Fwd: new survey for you

Friend, I wanted to quickly follow up to make sure you got the chance to share your thoughts in the survey I sent around (see below). With the GOP primary fast approaching and less than 100 days to go before Election Day, our campaign is energized and on task. But in this pivotal final str…

New survey for you

Friend, Our nation is approaching a critical turning point – and the fates of millions all depend on whether we take decisive action right now. Just look at what’s at stake: Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are threatening to institute a nationwide ban on abortions i…

100

Friend, We are officially 100 days away from Election Day – when the fate of the Senate and our Democratic agenda will be decided. Truth be told, with Mitch McConnell only needing to flip one seat to take back control, we can’t afford for a single supporter to stay on the sid…

Fwd: A question for you

With a $2,117 shortfall before my end-of-month fundraising deadline (just hours away), I had to make sure you saw my previous message. We are operating with the most tenuous control of the Senate – where Mitch McConnell is shelling out seven figures at a time for ad buys to flip a single s…

A question for you

Friend, I have a simple question: If I told you $5 would make all the difference in ensuring we protect Democratic control of the Senate, would you donate? Because I promise, your grassroots support makes all the difference in our fight to keep this seat blue and stop Mitch …

Zero margin for error

With just over 100 days until Election Day, we’re on the cusp of closing the books on this month with a $6,253 shortfall. So Friend, in a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a contribution to help get us back on track – but first, let me say this: I am deeply appreciative of…

Time is of the essence

Friend, time is of the essence: We’re about to enter the final 100 days of the election, but my team told me we still need to raise another $10,000 from online donors before July ends to hit our ambitious monthly fundraising goal. That’s why I’m reaching out to you, Friend. I…

Overturning Roe was only the beginning

It’s happening, Friend. First, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump succeeded in installing Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe v. Wade – ending abortion care for more than 30 million Americans across dozens of states. Now, the GOP is going even further with its agenda, att…

A simple request

Friend, Mitch McConnell only needs to flip one seat to take back Senate control. Michael Steele, the former Chair of the RNC, says if McConnell succeeds his first action will be to eliminate the filibuster. That will allow the GOP to unleash an unrestrained, radical, dangerou…

I promise you: This will make an impact

Friend, Here’s the truth: If you make a donation of $5 today – before midnight – it will have a tremendous impact. I understand one donation may not sound like a lot in the context of a crucial race for the U.S. Senate, but please know this: When people like you step up by th…

I need you to know this

Friend, I need you to know this and take it to heart: I will never stop standing up to Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and their Republican allies who are hell-bent on undermining our democracy and threatening Americans’ fundamental rights – including the right to cast a vote i…

A very important update (new ad)

Friend, I’m coming directly to you – one of this team’s most engaged grassroots supporters – with some important news: We launched a new TV ad highlighting the importance of protecting Democratic Senate control to stop Republicans from passing a nationwide abortion ban into l…

Big announcement

Friend, I wanted you to be among the first to know: We just launched a critical new ad about the need to protect every Senate vote for reproductive healthcare and freedom so we can prevent Mitch McConnell and the GOP from passing their nationwide abortion ban. This ad emphasi…

FWD: Really need your thoughts

Friend, I’m following up to make sure you saw the survey I sent around (see below). With Election Day fast approaching, our campaign has zero margin for error – which means I need all hands on deck to win. However, I’m still looking for another 14 members of this grassroots team to share t…

Really need your thoughts

Friend, We are at a critical moment for the future of our country: The fundamental civil and human rights of women evaporated when the conservative U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Justice Clarence Thomas signaled that precedents protecting same-sex marriage and…

Fwd: did you see this?

Did you see my email, Friend? I won’t sugarcoat it: Mitch McConnell and the GOP have made me a target for defeat, and their campaign committee has more than $45 million at their disposal to flip this critical seat red. This is not a drill. Grassroots supporters have been stepping up by the …

Your donation will protect Democratic control of the Senate

Friend, $5. If you donated that right now, it would make all the difference in our fight to keep this seat blue and protect Democratic control of the Senate. I know one donation may not sound like a lot, but think of it this way: When people like you step up by the thousands …

I really, really don't want to have to scale back our efforts – especially now

Friend, I need a moment to explain to you why — ahead of this important public FEC fundraising deadline — I simply cannot fall behind on my fundraising goals. Let me start with this, however: I realize we are in extremely troubling times for our country. The Supreme Court j…

The only way we can hold Trump and the GOP accountable

Friend: We are witnessing the power of Democratic majorities in Congress before our very eyes. If Republicans had been in charge, we would likely still be in the dark about a host of chilling details pertaining to the Jan. 6 insurrection and the GOP plot to overturn a free an…

Must keep this short

I must keep this short: We’re up against the most important FEC deadline of the campaign so far – and my team just told me we’re $10,500 short of where we need to be. Respectfully, I need the most engaged grassroots supporters to rush an emergency contribution ahead of this …

The loss of Roe is only the beginning

Friend, The U.S. Supreme Court just stripped women of their freedom to make their own private and personal healthcare decisions – and they handed that power to the government. American women no longer have the same control over their bodies as American men. Forgive me for …

The conservative-controlled Supreme Court just abandoned our civil rights

What just happened is sickening. Unconscionable. Friend, six conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices just betrayed their own promised commitment to legal precedent and eviscerated the freedom of women to make their own healthcare decisions. The Court’s decision is an endorse…

Big Oil's price gouging must stop

Friend, Try to wrap your head around this number: $35 billion – the amount of profit the top five oil companies hauled in during the first few months of this year. Compared to the same time last year, Big Oil’s profits have not merely doubled or tripled – they have quadrupled. We…

Humbly asking for your help to protect Democratic Senate control

Not what I expected

I hope you’ll forgive me for being so frank, but a report from my finance team left me feeling worried: We’re still $4,925 short of what we need to raise before our crucial mid-month fundraising deadline. Friend, I am respectfully asking for your donation to get us back on tr…

Democratic efforts to protect reproductive rights

Friend, Extremist Republican abortion bans – and the U.S. Supreme Court’s indication it will overturn Roe v. Wade – aren’t simply attacks on abortion and women’s healthcare more broadly. They are attacks on fundamental human rights and individual liberty. We have to fight the…

There's too much at stake to fall short

Inaction is complicity

Friend, I have a message for my colleagues in Congress: If the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, doesn't crystalize your sense of obligation to take action, then you are, in effect, putting guns above children. Columbine. Virginia Tech. Aurora. Sandy Hook. Charleston. Orlando. Las Veg…

Proud to accept your nomination

Friend, I just walked off the floor of the Connecticut Democratic Party convention, where I was proud to accept the party’s nomination for re-election to the U.S. Senate. Democrats can’t take a single seat for granted this year – if we do, we’ll hand the Senate right back to …
