Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D. IL):
Taking back the White House isn’t our only mission in 2020. We are in the fight of our lives to stop Mitch McConnell’s era of obstruction and reclaim a Democratic majority in the Senate.
The only way we’ll do that is if we defend every Democratic Senator on the ballot, like Gary Peters in Michigan, while electing new Democrats, like Theresa Greenfield in Iowa and Amy McGrath in Kentucky.
Gary Peters is a Democratic champion who isn’t afraid to stand up to the extreme Trump-GOP agenda and fight back on behalf of Michigan’s families. He is a top target for the Republicans in 2020, so we must do everything we can to ensure they don’t defeat him in the next election.
In Iowa, Theresa Greenfield is running to unseat a Republican who time and again fails to fight for the people of her state in the Senate. Iowans—and all Americans—deserve Senators who are on their side. It’s going to be an uphill climb, but I know Theresa can win with our support.
And not only does the 2020 election give us an opportunity to remove Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader, Kentucky can remove him from the Senate and elect Amy McGrath. Amy is running because Mitch has turned his back on Kentucky and people all over the country.
