My plans for 2020:

To me, America has always been about giving everyone a chance, no matter which side of the railroad tracks they grow up on.

After all, that's my family's story. But even though I live in the same blue collar neighborhood where I grew up, my neighbors don't have the same chances I had—not because they're different but because America's different.

My whole life I've tried to make the biggest contributions I can to give others the same chances I've had. I've been in some big battles over the years, but this is the biggest one yet.

Over the last year, I've talked to people all across America about their hopes and concerns, and it's just reinforced my conviction that we are in a battle for the soul of our nation. We need bold, progressive solutions to the crises created by the privileged and powerful, who have rigged our economy and our politics.

We have to win this fight. I've been thinking hard about how I can make the biggest impact. And since you've been a supporter and ally, I want you to be among the first to know about my plans for 2020.

I want you on this journey with me. We can't win for America without all of us, together, giving what we can to this effort.
