We have an important ask for you.
In light of recent state and national CDC recommendations, Senate campaigns across the country are doing the right thing and starting to cancel all their in-person fundraisers over the next few weeks.
It’s better to be safe than sorry, but that means their fundraising numbers are going to slow way down ahead of this month’s End-of-Quarter deadline. Can you chip in $20 today and we’ll split it between VoteVets, MJ Hegar in Texas, Cal Cunningham in North Carolina, Mark Kelly in Arizona and Amy McGrath in Kentucky?
It’s impossible to ignore how critical it is we take back the Senate in November. Mitch McConnell and Trump-enabling Republicans have stalled Democratic bills intended to save lives and provide critical resources at a time when Americans need it the most.
The spread of COVID-19 doesn’t lessen the need for a Democratic majority in the Senate — if anything, it makes it more essential.
While our progressive veterans running for Senate are going to do everything to keep their teams and supporters safe, it’s up to us to make sure they don’t get drowned out by special-interest groups funding their opponents.
March is a crucial month every election cycle, but COVID-19 adds another layer of complications to an already uphill battle. This is one way our team can make a fast and easy difference at a time when it really matters.
Thanks for your help,
—The team at VoteVets
