We wrote you yesterday about Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' plan “to reestablish a World War II-era civilian military force that he, not the Pentagon, would control,” according to CNN. DeSantis refuses to specify what he will order the force to do aside from “emergency response,” threatening that it will be able to “mobilize very, very quickly.”
Remember, folks, DeSantis recently called for a dedicated police force to “investigate election crimes and fraud,” according to the Associated Press. In reality, this force would disqualify thousands of valid votes from Democratic women over the age of 60 who rely on ballot drop-boxes. That's because Democratic women over 60 are voting in larger numbers than any other demographic in Florida, and now they're rallying behind Val Demings' campaign for Senate.
Today we're asking you directly to rush in an urgent donation to help us elect Val Demings to the Senate and shift the political tide against DeSantis' hyper-militarized right-wing authoritarianism by expanding our 50/50 Majority and ending the GOP's partisan filibuster. If you haven't already, can you please rush in $10 to bolster Val Demings and all our brave Democrat challengers & defending incumbents right now?
Val Demings was just two points behind in this race until the GOP's on-call millionaire donors cut Rubio's campaign a blank check last month. And today, with control of the Senate, voting rights protections, and abortion rights hanging in the balance, we are still $5,000 of our goal to protect Demings.
Without your help, folks, we'll be forced to leave Val's campaign defenseless, handing DeSantis and Rubio unchecked power to further suppress our votes and militarize our country. Will you take a moment to donate right now and help us give Val the tools to fight back, expand our 50/50 Senate Majority, and end the filibuster to protect our voting rights?

Val Demings is counting on us, folks. Thanks for proving we've got her back.
