It’s no secret that the 2020 presidential election is one of extreme importance for the Democratic party, as they realize allowing Donald Trump to occupy the Oval Office for 8 total years will shape America in a way that will take decades to reverse, if ever.
We are at a pivotal moment in our democracy, which Democrats realize and are doing their best to get all hands on deck to win the presidential election next year, which explains the sense of panic that has spilled over into more Democratic candidates announcing their presidential run than I can personally remember in recent history. As of the writing of this article there are 23 Democrats currently running, but that numbers fluctuates quite often.
It’s tough to determine who will be the last person standing to take the stage against Donald Trump in the live debates, but the the clear front runner at this point is Joe Biden, who sent out an email with a message that is important for Americans to grasp, entitled “A personal request”.
Biden realizes that this next election cycle is bigger than just him. In fact, he writes as much, saying that restoring values, rebuilding our middle class, and unifying our nation is “bigger than just me”.
Joe Biden writes:
“Here’s how I see it: We are locked in a battle for the soul of this nation. If we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.
I’m running for president to restore our values, rebuild our middle class, and unify this nation.
But these ideas are bigger than just me. No matter who our nominee is, we’re all relying on a strong Democratic Party to win the White House and seats nationwide next year. The only way we’re going to do that is with a Democratic Party capable of investing in the infrastructure to spread our message, mobilize voters, and get out the vote.
Our strength depends on people like you. That’s exactly why the DNC’s Democratic Unity Fund is so important. So, I have to ask:
Will you stand with Democrats by making a $3 contribution that will be split between my campaign and the DNC’s Democratic Unity Fund today?
There is no limit to what Democrats can accomplish — but only if we win up and down the ticket in 2020. We’re better positioned than any nation in the world to own the 21st century. The sky is the limit. I’m more optimistic now than I was as a 29-year-old kid — I truly believe our best days still lie ahead. But we must come together as a party.
Your donation today sends a strong message that you’re ready to give every Democrat the resources to win.
Donald Trump’s campaign has already raised over $150 million for his reelection — so it’s all hands on deck. Beating him and the RNC is going to take a lot of hard work, so I am counting on you to support the Democratic Unity Fund today.
Thanks for your help,
While Joe’s email may come off as just another part of a campaign seeking money to help win the election, make no mistake, it’s much bigger than that. Joe Biden’s email is not raising money for his campaign specifically, but rather for the Democratic party as a whole.
Biden clearly has one goal – defeat Donald Trump in 2020. If that’s with himself on the Democratic ticket, great. If not, that’s OK too, as long as Donald J. Trump no longer occupies the Oval Office.
