Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D. NY) in support of U.S. Senator Gary Peters (D. MI) re-election:
That’s what Donald Trump tweeted, officially endorsing GOP Senate candidate John James, who is trying unseat my colleague Gary Peters.
Big-money Republicans are funneling millions into Michigan, and it’s working: Gary was outraised last quarter, and the Cook Political Report has moved Gary’s race from “Likely” to “Lean Democrat.”
Polls in Michigan have the race as a statistical tie — and if we don’t defend this Senate seat, we cannot take back the Senate this November. Gary needs our help now: Will you donate $3 or more to re-elect Gary Peters in Michigan, and protect this seat from right-wing Republicans?
The facts are pretty clear here — and they’re also pretty scary:
- Nate Silver says if Republicans can win in Michigan this year, they can keep control of the Senate.
- CBS agrees — and says Gary’s seat could be THE race that decides control of the Senate.
- And after Trump won Michigan in 2016, CNBC rated Gary as one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for reelection this year.
My friend and colleague Gary is focused on strengthening our middle class by protecting access to quality, affordable health care, preparing our kids for the jobs of tomorrow and helping small businesses grow.
This is the leadership Michigan needs, and this is the Democratic leadership America needs — we need to keep this Senate seat, and we need to flip the Senate. Your donation of $3 or more right now could do exactly that: Will you donate right now to support Gary Peters’ reelection in Michigan?
