Received quite a few e-mails from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA). The first one is in support of Lucy McBath’s (D. GA-06) campaign:
After losing her son to senseless gun violence, Lucy McBath has dedicated her life to advocating for common sense gun control. She’s fought tooth and nail to make progress, never wavering once in the belief that she could still use her skills as a mother to protect all of our children from harm.
She’s tireless. She’s fearless. And now that she’s running for the House in Georgia’s 6th District, she just might be the key to Democrats taking back control of Congress.
This is one of the most important races in our quest to take back the House, pass progressive reform, and hold the Trump Administration accountable for its actions. Will you join me in supporting Lucy and our efforts to take back control of Congress?
Lucy’s running against a Republican incumbent with a long history of imposing her anti-choice views on others, and trying to limit access to women’s healthcare. Before she was in Congress, Rep. Karen Handel was infamous for her direct attacks on Planned Parenthood.
We need leaders who fight for women — not against them. And that’ll be especially true if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court. As a two-time survivor of breast cancer, Lucy understands the importance of supporting women’s healthcare. And she’ll fight to make sure that every woman has access to the care she needs.
Lucy is a progressive champion who’s ready to bring new ideas and leadership to Washington, and will continue to fight for all of our children. Will you join me today in supporting Lucy by chipping in a grassroots contribution?
This election is about ensuring that our government works for all people, not just those at the top. I hope you’ll join me in supporting candidates like Lucy who are going to help Democrats take back the House.
Thank you for joining me,
The next one in support of Jill Schiller’s (D. OH-02) campaign:
A former attorney, Obama administration staffer, and founder of a successful non-profit that focuses on children’s literacy—Jill Schiller is the real deal.
And the guy she’s running against? Well, he voted to take health care away from 70,000 Ohioans he was sent to Washington to represent. And he’s taken millions of dollars from special interest groups like insurance companies and prescription drug companies.
It’s an easy choice—but this isn’t an easy race.
Jill has a real shot at winning this seat and pushing Southern Ohio forward—but only with your help.
I know this race is going to be a tough battle. But Jill is running a smart campaign that’s rooted in principle.
Even with the corporate money flowing in to her opponent, she’s pledged not to take a dime from corporate PACs—that’s the kind of person we need to Congress right now.
If we’re going to take on Republicans trying to rig the system for billionaires and big corporations, we need Democrats like Jill Schiller fighting for working people in Congress.
Thanks for your help,
The next one in support of this slate of candidates:
Brace yourself, because I’m about to say something that’s pretty controversial in Washington. Are you ready? O.K., here goes:
I believe in science.
When scientists talk, I listen. That’s how I know that climate change is real. But the Trump administration ignores science, denies climate change, and bows down to Big Oil and Big Coal – by pulling out of the Paris Agreement and shredding rules against poisoning our air and water.
This November, we need to elect Democrats in Congress who will fight back.
Harley Rouda, Sean Casten, and Mike Levin are three Democratic House candidates who aren’t just ready to fight climate change – they’re prepared to lead the charge.
They’ve stuck their necks out, and that makes them targets of powerful fossil fuel interests. So we need to have their backs.
Will you chip in right now – $4, or whatever you can afford – to help Harley Rouda, Sean Casten, and Mike Levin flip their districts from red to blue? Let’s put these three fighters in the ring against climate change.
Harley Rouda, Sean Casten, and Mike Levin have the guts to fight Big Oil and the smarts to create clean energy jobs.
Harley Rouda (CA-48) is running against Russia’s favorite Congressman, Dana Rohrabacher, a cheerleader for offshore drilling who’s called climate change “a total fraud.” Harley Rouda is a business leader who has worked with eco-friendly businesses. He will fight to protect California’s shores from coastal drilling, make Southern California a hub of clean energy innovation, and help save our planet. Washington needs his voice – not Dana Rohrabacher’s.
Sean Casten (IL-06), is a scientist who created a company that reduces greenhouse emissions by recycling wasted energy. He is running to unseat a Republican Congressman who called climate change “junk science” in a district that Donald Trump lost by seven points. Fighting climate change has been the cause of Sean Casten’s career, and he knows the ins and outs of how we can create good jobs by promoting clean energy.
And Mike Levin (CA-49), an environmental lawyer and a leader in the clean energy industry, has the experience to help lead us towards a sustainable energy future and fight climate change. He’s running to take back California’s 49th District, where he once handed the retiring Republican congressman, Darrell Issa, a copy of “Global Warming for Dummies” at a town hall.
Harley, Sean, and Mike know that we’ve got to embrace our moral obligation to protect this earth.
We’ve already seen waves of scientists marching and rallying against the Trump administration’s war on facts – and you know things are bad when the nerds leave their labs and take to the streets.
From now until November 6th, we all need to do everything we can to fight for our planet – and right now, that means helping these three champions.
