When I decided to run for president

Dear Compatriots, 

When I decided to run for president, I had to decide: should I start a super PAC and travel the country begging millionaires and billionaires to contribute to my campaign? 

It took me about a tenth of a second to decide against that.

Instead, we chose a different path, and it's very moving to me that our campaign has received more than 5 million individual contributions from working people and the middle class who want us to transform this country in significant ways.

So that’s why I send these emails, because it is how we’re able to run a campaign that is not beholden to Wall Street, the pharmaceutical industry, and those who profit from the destruction of the planet. 

And it’s why I have to ask directly – one more time – ahead of the most important day of the campaign to date:

This campaign is 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."

Every single contribution we receive not only amplifies that message, but helps ensure we’ll have the resources we need to win.

In solidarity,
Bernie Sanders
