DNC and Barack Obama Announce the “Democratic Unity Fund” ahead of a Heated Democratic Primary
By Sentinel News Wire
Published May 28, 2019

As the crowded group of Democratic candidates bid for the  presidential nomination, the party is preparing for unity. With the support of President Barack Obama who has not endorsed a candidate at this time, the DNC has launched the Democratic Unity Fund.

The focus on Democratic unity follows the drama in the 2016 Democratic primary, when supporters of  Sen. Bernie Sanders accused the DNC of being biased in favor of Hillary Clinton winning the nomination.

More than 20 Democrats are seeking the party’s nomination for president in 2020.


Obama write in a letter to supporters:

“The Democratic Unity Fund is a promise that no matter who earns our nomination, he or she will have a strong, united, and well-prepared DNC ready to lift them to victory. Because winning in 2020 won’t happen on its own.”
