(UPDATE Feb 4, 2015: After 2 weeks, Warren leads with $150K in pledges, Clinton in 2nd with just over $100K, and Bernie Sanders close behind in 3rd, with just over $80K!)
Just launched: “DemStarter.com.” Check it out:
DemStarter is a project of Left Action, with two goals: 1) Show potential Democratic candidates how much support they would have if they decided to run (and help convince them to take the plunge); 2) Give the eventual Democratic nominee a head start by taking pledges that can quickly be turned into donations once the campaign begins.
Here’s how it works:
- Visit the DemStarter home page
- Click on the potential candidate or candidates you’d like to see run, and fill in the amount you’d pledge to donate if they decide to run. You are not making a payment now, just a pledge.
- If the potential candidate announces they are running, we will let you know where you can go to fulfill your pledge, and make a donation.
So if you have a candidate you’d like to see run, show them your support, and make it easier for them to do it!
