Received this e-mail today from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in support of Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
11 Republican male senators, lit on fire by Lindsey Graham and fanned by Ted Cruz, disrespected women this week and told millions of women who have been sexually assaulted that what happened to them absolutely does not matter — boys will be boys and politics will always come first.
It’s time for the vile hatred of Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz to be tossed out of the Senate forever.
We can hold Ted Cruz accountable by making sure Beto O‘Rourke has the resources to defeat him in November — he set an ambitious fundraising goal that ends at midnight tomorrow.
And big news: We’ve worked with our friends at ActBlue to set up a new “Lindsey Graham Accountability Project (Super PAC 2020)” that we will use to plummet Graham’s poll numbers in South Carolina and defeat his bid for re-election next cycle.
Click here to donate to help Beto O‘Rourke defeat Ted Cruz in 2018 and to support the new fund to defeat Lindsey Graham in 2020. Then, please forward this to others who you know share our outrage in this moment.
If we can raise a LOT of money this weekend to defeat Lindsey Graham, it will make big headlines — and serve as a form of pressure on all Republican Senators next week as they consider what to do on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for Supreme Court.
Led by Graham and Cruz making some of the most cynical and dishonest speeches ever made in the Senate, one Republican after another made clear that they didn’t care whether Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Led by Graham and Cruz, Republican senators made clear that they didn’t care whether Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez against her will — and they didn’t want want to find out.
Led by Graham and Cruz, Republican senators scoffed at even considering Julie Swetnick’s allegation that Kavanaugh participated in a culture of drugging girls and gang rape.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
