Received this e-mail from the former U.S. Ambassador Dan Baer’s (D. CO) U.S. Senate campaign:

We should all be furious — I am.
When I was a US Ambassador under President Obama I fought for human rights and the rule of law.
Now, I refuse to stand by and watch Mitch McConnell advance his cynical ploy to pollute our courts with right wing ideologues. He just used the nuclear option to get even more of Trump’s right wing judges through the Senate.
In a minute I am going to ask you to sign a petition — I want to be clear, no BS: when we get to 10,000 names I pledge to *personally* deliver it to McConnell in DC.
Did you know that McConnell forced through more than twice as many judges for Trump as Obama had confirmed in the same time frame? These judges are 92% white and 76% male — some of them have racist pasts, are rated unqualified by the American Bar Association, and have spoken out against the Affordable Care Act. And we will have them there FOR LIFE!
Let’s be clear: Mitch McConnell wants nothing more than to ram through Donald Trump’s far-right judges even on the Supreme Court.
Point blank: We need to oust Mitch McConnell. We need to flip the Senate for Democrats. And we can’t win the Senate without flipping Colorado.
That’s why I’m running in Colorado to finally turn our Senate seat blue.
Mitch McConnell’s outrageous behavior could ruin decades of progress.
Everything is on the line:
Protecting students from sexual assault on campuses — an issue I fought for as the head of the Colorado Department of Higher Education.
The future of marriage equality — an issue personally important to me and my husband, Brian.
Integrity and transparency in our elections — an issue that would cripple campaigns like mine that won’t take a dime of corporate PAC money.
A woman’s right to make her own decisions with her doctor. Voting rights. The Affordable Care Act.  
And that’s not all. Truthfully, there’s more at risk right now than I can put into words.
It’s never been more urgent that we elect more Democrats to the Senate and finally end Mitch McConnell’s dangerous reign as Majority Leader.
Thank you,
