Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in support of Sara Gideon’s (D. ME) U.S. Senate campaign:
One year ago, the Senate was in the middle of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing—and Christine Blasey Ford's heart wrenching testimony against him.
The New York Times recently uncovered yet another story of Kavanaugh's misconduct, reinforcing that Judge Kavanaugh has no place on the Supreme Court.
And yet Kavanaugh was confirmed, thanks to a narrow Republican majority. One we must overcome in 2020 if we want to get our country back on track.
That's why I'm supporting Maine's Speaker of the House, Sara Gideon, who is running for US Senate. She's a true progressive champion and we need her voice in the debate.
Sara and I have an important FEC fundraising deadline coming up on September 30, so your donation couldn't come at a better time.
I know Sara has what it takes to win. Maine is one of the most flippable Senate seats in the country, and our path to the majority goes right through it. But it definitely won't be easy, and it's going to require all of us.
