Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D. WA) in support State Senator Barbara Bollier’s (D. KS) U.S. Senate campaign:
This is huge:
As part of my Sprint to 2020, I’m doing everything I can to support Democrats in key races across the country who would be the champions for families we need in the Senate. That’s why I wanted to share this exciting update right away — at this incredibly pivotal moment, it’s critical that we stand with Barbara Bollier and show the GOP that we’re ready to turn Kansas blue.
Kansas has long been considered a part of the conservative stronghold — so it is no surprise Republicans are gearing up to nominate a radical, anti-immigration ideologue who served under President Trump. But this latest poll is the clearest sign yet that the people of Kansas are ready for a change. That means Barbara can flip this seat — with our help.
I wouldn’t ask if it weren’t important. We need to show the GOP we’re ready to fight and will stand with our Democratic Senate candidates to reclaim the Senate in November.
