John -- congratulations are in order for my friend and colleague, Michigan Sen. Gary Peters -- the new Chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Gary is a fifth-generation Michigander, a veteran, a champion for workers and the environment, and an effective leader. He understands firsthand what it takes to win highly competitive and expensive races in battleground states as he just won re-election in Michigan, and I look forward to working with him to protect and expand our Democratic Senate Majority in 2022.
The race for the Senate has already begun, and we're counting on your grassroots support every step of the way. If you are able, will you split a contribution between the DSCC and my campaign before the end-of-month deadline tomorrow?
President Joe Biden has already taken important steps to get the pandemic under control, restore our country's commitment to climate action, strengthen job opportunities, ensure living wages for workers, and achieve racial equality and justice for all Americans.
Expanding our Senate Majority is essential to advancing President Biden's agenda to build back our country better and stronger than before. It's also crucial to combating Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's obstruction in the Senate.

But we're in for a tough fight -- our Majority is as narrow as can be. Membership is split 50-50 with Vice President Kamala Harris serving as a critical tie-breaking vote.
With a new open red Senate seat in Ohio along with open races in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, we have a path to strengthening our Majority, but there's no doubt about it -- it's going to be a competitive and expensive fight.
Election Day 2022 might seem far off, but we need to start organizing now if we're going to build on our success from last year. If you can, split a contribution between the DSCC and my campaign before midnight tomorrow. Even $5 makes a difference.
