Sharing a new email from Jeff Weaver, Bernie Sanders’
Campaign Manager, discussing upcoming primary elections. FYI .. I just copy & paste the text. The contribution requests are Bernie’s, not mine.
In less than a week, voters in Washington will head to caucus locations across the state to make their choice in the Democratic primary. So Bernie and Hillary Clinton are heading there on Tuesday for dueling events.
Bernie is speaking at an arena that holds more than 17,000 people, free of charge. Hillary Clinton is going with a more … expensive event, one that costs as much as$50,000 in bundled fundraising to meet her at a private reception.
Here’s the truth: Bernie doesn’t go around begging millionaires and billionaires for campaign contributions because he believes you can’t change a corrupt political system by taking its money. This campaign is funded by working Americans, and it’s an important week for all of us.
Tomorrow we find out the results from Democrats Abroad where we should do well. Democrats in three states make their choices for the nominee on Tuesday, and Washington caucuses on Saturday. It’s an important stretch, and that’s why Bernie wants me to ask:
Late last week, Bernie drew an enormous crowd of 14,000 in Utah. Huge audiences have showed up to watch him speak at multiple events in Arizona, and he’s spent considerable time in Idaho as well.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has taken a number of days off the campaign trail to raise money. When you contribute to emails like this one, it allows Bernie to spend his time doing what candidates for the highest office in the land should be doing: talking to voters. That’s why your $3 contribution today is so important — it gives us a real advantage in states where Bernie can spend a good amount of time.
We’ve had this weekmarked on the calendar from the beginning of the campaign because this is when the map shifts dramatically in our favor. We’re excited to share some big victories with you in thenext few days, and if you continue to stand with Bernie, we can win this nomination.
