Hello, I wanted to make sure you saw my message from the other day. If not, it's attached below and I'd really appreciate if you could give it a read.
It pains me to say this, but even after I reached out we are still $2,933 short of our public quarterly goal just 3 days away.
I know you are inundated with requests but I hope you can see that this one is different.
So I'm asking, will you rush even just a couple of dollars before it is too late?
Congressman Dr. Raul Ruiz

Subject: as a doctor, I'm asking for your help:
I'm a Congressman but I'm also a doctor.
There are 535 members of Congress and only 3 of us are Democratic doctors. That is just a miniscule .0056%.
Republicans repeatedly make wildly inaccurate medical claims to rip away access to health care or undermine a woman's right to choose.
That's when my voice in Congress is needed the most.
But without your donations, I will lose and be replaced by a Republican who will prioritize big dollar donors over the health of every American.
As a doctor, I REFUSE to let that happen. So please, chip in to help me raise the money I need to save my campaign >>
I know it can feel like you are being asked for money from every which way.
But being just 1 of 3 Democratic doctors in Congress, and the only Latino doctor in Congress, I hope this request stands out from the rest.
I became a doctor to help people. I ran for office because I knew that experience makes me uniquely qualified to help people as a Congressman.
Even if you can only chip in a single dollar, it will get me closer to defending my seat and continuing to fight for the health of all Americans. Make a contribution now >>
Sincerely hoping I can count on you.
