One of the reasons we are doing so well in this election is because the American people understand that you cannot change a corrupt political system by taking its money.
Our campaign is funded by almost 4 million individual contributions made by people like you responding to emails like this one. That allows Bernie to spend time doing what you expect a candidate to do: talking to voters.
By contrast, Hillary Clinton left the campaign trail today and is in New York City hosting a fundraiser with financial service executives where self-described “champions” give her campaign the maximum amount of money allowable under the law.
Here’s the truth: The Clinton campaign would not be leaving the campaign trail unless they were finding it difficult to keep pace with our historic numbers of individual contributions. And they also wouldn’t do it unless it was for a grotesque amount of money from a small number of super rich people. Probably at least $500,000.
