Maybe you missed it but in three days Sen. Bernie Sanders has attracted over 70,000 people to rallies in Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles. He also had an online rally that saw over 100,000 participants at over 3,500 locations around the country.
What is it about Sen. Sanders that you don’t like? His willingness to talk truth to power? His ability to motivate hundreds of thousands of supporters this early in the race? His common sense liberal/socialist agenda?
Unlike the other presidential candidates, Sanders stated he will not pursue funding through a Super PAC, instead focusing on small individual donations. Sanders’ presidential campaign raised $1.5 million within 24 hours of his official announcement. After four days, Sanders’ campaign had raised $3 million from small donors, with an average of $43 per donation.
