Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in support of Jon Ossoff (D. GA) & Raphael Warnock’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaigns:
I've written to you about Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock before. They're both running for the U.S. Senate in Georgia.
That's right: Two Senate seats, two elections, two very real chances to flip Georgia's U.S. Senate seats completely blue.
So I'll get to it: Both races are absolutely winnable. We have a generational chance to win in Georgia, right now.
Democrats have been knocking on the door in Georgia for a long time.
In 2008, President Barack Obama came so close, building an organization to last the long haul. In 2018, it was Stacey Abrams, powering a movement that might have won, if not for election interference.
And of course, none of this would be possible without the lifelong struggle of the great John Lewis, who fought for voting rights in Georgia and across this country for his entire life. We celebrate his life by empowering Georgians to cast their vote for powerful change.
In 2020, we're going to stand on the shoulders of giants. In 2020, we're going to do what they've said can't be done.
We're going to win in Georgia. Twice.
A moneybomb for our two U.S. Senate candidates is the best way to kick this movement into high gear. To show Donald Trump and his friends that our movement is going to defeat them.
