Reminder: there’s a big special election on May 21st for the vacant PA-12 district. Received this e-mail today from Marc Friedenberg’s (D. PA-12) campaign:
I just sat down with Marc to take stock of the race with 10 days until the Special Election – here’s a rundown:
- We just received some crucial endorsements. Citing his support for labor issues, the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO has endorsed Marc, and we’re proud to stand with them in their fight to improve the lives of workers.
- Our field team is absolutely crushing it. Each of our campaign offices is buzzing with activity as our volunteers phonebank and head out for canvassing shifts.
- The momentum is on our side. This is a red district, no doubt about it. But Fred Keller is nervous – he called in a favor last week, asking Donald Trump to tweet support to shore up the GOP base.
All told, we have what it takes to win this race. We have a chance to show the country that the Blue Wave is still rolling through Pennsylvania as we gear up for 2020.
But first, we need the financial resources to keep running a competitive campaign until the minute the polls close on May 21st. This is going to be a close race, so we can’t back off our field or communications strategy early!
Thanks so much!
