Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D. WA) in support of U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D. NH), Tina Smith (D. MN), and Doug Jones’ (D. AL) re-election campaigns:
Jeanne Shaheen. Tina Smith. Doug Jones.
While these Democratic Senators fight for our families, the GOP is plotting their defeat.
Republicans know that if they beat these incumbent Senators, Democrats will have no path to taking back control of the Senate. But our Sprint to 2020 program is mobilizing grassroots supporters to have our Democrats’ backs and help ensure that doesn’t happen.
The public health crisis we’re experiencing as a nation is an important reminder that strong, competent leadership is an absolute necessity — the kind we’d get with a Democratic majority. And time and time again, Jeanne, Tina, and Doug have stood with families, made decisions based on science, and always worked to protect the people of their states.
The polls show that we can take back the Senate — but we can’t do it if we lose a single Democratic seat. That’s why I’m asking this grassroots team to step up and help us hold on to these must-win Senate seats in New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Alabama.
