The following message is a part of our 2020 Presidential Candidate Series. For more information, see below.
Donald Trump and the RNC amassed $108 million last quarter, Michael. Give me a second to explain what that really means:
While I’m traveling across the country speaking directly with voters about the issues that impact all of us, Trump and his team are spending that money assembling an impressive ground game that will be at work long before we even have a Democratic nominee. We have a real fight ahead of us, Michael.
Our party’s eventual nominee will need the DNC to hand over an operation ready to take down Trump the moment the general election starts. That will take all of us fully supporting the Democratic Unity Fund, which is why I have to ask:
Will you make a $10 donation to my campaign and the DNC’s Democratic Unity Fund today? Every contribution will build the party infrastructure we need to win up and down the ballot in 2020.
If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will be split evenly between Kamala Harris’ campaign for president and the DNC.
If we want to defend our values of justice and equality in the years ahead, we must maintain our majority in the House, take back the Senate, and win the White House. Winning those elections demands early, strategic investment in the infrastructure to spread our message, mobilize voters, and get out the vote nationwide.
We have so many incredible candidates in this race sharing bold new ideas to fight for all of us. But our nominee is going to need a strong Democratic Party to win this election — and that can only happen with you, Michael. We can only win if we stand together, united.
The DNC is the only party committee tasked with electing Democrats from the statehouse to the White House. Donald Trump’s team is raising a historic amount of money so they can win by even larger margins in 2020 — we simply can’t let that happen.
Thanks for being a part of this,
P.S. Our eventual nominee and candidates up and down the ballot will need the full force of a strong Democratic Party to take on Donald Trump and Republicans at the ballot box. That’s why I’m asking: Will you donate $10 to my campaign and the DNC’s Democratic Unity Fund today?
Our 2020 Presidential Candidate Series is just one way we’re working to help our supporters hear directly from the Democratic candidates for president.
Sending fundraising emails like this one is a component of our Democratic candidates’ agreement with the DNC to share access to the DNC’s database of voter records. As a part of our agreement, every candidate who signs on sends the same number of emails to the DNC’s list, with proceeds going to a combination of the DNC and the candidate’s campaign. If you’re wondering why you’re not hearing from your preferred candidate, we may have already sent emails on their behalf or have plans to do so in the future, or they may not have signed on yet.
The DNC is committed to running a fair and transparent primary. This organization is powered by you, and we’d love to hear your ideas. Just reply to this email to send any comments, criticisms, or feedback. Our community management team reads every message from supporters like you. Thanks for supporting our party!
