Received this e-mail yesterday from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA), in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
This November election is going to be one of the most consequential of our lifetimes. Justice, our common values, and the future of our democracy are at stake.
I'm writing to you today because I know that in order to fight for justice, we need to flip the Senate and oust McConnell. And the crucial race that will decide the fate of the Senate is in Iowa, where Theresa Greenfield is running to protect our shared values.
She knows the importance of protecting our values because she’s lived them. When she was 24, her first husband died in a tragic workplace accident. While she was left picking up the pieces, his Social Security survivor benefits helped keep her and her children out of poverty. When she was down, she got a hand up. Now, she's fighting to give a hand up to others.
And people are paying attention to Theresa. A new poll shows her neck-and-neck with her Republican opponent, Senator Joni Ernst, so she needs our help right away to keep up the momentum and flip this seat.
We only need to flip four seats to take back the majority in the Senate, and we have our best shot in Iowa. I know I can count on Theresa to fight alongside me for economic, environmental, and reproductive justice in the Senate.
McConnell knows his majority is on the line and he's ready to spend big to protect it —his super PAC has already pledged to spend over $12 million against Theresa. Meanwhile, Theresa isn't accepting a dime of corporate PAC money so she's counting on our support to help fight back.
