BREAKING Bernie news!!!! (UPDATED $ INFO)

Last edited Thu Oct 1, 2015, 01:38 PM - Edit history (3)


NEW financial info and more here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/128057206

News is below the Thermometer. Thermometers auto-update every few minutes with your latest total.

Donate to DU for Bernie at Act Blue here: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/duforbernie





30 days ago DU for Bernie was averaging $3,000 a month on $12,000. What I thought was an out of reach goal for this month was $20,000. I set that amount about a week ago. We had that Monday night.

Bernie is now OVER $21,000 before the midnight deadline for the FEC!

I can't tell you how shocked I am that DU for Bernie has raised $9,000 in a months time!

$21,113 / 640 = $32.9875 per donation. That is more than $10 over Bernie's national donation average.

Our new monthly average is $4,200 a month!

It's time I shared a secret with you. Back in June when I made the trip to see Bernie, marym625 made a simulated check (8.5x11) and emailed it to me. It was for $4,000 to Bernie from the DU Bernie Group drawn on Act Blue. Because Bernie didn't know about it in advance, it was decided not to surprise him in front of the public. He wasn't handed the check until he got in the car by his manager. The photo below is about the time he was learning about the check!

Bernie and his campaign check in on the DU from time to time. Wait till Bernie learns about this.

Feel the Bern!

Who am I to believe? Oh wait, Hillary is planning a spontaneous announcement on that, after her polling results are in.

I'm still sending extra to Bernie, and also through the DU group. The more the merrier as far as Bernie is concerned!

In this subthread, "the more the merrier." Merrily said, "I like merrier." You said, "I was thinking of you, dear merrily." So, I said what I said.

Evidently, only funny in my mind. But that's okay

Might help to know merrily and I have been calling each other marrily.

Just hope you have a great day and have many laughs throughout

I just added another $25. I wish I could give more, but I'm poor and my cats are costing me a fortune in vet bills this year. This time, because of your reminder, I went through DU. Last time it was just through Act Blue.

I'll try to make sure to use DU from now on.

48. My 9-year-old made a contribution--true story

Last week, when he was walking into the local Bernie office with his mom, he found a quarter on the sidewalk. When he went inside, he told them that he wanted to donate it to the campaign. So they took it, put it in an envelope, and I'm pretty sure they gave him a receipt.... needless to say, he's pretty popular around the office!

...and i'll stop bragging about my kid now!
