We’re proud to have a $28 average donation, because it shows that our movement is powered by thousands of grassroots supporters. And we’re proud to have 80% new donors, because it shows…

Warren for President

It’s hard to believe we’re already more than halfway through July. But, right now, we’re not halfway to our July fundraising goal.

July is the first month after the FEC fundraising deadline, and we want to build on top of the numbers we are really proud of — when we showed that we can fund a presidential campaign without catering to big money and powerful special interests.

That’s why we’re reaching out. We need your help to get back on track — because this grassroots movement is built by you, and by people like you across the country.

In the last three months, 80 percent of our donors were brand-new — a great sign that our movement is growing. Our goal is to keep up that pace, but we’re behind right now. Will you help continue to grow our movement and chip in for the first time today?

For years, the district I represent in the Central Valley was considered a Republican stronghold.

In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a donation to my campaign. But I hope you’ll let me explain why your donation is so important — especially today.

For years, the district I represent in the Central Valley was considered a Republican stronghold. And for years, special interests knew they could count on a reliable rubber stamp to repeal the Affordable Care Act, placate Big Oil, and give unfair tax breaks to the ultra-wealthy. In 2018, we changed that.

Our win was a huge upset, but what’s more important is how we did it. Unlike my opponent, we rejected all corporate PAC money and relied on grassroots support to win the closest race in the state by just 862 votes.

Here’s the truth: The Republicans think our win was a fluke, and they’re betting we won’t have the same energy in 2020. That’s why they have listed me as one of their top targets, and we just got word that my previous opponent former Rep. David Valadao is seriously considering a rematch against me.

Never in the history of politics

Never in the history of politics

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

 

Yesterday evening, we filed our FEC report. And what it showed was that we are funding this campaign in an unprecedented way.

Never in the history of politics has a campaign raised so much money from so many individual contributions with such a low average donation ($19) as we have.

I am very proud of that fact.

But the truth is, we were out-raised this time. Not by much. But enough that we are going to need a lot more donations from people like you to catch up. So today, I have to ask:

Can you please make your first online contribution to our 2020 campaign? Even $2.70 goes a long way and will help us win. Thank you.

Emails like this are the primary way we fund our campaign. It’s quite extraordinary when you think about it. But that is why your response to these messages is so important.

In solidarity,

Faiz Shakir
Campaign Manager

I’m so proud of my son for this

I’m so proud of my son for this

Friend,

I’m so proud to be writing you about the latest plan my son Cory announced yesterday — as president, he will fight to expand access to high-quality, affordable, long-term care.

Most Americans will need long-term care at some point in their lives, and because of high costs, many will become caregivers themselves.

My husband (and Cory’s father) Cary fought Parkinson’s disease for 25 years, and during that time, our entire family became caregivers. It was a labor of love, but it’s one of the hardest jobs out there.

So please, sign on in support of Cory’s plan to help families with long-term care.

5%? Andrew Surges in NH!

5%? Andrew Surges in NH!

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

 

 

Friend —

We’ve been excited about growth in the polls lately. The first poll that qualified Andrew for the fall debates was just last week. 2% is the threshold for that debate, and Andrew was able to clear that hurdle.

Now, he’s jumped even higher.

A poll released by St. Anselm College – described by a local activist as “gold” in the state – has Andrew at 5%. It’s one of the biggest gains they saw.

Andrew’s message is beginning to separate him from the pack of candidates likely to drop out sometime ahead of the September debate. With polls like these, Andrew will be able to continue to fight for a new economy that puts humanity first.

In order to celebrate Andrew’s 5%, please donate $5 today.

Or, if you want to give us some good luck towards 10% in the polls, please donate $10 today!

-Yang2020

Beto for America

 

I joined this campaign because I believe in Beto and I know he is the best person to lead our country forward. This country is facing existential challenges like climate change, economic inequality, gun violence and Trump’s immigration policies that have caused chaos at the border and rejected our values as a country. Beto believes that we can’t solve these problems with the same old approach. We need to bring about a new kind of politics, where millions of Americans are finally brought into our democracy.

This campaign is your campaign. We aren’t beholden to PACs, to corporations, or to lobbyists; we’re beholden only to you. We believe in being transparent about our work and our plans — and we want to hear from you too. It’s going to take all of us to take on Donald Trump and your voice in this campaign really matters to us. Because of that, I wanted to give my first campaign update directly to you.

I am so proud of what we are building together, so let’s get into it!

Here’s what we’ve got:
