Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
In a minute, I'm going to ask you to split a donation of $5 or whatever you can between Off the Sidelines and Theresa Greenfield. But first, I want to tell you why it's so important.
The Senate majority is on the line this year. If we want to make progress on the issues we all care about — fighting for access to affordable health care, creating good-paying jobs, and protecting Social Security, then we need to elect Theresa Greenfield in Iowa.
Flipping the Senate is possible in 2020, but we need to win in Iowa first. Theresa is the best person for the job, but in order to fight back against Mitch McConnell and his special interest allies, it's going to take all of us working together.
I created Off the Sidelines to encourage women just like Theresa to run for office. So far, we've already elected more women to office than ever before — now, let's expand our successes in the Senate this year too!
Theresa is running for US Senate because she understands the struggles families are facing — because she's faced them too. I need a fighter like Theresa by my side in the US Senate. It's time to elect a leader who will fight for working people instead of the wealthy and well-connected.
But the only way she'll be able to win is with a strong grassroots team fighting alongside her. I hope you'll join me in supporting Theresa today.
