When we started this campaign, we were down almost 50 points in New York — the state where Hillary Clinton was elected to two terms in the U.S. Senate.
We didn’t get the victory we had hoped for this evening, but what’s important is that it looks like we’re going to win a lot more delegates in New York than any state that voted or caucused before tonight.
So what does that mean?
Five important states vote one week from tonight, with more delegates at stake than Hillary Clinton led by coming intotonight.
And if we do well next Tuesday, we remain in a position to take the pledged delegate lead when almost 700 delegates are up for grabs on June 7.
As you read this, thousands of supporters are responding to tonight’s results with contributions because they believe we can win. I need to know if I can count on you to add yours.
If everybody who has signed up to support our campaign made a $2.70 contribution tonight, we will have the resources we need to do very well next week and to take the pledged delegate lead on June 7.
From the day we started this campaign, the corporate media counted us out.
The political establishment and financial elite organized against us.
But every great movement in American history faced many of the same obstacles and eventually won because of a simple, timeless human truth:
when people come together, when they stand together even through adversity, they win.
And so will we.
