Received this e-mail today from VoteVets:
It isn’t just the elections in Florida and Georgia that are still going. A pair of our progressive veteran candidates are locked in super-close races — and they need our help.
We ran ads for Democrat Jared Golden in Maine — we shared them with you. Right now he’s down around 1,900 votes, but the unique ranked choice voting in the state makes him the favorite to win.
In California, Gil Cisneros trails by about 2,000 votes as well. But if you’ve followed the mail-in ballots in the state, you know that Democrats are making up ground every day.
We have a chance to win BOTH of these races. A good chance. But our progressive veterans need the funds to stop any attempts to take this election from them. So we are asking:
Can you split a donation between Jared Golden, Gil Cisneros, and VoteVets efforts to make sure EVERY vote is counted appropriately in their races? We can take two more House seats. But these progressive veterans need our help.
Democrats are poised to build on their majority, and it’s progressive veterans leading the way. This is so important. Because if we keep these margins high and beat Trump in 2020, we can really begin to turn things around for this country. So please chip in to help our veterans today.
All my best,
Iraq War Veteran and Chairman
