Think about that for a minute.
One million people like you own a stake in a grassroots movement that is not just competing, but thriving, in a political process that's been dominated by special interests for far too long.
You have given your time, energy, and passion to bring about change.
And it's working.
I cannot thank you enough for all you've done, but there are still millions of Americans who remain on the outside of the political process. They are skeptical of politicians and disillusioned by the partisan gridlock of Washington, D.C.
Right now, we have an opportunity to reach out to those people and show them that the change we need is possible.
That's why, on this historic day, we are committing ourselves to a new goal: calling one million people before the March 4th primaries.
Tuesday's contests in Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Vermont could be decisive in this race.
Help mark today's historic achievement by picking up the phone, reaching out to potential supporters, and inviting them to join our movement for change:
No other campaign has ever reached one million donors while still in a competitive primary, and I am grateful for your generosity.
This is an important milestone, not just for our campaign, but also for our party. This level of support will be invaluable as we head toward a general election in which grassroots participation will be more important than ever.
The next six days could decide whether we get that chance. It will take a massive effort across the country to Get Out The Vote on Tuesday, March 4th.
That means reaching out, making phone calls, and building this movement one person at a time.
