Can you rush a $5 donation before midnight?

Christy Smith for Congress         John, I know my campaign has been emailing you a lot lately. And by now, you probably know about Mike Garcia raising hundreds of thousands of dollars from PACs and other special interest groups. You know about him hiding his stock investm…

This time, we’re going to win

Christy Smith for Congress         Hi John, $22.03 That's the average grassroots contribution to our campaign. That's $5 here from a retired schoolteacher and $40 there from a union electrician. It's folks like you giving a little bit when they can. It's the kind of do…

The gap is closing

Christy Smith for Congress         John, We know you’re getting a ton of emails right now so we’ll keep this short. In 2020, Christy was only 333 votes away from winning. We’ve crunched the numbers and know what we need to close the gap this cycle. We are only $8,543 away…

Asking for $5

Christy Smith for Congress         John, There are only five seats that separate Republicans from gaining back control of the House. Yes, you read that right -- Republicans are only five seats away from taking control of the House, and the stakes could not be higher. Joh…

We are long overdue

Christy Smith for Congress         John, Let's be honest: Christy isn't taking a cent from corporate PACs. This campaign is all about grassroots supporters like you -- not wealthy donors and special interests. Now Mike Garcia on the other hand? He's on the trail lying to …

This is truly unforgivable

$193,881.49

Christy Smith for Congress         John, $193,881.49 -- that's how much Mike Garcia took from PACs and special interest groups just last quarter. Let's cut to the point -- Mike Garcia outraised me last quarter, but it was thanks in large part to the generous help of his …

Mike Garcia’s voting record is trash

Christy Smith for Congress         John, We can answer that: yes, it will be. And that’s because Mike Garcia has zero interest in passing legislation that helps our community here in CA-25. Just look at his voting record this past year:   Mike Garcia has co…
