Our race just moved closer to a toss-up

Another political ranking group downgraded Michael’s Senate race closer to a toss-up.   We have a critical update for our top supporters: The Cook Political Report just moved Michael’s Senate race closer to a toss-up. This change doesn’t mean the sky is falling, but this race went in…

12 weeks out...

We don’t like to beg for donations or use scare tactics like “the sky is falling.”   We’re just 12 weeks out from Election Day and Coloradans receive their mail-in ballots in just 9 weeks. That means we have less than 9 weeks to reach voters about Michael’s progress securing tax cuts …

I'm your nominee for U.S Senate for Vermont

  We did it. I’m officially the nominee in Vermont for U.S. Senate.  I was just a kid when I dropped out of college and hitchhiked to Chicago to organize against housing discrimination. That choice set me on a path to public service and led me to this moment. Every victory since then…

We fell short by 50 donors, team

We’re short of where we should be at this point in the month.   Rreaching out with a quick request: My team just told me we missed our mid-month goal by 50 supporters, folks. A recent poll put me within a single digit margin of my opponent who has the full-backing of the National GO…

President Biden just signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law

The bill will lower costs for families at the pharmacy, at the gas pump, and on their monthly energy bills and insurance premiums.   Team, President Biden just signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law, not long after Democrats in the Senate overcame hours of cynical GOP obstructi…

I am personally asking before tonight's deadline>>

We’re falling behind.   I wanted to reach out quickly before our end-of-month fundraising deadline tonight at midnight. CNN called my seat one of the top 10 most likely to flip and then Mitch McConnell said he was “all-in in Colorado” after endorsing my opponent. In a landscape where…

Colorado’s Senate seat is in play, folks

The experts agree: Michael’s Senate seat is vulnerable.   Pundits, the media, and experts all agree: Michael’s Senate seat is one of the most vulnerable in the country this November. Not only did Mitch McConnell describe Michael’s opponent as his “perfect candidate,” but the National…

I cannot do this alone

Micheal’s MAGA opponent is against the Inflation Reduction Act

The bill will lower costs for families at the pharmacy, at the gas pump, and on their monthly energy bills and insurance premiums.   The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act was a victory for Coloradans and the American people over corporate special interests and the status quo. So…

underestimated

I was underestimated, so I know doubting your opponents is a mistake.   When I became a Senator, I was underestimated. The GOP called me the “accidental Senator” and doubted my ability to deliver for Coloradans and get re-elected, but I’ve been delivering for Colorado ever since. Now…
