Brothers and Sisters,
Can you imagine how you'll feel on the night of the Iowa caucuses if it turns out Bernie comes up just short? After all we’ve accomplished together against impossible odds … it'd be devastating.
With your support Bernie has brought us within striking distance of winning. But the new NBC poll released just this morning shows we still have critical ground to make up in Iowa.
NBC News Poll (Jan. 10, 2016)
Your $3 contribution to Bernie’s campaign could be the difference between victory and defeat for our political revolution. Make one today.
By all accounts, Hillary Clinton has dramatically ramped up her fundraising since we announced our record-breaking number of small-dollar, individual contributions.
Earlier this week, the Clinton campaign raised almost two million dollars in one day from just three events with millionaires!
But our campaign is funded by emails like these. That’s why your contribution today is so important.
Bernie wants to talk to you
Dear Bernie Supporter,
This campaign has always been about winning. We set out to build a political movement and organize massive voter turnout necessary for victory. With your help we're doing just that — organizing in record numbers in every state in the nation.
As a result — and to the disbelief of the corporate media and the political establishment — Bernie is on the verge of scoring historic upsets in Iowa and New Hampshire.
On January 23, Bernie wants to deliver a live video message to you, his hardest working supporters. With just a week before the Iowa caucus, followed soon after by the New Hampshire primary, it will be time to get focused with laser precision on the work necessary to pull off victory in the early states and beyond.
Whether it's at home with a few friends or in a public venue with a few hundred, will you help organize this giant event for Bernie?
Democrats will win the 2016 presidential election if massive numbers of voters turn out, including voters who too often sit out on Election Day. Bernie, backed by millions of active supporters, is our best chance for winning the White House.
The inspiring work you've been doing to share Bernie's message with voters has put victory within reach. But if we're going to help Bernie win the nomination there's much more to do.
Bernie is going to lay that out for us on January 23. Whether it's at a local theater, library meeting room, pub, or a volunteer's living room, Bernie wants to talk to you at 6 PM Eastern / 5 PM Central / 3 PM Pacific.
We want as many supporters as possible to have a chance to gather with fellow volunteers and hear Bernie's message.
There will be a live stream for you to tune into to hear Bernie deliver a special message directly to supporters. If you can host an event — either at a public venue or at your home — we need you to get more info and sign up today.
If you can't host an event, please save the date and we'll be sending you information soon about events near you.
The impossible is within reach — and Bernie is going to explain what he needs us to do to bring victory home in key early contests. Please save the date for an important address from Bernie at a crucial moment in this historic campaign.
Dear Senator Mr. BERNARD SANDERS,
I received your email: Date: 01/08/2016 12:55 GMT-02:00, below, demonstrating that my pursuits for your campaign have achieved satisfactory results to strengthen your victory.
I consider when you say "our country" philosophically speaking where our thinking based on altruistic feelings and high character - prudence, courage and perseverance, come to commune with your democratic leadership, coupled with largely to thoughts President Barack Obama; and that arouses in my person, the search for scientific solutions in Sociology and Moral Sciences (Science of Construction or Scientific Psychology) Natural Lows, to the enhancement of Social Welfare of our people, in our homelands.
For not being American, I can only work with new ideas, plans and suggestions for your campaign, so I cannot contribute $ 5.00.
But I wish the record, that in Brazil there are people enjoying your patriotic conduct.
However, more moneyed, ie Millionaires and the Middle Class battle by Republicans USA.
The poor are left - Socialist.
To enrich this contact annexed your selfless high level of correspondence addressed to President Barack Obama, to the American Citizens know more your way of feeling, thinking and action.

Bernie Sanders for President
For many months I have been traveling from coast to coast across our country, and have had the opportunity to meet with thousands of good, hard-working, and remarkable people. Like you and me, they are deeply concerned about the future of our country.
They wonder why they are working longer hours for lower wages. They worry about whether their kids will be able to afford college or get decent jobs. They fear that they may not have the savings to retire with dignity and security.
The challenges facing our country are enormous. That's why I am running to become the next President of the United States.
You've already signed up to join our campaign, and for that I thank you. Can you take the next step and contribute $5 to our campaign?
It's not just that, for forty years, the middle class has been disappearing. It's that 99% of all new income is going to the top 1%, and the grotesque level of wealth and income inequality today is worse than at any time since the late 1920s. The people at the top are grabbing all the new wealth and income for themselves, and the rest of America is being squeezed and left behind.
The disastrous decisions of the Supreme Court in the Citizens United case and in other related decisions are undermining the very foundations of American democracy, as billionaires rig the system by using their Super PACs to buy politicians and elections.
And the peril of global climate change, with catastrophic consequences, is the central challenge of our times and our planet.
The middle class in America is at a tipping point. It will not last another generation if we don't boldly change course now.
After a year of travel, discussion and dialogue, I have decided to be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President. But let's be clear. This campaign is not about Bernie Sanders. It's about a grassroots movement of Americans standing up and saying: "Enough is enough. This country and our government belong to all of us, not just a handful of billionaires."
I run not to oppose any man or woman, but to propose new and far-reaching policies to deal with the crises of our times. And I run because I know we must change course now, or risk losing the future for so many to the interests of so few.
A successful national campaign is a massive undertaking, especially when we will be heavily outspent. It will require the active participation of millions of Americans in every community in our country. In fact, it will require nothing less than a political revolution that combats the demoralization and alienation of so many of our people from the political process.
Let me be very honest. It may be too late to stop the billionaire class from trying to buy the Presidency and Congress. The forces of greed already may be too powerful.
But we owe it to our children and grandchildren to try. We owe it to them to make the fight and, through the power of our numbers, turn back this assault on the foundation of our democracy and our future.
We are at a moment of truth. We need to face up to the reality of where we are as a nation, and we need a mass movement of people to fight for change.
I believe America is ready for a new path to the future.
Senator Bernie Sanders
