Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Governor Steve Bullock’s (D. MT) U.S. Senate campaign:
A new poll out of Montana has my friend, Steve Bullock, TIED in Montana’s must-win Senate race.
If we win in Montana, we’re all-but guaranteed the Senate majority. But we know Mitch McConnell and his allies are preparing to spend millions to hold this seat. Steve needs our help—now—to close the gap.

Steve Bullock is one of the most effective governors in the country. In deep-red Montana, he expanded Medicaid, has been a leader on campaign finance reform, and is unapologetically pro-choice.
And he knows how to win. He’s won three statewide elections in Montana, including his governor’s race in 2016, when Trump carried the state by more than 15 points.
Meanwhile, Steve Bullock’s opponent, Senator Steve Daines, is one of Trump’s most reliable allies in Washington, and the founder of the Senate’s “pro-life” caucus, which is dedicated to advancing legislation that strips away reproductive freedoms.
Steve’s jumping into this race at a major fundraising disadvantage—he needs our help to close the gap. Please, help me raise $15,000 for Steve’s campaign by midnight tonight. Here's the best link: secure.actblue.com/donate/ots_sb
