Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D. IN), in support of U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s (D. NH) re-election campaign:
The 2020 election is a chance to end an era of division and cruelty and launch the era that comes next – one where every American has access to affordable health care and a quality education.
But without taking back the Senate from Mitch McConnell, we won't be able to make progress on the issues closest to our hearts. And that's why I'm reaching out to you today.
Democrats' path to the Senate majority hinges on protecting New Hampshire's Senate seat by reelecting Jeanne Shaheen. And with experts at CNBC calling her one of the most vulnerable Democratic senators in the country, Republicans are doubling down to flip New Hampshire red. So today, I'm asking you to help Jeanne raise $25,000 before midnight to protect this seat:
On the campaign trail, I spent a lot of time talking to Granite Staters in diners, town halls and forums. I know winning here won't be easy. And I know that New Hampshire's races are always close: During the last Senate election that took place in the state, Democrats won by just 1,017 votes.
And after talking to folks on the ground, I know New Hampshire needs and deserves a strong leader like Jeanne to stand behind our shared values and fight for what matters most. And with the GOP doing everything they can to flip this seat, it's going to be a tough fight – so we need your help to do it.
Thanks for everything you do.
