I can’t believe how much this election has changed, and it’s been crazy.
Bernie Sanders is winning.
But there are still so many things I want to say to you, especially as you head into the next few weeks and weeks of the election.
I know there’s been a lot of talk about Donald Trump and how he’s not a real person.
But we have to stop pretending that everything is as it seems.
He has every right to be angry, and you can be too.
He’s running against people who have no idea what they’re talking about.
I’ve had the chance to see him for my first two days in office, and he’s clearly the most dangerous person in the country.
He is not just a bad guy, he is a bad leader.
He doesn’t respect the Constitution, he doesn’t believe in our democracy.
I am the least popular president in American history.
I would not have been able to accomplish the job of president if it wasn’t for you, and your efforts.
I have made it my mission to get back to the issues that matter most to you: economic opportunity, fighting climate change, protecting civil rights, protecting health care, protecting seniors, making sure that we protect our border, fighting for veterans and first responders, making college affordable and safe, making voting and campaign finance more accessible, fighting corporate and financial power, and making sure all Americans have access to affordable health care.
I will not allow anyone to put politics before people and make decisions for them based on who they are or what they believe.
And I will fight against efforts to weaken the Voting Rights Act and to change our election laws to limit our ability to participate in the democratic process.
I won’t let any politician get away with anything that could jeopardize the integrity of our elections.
I refuse to let anyone use voter suppression or voter fraud to make it harder for people to vote.
If you are concerned about the impact of a vote fraud investigation, or a voter suppression lawsuit, or voting rights violations, I urge you to contact the Secretary of State, the State Board of Elections, and the attorneys general of your state.
The election is being held in my name, and I’m committed to ensuring the integrity and fairness of our electoral process.
And as president, I will ensure that every vote counts.
I believe that we should all be able to vote as Americans and not as just members of a political party.
I also believe that the United States of America is a nation of laws.
I support an inclusive, democratic election process that works for everyone.
If we are going to protect the integrity, the truth, and freedom of our democracy, we must also protect the rights of all Americans.
I look forward to working with you to make sure that this campaign is an inclusive one, and we all can vote.
I appreciate the time you have taken to do this.
If elected President, I would work with you on a variety of issues to help keep the country moving forward.
As President, you can expect me to: Protect the rights and protections of our citizens to keep us safe from terrorism, and to protect our borders.
Support the election process and make sure all eligible voters get to the polls.
Support our law enforcement officers to enforce the laws of our country and ensure our communities are safe.
Make sure that our nation’s electoral process is transparent and free from influence by special interests or political entities.
Protect the voting rights of our voters, and ensure that voting is not restricted to just those who live in your state or who have been notified of your campaign or your campaign signs.
Support and protect voting rights for people who are LGBT and who identify as a woman, Latino, Asian American, or any other marginalized group.
Expand our work to include the elderly, and combat discrimination against people with disabilities, including our veterans.
Make it easier for people with health insurance to vote, and improve access to quality early voting.
Support expanding access to the health care and retirement benefits that Americans depend on.
And make sure we have the best election security we can have.
We are not only fighting to make our democracy a better place, but also to ensure that the next president will be able, in his or her first 100 days, to help build a stronger, more equal and more just country.
This election is a pivotal one.
I hope that by the time it’s over, that you will be fully engaged with the campaign that I’m running for president.
I can not wait to see you on the campaign trail.
Sincerely, Bernie Sanders ____________________________________________________________________ ____ _____
