The Biden campaign didn’t miss a beat trying to capitalize on the, um, buzz of the vice presidential debate.
Within minutes of the debate wrapping up Wednesday, the Biden campaign tweeted a photo of Joe Biden with a fly swatter and a caption that said, “Pitch in $5 to help this campaign fly.”
In case you missed it: A fly very noticeably landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s stiffly coiffed head as he debated Sen. Kamala Harris. The fly lingered, and the internet couldn’t stop talking about it.
Two hours later, the Biden campaign website was peddling $10 “Truth Over Flies” swatters.
And within a few hours more, a campaign spokesperson said, the nearly 35,000 swatters had sold out.
