Sanders Campaign Calls on Biden—and All 2020 Democrats—to Reject Any Help From Shadowy Super PACs
Reporting on Thursday morning by CNN that allies of Joe Biden’s bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination are pushing for the creation of a new super PAC to promote his candidacy prompted a cutting response from the Bernie Sanders campaign, which is funded almost entirely by small-dollar donors.
“Let’s be clear,” Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir said in a statement Thursday, “super PACs exist for one reason and one reason only: to help billionaires and corporations bankroll a presidential campaign with unlimited amounts of money, in exchange for favors.”
Shakir called for Biden and all the Democrats in the primary to reject super PACs.
“Every Democratic candidate should forcefully reject any help from super PACs,” said Shakir, “and they should tell their supporters and surrogates to stop engaging with super PACs that aim to buy elections and undermine our democracy.”
As numbers from the third quarter show, Biden has struggled to raise money in recent months and has less than $9 million cash on hand—an amount dwarfed by Sanders’ $33.7 million warchest. That deficit, reports CNN, has some of the former vice president’s supporters looking to start a super PAC to prop up the campaign, despite Biden’s pledge not to work with such a committee.
“Biden allies are pushing for a super PAC so that a few millionaires and billionaires can have MORE influence in the Democratic primary,” tweeted journalist Krystal Ball.
According to CNN, 38% of Biden’s support comes from maxed out donors who have already hit the legal limit on donations to help the former vice president’s campaign.
