Received this e-mail from U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D. OH) in support of MJ Hegar’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
I have great news: MJ Hegar won her primary election in Texas earlier this week and we have an opportunity to make her the next senator from the Lone Star state.
Winning in Texas means we can flip the Senate Majority and remove Mitch McConnell from power, and we can’t protect the Dignity of Work, health care, Medicare, and Social Security without the Majority.
This isn’t going to be easy though — Vox says the Senate seat in Texas is going to be tough to flip, and MJ’s race is among the top 10 most expensive races in the country. Money is flowing in from the NRA, Big Pharma, and the insurance industry, because special interests want to stop MJ in her tracks.
Here’s the good news: MJ is the right candidate to take on a tough fight.
MJ is a veteran who got a Purple Heart after her helicopter was shot down. She fought to expand combat roles for women in the military and won. And now, she’s building a strong grassroots network and huge momentum for her campaign.
And it’s working — MJ got through the primary and even shifted the race rating in her favor.
But every dollar matters in a race as competitive as this. If you’re able to chip in a few dollars, please split a contribution today to help MJ flip this critical red seat and take back the Senate in November.
