Received this e-mail today from Khizr Khan in support of Rep. Ben Ray Luján's (D. NM) U.S. Senate campaign:
I love this country.My son, Capt. Humayun Khan, gave his life for our country.It brings me great pain to watch President Trump and Mitch McConnell disrespect the American values my son died to protect.I’d walk barefoot across this country to remove Republicans’ power and FLIP the Senate. But I can’t do it alone.I’m asking 3,458 patriots to help my dear friend Ben Ray meet his end-of-quarter deadline in 96 hours and WIN. Can I count on your $10?
In dark times like these, I know every one of us must step up.If you are concerned by the dangerous direction Trump and his enabler Republicans are taking our country — I’m asking you to step forward and give $10 to defeat their Republican Senate. >>If you are disgusted by President Trump and Republicans’ attacks on our immigrant communities, our health care, our place on the world stage — I’m asking you to elect amazing Democrats like Ben Ray who will reverse their ignorant actions. >>If you are outraged by Republicans’ attacks on war heroes like my son, Humayun — I’m asking you to step up, remember their sacrifices, and ensure they were not in vain. >>This country is too important for me to sit on the sidelines.Humbly yours,Khizr Khan
