Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MA), in support of MJ Hegar’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
Something's happening in Texas.
The latest polls there have Joe Biden and Donald Trump just a few points apart. In one from a few weeks ago, Joe Biden is actually ahead. In Texas.
And you know whose approval ratings are dropping? John Cornyn — the GOP Texas senator up for re-election this November.
MJ Hegar is running against him, and I'm proud to support her. She's got a real chance to win in November and help Democrats take the Senate. But first, she needs to win her primary this Tuesday, and she needs support from this grassroots team.
If you're able to support candidates financially right now, will you split a donation between MJ Hegar and our re-election campaign today? $15 or whatever you can contribute would make a real difference to help elect MJ and lift up Democratic candidates across the country.
As a decorated combat veteran and working mom who has lived through many of the challenges facing Texans, MJ is a proven fighter.
She will ensure every Texan has affordable health care, economic opportunity, and a government that works for people — not corporate special interests and billionaires.
At a time when working families are being squeezed to their breaking point, we need fighters in the United States Senate like MJ Hegar who embody strength, courage, independence, and an unwavering commitment to putting families first. She will fight for real results for the people of Texas.
And by building a well-funded grassroots organization in 2020, MJ will also lift up the entire Democratic ticket in Texas — including candidates in toss-up races for the U.S. House and state and local positions.
A donation to MJ is an investment in a whole host of candidates who can flip seats across Texas. And by splitting your contribution with Warren Democrats, you can help elect leaders across the country who know we need big ideas and bold reform — to root out corruption and put people first.
Thanks for being a part of this,
