Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D. NJ), in support of Rep. Ben Ray Luján’s (D. NM) U.S. Senate campaign:
To create real change for American families, we need to win back the Senate and end Mitch McConnell's stranglehold on progress — and that means flipping seats across the country and holding onto every seat we have.
Ben Ray is currently serving in the House of Representatives, where he's risen through the ranks to become the highest-ranking Hispanic member of Congress. Just two years ago, he led our efforts to retake the House majority and elect an unprecedented number of women and minorities.
Over the last few years, I've had the pleasure to work with Ben Ray on legislation that would address systemic inequities in our criminal justice system, expand health care for millions, and help our country recover from COVID-19. He's been a leader in the House, and I know he'll be an incredible leader in the Senate.
Ben Ray is running in one of the most vulnerable open Senate seats for Democrats. President Trump's campaign already has staff on the ground in New Mexico — and his operatives are spending big money to attack New Mexico Democrats.
Our margin of victory to flip the Senate is just a few seats, and we can't take any state for granted. Ben Ray has a real chance to win his race, but he needs our help.
I'd be proud to serve with Ben Ray in the Senate.
