Last night, while we were holding our largest rally of the campaign, a top Clinton surrogate told a much smaller audience that Hillary Clinton was under attack, and her supporters needed to "stand up and fight back, stand up against those idealists."
Let me tell you something, Compatriots:
There is nothing we have said in this campaign that is pie-in-the-sky, that is utopian. Nothing.
We are the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and we can create an economy where nobody who works 40 hours a week lives in poverty, where health care is a right for all Americans, and where kids of all backgrounds can go to college without crushing debt.
When we launched this campaign, I told everyone they should not underestimate us and that we were running to win. They thought we were pie-in-the-sky then, too.
But tomorrow we have a chance to win yet again — in Hillary Clinton’s own backyard. I need you to continue to fight with me.
Right now, thousands of people are contributing $2.70 to help us win New York tomorrow and the five states that vote in one week. Add your contribution to theirs right now and we can win this primary.
The energy, intelligence, and idealism of Americans, especially young Americans, have been the greatest agents for change in this country for generations.
Those qualities have also powered our campaign from the start, and it’s also what is going to help us take this country back from the billionaire class when we’re elected in November. But first, New York … tomorrow night. I need you with me.
