Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D. MT) in support of MJ Hegar’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
We can take back the Senate this year. And it starts with flipping Texas — yup, Texas.
MJ Hegar is a combat veteran and working mom running to unseat one of Trump’s favorite lackeys in Congress. A new poll has her within one point of her opponent, so she needs our help to close the gap — and fast.
Election forecasters have said Texas is one of the most important states this cycle and if we win here, we can flip the entire Senate.
That’s why Mitch McConnell’s network of right-wing donors are panicking and dumping millions of dollars to make sure battleground states like this stay red. They’ll do — and spend — whatever it takes to keep their grip on power.
We have to help MJ prepare for the nasty attacks that are sure to come her way. In 2018, this incredible team helped me fight back against the GOP’s massive attack machine. Now, I need you to do it again for MJ:
We could use a few more Senators with some grit around here.
I’m looking forward to working with MJ as we fight for affordable health care, an economy that works for everyone, and a government that responds to the people.
