Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D. IL) in support of Amy McGrath’s (D. KY) U.S. Senate campaign:
I’m so excited to share this news:
My friend Amy McGrath just announced her run for U.S. Senate in Kentucky.
Amy is exactly the kind of badass I need by my side in Washington. She’s a Veteran, a pilot and a mom with young kids — no wonder we get along so well!
As Senator, I know Amy will work for our shared goals: Ensuring that all Americans — no matter how much money they make — have access to good healthcare. Supporting our servicemembers from the moment they put on their uniform to long after they transition into civilian life. And investing in working parents and our children’s education.
Like I said, Amy is our best chance to beat Mitch McConnell, but this is still going to be an incredibly tough campaign. Amy needs to start strong if she’s going to win. So I’m asking you:
Amy knows more than most that we don’t need to choose between looking out for our troops overseas and caring for our families here at home. She will be an important ally in the Senate, so thank you for helping her campaign start strong.
