You won't find this in any textbook
There are only 45 days left until Election Day, and we need to spend every last one making sure Donald Trump never becomes President of the United States:
I'd like to think I know a thing or two about politics -- I even teach a class in it!
But this year's election isn't following any textbook. In fact, Donald Trump's campaign has thrown the book right out the window.
Somehow, despite his lack of any traditional campaign infrastructure -- no real fundraising, no real field offices, no real ground game, nothing! -- Trump managed to win the primaries and secure the Republican Party's nomination.
The reality TV candidate has gotten this far on free media and showy but substance-free events. It wasn't until recently that he started getting serious about raising money and building out his team in key states (although he's doing it at a rapid pace, and starting to catch up to us.) We've never really seen anything like this, so I can't tell you if his poll numbers and crowds and Twitter followers will translate into votes on Election Day.
But here's what I do know: Hillary Clinton and California Democrats are doing everything that we know it takes to run winning campaigns, with offices and committed organizers and volunteers across the country. And we need to do everything we can to make sure they have the resources they need to keep fighting harder than ever to make sure we can counter any Trump surprises over these next 45 days. Can we count on you to pitch in $3 or more right now?
