an urgent request

  Folks, we’ve got to make a quick request for you since our end-of-month goal is just one day away. The truth is, fundraising has slowed significantly this quarter. While we're disappointed, frankly we're not surprised. The holidays are a notoriously difficult period for fundrais…

my friend Lisa Blunt Rochester

Hi folks, it's John Fetterman – that tall bald guy from PA 👋 I'm reaching out for my friend, Lisa Blunt Rochester, because she said you'd like to hear from me. But, if you're tight on time, don't worry about it – all I ask is that you chip in to support her campaign for Senate in Del…

Emailing for $5

Friend – I’m about to ask you to contribute $5 to keep Delaware and the Senate blue – but first, there are a few things you should know: Democrats are defending a 51-49 Senate majority. Republicans are all but guaranteed to flip West Virginia red, which leaves ONE SEAT remaining to …

2 seats is all it takes

  Team, we're not being dramatic when we say that this race could determine the Senate Majority in 2024. Next year, Republicans will only have to defend 11 seats while Democrats will have to defend a whopping 23 seats. That includes Delaware! All Republicans need to retake the Sena…

Let’s send an unmistakable message

  I’ll cut to the chase, team: Right now, there’s a lot of uncertainty around our race. We have two MAGA Republican opponents, but we still don't know who we'll be up against in 2024. But there is one thing we know for certain: the stakes are even higher now that West Virginia has …

Mike Johnson's radical agenda

  This is urgent, team: the new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, revealed his extremist agenda of stripping away our personal freedoms. He and other House Republicans are putting pressure on the Supreme Court to ban same-sex marriage and the use of contraception while endorsing …

Not another Black Friday deal

Happy Thanksgiving, friends

Friend, from my family to yours, we're wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it gives us time to decompress before the New Year, spend time with our loved ones, and reflect on what we're thankful for. For me, that's my two kids (th…

I just made a tough call

The name-calling

Folks, when you’re a Black woman in politics, you get called all kinds of names. Some nice, some not-so-nice, and some that I won’t even repeat here. But I’m also proud to be called a mom, grandma, and Congresswoman. I decided to run for Congress back in 2016 to give Delaware the rep…

I'm stressed

Hello, I’m stressed. My finance team just called me to let me know we’re still $23,736 short of our November fundraising goal—this is especially bad news because national Republican groups are attacking me earlier than ever before. Before I explain any more, I wanted to ask: Is ther…

I can't be everyone's cup of tea

I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, friend. That’s a hard lesson you learn very early on as a Black woman in politics. I know I’m not going to win every single vote when I’m on the ballot – and that’s okay. So even if I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, I’ll represent all of my constitu…

This is troubling

I’ve served Delaware for over 30 years – first as an intern for then-Congressman Carper, and then as a member of Congress. Throughout my career, I've always relied on science, data, and hard facts to make tough decisions. Right now, the facts tell me that Democrats are in serious tro…
