that he would run for president again.
He was reelected in 2020, defeating Democratic incumbent Sen. Mazie Hirono.
Clinton’s presidential victory was not without its problems.
According, the election was marred by a series of cyberattacks that resulted in a number of data breaches.
Clinton’s team blamed the cyberattacks on the Russian government, and, despite a number, of reports that Russia interfered in the election to help Trump.
A month after the election, the FBI concluded that the Russian interference was part of a broader effort to interfere with the U in the hopes of electing Trump.
In 2017, Gillibs husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
In 2018, she had another bout of Parkinson’s and a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, a progressive disease that is typically associated with the elderly.
According a recent New York Times article, “She has had to contend with multiple medical challenges, including a history of heart valve issues, diabetes, depression and a condition known as neurofibromatosis, which can lead to fatigue and difficulty walking.
Gillib’s husband also suffers from multiple sclerosis, a disease that causes progressive nerve damage.”
According to The Times, Clinton “has said she is committed to treating her Parkinson’s condition as a public health priority.
The former president is also fighting for a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package to rebuild the country’s roads and bridges, and has proposed raising the retirement age for Social Security and Medicare.”
As of now, Gilliams husband has not returned to the public eye.
He has not held a press conference since the election.
However, in an interview with ABC News, he expressed a desire to return to the national stage.GILLIBRAND: I’ve always been interested in the national spotlight, and it’s exciting to be back on the national scene, to be talking about the challenges and the solutions, because there’s a lot of hope in America right now.
That’s why I have a passion for it.
I’m not going to give up on this because it’s not going away.
You have to be there for your friends.
And I am.
We’re going to keep fighting.
We can win this.
But it’s going to take a lot more than just us.
We have to have our friends in the White House.
I want to be in the front row with them.
We need to get out there and talk to them.
I know they love me.
It will be amazing.
They’ll be proud of me.
We’ll be talking to them for months.
We’ve got to keep talking to people.
We got to do everything we can to make
