We need a commander-in-chief who will lead with our values and restore America's standing in the world. That means working closely with our allies again, rebuilding our diplomatic corps, and supporting our troops—both at home and abroad.

Today is the deadline for the DNC's December debate qualifying threshold—and while I may not be on the debate stage next Thursday, thanks to the outpouring of support over the past few weeks, we know there’s a path to victory, and we no longer need the debate stage to get there.

The voters deserve to decide who the Democratic nominee should be, and I know that together, we can win this race. Next week, I’ll be on the road hearing directly from and sharing my vision with the people who will determine the outcome of this race—the way it should be.

I’ll be doing what we’ve done for the last ten months of this campaign and throughout my time in public service—meeting people where they are, in living rooms and church basements, at coffee shops and in diners, and discussing how to tackle the most pressing challenges we face.

My entire career I've brought people together to take on our toughest challenges. I beat slumlords taking advantage of low-income families, ushered in Newark’s greatest economic growth in a generation, and overcame Washington's broken politics to pass criminal justice reform.

We need a leader in the Oval Office who’s able to unite our deeply divided nation and begin the healing our country so desperately needs. It’s time for a president who brings us together as one nation—not one who drives us apart with hate and fear.

I’m not sticking around for vanity or ego—I’m in this to win it because I believe I’m the best candidate to beat Donald Trump and lead this country to higher ground.

Building a campaign to win begins with the Iowa caucuses on February 3rd. And I can’t do this alone. I’m asking for your help—please chip in to make sure we have the ground game we need to compete:

As president, I will fight to ensure that every child in America has the opportunity to receive a great public education. Here's my new plan to make it happen:

The dignity of work must always be promoted and protected. I support @UNITEHERE11  in their fight for fair wages and benefits. No Democratic candidate should cross the picket line.


The president is weak. And wrong. White supremacy is not a mental illness, and guns are a tool that white supremacists use to fulfill their hate.

These are the 4 documents marked committee confidential that I brought up in my questioning of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last night -->

The Trump administration posted an unsearchable pdf of the Mueller report so it would be harder for you to read. We made it easier. Here’s a searchable version:

What you do matters. What you say matters. No matter how big the fight Or inevitable the conclusion seems Stand up. Speak up. Wrong, temporarily victorious Is never greater than Right, forever vigilant.

I’m running for president. Join me on this journey.

The fact that Kavanaugh believes that a President should not be subject to civil litigation or criminal investigation while in office means that Trump just nominated a justice who has already reached conclusions on these serious questions. That should raise enormous red flags.

Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately.
