Received this e-mail today from ALS & Medicare For All activist, Ady Barkan, in support of Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
Hi, I’m Ady Barkan.
Earlier this week, I was proud to give my endorsement for Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez.
I have spent my entire career building organizations & movements to fight for social justice. So when I was diagnosed with ALS in 2016 — I made a choice to spend my time pushing for policies & candidates we need to create real change in our country.
Cristina is exactly the kind of candidate we need if we want to defeat John Cornyn, turn Texas blue, and end the shameful politics we're currently witnessing from the Senate.
This election calls for democratic candidates who won’t just nibble at the margins & reverse Trump’s despicable policies — but have a robust vision for what is possible.
Cristina has made it clear she is the best candidate in this race to do just that.
She has years of experience building broad, multi-racial coalitions, fighting for the rights of working people, standing up to the corrupt, special interests that have warped our politics, and inspiring young people to vote.
She is committed to leading the fight to pass Medicare for All and make sure Americans like me have the health care I rely on to live, bringing back humanity to our immigration system, and saving the planet from our climate crisis.
And I believe her story & message speaks to the very Texans who have too often been ignored & left behind by John Cornyn’s politics. When those Texans are engaged and vote — there is no doubt we will defeat him next November.
Please join me in supporting Cristina by chipping in to her campaign. They need to raise at least $5,000 today to keep organizing and spreading their bold, progressive message to every corner of Texas.
