Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D. NH) and Tina Smith’s (D. MN) re-election campaigns:
If you care about taking back the Senate, Nicholas, here are the three things you need to know today:
- Senators Jeanne Shaheen (NH) and Tina Smith (MN) are two of the most endangered Democrats of the cycle.
- Losing either of these races would mean handing Mitch McConnell the Senate majority for another two years.
- EVERYTHING we care about—health care, the Supreme Court, women’s reproductive freedoms, gun safety, the environment—hangs in the balance.
We can FINALLY send Mitch McConnell packing and take back the Senate, but that means supporting Jeanne and Tina TODAY. They’re coming up on their first big fundraising deadline of the year, and need to raise $10,000 by midnight to fight Trump and McConnell’s dark money groups.
Trump is dead-set on winning Minnesota and New Hampshire this year, and will spend MILLIONS to flip both states.
He’s already endorsed Tina’s opponent, former Congressman Jason Lewis. A former conservative talk radio host, Lewis is a climate change-denier who spent his time in Washington siding with powerful special interests over the people of Minnesota.
And Trump has already held two MAGA rallies in New Hampshire, and continues to recruit his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, to challenge Jeanne.
We cannot take these races for granted—not when EVERYTHING is on the line.
