Email Message From Bernie: Let me explain why this request is so important, especially today

In just a moment I am going to ask you to make a donation to Ben Jealous’ campaign for Governor of Maryland. And while I know you may not be from that state, I hope you’ll give me a chance to explain why this request is so important, especially today.

With Donald Trump in the White House, it is more important than ever that we elect great governors all across this country. And in this election, it is our job not only to defeat Trumpism, but to do it by supporting candidates who offer a progressive vision and hope for where this country can go.

And I am here to tell you that there are very few individuals I know — running for any office — who have the record of progressivism that Ben Jealous does.

Now, Ben’s primary is in less than three weeks and the polls show him with a slight lead. This wasn’t always the case. But as the campaign has progressed and he’s gotten his message to more and more people, his standing in the polls has improved.

Now if we can get him the resources he needs to finish strong, I believe that he will win.

But, like me, Ben doesn’t rely on millionaires and billionaires for money. His grassroots campaign is funded by lots of people giving small amounts of money. So, if he is going to see this through, it’s going to take people like you helping him across the finish line.

That is why I am asking you today:

Can you make a $ 3 donation to Ben Jealous’ campaign for Governor? He was there for our campaign when few were, and he can win if we’re with him. Chip in today.

In his campaign, Ben Jealous is talking about health care as a right for every man, woman and child. He is talking about our broken criminal justice system and the absurdity that so many of our young people are unable to afford an education because of the income level of their families.

He is addressing the global crisis of climate change and the need for real, comprehensive immigration reform. He is talking about the belief that a woman should be making the decisions about what happens to her own body.

Ben Jealous is the former President of the NAACP and is someone who has been on the front lines of the struggle for racial justice, economic justice, environmental justice, and more.

He was there for us as a leading surrogate on our presidential campaign when the financial and political establishment were fighting back hardest against us.

Today, I want to be there for him. And if you’ll join me, if we all come together and help Ben today, he is going to win in a few weeks.

Can you make a $ 3 donation to Ben Jealous’ campaign for Governor? Ben is a great progressive. He was there for our campaign when few were. He can win if you’re with him. Chip in today.

One of the ways we can most effectively oppose Donald Trump’s right-wing extremism is with strong progressive leadership at the state and local level.

And there are few progressives stronger than Ben Jealous. Let’s help get him elected.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

I voted in my first primary midterm election today, because of Bernie Sanders.

I’m 30 years old so have definitely had the opportunity to vote in a midterm primary election before, but after phonebanking and campaigning for Bernie in 2016, I’ve been more involved in the political process and political activism in general.

Bernie is an amazing human and my heart fills with joy every time I hear him speak. I still remember the first time I saw a clip of him and how I couldn’t believe there was a politician out there like him and I knew this was going to be yuge.

Just wanted to share because I know there are a lot of people out there like me, who have felt the Bern and the flame hasn’t gone out.

Congratulations to the 7 Our Revolution Endorsed Candidates that won their primary today.

Congratulations to Stacey Abrams, Paul Walker, Maureen Skinner, Lisa Ring, Adrian Wallace, Shelly Hutchinson and Sheikh Rahman. Out of 12 Our Revolution candidates in todays elections 7 won. These are not connected establishment politicians getting corporate funding. These are grassroots everyday people. I would be pleased if we were winning 25% of these races and close to 60% is well beyond my expectations. Our Revolution has had some negative press in the last few days and these wins will likely not be widely shared. The establishment is scared. Bernie is coming for them. We are coming for them. Thanks to anyone who donated, phonebanked, canvassed or just spread the word for these folks.
