Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D. IL) in support of U.S. Senator Gary Peters’ (D. MI) re-election campaign:
My friend Gary Peters is working hard to win his re-election fight this November.
But unfortunately, his GOP opponent has now outraised him for the third quarter in a row.
And if that weren’t enough, the DeVos family has already sunk nearly $1 million into a super PAC in an effort to defeat Gary and flip Michigan’s Senate seat to the Republican column.
We can’t let that happen. We need to defend every Democratic Senator up for re-election this November — including Gary Peters in Michigan. Will you make a $5 contribution to help us keep this seat blue and take back the Senate?
Our efforts to elect a Democratic majority in the Senate have never been more urgent.
But to do that, we can’t lose a single Democratic seat. And with Gary’s race in Michigan neck-and-neck in the polls, Republicans are looking to defeat him and derail our fight.
