Received this e-mail today from the League of Conservation Voters in support of U.S. Senator Jon Tester’s (D. MT) re-election campaign:
BREAKING … last night at a raucous rally in Billings, Montana, President Trump leveled a vicious attack against Senator Jon Tester, claiming Tester was an obstructionist who is standing in the way of Trump's efforts to pack the courts with polluter-backed extremists.
LCV Victory Fund is proud to stand behind Senator Tester and his brave efforts to keep a balanced judiciary. But here's our problem — the president won Montana by 20 points in 2016, which means his words carry weight in the state — and there's no way we retake an environmental majority in the Senate if we don't also defend allies like Senator Tester.
The good news is LCV Victory Fund is already supporting a large-scale field program in Montana aimed at getting Tester supporters to vote by mail. A quick infusion of $20,000 over the next 24 hours can help us beef up that program and counter Trump's attack.
There's too much at stake in Montana and other battleground states this year — and we can't afford to let these winnable races slip away. Please, chip in to LCV Victory Fund today.
