How we can make a difference today

  John, I am still struggling to come to terms with the Supreme Court’s rollback of abortion rights. But there is no time to rest: Americans right now are in need of all types of health care — including an abortion. If you can, I urge you to volunteer your time and efforts to helping …

The end of Roe

  John, This is a heartbreaking day. The hurt of too many is inexpressible. The pain and the fear and the grief and anger, and the outrage, and outrage, and outrage.  And yet, we know:  This is not a time to curl up, give up or shut up. It is time to get up; to stand up, to speak up. …

The NRSC was just caught lying

  Huge news, John: The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) was caught lying about my record on the air, and in response, TV stations across North Carolina pulled down their attack ad against me. This is extremely rare in campaigns, and it speaks to how dirty the NRSC is g…

We have never gotten this close to passing gun safety legislation

  John, Last night, my Senate colleagues introduced bipartisan legislation outlining the first major gun safety reforms with a chance of becoming law in decades. Earlier this week, I joined The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about this very issue. Please watch our conversation…

I hate sending this email

  John, I’d prefer not to email asking you for money. My focus is on fighting for common-sense gun legislation, action on climate change, protecting reproductive rights, and lowering costs. The reality is that Cory and I cannot continue that work if I lose my reelection and we lose ou…

Preparing before our online fundraising slows down this summer

  John — we have just 10 days until this quarter’s FEC fundraising deadline. Can you donate $10? Here’s why your donation is so important: 10 days from now, my team will prepare a public report that our campaign files with the Federal Election Commission. Every dollar we’ve raised for…

Joy on Juneteenth

  John, today is Juneteenth — and I feel joy. Joy that last year the Senate unanimously passed legislation to make Juneteenth a federal holiday, which President Biden quickly signed into law. Joy for seeing the struggle and sacrifice of our ancestors manifest itself across our country…

Missing My Dad

  John, This Father’s Day weekend, I really miss my dad. He brought such energy to this world and I think it came from his deep soulfulness. My dad experienced hardship and pain and sorrows in his life that I perhaps will never experience and in a way, it enabled him to experience th…

We lift each other up

  Let me explain what running a people-powered campaign truly means, John. I don't take a dime from corporate lobbyists, fossil fuel executives, or Big Pharma executives because I'm not in the Senate to represent private industries or special interest groups. I'm there to represent th…

All hands on deck

  Can we explain something, John? June marks the end of the fundraising quarter, which means it’s a crucial month for our campaign. We’re up against one of our last major FEC deadlines before Election Day — and with Democrats’ Senate majority hanging in the balance, it’s never been mo…

We need to send a powerful message

  Hi John, I’ll keep this as brief as possible. I only have a few hours left to fundraise until our mid-month deadline. Can you pitch in a few dollars now to help us reach our goal? If you've saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediatel…

Trump’s handpicked candidate Adam Laxalt (R)

  It’s GAMETIME, John: the general election is officially underway in the most important Senate race of 2022! Catherine Cortez Masto (D) is facing off against Trump-endorsed Adam Laxalt (R) – and if she loses, it’s game over for our Senate majority. That’s why I’m personally asking yo…

Counting on your support

  John, This is an important week - it marks our final mid-month fundraising push before the end of the second quarter. Which means that after June 30th, the Federal Election Commission will release our fundraising numbers, and Mitch McConnell and his allies will be poring over our fi…

A short Saturday note

  John, I know, I know... it’s Saturday, so I’ll keep this short. I’m reaching out because we’re approaching a major fundraising deadline at the end of this month. After we close the books on June 30, our fundraising numbers from the last three months will become public for everyone t…

Cruelty, incompetence, and corruption

Help me ensure we have the resources to reach every Texas voter and ensure they know the cost and consequence of keeping Abbott in office, and our opportunity to choose a better future for ourselves and our kids.   Dear John, Last month made it more clear than ever that if we care abou…

A reckoning of Trump’s attack on our democracy

  John, Tonight marks the beginning of the January 6 House Select Committee’s first public hearings. Soon, we will hopefully gain a clearer picture of the events of last year’s deadly insurrection — as we continue to pursue truth, justice, and accountability. As my colleagues in the o…

Cory told me about the Booker Book Club

  Hi John, it's Tim Ryan. My opponent for Ohio’s Senate seat, JD Vance, is Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene’s handpicked candidate. He has turned his fame as an author into an extreme political platform. I know Cory just started a book club, but Vance is not an author I would recommen…

The summer slump

This won’t be an easy week.

  I won’t sugar coat it, John: This won’t be an easy week. On Thursday evening, the House Select Committee will begin public hearings looking into the January 6th attack on our Capitol to prevent the certification of the 2020 election results. And we have to be ready. Right-wing media…

Can you help us stay on track?

Why we need a Democratic Senate

  Hi John, it’s Cory. We have an important deadline tonight. To achieve the kind of change we all want to see in this country, we need to keep and expand our Democratic Senate majority. It’s that simple. The arc of the moral universe does not bend toward justice with inevitability — w…

Another School Shooting in America

Louis DeJoy
