Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA), in support of her colleagues, U.S. Senators Tina Smith (D. MN) & Jeanne Shaheen’s (D. NH) re-election campaigns:

Sen. Tina Smith (D. MN)

Friends —

Right now, our nation is in crisis. It’s never been more important for us to flip the Senate, win the White House, and expand our House Majority.

But, we can only take back the Senate if we protect vulnerable Senators like Tina Smith, Senator from Minnesota, and Jeanne Shaheen, Senator from New Hampshire.

  • We need to re-elect Tina Smith. At his rally in Tulsa on Friday, Donald Trump vowed to flip Minnesota red in November. He only lost Minnesota by 1.5 points in 2016 and has promised to spend millions in this battleground state.
  • We must re-elect Jeanne Shaheen. Donald Trump and his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, just endorsed Jeanne’s right-wing self-funding opponent — who outraised Jeanne last quarter and is outspending her on the air now. Trump and Lewandowski are all-in on flipping the Granite State red.

We need these women in the Senate. If we don’t protect these Senate seats in Minnesota and New Hampshire, we have no chance of taking back power from Mitch McConnell in November. That would mean another two years of GOP attempts to rip away health care from millions and confirm more ultraconservative justices to the Supreme Court.

Rudman U.S. Courthouse in Concord on Wednesday, March 30, 2016. She appeared with former New Hampshire Supreme Court Chief Justice John Broderick and UNH Law professor Erin Corcoran.

Can you chip in $3 right now to re-elect Tina and Jeanne ahead of their critical end-of-quarter deadline? Protecting their vulnerable Senate seats is the only way we can flip the Senate and make meaningful progress.

Friend — Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell will do anything to maintain their grip on our democracy. We must fight to take it back. This November, we have a real shot at returning power to the people.

But we can only take back control of our country if we re-elect Tina Smith and Jeanne Shaheen. Their races are top targets for the GOP, and Trump is doubling down on his plans to turn both states red.

If you want to flip the Senate and crush Mitch McConnell’s dreams of a Republican Senate Majority, can you chip in $3 right now? Every penny will go to supporting Tina and Jeanne and flipping the Senate.

We can only win with you on our side. Thank you for stepping up.
