One of the mistakes that often happens in Trenton is that people are afraid to think big. They don't want to, or can't, think about how to take on the enormous challenges facing our country. I don't think that's good enough. We have to think big, and to do that I need our people-powered movement to do what most would think is impossible.
We're proving that it is possible to run for Governor backed by people-power, not big corporate interests or Wall Street money. This won't be easy but it's very important. The election of Donald Trump unequivocally proves for people all over the world that we are in a new era, where anyone can run and win.
That's why we're setting a goal that I don't know if we can achieve before Friday's fundraising deadline. But I think it's important that we try.
We want to say on Friday that we have more than 5,000 contributions to our campaign. As of this morning, that means we need 873 contributions in the next 5 days.
It's a lot, but it's not impossible.
There is no stronger message we could send when we are facing a barrage of millions of dollars from a self-funded Wall Street billionaire than responding with 5,000 contributions to our campaign. That's why I'm asking you directly:
Can you rush a $3 contribution to our campaign and help us try to reach our huge goal of 5,000 contributions before Friday's fundraising deadline? Add yours here.
