Fw: Our delegates
On Tue, Jun 28, 2016 at 2:09 PM, BernieSanders.com
Before our nearly 1,900 delegates can vote at the Democratic convention next month, we need to actually get them to Philadelphia.
Here's the thing: our delegates are not wealthy campaign contributors. They're not party insiders or establishment elites. They're working folks, and it's not easy for many of them to fly to Philly and stay in hotels for a week.
We really need to have all of our delegates at the Democratic convention because we expect there could be critical votes for the party platform and electoral process. We'd hate to fall short on these votes because some of our delegates couldn't afford to go to the convention.
You'd be shocked at how expensive it is to attend the Democratic convention. It can cost more than $4,000 per delegate!
Hotels are booked months in advance, and then resold at higher prices. Lobbyists throw all sorts of fancy parties. It's easy for the political establishment to navigate this and know whom to call to find the right way in. That, or they're wealthy enough to pay for themselves.
Our political revolution is not made up of people like that. Our folks need help to get to the convention and stay there.
Byong, you can make sure all our delegates represent Bernie at the Democratic convention. Can you help us before Thursday's midnight FEC fundraising deadline?
