CA-25: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D. MA) Gives Christy Smith (D) A Bump In Defeating Trump's GOPer

4 min read

First off, my condolences to Senator Warren on this:

Donald Reed Herring, the oldest brother of Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, died on Tuesday from Covid-19. He was 86.

Ms. Warren confirmed Mr. Herring’s death in a series of tweets Thursday morning, calling him “charming and funny, a natural leader.”

“What made him extra special was his smile — quick and crooked, it always seemed to generate its own light, one that lit up everyone around him,” Ms. Warren wrote. “I’m grateful to the nurses and front-line staff who took care of him, but it’s hard to know that there was no family to hold his hand or to say ‘I love you’ one more time — and no funeral for those of us who loved him to hold each other close.”

Prior to this news, Senator Warren endorsed twenty Democratic women running for down-ballot offices. One of those women was State Assemblywomen Christy Smith (D. CA-25) who is running in the special election next month to fill Rep. Katie Hill’s (D. CA-25) seat:

In a statement released with the announced endorsement, Senator Warren reflected:

“I am proud to endorse Christy Smith because whether it was serving on the local PTA, school board, or in the state house, Christy has always stepped up.

By swearing to never take a dime from a Corporate PAC or D.C. lobbyist, I know she will fight for her constituents, and her constituents alone.

Now more than ever, we need fighters like Christy in Congress working to lower the cost of prescription drugs, make healthcare more affordable, provide American workers access to paid sick leave, and ensure the needs of families come first. I’m honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with her in this fight.”

Of course, Smith is ecstatic to have Warren’s backing. Here’s the e-mail I received from Smith’s campaign yesterday:

We're so honored to announce that Senator Elizabeth Warren just endorsed Christy!

Can you join Elizabeth Warren in supporting Christy Smith by making a contribution to her campaign today? Our election is rapidly approaching, and we need all of the support we can get.

Here's what Senator Warren had to say:
“I am proud to endorse Christy Smith because whether it was serving on the local PTA, school board, or in the state house, Christy has always stepped up.

By swearing to never take a dime from a Corporate PAC or D.C. lobbyist, I know she will fight for her constituents, and her constituents alone.

Now more than ever, we need fighters like Christy in Congress working to lower the cost of prescription drugs, make healthcare more affordable, provide American workers access to paid sick leave, and ensure the needs of families come first. I'm honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with her in this fight.”

Elizabeth Warren and Christy Smith together in Congress could accomplish so much for our working families — from better quality education to fairer wages and so much more, they will get to work in Washington for us.

So, if you can, please chip in $5 or whatever you can to Christy's campaign today! We've got less than 3 weeks to win our special election.

Thanks so much for supporting our campaign.

— Team Christy

And of course, Smith paid her respects to Warren’s family:
