Mike’s Just Getting Started

In 2016, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in three debates.
In 2012, Mitt Romney famously beat President Obama handily in their first debate.
What do those moments have in common? Debate performances did nothing to change the outcome of the election.
In 2020, you know you’re a winner when you draw attacks from every single candidate on the stage. You know you’re a winner when instead of counting you out, members of Congress from New York, California, and New Jersey throw their support behind your campaign.
Last night, Mike stepped onto the debate stage for the first time in 10 years. He was the center of attention, fielded attacks from every candidate, all the while being the only person on stage to fearlessly and consistently share his message that he is the best candidate to beat Donald Trump and unify the American people in November.
Everyone came to destroy Mike last night and get under his skin - and it didn’t happen. Instead, Mike delivered the line of the night to Senator Sanders: “What a wonderful country we have. The best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses.”
As Mike rises in the polls and his presence across the country grows, other candidates are getting viscous - but the divisive energy we see on social media and on stage won’t propel Democrats into the White House.
Last night was a warm up. Mike has the vision, comprehensive platform, and national investment to take the fight to Donald Trump.
That’s how Mike wins. That’s how Democrats win.
