Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Tina Smith (D. MN) in support of Cal Cunningham’s (D. NC) U.S. Senate campaign:
A new poll in North Carolina’s Senate race shows Democrat Cal Cunningham leading Republican Senator Thom Tillis by 47-40% — and he just outraised Tillis by a 2-to-1 margin last quarter.
Cal has Republicans like Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell running scared. They’ll do whatever it takes to defeat him, just like they’re trying to defeat us.
As we’re a little too familiar with, they’ll spare no expense to protect their own — which is why Mitch McConnell’s super PAC, the Republican National Committee, and the Senate Republicans’ campaign arm are all dumping millions into North Carolina to sink Cal’s campaign.
But this race is one of our best chances to flip one of the four seats Democrats need to take back the majority. And it’s already on track to be the most expensive Senate race in the country — which means Cal needs our help.
Will you help Cal Cunningham keep up the momentum by splitting a contribution between his campaign for U.S. Senate in North Carolina and ours today? Together, we can flip the Senate and take the gavel out of McConnell’s hand.
Cal is a lifelong North Carolinian and a veteran with a proven record of public service. He’s running against Tillis because he knows that folks across his home state deserve a Senator who will listen and fight for them, not special interests.
I may be biased, but I believe one of the best ways we can put our country back on the right track will be by flipping the Senate. That’s why I’m hoping you’d consider helping out Cal today.
Thanks for everything. Stay safe.
