The other day, Beto asked you to share your reasons for supporting this campaign, and I can’t begin to thank you enough for what you’ve written. I’ve honestly lost count of how many I’ve saved and shared with the team.
And that’s important, because campaigns are tough. Real tough. Especially when trying to keep up with Beto. He’s driven more than 7,500 miles to meet with thousands of voters in 150 towns across 20 states without skipping a beat. But the stories we hear on the road and the ones you shared the other day are what make it all worth it. They fuel us when we’re tired and remind us why we’re fighting so hard to win this thing.
Below, I’m going to share a few of those stories with you. And if you find them as inspiring as I did — or if you’re already standing with Beto — I hope you’ll make a $3 donation to our campaign today.
I love this one from Julie in Detroit. Beto could just spend his days on the phone begging for donations, but instead, he’s traveling all over the country to speak with people face-fo-face.
Or this one from Doris in Chicago. We’re honored to have your support, Doris, and can’t wait to keep building this campaign together.
Or this one from Nick in Corvallis, Oregon. I see the same exact thing that you do, Nick. It’s one of the reasons why I moved halfway across the country to join this campaign.
Lastly, this story from Allison in Houston. All of us need to come together if we’re going to end this cruel and inhumane crisis at the border. And knowing that so many people are organizing in their own communities to help achieve that goal is truly inspiring.
These are barely a fraction of the 1,000+ stories we received so far. And we’re still making our way through the list. But I wanted to thank you — all of you — for everything you’ve done and will continue to do. We have a long road ahead of us, and your continued support is what keeps us more energized than ever.
