For Christy, it's personal

Christy Smith for Congress         Hey John, we wanted to make sure you saw this powerful video of Christy telling her personal story at the Women's March last year — it's now more relevant than ever:   For Christy and for so many child-bearing people across the c…

We will not go down without a fight

Christy Smith for Congress         Hi John, Last week, my two daughters woke up to a world where they have fewer rights than I had at their age. The overturning of Roe vs. Wade marks a seismic and terrifying shift for the state of our country, our democracy, and the lives …

I'll make this quick —

Christy Smith for Congress     Listen, John, I need to ask a huge favor before midnight. We’re hours away from our June FEC end-of-quarter deadline and we’re still falling short of our $50,000 goal. With Mike Garcia and his dark money special interest allies keeping a close eye on …

The math isn't mathing

Christy Smith for Congress         Hi John, I know you're busy so I'm only going to take 30 seconds of your time. Right now, I'm a little worried. Our June FEC end-of-quarter deadline is tomorrow at midnight and right now, our numbers aren't adding up.   With rep…

Combatting Mike Garcia's far-right extremism and billionaire donors

Christy Smith for Congress         John, We're going to get straight to the point: our ActBlue numbers aren't where we need them ahead of our FEC end-of-quarter deadline, especially with the devastating news of the overturning of Roe v. Wade. It is more important than eve…

Mike Garcia wants to send us back

Christy Smith for Congress         Hi John, Friday's SCOTUS ruling overturning Roe v. Wade is devastating. It puts millions of lives at risk, and imposes untold suffering, particularly among poor and Black and Brown people. But on Friday, Mike Garcia was cheering. For him…

It's not just an abortion restriction. It's an attack on our bodily autonomy.

Christy Smith for Congress         Hi John, I wish I could say I was surprised, but I'm not. The Supreme Court officially overturned Roe v. Wade, and with it went any national protections securing our right to abortion. I'm angry. Really angry. And seeing anti-choice Re…

Midnight tonight

Christy Smith for Congress         John, I want to tell you why Mike Garcia is so bad for this district. But first, I have an important question: Will you chip in $5 or more before our midnight deadline to make sure we hit our mid-month fundraising goal? If you've saved yo…

3️⃣3️⃣3️⃣ votes

Christy Smith for Congress         John, when we say every vote matters, we mean it. In 2020, Mike Garcia only beat Christy by only 333 votes. If every single person reading this email had turned out and voted, Chisty would have won. CA-27 is one of the most flippable dis…
