Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D. OR) in support of U.S. Senator Jon Tester’s (D. MT) re-election campaign:
Republicans are desperate to defeat my friend, Montana's Senator Jon Tester. Why? Because Jon sides with working people over corporations, and isn't afraid to stand up to Donald Trump.
That's why I respect and admire Jon: his integrity, his commitment and his determination to fight for all Americans.
It's crucial we stand with Jon now, as he faces a massive, coordinated effort to take him down. Please chip in $3 now to give Jon the resources to fight back.
Out of state billionaires and GOP-aligned Super PACs have been spending millions of dollars on attack ads.
Donald Trump has made disparaging Jon a priority – he held yet another panicked rally in Montana to attack Jon's integrity and record.
Jon's hand-picked-by-the-Koch-brothers opponent has been coordinating his campaign efforts with the NRA's dark money PAC, in what seems like a clear violation of federal law.
Bottom line: Jon Tester will always fight for working people – not billionaires, not special interests, not corporate greed. That's why the special interests will go to any length to tear him down.
