Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D. CA) in support of her colleague, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown’s (D. OH) re-election campaign:
In a few moments, I am going to ask you to add a donation to support the re-election campaign of my colleague Sherrod Brown. Before I do, I want you to know three reasons why your donation is so important today:
- Recent polling shows Sherrod is losing ground after facing millions of dollars in negative attacks. The amount of money they’ve spent is just obscene, and it’s taking a toll.
- Sherrod is a fighter when it comes to challenging greed and abuse from the Trump Administration, Wall Street, and corporate special interests. Losing his voice as a watchdog of corruption in Washington would be devastating (this is why these groups are spending so much to defeat him, by the way.)
- Sherrod’s opponent is a Trump-endorsed registered lobbyist who violated campaign finance regulations and will rubber-stamp the worst of Trump’s agenda: from eliminating protections for pre-existing conditions to their anti-immigrant agenda.
This race is tightening and your donation could be the difference. If you can afford to, I hope you pitch in today. Losing Sherrod’s voice in Congress would be an awful loss for the progressive movement.
Thanks for stepping up,
