Update on Mayor Pete's road to 65,000 donors

(copied and pasted from an email I received from him)

Hi there,

Earlier this week, we announced some fundraising statistics: In the 24 hours immediately following the CNN Town Hall, we raised $600,000 from over 22,200 donations.

Here's what's more exciting: We are 85% of the way to the 65,000-donor metric required to be invited to the DNC debate. As of this morning, 55,359 people across the country have invested in this bold vision for our future.

Donor Update

The national exposure generated by the CNN Town Hall certainly helped boost our numbers over the last 72 hours, but most of our donors actually invested before that. Through your support, the work of our Grassroots Fundraising Team, and small-dollar donors in every state across the country (and PR and DC, too), we're on a solid path to being invited to the debate stage.

We're not there yet, though, and we need your participation to make it to 65,000. Would you please consider making a $3 donation today?

If you did quick math above, you calculated that our average donation in that 24-hour period was $27.03. Campaigns always talk a lot about that metric -- the "average dollar donation," because it is supposed to prove grassroots support.

We're committed to being honest and transparent with our data -- especially with you, our earliest supporters. We look at other metrics, like the percentage of our total amount raised brought in through donations under $200. (Right now, that number is 65%.)

We'll continue to crunch the numbers on our end, particularly as we approach the end of the month and close the books on this fiscal quarter. We can't wait to share the full story of the data with you.

If you can, please make a $3 donation today, and be included in that story:

Thanks again,

Pete for America

2. I just really want this guy on the debate stage

 

His age (I'm less than 2 years older than him) brings different experiences and issues to the stage. With a lot of the Democratic primary electorate being millennials and Gen Z, the candidates need to know how to speak to their generations. Win or not, we need his voice in the debate.

7. I would think he'd be on the debate stage anyway. I expect him to top 1% in polls.
