hey

  Hey — I’ll keep this really short. In just a few hours, we’re hitting our end of the month fundraising deadline. We’re still short and have some ground to make up. Every dollar we don’t raise is a dollar we can’t use for efforts like helping vulnerable members of Congress, shoring u…

The crises we face.

  John, Every day, it feels as if we’re facing a crisis. And that didn’t end when Donald Trump finally left office. Americans across the country are enduring the direct consequences of climate change. Sweltering heat waves and scorching temperatures are causing needless deaths and spa…

Closing the gap

  John, This is important — House Republicans have an almost $10 million cash advantage over Democrats in the first six months of 2021 in the race for the House majority. With less than 48 hours until our end of month fundraising deadline — will you pitch in $10 right now to help clos…

Relentless.

  John — When you stand up for decency, for truth, and for our democracy – a fire-hose of right-wing disinformation seems to follow. Tucker Carlson went after my character. Sean Hannity referred to me as “the congenital liar.” Rudy Giuliani called me a liar – pot calling the kettle bl…

We will remember

  John, Over the past seven months, we’ve accomplished so much in the face of all-out Republican obstructionism by Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy. We passed the American Rescue Plan Act which increased the monthly Child Tax Credit up to $300 per child, expanded health care coverag…

Billionaires in space

  John, Let’s take a second and imagine a world where billionaires and corporations paid their fair share in taxes. Instead of billionaires rocketing into space we could: End child poverty. Cancel student debt for millions of Americans. Rebuild public infrastructure. Fight climate cha…

Nightmare

  John, as you may have seen, today was a busy day. But I’m not emailing about that. I’m emailing about the state of our democracy, and where we go from here. The GOP has fully succumbed to the takeover of their party by the former president, to his lies, and to his cult of personalit…

please give me a chance to explain

  Gubernatorial recall ballots start arriving in Californians' mailboxes in just a few weeks. It’s absolutely critical we defeat this Republican recall. We must ensure California remains the epicenter of progressive and Democratic politics. That’s why my friend Adam Schiff asked me t…

Add your name: Protect DACA

  John — The American Dream belongs to all of us, including those who came here as children. But a federal judge’s ruling in Texas has put that future in jeopardy for hundreds of thousands of Dreamers — and it’s up to Congress to act before their case reaches the Supreme Court. Please…

re: the Republican Recall

We need to make a statement

  John — Two important things just happened that you need to know: First, over 90 percent of families received their first monthly payment of the expanded Child Tax Credit in the American Rescue Plan – which Mitch McConnell bragged "not a single member of my party voted for." That's t…

A strong response

  John — I have a request — we have our first fundraising deadline of the 2022 election season tonight at midnight. With a strong response in the next few hours, I’m certain that we can hit our target. It’s critical, and I’ll tell you why in a moment. But first I'm asking for your hel…

I wish we hadn’t been right about this:

  During the first impeachment, we chose our words about Donald Trump carefully, knowing that history would be our judge. We said it for the Senate and the world to hear: "He has compromised our elections, and he will do so again. You will not change him. You cannot constrain him. He …

Texas Democrats

  John — Texas House Democrats showed real courage this week. Under threat of arrest, they left Texas to deny the Republican majority a quorum and stop the passage of discriminatory voter suppression legislation. They deserve our support — and our action. The Texas House Democrats are…

What is at stake:

  John — We’re at a dangerous impasse. Every single day, Republicans are trying to make it harder to vote. They continue to propagate the Big Lie. Just last month, they filibustered critical voting rights and democracy protection bills. And last week, their members were caught behind …

re: Trump’s speech at CPAC attacked Adam

    Donald Trump was obsessed with Adam during his CPAC speech last night. Viciously attacking him three times – calling for Adam to be investigated, to lose his law license and job, and claiming his words are “pure bullshit.” Unreal. Trump won’t silence Adam. He won’t be det…

QAnon is targeting Adam. Again.

You won’t believe this. Seriously.

  "18 more months of chaos and the inability to get stuff done, that's what we want.” — Texas GOP Congressman Chip Roy That is how Republicans are talking about their “jobs” behind closed doors — these latest comments were captured on a hidden camera just a week ago. It’s insidious. I…

Investigating Jan. 6

re: deadline

Personally asking —

Donald Trump is once again attacking me personally

  John — Donald Trump is once again back on the road, and during a rally this weekend he told a crowd of thousands in Ohio that he thinks I’m “the worst.” Look, I’ve got some pretty thick skin after years of being personally vilified and attacked by the former president and his allie…

  Hey there, John — I wanted to take a moment to send you a note about the FEC deadline that’s coming up on Wednesday. Look, it’s no secret that Donald Trump and the talking heads at Fox News have bashed me relentlessly over the years to incite the fury of their right-wing base. So Na…

Our 5-seat House majority

    John — we’re heading into the 2022 midterms with a 5-vote House majority, and a razor-thin 50-50 Senate margin. Historically, the president’s party loses an average of 26 House seats and 4 Senate seats in the midterms. That means we need every dollar possible to defend ou…

The For the People Act failed, here’s why:

The AR-15 is not a Swiss Army Knife
