In just a few short weeks, I’ll take the stage for the first debate of this Democratic primary. This will be a huge opportunity for our campaign: millions of voters will tune in for the first time to hear how our campaign plans to meet the difficult challenges we face as a country, and what sets us apart.
In November of 2020, we’re going to want a candidate on that stage who can prosecute the case against the destructive policies of President Trump. I can make that case. Our work starts right now, with this first debate.
Before I take the debate stage, I want to make sure you have had a chance to share your input with my team and me. Ours is a campaign of the people, by the people, and for the people — meaning you make our campaign possible. That’s why your feedback matters so much.
What matters most to me in this campaign is this: whether the issues we’re campaigning on and the policies we’re proposing are relevant to the lives of real people. There are plenty of candidates in this race who can give a really lovely speech — but I’m running for president to deliver real solutions to the real issues that impact real people.
That’s why it’s important to me that when I’m on that debate stage in a few weeks, I know what’s on your mind — including what you think about the major issues facing our country, and what information you’re looking to learn from candidates in this debate.
I’m proud of the campaign we’re building together. We’re not taking a dime from corporate PACs or special interests. Instead, we’re building our campaign from the ground up.
We’re powered by regular folks pitching in a few dollars at a time. By people taking action in their communities across our country to build our organization on the ground.
This campaign isn’t about me. It’s about all of us, and what we’re going to do together to move our country forward. That’s why I value your input so much.
