Former Alaskan Senator Gravel achieves donor threshold for July primary debates

Presidential candidate Mike Gravel, former Alaskan Democratic senator renowned for reading the Pentagon Papers into public record, announced Friday that his campaign has achieved the goal of 65,000 individual donors for the July primary debates. Gravel is considered a unique candidate for running without the goal of being elected, but for pushing the public discourse to the left at the debates.

Unlikely he will be in the debates as from his own wikipedia page: But he still may not be able to participate. With 20 other candidates, the maximum number allowed to participate, having already met at least the polling criterion, which takes priority over the donor criterion, Gravel will not be invited unless at least one other candidate who has qualified drops out before the debate, or he meets the polling criterion (at least 1% support in at least three polls).
