Thank you

  Brandt — This afternoon, I called Senator Tillis to congratulate him on winning re-election to a second term in the U.S. Senate and wished him and his family the best in their continued service in the months and years ahead. The voters have spoken and I respect their decision. While…

Georgia

  Brandt, we have proven the pundits wrong and forced the GOP into a runoff election in Georgia on January 5. We've shown the country that a new South is coming — one that is bold, inclusive, and forward-thinking. And we've come one step closer to making history in Georgia. But I'll b…

Mitch McConnell’s last chance

  Brandt — As you know, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be our next President and Vice President. This was an incredible victory — all thanks to millions of grassroots supporters from across the country who fought long and hard to bring new leadership to Washington. Our work isn’t do…

One more Senate seat could go to Democrats

  Brandt — Our team is still working to make sure every single vote in North Carolina is counted. But today, I want to call your attention to another race that needs our help. In Georgia, if one candidate doesn’t get over 50% of the vote, the election goes to a run-off. That’s exactly…

Votes are still being counted

  Brandt, this isn’t over. As North Carolina’s votes are still being counted, it looks like there will be at least one runoff in Georgia. The Senate is still up for grabs. That’s why I’m asking you to split a contribution between us and Raphael Warnock’s campaign: If you've saved your…

Win in North Carolina and Democrats take back the Senate

  Win in North Carolina and Democrats take back the Senate. It’s that simple, Brandt. This is your absolute last chance to make a difference in this toss-up race. Don’t wake up tomorrow wishing you had done more — add your final donation of $1 or more before the polls close: If you've…

So close

  When we started this campaign, Brandt — the political pundits didn’t think we stood a chance. But look at how far we’ve come. Without you, we wouldn’t have been able to fend off Mitch McConnell’s network of super PACs and corporate megadonors spending more than $80 million to defeat…

Last minute

  You heard our campaign manager this morning, Brandt — We missed our fundraising goal yesterday just as Washington Republicans launched last-minute attacks against Cal, which means we’re rushing this afternoon to get back on track. People are voting across North Carolina, and undecid…

I took a big risk

  Brandt, I just made a make-or-break decision for our campaign. You see, we barely missed our fundraising goal last night. But I didn’t want to take our foot off the gas when it comes to getting our message out to undecided voters in these final hours, so I went full steam ahead with…

This can’t wait

re: Final

What I just told our fundraising team

“toss-up”

  I’m sure I don’t need to tell you this, Brandt, but things are really heating up in North Carolina — and the attention on our race will only increase in the last 48 hours of this election. Especially with Donald Trump making two more last-minute visits to shore up support and boost …

money in the bank
