Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA) in support of Rep. Ben Ray Luján’s (D. NM-03) U.S. Senate campaign:
I’m about to ask you to chip in $3 to help Ben Ray win his critical Senate race and flip Mitch McConnell’s Senate majority, but first, let me explain why:
I’ve come to know Ben Ray well while serving in Congress. His leadership in the House is inspiring.
I’ve seen him successfully lead the charge to win back the House for Democrats with the most diverse slate of candidates in history.
And as Assistant Speaker of the House — and highest-ranking Hispanic member of Congress — he’s paving the way for more diverse leaders.
Believe me when I say – we need Ben Ray in the Senate.
Winning Ben Ray’s race is critical for Democrats’ chances of flipping the Senate and ousting McConnell from power. That’s why I’m asking you to split a donation and to help me ensure Ben Ray wins. It would mean so much to me if we could help him raise 500 gifts before the end of the month to reach his goal. »
New Mexico is a top target for Republicans — it’s one of the most competitive open Senate seats in the country.
That’s why President Trump and Republicans are trying to flood the state with big-donor money to defeat Ben Ray and turn his state red.
Friends – I am doing everything in my power to help Ben Ray beat back Republicans’ attacks and keep New Mexico in Democrats’ hands, because I need him fighting alongside me in the Senate.
His leadership and fighting spirit are exactly what it will take to oust McConnell and get the Senate working for everyone.
So I’m personally asking, if you can: Will you split a donation between me and Ben Ray before the end of the month?
Thank you for your generosity,
