Received this e-mail today from the Council for a Livable World:

The Senate just voted to acquit President Trump, abdicating their Constitutional responsibilities and ignoring his many transgressions that continue to jeopardize U.S. national security.

A Senate that cannot manage a fair impeachment trial, and that has also failed to deal with this nation’s growing security challenges, needs to be voted out.

My colleague, Geoff Wilson, emailed you last week about four challengers to some of the Senate’s worst: Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and, of course, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the master of partisan gridlock who created the pathway for Trump’s acquittal.

Today, I’m urging you again to donate to candidates who can help turn the Senate around. These four candidates will be strong advocates for diplomacy, arms control and peace.

Amy McGrath (D-KY) is taking on McConnell, who is also the least popular Senator in the country. McGrath, a decorated former military officer, has been strong in her support of the Iran nuclear deal, and is committed to saner nuclear policies and a sustainable defense budget.


Former governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) is running against the vulnerable Gardner, in what political experts rate as a toss-up race. Hickenlooper cares deeply about nuclear issues, having joined the nuclear freeze movement in the 1980s.


Sara Gideon (D-ME) is in a close contest against Collins, who clings to her “moderate” label but too often sides with conservatives. Gideon is passionate about arms control, and we know she would be a great ally and advocate for our cause.


Cal Cunningham (D-NC) is polling neck-and-neck against the very vulnerable Tillis, who has a low approval rating in the state. Cunningham is a combat veteran, business leader, lawyer and former legislator. He will be an active supporter of our issues in the Senate.


The American people deserve a new Senate majority, and we believe these candidates can produce a new, progressive Senate.

The fight for the Senate is on. Please consider generous donations to their campaigns for a better Senate.
