Just a short while ago, our campaign reached 1 million individual contributors
Just a short while ago, our campaign reached 1 million individual contributors — and we did it earlier than any campaign in history, including our own in 2016.
I am very proud of that fact. You should be too.
This is historic. We are also the only Democratic candidate with more individual contributions than Donald Trump, which shows we are the movement that can best defeat him.
Reaching this important milestone proves that one can run for president without racing all around the country begging millionaires and billionaires for campaign contributions at high-dollar fundraisers.
That number proves that when candidates for president speak honestly and authentically about the problems and the needs of working people and young people in this country, they will respond.
That is what we are doing on this campaign, and it is why we are going to win.
But winning this election will require more than just a record number of contributions — although that is certainly something we will need to continue to push for as we end this critical FEC fundraising quarter.
Winning this election will require people of all backgrounds and all communities talking to their friends and talking to strangers about the stakes in this election, and how our campaign is the one building a movement capable of not just defeating Donald Trump, but transforming our nation.
And all this week, supporters are joining Plan to Win events all across this country. So I am asking:
Can you attend a Plan to Win event in your area? Here’s the closest one to you:
Bernie 2020 Plan to Win Party!
Saturday, September 21
Event starts at 1:00 p.m.
218 W Fountain Way
Fresno, CA 93705
Like I have said from the beginning: no candidate, not Bernie Sanders, not the greatest candidate you can possibly imagine, is capable of taking on Donald Trump and the billionaire class of this country alone.
There is only one way — and that is together.
Thank you for saying you’ll participate in a Plan to Win event this week.
