These super PACs were not supposed to attack us

Bernie Sanders for President

One of the consequences of the Supreme Court's disastrous decision in Citizens United is a flow of unlimited cash to super PACs from millionaires, billionaires, and even corporations.

These super PACs can take in as much money as they want, free from campaign finance limits adhered to by candidates.

We don't have a super PAC, and we don't want one. The Clinton campaign has several. When this campaign began, those Clinton super PACs were supposed to stay on the sidelines during the primaries. That is no longer the case.

Clinton super PACs are now spending millions of dollars to fight our movement. I don't think that's right. We should have a fight for the Democratic nomination fair and square. So we're turning to you again to help us even the scales against this super PAC spending.

We are now tied for delegates elected by voters, 51 to 51.

But now that millionaires and billionaires' super PACs are heavily involved in this race, we will need to really step up our efforts to talk to voters and help our campaign win.

Thank you for all you've done. Let's keep going.

In solidarity,
