The debate stage

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Friend,
I’ve got to be honest up front — this is an email about debate rules. (But it’s less boring than it sounds, I promise.)
The first Democratic presidential debates are still a few months away, but we already know what it takes to make it on that stage — the DNC will decide who belongs in the debates based on how many individual donors each campaign has.
And everyone who chips in before our first FEC fundraising deadline will always be the founders of this campaign — the very people responsible for getting this grassroots team off the ground.

They don’t say we’re radical any more…

Sisters and Brothers –

When Bernie Sanders started talking about a Medicare for All, single-payer health care system, they called him a radical. They said it was a fringe idea.

But then our 2016 campaign happened, and because of you health care as a right is now an idea supported by a majority of the American people.

So today, the calls from our opponents have changed. They don’t say we’re radical anymore. Today they say things like “slow down,” or that incremental change is the best we can do. You’ll mostly hear those calls coming from inside of D.C. think tanks, or from insurance company lobbyists and people with excellent health care.

So we want to get a sense from you on how big of a deal Medicare for All would be for our country, or whether we should “slow down.” 

Take our first official Medicare for All survey. We’ll review the results and get them to Bernie this week. So we’re hoping to hear from you today.

Two years ago he was a young Congressman from El Paso, Texas.

Now, after nearly flipping the conservative bastion of Texas blue, Beto’s made some serious headlines about his choice to take on Trump in 2020!

↓↓ Take our one-click poll and weigh in ↓↓

Beto's in. Do you support his run for President in 2020? Yes />> No >>


We know, we know — TONS of people want to run against Trump.

But think — if Beto can take one of THE MOST CONSERVATIVE states in the nation and turn it into a swing state — what would that mean for Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Florida?

If Democrats win there, we WIN the White House by a landslide!

Will you be a founding donor of this campaign?

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Team,
There are two reasons I’m going to ask you to make a donation to this campaign today.
The first is that our FEC fundraising deadline is just days away. The end-of-quarter report we are required to file after March will be the first opportunity for the world to see what kind of campaign we’re building together.
What I hope people will see is a campaign that is thriving while living its values. We need to show that we have the resources and grassroots backing to run a presidential campaign that can compete with Donald Trump next fall.
But we also need to show we’re building this the right way. We made a point from the beginning of rejecting contributions from powerful special interests — we’re not taking a dollar from corporate PACs or D.C. lobbyists. When we file our first report, every single donation will be from someone who chipped in because they believe in building something unapologetically bold but also unwaveringly optimistic about what Americans can get done when we pull together.
The second reason I’m asking you to chip in is a lot more symbolic.
The people who are part of that first report we put out into the world mean much more to me than names and numbers. You will always be the founders of this campaign — the people who took a chance on me and who believed my voice should be part of this debate.

This morning on MSNBC: baseball contracts, Norwegian literature, and the role of faith

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

From: Pete for America <info@peteforamerica.com> 
Sent: Wednesday, March 20, 2019 10:56 AM
Subject: This morning on MSNBC: baseball contracts, Norwegian literature, and the role of faith
 
Hi there,
Pete was on MSNBC’S Morning Joe earlier today, where they discussed everything from Jesus Christ to baseball contracts and Norwegian literature. 
Pete has thoughtful answers and we think you should hear them. Take a read or click through for the full video clip of each question for a closer look of a few key issues: 
 
Pete Buttigieg: So a few things. First of all, one remarkable thing we saw a few days ago was VoteVets, a progressive veteran organization, and a conservative veterans organization coming together to say that we’ve got to put an end to the forever wars and Congress needs to reassert its war powers. 
Now the reality is this isn’t just a story of presidents asserting more and more executive authority, this is also a story of Congress kind of not wanting to get mixed up in that. So right now, we have troops around the world – I mean East Africa — based on an authorization for use of military force that goes back to dealing with 9/11. You can be old enough to enlist today and not have even been alive for 9/11.

I have only ever had one client: the people

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

I’m reaching out today to ask you to make your very first contribution to our campaign for president. I don’t mind if it’s $10, $5, or even $1: what matters most to me is that you consider making a contribution of an amount that is affordable and meaningful to you.
But before I ask, I am going to share a little bit about why our campaign is doing things differently, and why every single grassroots contribution — no matter what amount — means so much. 
In the years since President Trump was elected, this administration has aligned itself with white supremacists at home and cozied up to dictators abroad, ripped babies from their mothers’ arms in a grotesque violation of their human rights, and handed huge tax cuts to corporations and the extremely wealthy while working families live paycheck to paycheck. They have derailed our fight to stop climate change and save our planet, sabotaged health care for millions of families, and imperiled a woman’s right to control her own body — all while using fear and lies to divide and distract us.
We are better than this. But we’re going to have to prove it. We’re going to have to fight for it. I’ve never backed down from a tough fight in my life, and I’m not going to start now.
I’m counting on you to join me. If you believe in our vision for America, I am calling on you to make your first contribution to our campaign today. Whether it’s $1, $5, or $25, every single grassroots donation is another vote of support for our movement.
