Today’s the deadline to hit our July fundraising goal. The pressure is on.
Most candidates would spend these final hours doing “call time” — also known as calling wealthy donors and asking for money.
I don’t host any closed-door fundraisers with the wealthiest donors. I don’t spend time on the phone buttering them up. Our democracy is not for sale, and neither is my time — every supporter gets equal access and owns an equal piece of our movement.
Soon, I’ll be doing my style of “call time” again — thanking a few of the grassroots donors who give what they can, whether it’s $5, $15, or $50.
So if you can chip in whatever is meaningful and realistic for you before our midnight deadline, keep an eye on your phone. If you get a call from an unknown number, pick up — it might be me!
