Received this e-mail from former presidential candidate, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D. IN), in support of Mark Kelly’s (D. AZ) U.S. Senate candidate:
This November, we have a chance not only to defeat President Trump, but also to flip the Senate so we can finally start making progress on the issues that we’ve been fighting for since the day he took office.
We have the opportunity to not only right the wrongs that have been created by Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, but to begin a new era where all Americans, no matter where they live or how much money they have, can have the opportunity to succeed.
But none of that will be possible with Mitch McConnell as the Majority Leader.
That’s why I’m personally reaching out today and asking you to help Mark Kelly win his race in Arizona so we can flip this Senate seat.
If you are able, please consider making a donation to Mark’s people-powered campaign. He just won his primary and will need all the help he can get to beat back the attacks coming from Mitch McConnell now that he is the nominee.
As we think about what our country will look like after Election Day, it’s leaders like Mark who we will need most. We urgently need to reshape the future of our country by electing Democratic leaders who will propose solutions based on science, data and facts.
We have to do everything in our power to make sure we elect leaders who will fight for us on the issues that count.
I know Mark will be that leader for Arizona and the country, but first we have to do everything in our power to make sure he succeeds against the forces lined up against him.
I know that times are hard right now, but believe me when I say that we will make it through this, together.
