Hey everyone —
I had an extra few minutes this morning so I wanted to share a few thoughts with you.
Look, there are a number of you receiving this email who have been with me since before my first run for Congress. There are a number of you who joined at some point in the last few elections. And, if we’re being honest, there are a lot of folks reading this email wondering if I’ll challenge Kyrsten Sinema in 2024.
Here’s the truth:
No matter why you are reading this, I am thankful for you.
People like me don’t often make it to Congress.
I’m the son of Latino immigrants, who, with my three sisters, was raised by my single mother. I was the first in my family to attend college, cleaning the toilets of my classmates to make it work, and I joined the Marine Corps after graduating and went to Iraq.
The only reason I am here is because of the support I’ve had along the way.
As a kid, the support from my family.
In combat, the support of my fellow Marines.
In these campaigns, support from people like you.
But now I have a new mission: winning reelection this November. And that’s not something I can do alone.
I need your help. So please:
Thank you in advance for chipping in before this deadline ends. It means a lot.
