Something pretty wild happened when our campaign and the Clinton campaign filed FEC reports yesterday.
Yes, the overwhelming majority of money raised directly by the Clinton campaign in February came from big-dollar donations.
Yes, a former hedge fund executive’s family gave millions of dollars to her super PAC.
These things are to be expected by now.
But what we never expected was that our supporters, a large number of working Americans giving small amounts of money at a time, raised more than the Clinton campaign. A lot more … almost two times as much in direct contributions.
Now, the Clinton campaign has still raised more than us to date.
But we are catching up.
And when we do, that’s going to make it easier for us to run the margins we need to gain the delegate lead on June 7th. But that will only happen if supporters like you keep stepping up.
Add your $3 contribution to our campaign by midnight tonight – ahead of our important primary and caucuses tomorrow night. It could make the difference.
Bernie likes to say that when people stand together, anything is possible.
In this campaign, our supporters — giving small amounts of money — are taking on Wall Street, pharmaceutical interests, and people who profit from the destruction of the planet.
And we are winning. If we keep going, we can win this nomination.
All my best,
