Bernie Sanders First to Reach 1 Million Donors: Campaign Update
(Bloomberg) -- Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign has 1 million individual donors, making him the first Democrat to reach the milestone in this cycle, his campaign said Thursday."Our strength is in numbers, and that is why Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who is able to say his campaign will rely only on grassroots funding in both the primary and against Donald Trump," Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement. "Like all campaigns we are beholden to our donors, and we're proud to stand with 1 million working people." Sanders' campaign relied on small-dollar donors in 2016. In the 2020 race, other Democrats like Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts also have sworn off large-dollar fundraisers in the Democratic primary. Many donors have given more than once, and the Sanders campaign said that it had received 1 million contributions in April; Warren achieved that milestone in July.Teaching is the most common occupation of Sanders' donors and the top employers are Starbucks, Walmart and Amazon, according to the campaign.Biden Picks Up Three Congressional Endorsements (3:12 p.m.)Joe Biden picked up three more endorsements from House members as his campaign seeks to cast him as an increasingly inevitable choice, especially for nonwhite voters.Two members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri and G.K.

The plan is similar to one proposed by Republican senator Pat Toomey and Democratic senator Joe Manchin, which has previously failed in the Senate."We are going to wait and see what the final one is," Manchin said. "Republicans are still engaged in talking and that is very hopeful for me."President Trump has not yet personally endorsed any new gun-control plan, but is expected to announce which measures he supports to combat gun violence soon. Democrats have upped the pressure on the White House to include the universal-background-check bill passed by the House in any proposal he endorses."This morning, we made it clear to the president that any proposal he endorses that does not include the House-passed universal background checks legislation will not get the job done, as dangerous loopholes will still exist and people who shouldn't have guns will still
