Received this e-mail today from Presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D. MA) in support of Dan McCready’s (D. NC-09) campaign:
I’m reaching out to ask you to support Dan McCready’s special election campaign in North Carolina today. But first, can you give me a minute to explain why I’m fired up about this race, and why it’s so important for our country?
Dan McCready is just weeks away from Election Day in his special election. The results of his race last year were thrown out after Republican election fraud — paid for by his opponent — was discovered.
It’s going to be a close race. He and his opponent are tied in the latest polls, and Donald Trump and special interests are all-in to try to defeat Dan.
Big money is likely going to pour into his district in these final weeks, and Dan is counting on grassroots support to help him across the finish line. That’s why I’m hoping he can count your support today:
Dan is with us in the fight to stop the corrupting influence of money in Washington. He knows how important it is to overturn Citizens United and get corporate money out of politics.
He understands that to change Washington, we have to end corruption, plain and simple. That’s why he’s walking the walk and not taking corporate PAC money. His campaign is powered by people like you.
This is going to be the biggest special election before 2020, and if Dan wins, it will send a powerful message that our democracy isn’t for sale. But he can’t do this alone.
I’m grateful to have you in this fight. We can make Washington work for everyone, not just the rich and powerful.
Thanks for being a part of this,
