A triple whammy for climate change

  Folks —  When it comes to taking action on climate change, Democrats are crushing it. In the last year alone, we’ve passed three different pieces of legislation that are going to make a real difference in tackling the climate crisis. The first, of course, is the Inflation Reduction …

[BREAKING NEWS] CNN just ranked my seat in the top 10 most likely to flip

  CNN updated their ranking of the top 10 Senate seats most likely to flip. And my seat is back on the list. I’m running a people-powered campaign against a candidate who writes his campaign personal checks when grassroots enthusiasm is low and will have the National GOP’s fundraisin…

The Respect for Marriage Act

  Hi folks — Ever since the Supreme Court’s disastrous decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, we’ve been fighting to restore reproductive freedom across the nation and stop further attacks. But the Supreme Court’s right-wing majority has made it clear their attack on our rights won’t end w…

National Republicans are pouring money into WA state

  Team, We just got word that the National Republican Senatorial Committee is planning a six-figure ad buy in Washington state to attack Patty Murray and prop up their MAGA Republican candidate, Tiffany Smiley. The GOP has endless amounts of money to pour into states like Washington t…

This is a really big deal

  We did it, folks! Over the weekend, Senate Democrats passed the Inflation Reduction Act, and I won’t mince words here: It’s a really big deal. This legislation won’t just fight inflation, lower health care costs, and reduce our nation’s deficit by making corporations pay their fair …

It's been a busy couple of weeks

  Hi folks! We have a deal! Senate Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act is here and it is a game changer. With $369 BILLION — yes, billion with a “B” — in climate and clean energy provisions, it will be the most significant climate change legislation in our lifetimes. But that’s not all…

Less than 100 days until Election Day

  Team —  100 Days. Yesterday marked just 100 days until Election Day, when voters in Colorado and across the country will decide whether Democrats hold on to our razor-thin majority. Right now, pundits are calling the Senate a “toss-up” — so in this final, critical stretch before Ele…

I was never "cool" growing up
