Received this e-mail today from Veteran MJ Hegar’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
When you look at the career politicians claiming to represent us in DC, do you see Texas values reflected back? Let’s review some of the votes Senator John Cornyn has taken since being elected nearly 20 years ago, because they’ll likely inform your answer:
- Senator Cornyn voted to gut protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions and allow insurance companies to charge older Americans more for health care coverage.
- He voted to slash taxes for the wealthiest earners and corporationswhile doing next to nothing for middle-class and working families.
- He voted to nullify financial protections that would benefit deployed service members.
- And when a bipartisan immigration bill passed the Senate with more than a two-thirds majority, Senator Cornyn joined his most entrenched DC colleagues to vote against it.
If you’re ready for a Texas where everyone is finally heard, then MJ needs you with her in this campaign!
Senator Cornyn has plenty of deep-pocketed support from corporate PAC donors, but MJ is relying on you. That’s because she’s running to serve Texans, and not out-of-touch special interests. So friend, will you help us power this grassroots campaign and defeat Senator Cornyn by making your first donation today?
