It was just a few years ago that I was sitting in the living room of my friend, Elizabeth Warren, encouraging her to run for the Senate.
We had become close after Elizabeth helped my office secure more than $20 billion in relief for California homeowners from the Wall Street banks that created the 2008 financial crisis.
At a time when few were willing to stand up to Wall Street, she was fearless and stood with us when it mattered most — and the rest is history.
Eight years later, Elizabeth is running for re-election. And according to the latest polls, she is “no sure bet” to win. Radical Republicans in the same mold as Trump are already planning to run against her — and we simply cannot afford to lose her leadership in the Senate. That’s why I’m asking:
In these uncertain times, when our civil rights are under constant attack by an administration that seeks to impose its radical agenda, we need champions in the U.S. Senate who will be fearless for the voiceless and vulnerable.
That’s Elizabeth Warren. No one is more fearless or more ready for the fights we face than she is. Elizabeth is always willing to run into the fire on behalf of working people — fighting to ensure a level playing field and an economy that works for everyone.
She is leading the resistance to Trump’s radical attacks on immigrants, refugees, communities of color, and women. Losing her voice would be devastating to everything we’re working so hard to defeat in Washington.
The truth is I don’t know what the next four years under this administration will look like, but I know we can’t win the fights ahead of us without Elizabeth’s strong, passionate, and progressive voice. That’s why I’m asking you to step up today.
