Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Sara Gideon’s (D. ME) U.S. Senate campaign:
We all want to put a Democrat in the White House, and I’m committed to doing everything in my power to support our nominee. But without a Democratic Senate majority, Mitch McConnell will make it impossible to get anything done. We can forget about passing progressive legislation or confirming Supreme Court justices.
So we’ve got to do everything we can to take back the Senate. And that starts with electing Sara Gideon in Maine.
As Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, Sara has strengthened and protected women’s access to reproductive health care, passed automatic voter registration, and led Maine’s fight against the opioid epidemic.
Sara’s a popular and effective public servant, and this is a race we can win: In 2018, Democrats defeated an incumbent U.S. House member and turned the governors’ mansion blue.
It’s just going to take resources, and your dollar goes a long way in Maine. Click here to contribute to Sara’s campaign today. Let’s flip this seat and take back the Senate.
