From Bernie Sanders
I just walked off the debate stage and wanted to thank you. This is the first time I’ve ever participated in a nationally televised debate, and it meant a lot to know that there were so many people cheering me on at thousands of debate watch parties and in their homes.
But this campaign isn’t about Bernie Sanders. It’s not a baseball game or a soap opera, and it shouldn’t be about anyone’s emails. What this campaign is about is the grotesque levels of income inequality in this country and whether we can mobilize our people to take back our democracy from a handful of billionaires. But it will take everyone coming together if that’s going to happen.
So I want to ask you directly:
This country faces more serious problems today than at any time in modern history, and establishment politics will not successfully resolve them. Tonight we proved that not only can we win an election, but we can ensure no one who works full-time will have to live in poverty, that we can provide education as a right, and that we can guarantee health care for all Americans.
Thank you for your support.
