Received this e-mail today from Presidential candidate and U.S. Senator, Kamala Harris (D. CA), in support of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s (D. NH) re-election campaign:
No matter who wins the White House in 2020, we’ll never see an ounce of the progressive change we need as long as Mitch McConnell and the Republicans hold the Senate majority.
Defending New Hampshire’s Senate seat is key to taking back the Senate. But races up in New Hampshire are always tight: Jeanne won by just 3 percentage points back in 2014, and in 2016, Donald Trump fell just a few thousand votes short of victory.
Now, a new poll shows her tied with Senate control on the line – so Jeanne has to meet every single fundraising goal, including tonight’s, to keep this seat blue. That’s why I’m counting on you to donate every dollar you can before midnight tonight.
Jeanne needs our help to raise $50,000 to defend New Hampshire’s Senate seat – can we count on you to pitch in immediately? Please, rush $5 or more right now – before tonight’s midnight deadline – to help Jeanne Shaheen defend New Hampshire’s Senate seat and take back the Senate for Democrats.
I’ve served side by side with Jeanne Shaheen for two years, and I know we need her voice in the Senate now more than ever. Jeanne is the only woman currently serving on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee – and often the only woman in the room during critical decisions that affect our strategy abroad.
But CNBC is calling her one of the two most endangered Democratic senators in the entire country, and the GOP is prepared to spend millions of dollars to flip Jeanne’s seat from blue to red – with right-wing groups already pouring money into New Hampshire to defeat her.
Jeanne needs our help right now. Please, donate $5 or more right now to help protect Jeanne Shaheen from the GOP’s attacks and take back the Senate for Democrats.
