Aloha Friend —
My team just told me that our campaign has blown past the 130,000 unique donor threshold to qualify for the September debates and with your help, we can build on this momentum and pass 150,000 donors this weekend!
Thank you, and congratulations. I’m so proud of where this underdog, people-powered campaign has been, and more importantly, where we’re headed.
In just 24 hours we have:
- Had our biggest fundraising day of the campaign
- Crossed the 130,000 unique donor threshold, with more than 1000 donors from over 30 states
- For the second time, become the most googled candidate of my debate
I would not have been on that debate stage without your support. Thank you.
I love our country, and I love the American people. That’s why I’m in it to win it. When I first ran for Congress against a former popular mayor, I was 45 points behind and all the political pundits had written me off. I ended up winning by a 20 point margin of victory.
When I stood on the debate stage in Detroit on Wednesday night, talking about the many challenges facing our country — the self-serving politicians and well monied corporate lobbyists, the lies we are told by the military industrial complex to justify their costly regime change wars, our broken immigration system, our sick care system — I never forgot that I was on that stage because of you, and for you.
When I challenged Kamala Harris for her problematic criminal justice record, it wasn’t to make headlines. It was because I will always stand up for what is right and true, and call out whoever I need to, for the people.
Now, the establishment is doing all they can to ignore and marginalize my campaign. But in 2020, they will again be reminded that in our democracy, it is the American people who choose our president, not the rich, powerful elite.
Fighting for the wellbeing of the American people, our nation, and our planet is far more important than the partisan fights that dominate the 24-hour news cycle. It’s bigger than Republican versus Democrat. It’s about the ideals that unite us all as Americans. I will fight for the rights and freedoms of all Americans, upholding the founding principles of our Constitution. Fighting for liberty and justice for all. Fighting for every single American, regardless of race or religion, as we strive towards that more perfect union.
As your president, I will bring this unifying spirit of love for country and the soldier’s values of service above self to the White House, truly leading a government of, by and for the people
Thank you for your continued support. Together, we will usher in a new era of peace and prosperity for all.
