Received this e-mail from the Giffords PAC in support of Jaime Harrison’s (D. SC) campaign:
We’re excited to announce that we just endorsed another gun safety candidate running for U.S. Senate: Jaime Harrison in South Carolina!
Jaime Harrison’s commitment to commonsense gun safety is personal. He lost his friend Clem and 8 others when a white supremacist attacked Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston in 2015.
Jaime is up against Lindsey Graham who has spent years in the pocket of the NRA enacting their dangerous legislative agenda.
Lindsey Graham is one of the NRA’s biggest allies, and Jaime is running to flip his seat and send a clear message: it’s time for the Senate to step up and pass laws that will save lives.
2020 is the year that we can elect a gun safety majority in the Senate — we only need to flip three or four seats to do it. We’re doing our part to elect these candidates, but your support would go a long way.
This endorsement is crucial. The current Senate majority is doing everything within its power to prevent common sense gun legislation from becoming law.
Jaime has a tough road ahead. Lindsey Graham has the backing of powerful special interest groups and the gun lobby. We need Jaime in the Senate to stand with us in the fight against gun violence.
With your support, we can help Jaime flip this South Carolina Senate seat and be a champion in the fight against gun violence.
Thank you for your support,
The team at Giffords
