Continue the fight for justice. This is important. – Bernie

It is enormously important that Joe Biden was elected, and it would not have been possible without a multi-racial, multi-generational movement of people coming together to say enough is enough

Thank you and congratulations.

Because of your efforts, we have won the most important election in the modern history of our country.

As I’ve said many times, this election was not just about Biden vs. Trump and what their views on the issues were. It went much deeper than that. This was an election about whether we end pathological lying in the White House and retain democracy and the rule of law in our country, and thank God, we have done that.

In the days and weeks to come I’m sure that everyone in the world is going to be taking credit for Biden’s victory, and the media and the pundits will have their views. But let me just say this.

In my view, multi-racial, multi-generational progressive grassroots organizations all across this country played an extraordinary role in helping to make this victory possible. We made phone calls, we texted, we registered voters, we did virtual rallies, we distributed literature and we knocked on doors when possible. Knowing the importance of this election we did everything that we could, and more.

Together, we built widespread support for Biden among young people, people of color and the working class. In my view, Biden’s success would not have been possible without those extraordinary efforts.

And I just want to thank you all for what you did.

One of the areas where the progressive movement had real success was getting more and more young people into the voting booth and into the political process. The latest estimates that I have seen show that over 53% of young people ages 18 to 29 voted, which not only eclipses 2016’s turnout rate, but would be the highest youth turnout rate in American history. And those young people voted overwhelmingly for Biden and other Democrats.

In battlegrounds like Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia young voters very strongly supported Biden and other Democrats. In Georgia, for example, 90% of young black voters and 62% of young white voters chose Biden over Trump. And that made all the difference not only in winning that state for Biden, but forcing two Republican senators into runoff elections that will determine which party controls the U.S. Senate. One of the candidates in that runoff election is Reverend Raphael Warnock, whom we strongly supported.

Further, the strong economic agenda that the progressive movement fought for helped bring out low-income working people to vote for Biden. National exit polls show that voters with an annual family income under $50,000 voted against Trump by a 15-point margin.

Needless to say, my campaign staff and I were deeply involved in this campaign. Over the last few months we hosted more than 20 virtual rallies, viewed by millions of people, in battleground states as well as special events with young people, rural voters, the Latino community and the Muslim community.

Starting in October, we re-launched some of our very effective organizing work to reach out directly to voters in key battleground states. A dedicated group of staff and volunteers had one-on-one conversations with voters to get them the information they needed to cast their votes in this election. Further, we ended up sending 4.6 million texts across 14 states thanks to the efforts of more than 800 texting volunteers who helped mobilize our movement in support of 75 down-ballot candidates and propositions.

We also played an active role in supporting down-ballot progressive candidates, because we understand that real change comes from the bottom on up. In total, we endorsed more than 200 candidates running for local and state positions. Of those races that have been called, two-thirds of our endorsed candidates won.

It is also worth mentioning that many progressive ballot initiatives passed across the country. In Florida, voters chose to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026. Colorado voters passed an initiative to provide 12 weeks of paid family leave. The people of Arizona voted to increase taxes on those making over $250,000 to increase funding for public education.

But now, as we celebrate our victories, we understand that our struggle is not over. It has just begun. We have accomplished step one by defeating Trump. Much more needs to be done.

Not only do we have to win the two Senate runoff elections in Georgia coming up in January so that we can have Democratic control over the U.S. Senate, but we’re going to have to do everything possible to make sure that Congress and the new president move rapidly and aggressively to address the enormous crises facing our country.

In the next several months I will present to the Senate an agenda that I would like to see passed in the first 100 days of the new Congress. This is an agenda that, among many other proposals, will include a strong COVID-19 relief package that protects the unemployed and small businesses.

It is an agenda that will end starvation wages in America, make it easier for workers to join unions and provide equal pay for equal work.

It is an agenda that will create millions of good-paying jobs as we rebuild our crumbling infrastructure.

It is an agenda that makes health care a human right as we move toward a Medicare for All single-payer system, and an agenda that substantially lowers the outrageously high cost of prescription drugs in this country.

It is an agenda that will make it possible for all working class young people to gain a college education without going into debt, and will radically improve our dysfunctional childcare system.

It is an agenda that will create millions of good-paying jobs as we lead the world in combating climate change and transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel.

It is an agenda that demands that the wealthy and powerful start paying their fair share of taxes.

It is an agenda that will take on the systemic racism that prevails throughout our country and our broken and racist criminal justice system.

It is an agenda that will lead to comprehensive immigration reform and a path towards citizenship for the undocumented.

Sisters and brothers, we have come a long way in the last five years. But the truth is that we still have an incredible amount of work ahead of us, and the path forward will not be easy.

