Received this e-mail from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D. NJ), in support of Jaime Harrison’s (D. SC) U.S. Senate campaign:
Some good news I wanted to share with you: a brand new poll shows Jaime Harrison in a virtual tie with his opponent, Senator Lindsey Graham in South Carolina's U.S. Senate race.
Lindsey Graham (R-inc) – 44%
Jaime Harrison (D) – 44%
Poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, Jul 30 – Aug 3
My friend Jaime is on track to make history this November: if he can pull through and win this critical race, not only will he help flip the Senate, but he'll be the first Black Democratic U.S. Senator in South Carolina's history.
I've known Jaime for a long time — dating back to our time at Yale together — and I've been lucky to call him a friend ever since. He didn't grow up with much but was determined not to let that slow him down. He worked hard, became the first person in his family to graduate college, and self-started his career. And through it all, he became a leader in the community that supported him.
For too long, South Carolinians have gone unheard and their needs unmet by an incumbent more worried about pushing President Trump's extreme agenda than solving the issues facing his constituents. Jaime's ready to change that, and with your help, he can do the unthinkable and win.
Jaime's tied in this super competitive race right now thanks to a massive outpouring of grassroots support from people like you. Will you help keep up the momentum to send Jaime to Washington and flip the Senate by splitting a contribution between our campaigns today?
I can't wait to call Jaime my colleague next year.
