Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of Rep. Ben Ray Luján’s (D. NM) U.S. Senate campaign:
I’m asking from the bottom of my heart:I know we have a historic chance to unseat Mitch McConnell and take back the entire Senate. But we can’t do it without winning Ben Ray’s race. I’m asking you to rush $10 before his critical end-of-week deadline in 48 hours to elect Ben Ray, DEFEAT McConnell, and FLIP the Senate. >>I’ve been in the Senate for a decade.The damage I’ve watched Mitch McConnell inflict in that time is unspeakable, Sam.– I’ve watched him cover up Trump’s ties to Russia– I’ve witnessed his shameful assault on Medicare– I’ve watched his relentless attacks on women’s rightsAnd now, I’d love nothing more than to watch him lose his seat — and his majority — for what he’s done.I know this is our once-in-a-lifetime chance to defeat McConnell. Even Fox News admits his favorability is historically low.But I also know Democrats can’t win the Senate without winning Ben Ray’s race. I need a progressive champion like him serving alongside me in the Senate.He needs 138 gifts before his critical end-of-week deadline in 48 hours. Can I count on your $10?
