Received this e-mail yesterday from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA), in support of Jon Ossoff’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign:
Our nation is in crisis.
As I'm writing to you, amidst a public health emergency, President Trump is deploying unidentified federal troops to patrol our cities and snatch American citizens into unmarked vans on our streets.
We *must* win the White House and secure a majority in the U.S. Senate.
That's why today I'm urging you to join me in supporting my friend Jon Ossoff for U.S. Senate in Georgia.
Jon is an investigative journalist and media executive whose company has exposed bribery, human traffickers, war crimes, and corporate abuses.
I've gotten to know Jon over the last few years, and his passion for exposing corruption and the abuse of power is EXACTLY what's called for in the Senate today.
I want Jon Ossoff to fight alongside me in the U.S. Senate. So I'm asking you to help:
Since winning the Democratic nomination in a landslide, Jon has earned the endorsement of organizations like NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, and the Human Rights Campaign.
They all know what I know: Jon Ossoff is a champion of the people who will stand up to corruption and the abuse of power.
Trump and Mitch McConnell know Jon is a threat. Republican super PACs have already committed more than $21 million to try to stop him. We need to show our grassroots power and equip Jon to hit back twice as hard.
It's long past time to end Mitch McConnell's reign in the Senate.
If Democrats win the Senate majority, we won't have to worry about another two years of extreme right-wing judges and disgraceful attempts to rip health care away from millions of Americans.
Instead, we will be able to make real progress on the issues that are important to us: making prescription drugs affordable, taking meaningful steps to combat the climate crisis, addressing police brutality, keeping our children safe from gun violence, and securing equal justice for all.
Georgia is a key battleground state and Jon is running to win one of the most flippable seats in the Senate. For Democrats to win a Senate majority, we have to win this seat.
And Jon has what it takes to win.
But only with your help.
Thank you for stepping up,
