Received this e-mail today from the former U.S. Senate Majority & Minority Leader Harry Reid (D. NV) in support of Rep. Jacky Rosen’s (D. NV) U.S. Senate campaign:
There is nothing more important for Democrats this year than taking back the Senate majority – and the only way we can do that is by winning here in Nevada.
But we received news that Jacky is basically tied with Dean Heller. If Jacky wins, Nevada wins.
A Mitch McConnell-backed Super PAC is spending at least $11.2 million to help Republicans keep this seat – and the Senate majority. The future of our country is riding on you.
If Jacky loses this fall, Senate Republicans will have free rein to defund Planned Parenthood, attack Americans' health care and send more anti-everything ultraconservatives to the Supreme Court.
We can't let this happen. That's why I told Jacky I'd help her raise the $15,000 she needs by midnight to keep Nevada blue and take back the United States Senate for Democrats.
Jacky Rosen combines compassion with tenacity. She's proven that as a member of the United States Congress, working late nights and long weeks to make sure our voices are heard in Washington.
She's a proven fighter. And she's the leader that Nevada needs.
But the only way she'll be able to stay competitive is if grassroots donors like you are committed to this fight. So I'm counting on you to give $1 before our midnight deadline to help flip Nevada blue and take back the Senate:
