Received this e-mail today from VoteVets in support of Rep. Max Rose’s (D. NY-11) re-election campaign:
Today, Afghanistan veteran and freshman congressman Max Rose (D-NY) is shipping out with the National Guard to assist some of the hard-hit cities with their coronavirus response efforts in his state.
Leaders lead. When they’re called they hop to and don’t dither or make excuses and we should all be grateful for Rep. Rose answering this call to duty. But while he is mobilized and serving his country during this unthinkable crisis, his campaign is effectively on hold.
Will you make a contribution to Rep. Rose’s campaign and VoteVets today? The least we can do while he is on the frontlines of this epidemic is to help out his campaign at this critical part of the election cycle.
Rep. Rose isn’t new to this fight against the Coronavirus. He has been at the forefront of the epidemic for weeks, rallying colleagues to call on President Trump to send the U.S.N.S Comfort to his state to help with overwhelmed hospitals and visiting makeshift hospitals like the Javits Center in New York. His seriousness, in the face of this pandemic, is exactly why we worked so hard to send him to Washington, in 2018.
Over 2,200 other service members, like Max Rose, have been deployed to bravely assist in critical tasks like staffing testing sites and field hospitals in some of the country’s worst hotspots for the virus.
Now more than ever we need to support true leadership. If you can, split a donation today between VoteVets and Rep. Max Rose to say thank you for his service during this unprecedented public health crisis.
This is one of the most vulnerable seats we’re defending in the House this year — Trump won this district in 2016 before Rep. Rose flipped the seat in a long-shot upset race in 2018. It’s important we get your help today to make sure keep Rep. Rose in the House come November.
