Sanders close to beating another Obama milestone

As the final FEC deadline for 2015 looms closer, Bernie Sanders is close to beating another fundraising milestone set by President Obama in 2008.

In an email to supporters sent Thursday evening, the campaign says that nearly one million individuals have donated so far, and they are aiming to reach that milestone before the final FEC filing deadline tonight.

In 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama didn’t reach the one million donor milestone until well after the Iowa caucuses, the email says.

“We are on the verge of another unprecedented achievement — one that would be impossible to ignore.”

If you are yet to contribute to Bernie 2016, help make history by making a donation of just $3.
