All eyes are on Virginia in these final days

  Hey John, What happens in Virginia’s gubernatorial election in just a few weeks will have major implications for the midterms next year and elections for years to come. In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a critical $10 donation to help Terry McAuliffe keep Virginia blue in ju…

It’s up to us

It’s abundantly clear, the GOP is successfully making the early investments needed to win back the House and Senate. The question is, how will Democrats respond?   John, This past Friday, every federal campaign in the country reported their fundraising numbers from the last three month…

The truth about this grassroots team

  John, When Adam talks about this grassroots team, he means it when he says we have the power to swing elections. There aren’t many Democrats in the country like Adam — with a group of supporters and grassroots donors so large and strong, they can rightly claim to have helped take ba…

Electing new and incumbent Democrats

Building a national network of grassroots Democrats isn't cheap, but it's incredibly necessary to defend and expand our majorities in 2022.   John – Adam is working around the clock in Congress. To pass the infrastructure and Build Back Better bills. To lift the debt ceiling and preven…

Here’s the truth

  John, I’m very proud of the progress we’ve made over the past year, but there’s still so much more work to be done. The truth is that we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to bring about real change for the American people, and we need to bring our party together to make it hap…

Trump rally in Iowa today

He attacked me personally two weeks ago at his rally in Georgia and I wouldn’t be surprised if he does it again today.   John, Donald Trump is on his way to Iowa for his next rally right now. All signs are pointing toward a third Trump presidential campaign in 2024, and his Iowa rally …

Trump is kicking off his comeback tour in Iowa – and Sen. Grassley is right beside him

  It's happening, John: Donald Trump is back in Iowa for a rally, and Sen. Grassley will be sharing the stage with him. This is an urgent moment for our campaign, for Iowa and our country, and my friend Rep. Adam Schiff and I were hoping you'll allow me a minute to explain why. I ser…

Trump’s 2024 campaign begins

Donald Trump is holding a rally in Iowa tomorrow to spread his Big Lie, stir up controversy, and fire up his right-wing base.   John, Donald Trump is holding a rally in Iowa tomorrow, effectively beginning his 2024 presidential run. And, although it is impossible to fathom, he’s more p…

Say it with me: Abolish. The. Filibuster.

  John — It’s time to abolish the filibuster. Here’s why: In 2020, we witnessed record-breaking voter turnout and an outpouring of support for Democratic reforms including voting rights, reproductive rights, climate action, criminal justice and immigration reform, and so much more. Ho…

checking in

  John, We’ve been through a lot over the past month and truthfully, things aren’t slowing down one bit. Democrats have a few short weeks to address the looming debt ceiling and prevent the first-ever U.S. default which could lead to an economic catastrophe. The GOP would rather torpe…

Re: Georgia’s Senate seat

If we fail, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy will turn Washington over to an authoritarian cult of personality beholden not to our democracy, but to a man in Mar-a-Lago — Donald Trump.   John, Washington has been busy lately — as we negotiate over voting rights, reconciliation, and a…

You’ve been hearing from us a lot -- here’s why:

I’m running to defeat Sen. Grassley and defend our Senate majority

Fwd: The Protecting Our Democracy Act

  John — Adam is reintroducing the Protecting Our Democracy Act — a bill designed to prevent abuses of presidential power and stop future presidents from abusing the office like Trump. Our democracy remains vulnerable to Trump and the GOP’s autocratic impulses. This is important — sig…

Holding the president accountable no matter who is in office

  John, Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election saved our democracy — but without strong legislative reforms, that lifeline may only be temporary. Donald Trump’s time in the White House took a devastating toll on our democracy. On the rule of law. And on the truth. All because of one…

John, by the time you finish reading this, someone will have chipped in $5 to this email. They’re hoping you will, too.

    Adam’s character has been relentlessly under assault by the GOP, Fox News, and fringe figures as of late. Why? Because he stands up for the truth and our democracy. With Trump coming back on the scene and gearing up for a 2024 presidential run, we’re going to need a lot o…

Some thoughts

  John, In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make your first contribution to our campaign before our end-of-quarter deadline. Your support can, and will, have an important impact on the 2022 midterms. But first I want to explain why it’s so crucial: This week, we defeated the Republic…

The Freedom to Vote Act

  John, If Mitch McConnell has his way, the Senate isn’t going to lift a finger to protect voting rights from the right-wing assault Republican legislatures are waging across the country. And as long as Democrats in the Senate refuse to abolish the filibuster, that’s exactly what is g…

An embarrassment to our country

  John, Donald Trump’s path back to the White House depends on delegitimizing our democracy — and with his Republican base, it appears to be working. A CNN poll out this week showed that 59% of self-identified Republicans say “believing that Donald Trump won the 2020 election” is impo…

Trump’s recall election lies

Republicans are no longer committed to democracy

Did you see Gavin Newsom’s final message before the recall?

re: Texas abortion ban
