FL-Sen: Sen. Kamala Harris (D. CA) Helps Bill Nelson (D) Defeat Trump Foot Soldier Rick Scott (R)

2 min read

Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA) in support of her colleague, U.S. Senator Bill Nelson’s (D. FL) re-election campaign:

Sen. Bill Nelson (D. FL)

Senator Bill Nelson is in trouble. Take a look:

SurveyUSA | Florida Senate 
Rick Scott – 46% 
Bill Nelson – 44%

In case you don’t know, Rick Scott is a self-funding millionaire who is a close friend of President Trump. He’s already spent $26 million from his personal fortune to attack Bill Nelson. Combined with GOP super PACs, more than $40 million has been spent to defeat him in November.

Bill Nelson is my friend and has been a close ally of our cause since I took office last year. He supports expanding Medicaid and access to affordable health care, fighting climate change, stopping offshore drilling, banning assault weapons, and passing universal background checks for gun purchases.

Now, here’s the hard truth: if Bill Nelson loses re-election in November, there’s virtually no chance we take back the Senate. That's why I'm asking:

Can you rush a donation of $10 or more to Bill Nelson’s campaign before next week’s FEC fundraising deadline? Every donation makes a huge difference when we’re this close to the election.

This is one of those races that could make or break the 2018 elections for Democrats. If we can hold off this challenge from one of Donald Trump’s closest allies, it will send a powerful message to this White House and help us replace Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader.

Thanks and take care,

— Kamala
