John – in a moment, I'm going to ask you to help me hit my critical end-of-month goal. I can't afford to miss this goal if we want to keep the Senate blue. Here's why:
1. Just days after Mitch McConnell's handpicked candidate entered the race to defeat me, Donald Trump gave his “complete and total” endorsement to my right-wing opponent.
2. The Cook Political Report downgraded my chances of winning – and now, CNN is calling Nevada a top pickup opportunity for Republicans.
3. Nevada could decide control of the Senate, and Mitch McConnell is all in on flipping this seat, John. Outside groups have already spent more than $1 million to defeat me – and the Senate Republican campaign arm just hauled in $28 million over the last few months that it could drop into Nevada at any moment.
Our razor-thin Senate majority is on the line, and I cannot let the GOP continue to outspend me in this must-win race. I cannot miss this midnight goal. But as of 9 a.m., I'm still falling short.
I narrowly won by just two points in 2016, and that was because of grassroots supporters like you chipping in at critical moments like this one. Now, I need you more than ever, John, so I am personally asking:
Please, can I count on you to rush $5 or more to reach my end-of-month goal before it's too late? Every dollar you give will help defend Nevada's Senate seat and our Democratic majority.
Thank you so much for being a part of this grassroots team. Because of you, I know we can meet this goal and protect this critical seat and our Senate majority.
