Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D. NV) in support of U.S. Senator Ed Markey’s (D. MA) re-election campaign:
This November, I will be proud to support my friend and colleague, Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, for re-election. But first, we need to join together to help him win his primary.
Ed has a clear reason for running, a bold vision for the future, and a record of progressive accomplishments. And we need to ensure every voter in Massachusetts hears his message.
Right now, Ed is fending off a formidable primary challenge. Pundits and political insiders say the race is statistically tied — and his opponent just dropped $2.4 million to double his TV ad buy.
When we take back the Senate this fall, we need champions like Ed Markey as a part of the new Democratic majority, fighting for progressive solutions to climate change and health care. We can’t afford to lose Ed’s essential voice — especially in such a pivotal moment for our nation.
