Received this e-mail today from Sara Gideon’s (D. ME) U.S. Senate campaign in support of U.S. Senator Doug Jones’ (D. AL) re-election campaign:

This might seem like an odd request coming from me (I have my own campaign to run!) but today, I’m asking you to support Doug Jones’s reelection campaign.

You see, Jeff Sessions just announced he is challenging Doug Jones for U.S. Senate in Alabama.

This news should matter to all of us because if Democrats want to take back the Senate in 2020, we can’t afford to lose in Alabama. We have to defend the seats we already have in order to make progress towards the majority.

And when I defeat Susan Collins next year, I’ll need people like Doug Jones by my side in the Senate, fighting for our shared progressive ideals. That’s why I’m asking you personally:

Split a $3 contribution between our campaigns today to help defend Doug Jones’s seat, win in Maine, and flip the Senate for Democrats.

Let me remind you what we’re up against here: Jeff Sessions was once nominated for a position as a federal judge in 1986 and was not confirmed because he was considered too far-right and controversial, even then.

He once joked that the Ku Klux Klan was “okay until he learned that they smoked marijuana.”

And most recently, he served as Donald Trump’s Attorney General and defended the administration's family separation policy.

We can’t let Jeff Sessions win this Senate race so please, split a contribution right away. You can use this link:

Thank you for being a part of the grassroots team that’s going to flip the Senate. I know we can do this with your support.

All my best,

Sara
