We are officially one week away from the biggest night of the campaign.
Yes, Yang Gang. We have kicked, and scratched, and clawed our way onto the biggest arena in American politics. We will be sharing our message with tens of millions of people, next to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. And it is all because of you.
On my first day as campaign manager, I printed out a massive poster of the New York Times quote and hung it on our wall in HQ. Many of you have seen us use it as a rallying cry this year:
“Andrew Yang is a longer-than-longshot for the White House in 2020.”
“That’s the baseline,” I said to our team. “Prove them wrong.”
It has been one year and three months since we hung that sign.
We’re now out-polling sitting senators and governors, we’ve built a massive grassroots donor army, and we’re polling in 8th place, asserting ourselves as a force to be reckoned with.
We will not stop there.
Which is why we need your help, one week from the debates. We are a little over 6,000 donors away from hitting the 130,000 donor requirement for the third debate. If we hit this target, we’re virtually guaranteed to stick around through 2020 – the field will winnow and we’ll be one of the few contenders standing.
Can you donate just $1 today and help us get there before we hit the debate stage next week?
We were driving across New Hampshire the other day and the gravity of the whole thing finally hit me. On one hand, I kinda teared up – I know we are meant to be here and we have an incredible opportunity to improve the lives of millions of people.
On the other hand, my killer instinct kicked in – we will not shy away from our moment.
Yang is working his tail off to knock these debates out of the park. The first round of debates will be an introduction to Andrew. He is going to introduce his ideas to the world and wake America up to our rapidly changing economy. The second round of debates will be where we hit our stride – and this campaign will become an unstoppable wave that will bring our solutions crashing down on Washington in 2020.
We are fighting every day for you. Please give $1 today and keep us in this fight for the long haul.
And you can bet this longer-than-longshot will make it worth every penny.
Campaign Manager, Yang2020
