Landslide victories in Alaska, Washington and Hawaii

Together with a few million people, I get a message, sometimes two messages, from Bernie Sanders every day. Here is the message to tell about the landslide victories in three primary states - Alaska, Washington and Hawaii.

Sisters and Brothers -
We are on a path towards victory, and we took three more steps down that pathlast night with three YUGE wins in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington.
We won each of those states with more than 68 percent of the vote, same as we did last week in Idaho, Utah, and Democrats Abroad. We are significantly shrinking Hillary Clinton's lead, and we're going to keep it up.
You are the momentum for our campaign. When you vote, caucus, volunteer, or make a contribution, you are building our momentum. Every ballot, every phone call or door knocked, and every dollar moves us forward.
We are only doing so well because millions of people want us to do well. No billionaires, no super PACs. Just you, and the rest of our political revolution.
When working people and young people, when people who have given up on the political process get involved, that's how we win. They demand a government that represents them and not the 1 percent of our country. And if enough of us come together, they'll get it.
Right now we have the momentum. Momentum is having 14,000 people out in a rally in Salt Lake City about a week ago and 15,000 in Seattle on Mondaynight.
Momentum is in election after election, winning an overwhelming percentage of young people who are participating in the democratic process.
Momentum is having rallies and town meetings that have brought out more than one million people over the course of this campaign.
What we are seeing is that the people of this country want to make it a better country. They are prepared to stand up and fight and take on the major crises that we face. They want an economy that works for all of us, not just wealthy campaign contributors. They want the United States of America to join every other major country and guarantee health care to all people as a right.
Conservative, progressive, Republican, or Democrat — they are all embarrassed by a corrupt campaign finance system that allows billionaires to buy elections.
And so they are fighting back, with almost 6 million contributions from nearly 2 million people, at an average of about $27 apiece.
I'm glad you are a part of this with me. Thank you.
In solidarity,
Bernie Sanders
