Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA), in support of her colleague, U.S. Senator Ed Markey’s (D. MA) re-election campaign:
I'm glad to endorse Ed Markey, my partner in the United States Senate, for re-election this year.
As an author of the Green New Deal, he's on the front lines of the movement for good-paying clean energy jobs and environmental justice.
As someone who grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood, he knows firsthand the needs of working-class families.
And as a champion for working people in Massachusetts and across the country, he's ready to keep up the fight with another term in the Senate.
But he's in a tough race right now. The polls are neck and neck. The primary is just a few weeks away. And people are requesting their mail-in ballots and making up their minds right now. The next few weeks of grassroots organizing could make all the difference — so now's the moment to make sure his team is fully funded.
Timothy, if it makes sense for you right now, please chip in $10 or whatever you can to support Ed Markey's Senate re-election campaign and Warren Democrats. You'll help fund Ed Markey's get-out-the-vote program in these powerfully important final weeks — and you'll help elect Democrats like up him and down the ballot.
He has spent his career as a champion for clean energy jobs — and as Big Oil's worst nightmare.
He's got a plan to make the strong gun laws in Massachusetts a model for the entire country.
And his voice is critical in so many other fights — from ensuring universal health care, to tackling the opioid crisis, to guaranteeing net neutrality, to making sure our government puts people first as we respond to this public health and economic crisis.
Ed is my friend and my partner in the Senate. I've got his back, and he'll always have yours, Timothy.
Thanks for being a part of this,
