Last email before the deadline

Stabenow Hi friend, We have just hours left before our May deadline. As of right now, we’re still 321 contributions short of our goal of finding 1000 donations before the end of the month. Can you contribute any amount right now and help me kick off my 2022 efforts? We can't get complacent.…

not what I hoped

Stabenow Friend, a few days ago I asked you to join my 2022 midterm efforts by becoming one of our first 1000 founding donors. I’ll be honest -- given everything that's on the line, the response hasn’t been what I’d hoped for. Friend, we already know the Michigan GOP is going to do everythi…

we can’t phone it in, friend

Stabenow Friend, We all worked incredibly hard to win our Democratic majorities and send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House. Democrats put in the work and we won big. But the simple truth is we don’t have the luxury of getting complacent. There's too much on the line for us to p…

it's so fragile, friend

Stabenow Friend, From passing the American Rescue Plan to leading the COVID recovery, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Congress are showing what happens when Democrats win. We get things done for working families. We've accomplished so much, but there are warning signs that progress is fragil…

Help me welcome President Biden back to Michigan

About Liz Cheney

Stabenow Friend, Today, House Republicans stripped Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney of her leadership role for standing up to Donald Trump’s lies about a stolen election. Let’s be clear — Congresswoman Cheney and I don’t agree about much. In fact, she voted with Donald Trump nearly 93% pe…

Do you have a second before I talk with my team?

Stabenow Friend, I've been home this week talking to folks around the state about their priorities heading into the summer. The conversations have been incredible and I've scheduled a Zoom to download everything I heard with my team when I get back to D.C. Before we meet, I wanted to chec…

We did it

Stabenow Friend, I wanted to share some fantastic news. We hit our April online fundraising goal! Here’s why that’s so important: Recently, Michigan Republicans introduced dozens of bills to make voting harder in Michigan. They saw what happens when Democrats turn out as we did in 2020: w…

Georgia and Michigan

Stabenow Friend, By now you’ve heard about Republican efforts to take away our freedom to vote. It’s not just happening in Michigan and Georgia, there are now voter suppression bills in over 40 states. Republicans are working overtime to undermine American Democracy ahead of next year’s m…

A HUGE update in the fight for Voting Rights

Stabenow Friend, This week, 3 dozen major Michigan corporations joined together to speak out against shameless attempts by Michigan Republicans to restrict your freedom to vote. It’s a powerful statement and we’re proud to have the support of these business leaders in this fight. Will you…

your input needed on health care

Will you join me in standing up for Michigan's voting rights?

Stabenow Friend, This is a fragile moment for American Democracy. After Donald Trump pushed the big lie that the 2020 election was stolen, Republicans started doubling down on voter suppression tactics across the country. That's especially true here, where the Michigan GOP recently introd…

Not looking good

Stabenow This is not the email I wanted to send today, friend. But we’re less than 24 hours from the end of the first quarter and we’re short of our goal by a whopping $15,000. I’m afraid that if this grassroots team doesn’t step up, we’re going to fall short of our first fundraising benc…

Help me fight for our Democracy

Stabenow Friend, I've said it over and over again since November -- we're in nothing less than a fight for the future of our Democracy. From Michigan to Georgia, Republicans are following Donald Trump's playbook and trying to make it harder to vote. They saw what happens in places like Mi…

FW: Republicans are trying to restrict our right to vote

Stabenow Friend, Earlier this week, I urged you to join me in standing up to Republicans trying to suppress voting in our country. I have an urgent update: this week, the Michigan GOP introduced 39 bills that would restrict voting rights here in Michigan. Friend, In 2018, citizens across …

It was that close, friend

Stabenow In 2018 and 2020, Michigan Democrats delivered major wins across our state. Because we put in the work, Gary Peters won. His victory was critical for Democrats winning back control of the Senate. Think about it -- without Gary, President Biden’s American Rescue plan wouldn’t have…

Stabenow Friend, In 2020 Michigan Democrats knocked it out of the park. Just think about what we accomplished together: ✅ Sent Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House ✅ Re-elected Gary Peters and took back the U.S. Senate ✅ Defended our Majority in the U.S. House ✅ Elected a Democr…

Marjorie Taylor Greene must be condemned

It's time for bold action to end the pandemic

One last ask, friend

Don't let Donald Trump and Republicans steal Michigan's election

Stabenow Friend, Let’s be clear. In 2020, Michigan voters spoke loud and clear, choosing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris by a more than 154,000 vote margin. But Donald Trump and other Republicans are trying to undermine Michigan’s election results. The Board of State Canvassers has a legal o…
