Received this e-mail yesterday from U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D. IL) in support of U.S. Senators Tina Smith (D. MN) & Gary Peters (D. MI) re-election campaigns:
I’m writing to you today to remind you that my Democratic colleagues Senators Tina Smith and Gary Peters are up for reelection this year — and to ask for your help in supporting their campaigns.
Tina has been a leading advocate for lowering drug prices and expanding health care access in our rural communities. Meanwhile, Gary was named one of the most effective legislators in the Senate and always makes sure that the problems affecting Midwestern families get the deserved amount of attention in Washington.
Democrats can’t afford to lose a single Senate seat or to lose these two strong leaders in Washington. So I’m asking:
This November’s election will be one of the most important of our lifetimes — and while taking back the White House is critical, we also must ensure that Democrats take back the Senate so we can make progress on the issues affecting working families today.
