You achieved something historic. Now we have to do it again.
Thank you for your love, faith & support. Even if we won this battle, the war would go on. Our setback was unprecedented -- my vote total would have been a majority in all but two non-presidential Democratic primary elections since 1998!
We are going to carry on. I need you to stick with me and step up to do even more.
We showed this can be done without money, but now you must support our cause financially. We showed sweat equity matters most, but we need you to double your volunteer efforts. We showed that voters respond when they have a choice, and I need you to put your name on the ballot with mine.
You are my team. I love you for that. I will not quit because this is not finished, and we are fighting for our lives.
Make your greatest commitment and never give up. A progressive Democratic majority is emerging. From cleaning up corruption, inequality and unfairness in our political and economic systems to universal health care, free public education and shared prosperity, our agenda means justice for people and ultimately, we shall succeed. We need you. Please do all you can.
