I go around the country with Elizabeth as her communications director.
She sets a fast pace on the campaign trail — sometimes literally (you might have seen me placing third in the background of that TMZ clip of her running to catch a train.)
It’s because she really prioritizes going to as many places — and talking with as many people — as possible. Here’s some of what that’s looked like, by the numbers:
Holding48events (with more on the books for today and tomorrow in New Hampshire)
In12states plus Puerto Rico
Taking over225unfiltered questions from voters
More than22,000attendees seeing her in person, and about13,000people staying afterwards to get selfies and chat with her
Not to mention, the access she’s given the media: she’s answered hundreds of questions from the press in 39 press conferences and close to 100 interviews
Now, here’s the thing: Elizabeth is only able to do this because she’s forgoing private fundraisers with wealthy donors and hours and hours of calling for big checks.
Our campaign is only possible because more than 135,000 grassroots donors have chipped in. So here’s one more number for you: Can you make your first contribution to help keep Elizabeth on the road and keep her voice front and center in this race?

And next week, we’re headed to South Carolina, Colorado, and Utah.
She hears directly from people about what’s going on in their lives — dealing with student debt, fighting to be able to get health care, trying to find good affordable child care, getting a check back from Citibank thanks to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
She wouldn’t hear all those same types of stories at swanky fundraisers where people have to drop thousands of dollars to get in the door. And she wouldn’t get to spend as much time building our grassroots movement.
So we’re running a different kind of presidential campaign — only powered by people like you giving what they can when they can — with no support from federal lobbyists, corporate PACs, or PACs of any kind.
