The Democratic presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren, promised on Monday to hold no political fundraiser with wealthy donors while she showed up at the White House, saying that she would rather depend on small contributions to finance his campaign.
"That means no fancy receptions or big fundraisers with people who can make the big checks," Warren wrote in a post titled "The President's Best Money Can not Buy" on Monday at Medium.
Warren, the Massachusetts senator who officially launched her campaign earlier this month, has consistently criticized corporations and wealthy donors, saying they have too much power over US politics and elections.

"We have a problem in this country: money has too much influence on our political leaders," Warren wrote. "I've already said that I would conduct my campaign differently – no money from Washington lobbyists, no PAC money, no hearing from billionaires to handle a great PAC for me. , and no black money groups dedicated to supporting my campaign. "
Warren said that when she will thank people for donating to her campaign, it will not be "based on the size" of their gift. She also said she would count on modest contributions, basic donations and volunteers.
"My presidential primary campaign will be conducted on the principle of equal access for all who join," Warren said.
She added, "I'm thankful for every gift we receive – and we need it all! But what matters most is that all those who support my campaign are treated on an equal footing, regardless of the amount of their financial means. "

The vow is the first of its kind among the Democratic nominees of 2020. Warren acknowledged that the ever-growing Democratic primary realm would probably surpass it because of its decision.
But Warren is not the only candidate to focus on fundraising from a grassroots campaign.
