Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA) in support of Rep. Jared Polis’ (D. CO) campaign:
I’m a janitor’s daughter who became a public school teacher, a professor, and a United States Senator.
My friend Jared Polis grew up traveling the country with his parents selling posters out of the back of a pick-up truck, and wound up starting several successful businesses from scratch, becoming a member of Congress, and on track to be the next governor of Colorado.
America is truly a country of opportunity!
But I’m worried that opportunities like the ones we had are slipping away for people who work hard and play by the rules.
Jared has a plan to help Coloradans get ahead at every stage of life, from pre-k on, and then ensure that they can have a dignified retirement.
Jared’s opponent, on the other hand? He inherited wealth and political clout, and has spent his career looking out for himself and his lobbyist donor friends.
Now those same special interests are going on the attack to keep Jared from becoming Colorado’s next governor, and because Jared isn’t taking a dime from special interests of his own, it’s up to us to help him fight back.
Jared is tireless in his fight to make sure that every child and adult has access to a great education. And at a time when the cost of college is going through the roof, Jared has fought tooth and nail to lower costs. I was proud to work with him on common sense legislation that would make it easier for families to have accurate information about how colleges are serving students and ensure that families are getting the most out of their hard-earned investment.
So I’ve seen firsthand how hard Jared is willing to fight for the people of Colorado. And right now, states need fighters like Jared to stand up to this administration’s overreach.
Thanks for fighting for my friend Jared,
