MI-Sen: Russ Feingold Returns To Help Sen. Gary Peters (D) Win Re-Election

2 min read

Received this e-mail today from the former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D. WI) on behalf of his group, LegitPAC, in support of U.S. Senator Gary Peters (D. MI) re-election campaign:

Michigan’s Gary Peters is one of just two Senate Democrats running in states Donald Trump carried in 2016 — and the national right-wing machine is dead-set on taking this seat back, no matter what they have to spend. They know full well Republicans must overperform in Michigan like they did in 2016 for Trump to have a chance there again.

And with Michigan locked in as a top Senate battleground for the GOP, you can bet that the upcoming campaign finance reports after this quarter ends are going to show mind-boggling sums of outside money flowing to Peters’ leading Republican challenger.

But Gary Peters fought his way into the Senate in 2014, and he can fend off the right wing again come next year — if enough progressive voters join him in the fight. Like you and me.

Contribute $3 now to support Gary Peters in Michigan. Let’s show Republican donors that dark money can’t drown out a strong Senate progressive with grassroots support at his back.

Republicans know Senator Gary Peters is more than just a Democratic incumbent in a contested seat — he’s a fearless progressive who won’t tolerate assaults on democratic legitimacy. Peters co-sponsored federal voting rights legislation that would undo much of the damage created by Shelby County v. Holder, and he’s outspoken about GOP-led voter suppression efforts in his home state.

But if Republicans manage to replace Peters with another Trump ally, they grow their Senate majority and take away almost any hope Democrats have to block Republicans’ ultra-conservative judicial nominees — potentially including nominees to fill more than one Supreme Court vacancy.

With less than a week left until the first major end-of-quarter financial deadline of the 2020 cycle, we can make a lasting impact on one of next year’s biggest Congressional elections if we step up right now. And Donald Trump and Republicans know it.

Contribute $3 now to help Senator Gary Peters defeat the Republican machine in Michigan.

Thank you for standing up today,

Russ Feingold
