If you were wondering how the political and financial establishment of this country would respond to us winning six of seven contests, most of them by extraordinary margins, here’s your answer:
Over the next 15 days alone, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has scheduled 33 high-dollar fundraisers.
While Bernie is campaigning in Wisconsin and New York, the Clinton campaign is traveling to places that have already voted like Colorado, Virginia, and Florida to collect massive checks, including one event where couples can contribute $353,000 to sit with George Clooney.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with George Clooney. Everybody loves George Clooney. We’ll even plug his new movie, “Money Monster” that appears to be about the destruction caused by the greed, recklessness, and fraud on Wall Street.
But that $353,000 is an outrageous sum of money.
And one of the great questions of this campaign is whether people coming together can overcome the electoral influence of a small number of millionaires and billionaires who are buying our elections.
That is why as we near the Wisconsin primary, we have to ask:
Can Bernie count on you to contribute $3 to our campaign to help us win in Wisconsin and as a way of saying you have had ENOUGH of millionaires and billionaires buying elections? You can do that here.
The next three weeks are likely the most important of the campaign. Wisconsin votes, New York votes, Wyoming caucuses, and a handful of large and important states make their choice on April 26th.
The political and financial establishment of this country are hoping that we’ve run out of gas. And that’s because they know that if we continue to stand together, we have a very good chance to win this Democratic primary.
