Received this e-mail today from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in support of Ammar Campa-Najjar’s (D. CA-50) campaign:
Why is bold progressive congressional challenger Ammar Campa-Najjar TIED in a district with a recent “solid Republican” rating?
First, he ran a grassroots campaign to defeat uninspiring corporate Dems in a primary. Then, his opponent got indicted on dozens of charges of mis-using campaign funds.
Now, the Huffington Post reports that Mr. Family Values, Republican incumbent Duncan Hunter (CA-50), “allegedly spent campaign cash on affairs with five separate individuals, according to prosecutors who reportedly claim to have photographic evidence.”
Duncan Hunter was one of the first members of Congress to support Trump in 2016. Can you chip in $3.60 to Ammar's campaign to help him win a HUGE UPSET in this “Solid Republican” district? (The 60 cents is for the 60-counts against Hunter.)
Ammar’s running on Medicare For All, a $15 minimum wage, women’s right to choose, comprehensive immigration reform, and getting big money out of politics.
FiveThirtyEight recently said about this year's primaries, “The most successful progressive group was the PCCC.” We're proud to have endorsed Ammar — even when this race looked like a long-shot.
Now, his race isn't a long shot! Chip in $3.60 to help bold progressive Ammar Campa-Najjar win an upset and help take back Congress!
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
