Two numbers.

(Guest post by Ahmed Kokon)

I'd like to thank all of our supporters and contributors. We have now received our 1,000th contributor online and we are very proud of our grassroots support. This is truly a people-powered campaign. I do want to take a quick second to point out two numbers: 43 and 700.

Harrison's average online donation: $43
McMahon's average online donation: $700

When your average donation is $700, you can’t say that you’re running to represent the people. You don't represent the father who has to decide which one of his children receives healthcare, you don't represent the college graduate who wonders how in the world they will pay off their loans, and you don't represent those who are already invisible to the people in power.

It's not enough anymore to just elect a Democrat. It's time to elect Democrats with democratic principles and democratic values.

Remember those two numbers: 43 & 700.

Now ask yourself, which number represents you?
