Bernie Sanders may be refusing money from wealthy contributors by means of a Super PAC, but the campaign has started what it calls a ‘Super Pack’.
Announced via email to supporters yesterday, the Super Pack is designed to encourage monthly small donations, rather than big sums of money from corporate backers.
The campaign says that by receiving monthly donations, it will be able to have a stable and predictable source of revenue.
The email concludes by reminding supporters that while the campaign does not have ‘the billionaire class or shadowy corporations’, it has you.
In the last report filed to the Federal Electoral Commission, the campaign had raised $15m from 250,000 individual contributors. That number is expected to be much larger when the campaign files its next report.
