some good news, some bad news

  Team — I just got out of a meeting with my team to see just how big of an impact my opponent’s latest investment into his campaign will have on our race. National Republicans recently announced they were pouring millions into Virginia to fund a massive field operation for my Trump-e…

  Hi there — Yesterday, the Supreme Court announced they will hear a case challenging the Texas abortion ban on November 1st. This comes just a month after the Court’s right-wing majority declined to stop the egregious law from going into effect, banning all abortions in the state aft…

If we want to expand the Democratic Senate majority, we need to win Ohio

  Hello — In a minute, I’ll ask you to split a critical donation between John Hickenlooper and my campaign to flip Ohio’s open Senate seat blue. But first, let me explain why this race — and your donation — are so important today. Protecting our Democratic Senate majority is not enou…

Will you sign your name next to mine on our petition demanding that Congress pass voting rights legislation?

  After record voter turnout sent Democratic majorities to Washington, Republicans launched an all-out assault on the right to vote in states across the country. Donald Trump and his allies spread misinformation and lies — falsely claiming that the 2020 election was stolen. More than …

Humbly asking

  Hi there — Last fall, this team did the impossible: We flipped this seat and sent a Democratic trifecta to Washington for the first time in over a decade. That’s all thanks to your support. But as you know, our majority is razor-thin, so it’s important that we don’t get complacent n…

sincerely asking for $3

  Friends — I remember when I first launched my campaign for Senate more than 2 years ago. I wasn’t sure what to expect. One of my biggest concerns was whether or not we’d have the resources to win an expensive race with wild amounts of outside money spent to beat me. But then, minute…

The Hickenlooper Curve

  Hi there — When I was little, I was just about the worst baseball player Little League had ever seen. I was small, skinny, and younger than all of the other kids. And by the time I turned 12, I accepted the hard truth: that I would never be able to hit a ball. But my dad loved baseb…
