Sisters and Brothers -
Last night, Secretary Clinton said she was ready for this primary to be over, and if you listen to some of our friends in the political establishment and corporate media, it sounds like they're ready for the same.
Well, let me remind you of how many times they've told us our path was too difficult: in Iowa, they said it when we were down almost 50 points. And again when we were down 44 in New Hampshire, 28 in Colorado, and double digits in Minnesota.
If we continue to stand together and fight, what we are going to do in this next week is what we've done throughout this entire campaign: we are going to share our message with the American people, and we are going to shock the establishment. That is why I have to ask you directly:
I want you to imagine a world eight years from now where nobody who works 40 hours a week lives in poverty, health care is a right for all Americans, kids of all backgrounds can go to college without crushing debt, there is no bank too big to fail, no banker too powerful to jail, and we've reclaimed our democracy from the billionaire class.
That is what our campaign is about, and why it is so important we keep fighting. Because if we do, we are going to win. That is why your contribution before the polls close tonight is so important.
Real change comes about when large numbers of ordinary Americans speak, vote and get involved in the democratic process. If we stand together, we win. If we are divided, the big-money interests win.
