Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I. VT) in support of his colleagues, U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D. WI) & Tina Smith’s (D. MN) re-election campaigns:
Kevin Cramer, the Republican candidate in a top-tier U.S. Senate race had a pretty dire warning about the stakes in this election. He said:
“If Democrats take control of the United States Senate, the Chairman of the Budget Committee will be Bernie Sanders.”
That sounds like a good idea to us. Let’s take back the Senate.
But accomplishing that goal requires winning a few tough races and electing strong progressives like Tina Smith in Minnesota and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin.
A few polls have these races pretty close. Within single digits. So your support today could mean the difference between victory and defeat. The difference between a Democratic Senate and a Republican one. The difference between Budget Chairman Mike Enzi or Chairman Bernie Sanders.
Thanks for chipping in,
