Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D. IL) in support of her colleague, U.S. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin’s (D. IL) re-election campaign:
My friend, mentor and fellow Illinoisan Senator Dick Durbin is running for reelection, and he just won his primary last week.
Senator Durbin has always had my back, and I want to do everything I can to help his general election campaign hit the ground running.
Dick Durbin has been a strong champion for our values in the Senate. He wrote the original DREAM Act and has been fighting to keep families together for more than 18 years. He’s also been a leader in the fight to defend the Affordable Care Act, enact meaningful criminal justice reform and secure our elections from foreign interference.
We can’t afford to lose Dick Durbin’s voice in the Senate. There is just too much on the line in 2020 and beyond. So please, chip in if you can.
All my best,
