Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D. CA-15), in support of Dr. Al Gross’ (I. AK) U.S. Senate campaign:
When you're sick, you call a doctor.
And now, as our country works to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, it's high time we call a doctor to the Senate.
We need a leader who understands public health, listens to the experts, and fights to protect the people, not special interests — and that leader is Dr. Al Gross, a surgeon and commercial fisherman with a master's degree in public health who is running for Senate in Alaska.
And guess what?
Recent polling shows that this race is tied. You heard that right — Dr. Al Gross is tied with Dan Sullivan. And the Cook Political Report and Center for Politics have officially moved Alaska to the battleground map.
This health crisis calls for a doctor, and this crisis of leadership calls for someone like Dr. Al Gross. I'm doing all I can to get him to the Senate to fight for every single American — and I'm asking you to join me. If you're able, please consider donating today.
Dr. Al Gross has dedicated his life and career to keeping Alaskans healthy; he's even provided medical care in the depths of the Alaska wilderness.
I've also heard stories about how a grizzly bear snuck up on him while he was duck hunting, how he took on that bear, and how he lived to tell the tale.
So I know Dr. Al Gross is ready to take on anything Mitch McConnell and the special interests throw at him. It's never mattered more to send a doctor to Washington to deliver a real remedy for change.
Thank you and stay safe,
