DNC's email campaign gave several candidates top billing

Andrew Prokop is a senior politics correspondent at Vox, covering the White House, elections, and political scandals and investigations. He’s worked at Vox since the site’s launch in 2014, and before that, he worked as a research assistant at the New Yorker’s Washington, DC, bureau.

Update: The DNC sent out a fundraising email that appeared to give Hillary Clinton far more emphasis than the other presidential candidates, setting off jokes on Twitter and here on Vox. After publication, however, we found that there are additional versions of it that offer other candidates top billing. We regret jumping to incorrect conclusions about the DNC's email campaign. Here are what the other versions of the email look like:

DNC email 3

The DNC has faced criticism for limiting the number of Democratic presidential debates this cycle to six — far less than in recent competitive cycles, and half the number that Republicans are planning. Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley's campaigns have protested this decision, which an O'Malley strategist called "clearly geared toward limiting a debate on the issues and instead facilitating a coronation." For this particular email, though, Sanders and O'Malley appear to have been treated fairly.
