I’m running for president because our country is running out of time. As a country, we’re at a make-or-break moment, and we need solutions bold enough to meet our greatest challenges and big enough to bring Americans together to get it done.
We’re building a campaign that can win — that can deliver on that vision. The first votes will be cast in just four months. From there, the primaries unfold rapidly. We have only a little more time to prepare.
That’s why we flipped the switch on Phase Three, the grassroots organizing season of our campaign. We also asked for your help to fund it, and you came through in a big, big way. We raised more than $750,000 in a single day.
Now, with the end of the quarter upon us, we’re aiming higher. This is Quarter Three to fund Phase Three. When we did the math, here’s the number we landed on: $1.5 million.
It’s a lot, I know. But it’s what we need to hit to show strength when the numbers are made public and analyzed in the media. Practically, it’ll go a long way toward funding our organizers in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. These races are won on the ground, and we need to make sure our teams have everything they need.
To participate in politics is to be hopeful. And I can tell you that every day of this campaign, I’ve grown more hopeful. It’s the sum of the stories you’ve shared with me. It’s the hard work of volunteers and organizers on the ground who are adopting communities as their own — communities that are, in turn, adopting them.
We want to bring a message of hope to more places — on the ground, online, over the air. Where people are, this campaign will go. We’ll bring a message of hope. We’ll take with us a vision that sets out to solve our greatest problems with new ideas, ones bold enough to meet our challenges and big enough to bring people together to get them done.
You’ll hear from more of the team about this goal — and thanks in advance for your patience as they write with reminders and updates as the deadline nears. We have five days to hit it — and these next five days will influence what we do over the coming months. We can meet this moment, so long as we meet it with urgency and unity.
