Received this e-mail today from Democracy for America:
You know Lindsey Graham. He's the Senator who frothed at the mouth in anger over how horrible Brett Kavanaugh was treated by Dr. Christine Ford during the Supreme Court hearings.
He's the Senator who said Trump is a kook, race-baiting, xenophobic, crazy, bigot not fit to be President who has now become Trump's most loyal lapdog even suggesting he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
And on policy, he's the ultra-conservative Senator from South Carolina whose crown achievement is attempting to rip health care away from millions of Americans.
Ready for the good news? It's time to announce our first 2020 Senate endorsement, and it’s a big one! Democrat Jaime Harrison is stepping up to defeat Graham — and we're going to help him do it.
Jaime has already received an outpouring of support from people like you, raising $270,000 from small-dollar donors in just 24 hours, displaying the great potential of his people-powered campaign.
You’ve stepped up and pitched in to DFA before to help us give incredible candidates like Jaime the resources to win. Will you contribute $5 to DFA and Jaime today so we have what it takes to defeat Graham and send Jaime to the Senate?
Now, defeating Lindsey Graham might feel like a long shot, but let's be clear — if there’s any candidate who can pull it off, it’s Jaime.
Jaime was born the son of a single teenage mom and was raised by his grandparents. Growing up in poverty but in a community that helped each other, he promised his family he would go to law school and one day help those who helped him, and give back to those most vulnerable.
After receiving a scholarship to Yale University and then attending Georgetown Law, Jaime went on to make history by becoming the first African American chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, and he's running to do what Graham hasn’t: fight for opportunity for all South Carolinians.
We're helping Jaime build a grassroots people-powered campaign that focuses on getting out the critical base voters of Black, brown and progressive white voters Democrats need to mobilize and win in the South.
This isn’t just a chance to flip a historically conservative Senate seat from red to blue: it’s a critical opportunity to kick one of the most dangerous, Trump-defending Republicans out of office, and replace him with someone who will truly fight for the people of South Carolina.
And as an added bonus, every dime Republicans are forced to spend in South Carolina defending Graham is money they aren't spending on other Senate races or protecting Trump.
This race won't be easy, but it's worth it. We will win it because when we work together, we're unstoppable.
