Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America:
We have huge news: DFA is officially endorsing Ammar Campa-Najjar for Congress.
Last year, DFA members helped Ammar come within 3 points of defeating Rep. Duncan Hunter in a district deep in Trump country.
He was a first-time candidate and a Latino Arab-American running to unseat a five-term Republican incumbent. He ran a grassroots campaign focused on people and refused all corporate PAC contributions.
This race is a top target for progressives in 2020, and Ammar is counting on DFA members to provide a big boost of grassroots support to launch his campaign. Will you donate $3 or more right now to make sure Ammar has the resources he needs to win?
When Duncan Hunter was indicted by a federal grand jury on 60 counts for allegedly spending $250,000 of campaign funds on personal expenses, he launched desperate, racist attack ads on Ammar in order to hold on to his seat.
Already, Hunter’s campaign is going back to the same playbook in order to distract from his corruption trial. They just launched more baseless smear attacks on Ammar.
Ammar is doubling down on a grassroots campaign focused on people. He’s leading the charge to get big money out of politics — and he is fighting for our shared progressive values.
DFA members are already getting to work powering Ammar’s campaign. Ammar needs us in his corner to counter these attacks and win big in 2020.
Will you add a contribution of $3 or more today? Every single donation from DFA members will make sure Ammar has what it takes to flip this seat and bring his important, progressive voice to Congress.
Thanks for coming through,
– The DFA Team