Let us continue going forward together. Let us continue our struggle to transform this country and create a government based on the principles of justice.

Thank you for all you’ve done, and will do, for our movement.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

there is no single greater source for our campaign’s fundraising than emails like this one. And that’s important, because no one person, not even Bernie Sanders, can take on the billionaire class alone.

Before you go about the rest of your day, help power our fight against the billionaire class by making a contribution today.

Not the outcome we had hoped for

Not the outcome we had hoped for


Though we remain committed to ensuring that every vote is counted, it is clear that we will fall short of our goal in this election.

While this is not the outcome we had hoped for, I am immensely proud and deeply grateful for all that we have accomplished together in this historic campaign. A record number of votes have been cast in California’s 4th District, and our campaign will record the largest number of votes EVER for a House challenger in our community, earned from a broad coalition of support across the political spectrum.

In extraordinary and challenging times, we championed a different kind of politics, rooted in bringing people together who have been left behind by divisive partisanship that has plagued our country for far too long. We focused on bridging divides, listening to different points of view, and seeking out common ground to build a future of resilience, opportunity, and prosperity. I believe more than ever that this is the right course for our community and our country.

I am forever grateful to all of you for sharing your stories, generously contributing your time and resources, and providing such dedicated and unflinching support for this campaign. Though today this campaign comes to an end, the work of rebuilding and reconnecting as a nation is just beginning. And as I consider my own next steps, I do so more determined than ever to find ways to serve the community I love.

Thank you,

Brynne

Not the outcome we had hoped for

In one week, we vote him out

Tom McClintock has been in politics for 40 years, but the SacBee recently summed up his entire career in one word… “fruitless.”

He has had decades to fix real problems — and he has done nothing.

Brynne Kennedy is a different kind of candidate. She has a track record of solving real problems in the private sector. And she’s just as tired as we are of the divisive partisan chaos that plagues Washington — and do-nothing career politicians like Tom McClintock.

Tom McClintock NEVER fails to let our district down — so in two weeks, let’s send him home.

Michael, let’s not let Brynne down this election — can you help reach our end-of-month goal of $100,000 with a contribution today? Chip in $5 or more right now to help Brynne take the lead over Tom.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

While our campaign fights for the people of the 4th district, McClintock keeps fighting for party bosses in D.C. and the dark money groups that fund his campaign. It’s no surprise why independent watchdogs have rated Tom McClintock as the fifth most partisan member in all of Congress.

Brynne won’t play partisan games. As an accomplished businesswoman, she knows something about bringing people together and producing real results. She pioneered solutions to help more workers access good jobs in communities like ours, and she is uniquely qualified to help rebuild our local economy in the midst of this pandemic.

She actually cares about the needs of the people in our district, and she knows that we are neighbors and friends before we are Democrats or Republicans.

Enough is enough, it’s time to elect Brynne Kennedy and make this Tom McClintock’s last year in Congress. Michael, can you contribute $5 or more right now to help Brynne beat Tom?

DONATE

We have one week left. Let’s do this, team.

— Team Brynne Kennedy

Brynne Kennedy is running for Congress in California’s Fourth District because she believes Americans can do more together. An accomplished businesswoman, Brynne has created new solutions to help employers and workers thrive in today’s economy. As our voice in Washington, she will fight to take our government back from the corrupt special interests and will put partisanship aside to put our communities first.

Let’s stick the landing

Let’s stick the landing

I’m running for Congress in California’s 4th district. But if you’d asked me what I thought I’d be when I grew up, I would have said I’d be an Olympic gymnast.

For 10 years, I trained 30 hours a week to achieve my dream of representing our nation as an Olympian. But right before a big national competition, I tore two ligaments in my ankle. My hopes of becoming an Olympic gymnast had been extinguished.

To make matters worse, over the next few years, both my parents were diagnosed with cancer. My father later passed away, and thankfully my mother beat her diagnosis, but those were some of the toughest years of my life as a young woman finding her way in the world. In many ways, my parents’ battles with cancer shaped the way I think about health care. It’s why I’m so determined to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act.

The truth is, I wasn’t the most talented gymnast out there, but I worked harder and cared more than anyone else. And that’s the same energy we’ve brought into this campaign, from our own campaign staff to our amazing volunteers.

I always say, “If you believe more, if you care more, if you work harder, you can do incredible things.”

This is how we’re going to beat Tom McClintock. As a team — and a community — determined to overcome any obstacle to build a future that represents all of us.

So what do you say, Michael? Do you believe in this campaign? Do you want to help us beat Tom McClintock? If so, please give $5 or more to help us vault over Tom to take the lead.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

We’re less than two weeks away from the election, and I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am that you believe in me.

Now, let’s stick the landing and win this!
