Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D. IL) in support of U.S. Senator Doug Jones’ (D. AL) re-election campaign:
Jeff Sessions recently announced he is challenging Doug Jones for Senate in Alabama.
Doug Jones has spent his entire career advocating for civil rights. He even took on the KKK, successfully prosecuting two former members who were behind the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham.
Jeff Sessions, however, once joked that the Ku Klux Klan was “okay until he learned that they smoked marijuana.”
In the Senate, Doug has shown he’s a man of integrity and character, working tirelessly to ensure more Americans — including those in rural communities — have access to quality health care.
Meanwhile, Jeff Sessions served as Donald Trump’s Attorney General and defended family separation at the border and discrimination against LGBTQ Americans.
It’s clear that we can’t afford to lose Doug Jones in the Senate — so please:
All my best,
