  1. July 9, 2015 – shortly after Jeb Bush announced that his super PAC had raised $114 million.

    “We still don’t know the details of who gave all that money, but we believe some of it came in the form of million – and even multimillion dollar checks from a small handful of right-wing mega-donors.” – Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook

    May 5, 2016 – shortly after Donald Trump becomes the presumptive Republican Party nominee.

    “Hillary Clinton’s supporters in recent days have been making a furious round of calls to top Bush family donors to try to convince them that she represents their values better than Donald Trump.” – Politico

    Bernie Sanders believes that you cannot change a corrupt system by taking its money.

    We are funding our campaign a different way. And every vote we earn, delegate we claim, and state we win from now until the convention is only because people have come together to say they are SICK AND TIRED of the billionaire class buying our candidates and elections. And that’s why we ask:

    Can Bernie count on you to make a $2.70 contribution today? Your donation, along with the thousands being made right now, will ensure we have the resources we need to fight for the values we share through the Democratic convention.

    Donald Trump’s nomination means the Democratic Party has a generational opportunity to establish itself as the party that will fight to provide health care as a right for every man, woman and child in this country. The party that will lead the way to tuition-free college so kids can graduate without crushing debt. The party that takes our democracy back from the oligarchy that Trump and Jeb Bush represent.

    That is what the political revolution is about, and why your contribution is so important.

  3. If we are able to win in West Virginia tomorrow, not only would we cut further into Secretary Clinton’s lead, but it will send a powerful message to the Democratic Party establishment about an issue at the heart of our campaign in that state: poverty.

    When Bernie talks about transformational change in this country, he is talking about the millions of Americans who live in poverty, who have been tossed out, left behind, and abandoned by the rich and the powerful. People like those in McDowell County, West Virginia, where he visited last week.

    So let’s go out and win this primary tomorrow, because doing so will send an unmistakable message that our political revolution demands more than incremental change. We want an economy that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent. But we need your help to get there:

    Your $2.70 contribution before West Virginia votes will help us win an important state and send a powerful message that you demand a campaign for transformational change from the Democratic Party’s nominee.

    Eight years ago, Hillary Clinton won West Virginia with 67 percent of the vote. She beat Barack Obama by 41 points. But we are doing very well, precisely because Bernie is willing to tell the truth about the issues facing working families across the this country, and what is required to change course.

    If we continue to stand together and fight, I believe that we will win tomorrow.
