Despite Clinton’s pledges to rebuild state parties, Politico found that less than 1 percent of the $61 million raised by the Victory Fund has stayed in the state parties’ coffers.

[This] has sparked concerns among campaign finance watchdogs [who] see it as a circumvention of campaign contribution limits by a national party apparatus intent on doing whatever it takes to help Clinton defeat Sanders during the party’s primary
In essence, Hillary Clinton is skirting already lax limitations on the corruption of our democracy that was unleashed by the right wing #SCOTUS rulings of #CitizensUnited and #McCutcheon and is openly laundering money through the DNC back into her campaign. How can someone who does this to win the primary against a candidate that is relying on small donors and doesn't even have a #SuperPAC be expected to enact real #CampaignFinanceReform ?

AS a down ballot Democrat (running for the MN State Senate http://ShawnOlson.org), I can assure you I have not received one nickel of money from Clinton's millionaire donors, but Bernie's grassroots supporters have contributed over $2,000 to my campaign (thanks everyone!).
But even beyond the money that comes in, the best thing that can happen for down ballot Democrats is a candidate with a broad appeal like Bernie that also has high favorability ratings. Clinton would be an anchor chained to my ankle, Bernie a life raft.

With all due respect to Hillary supporters, I cannot enthusiastically support her bid at this time, and will be #WaitingForBernie to announce (likely within a couple weeks).
Sanders is the only real progressive in the race. Sanders understands that the pillaging of working Americans by corporate demons and the ruling elites is the worst it has ever been in this country, and that it takes truly bold reforms to fight back against this onslaught. Bernie Sanders has the clarity of our situation, the strength of conviction to fix our problems, and the solutions we need.
Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for President of the United States of America a week ago. If she ends up getting the parties endorsement, I will support her 100% since every single Republican who has or will potentially declare is a regressive monster who will do horrific damage to America. But until that time I support Sanders.
Hillary is pro-choice, pro-LGBT marriage equality, pro-equal pay for women, pro-education, pro-science, pro-green energy, pro-infrastructure repair, pro-immigration reform, pro-voting rights, pro-civil rights, pro-conservation, etc. However she also has uncomfortably close ties to Wall Street, corporate tyrants, and the bloated military-industrial complex. Even though conservatives to the right of Hitler will name call Hillary a "soicalst!!" like they did with Obama, the truth is that Hillary is at best a centrist, probably even leaning center-right when everything is accounted for.
However, I will be waiting for Bernie Sanders to announce his candidacy for POTUS, and will give him my full support. Bernie Sanders is a true progressive and a strong leader. He speaks truth to power and deserves our unwavering support.

We're going to grab a BIG slice of the final pie wedge (California and New Jersey), so we just have to stay within striking range until then. If Bernie wins California with 66% of the vote his net gain is 158, with 75% its 238 of the 475 total. For the next 24 hours, devote yourself to phone banking, door knocking, and helping Bernie do well in #Pennsylvania #RhodeIsland #Connecticut #Delaware and #Maryland http://go.berniesanders.com/page/s/the-revolution-is-calling
