No corporate PAC money

When I started this campaign, I decided not to accept any corporate PAC money. I made a promise to you that I’d never put special interests and big corporations ahead of the American people. We need to get back to the business of governing and representing the American people and that starts by getting big money out of politics.

We’ve been busy. I’ve been traveling a lot — going everywhere and talking to everyone.

Ohio, South Carolina, Utah, New Hampshire, Iowa, Maryland and on and on…

I’m talking about finding common ground and about bringing respect, honesty and civility back to Washington. I’m talking about my plan to establish universal healthcare, free universal pre-k, reform the criminal justice system, implement a carbon tax, and what we need to do to prepare for the future. Hundreds of events and thousands of miles later, I can say with confidence that I’m now a better candidate for it.

I just got back from a week-long trip to Iowa during which I wrapped up my 99-county tour — the first Democratic candidate to do that since 2007. But I’m not only going to blue counties, I’m going to red counties and districts that have been forgotten by politicians. Places where sadly, Democrats have stopped showing up. I’m sending a clear message to all Americans that their voice matters. It doesn’t matter if you live in Columbia, South Carolina or Corning, Iowa, your zip code shouldn’t determine whether your voice is heard.

I love being out on the road and meeting with folks in small-town coffee shops and diners and talking about real issues and real solutions.

My campaign is focused on the issues of the future, but we’re also talking to voters the good old fashioned way — one coffee shop, one diner, and one voter at a time. That’s how we beat Trump, that’s how Democrats start winning again and that’s how we bring progress back to politics.
