Received this e-mail today from civil rights hero, Rep. John Lewis (D. GA-05), in support of Jaime Harrison’s (D. SC) U.S. Senate campaign:
My team just showed me an incredible new poll.
Lindsey Graham is nearly tied with his Democratic opponent, Jaime Harrison.
Defeating Graham is our best hope to take back the Senate for Democrats, Sam.
This President and his cronies like Lindsey Graham are a threat to the Democracy I’ve fought to protect for my entire career.
So we MUST vote Graham out and send someone with a brighter vision for our country’s future to Congress in his place.
Democrat Jaime Harrison is our best hope to take back the Senate for Democrats and put this nation back on track.
But he can’t defeat Lindsey Graham without grassroots Democrats behind him.
This President and Lindsey Graham have made it their mission to dismantle the Constitutional rights of millions of Americans.
They’ve endangered women, people of color, LGBTQ+ Americans, immigrants, low-income Americans, those with disabilities, and countless others.
If we don’t take back the Senate for Democrats in 2O2O, I fear for our nation’s future.
Together, we can defeat Lindsey Graham, once and for all.
We can, and we must. Thank you for doing your part.
Congressman John Lewis
