Can I count on you?

  John, Our monthly fundraising deadline is tonight, and I want to take a moment to let you know why your contributions are so important. Before my election in 2018, Republicans held this seat for almost half a century. They are desperate to take it back in 2022, and they a…

A serious challenge

🌱 Our first deadline is hours away 🌱

  John, In 2020, we won this election by fewer than two points. National Republican groups spent millions of dollars on ads attacking my campaign and me. Now, in the first quarter of 2021, they have already started running attack ads against me and phonebanking into our dis…

The fragility of our democracy
