Received this e-mail today form U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s (D. NM) gubernatorial campaign:
There are currently only two Democratic woman governors in the entire country. Two.
We have a real chance to add Michelle Lujan Grisham to their ranks this year by making sure she wins her critical race in New Mexico, but it’s not going to be easy.
Recent polls are showing Michelle locked in a dead heat against a Tea Party extremist with President Trump’s “full support,” an “A” rating from the NRA and a 0% score from Planned Parenthood. Her opponent has over $600,000 more in his campaign war chest and has the backing of special-interest groups like the Koch network behind him.
There’s no way Michelle can win this race on her own, so we need to throw our urgent support behind her so she can take on her right-wing opponent. Her team needs to raise $15,243 before midnight, so I’m asking you to give now to help her win this crucial race:
Michelle is the voice we need in office. She's spent her long career fighting for working families, a woman’s right to choose and access to quality, affordable health care. These fights are more important than ever, so we need to do everything we can to help her win.
We can take on the wealthy right-wing special interests, but only if we all step up to do our part. That’s why I’m counting on you to donate right now to help elect Michelle in November.
