I’m reaching out because in a few days we’re facing a critical fundraising deadline and it’s coming at a time when our campaign is just a bit short of hitting our goals for the month. I’m hoping you’ll give me a moment to explain how important this is to all the work we’re doing.
First, the incredible response to these emails covers the modest cost of keeping the lights on for our campaign. It’s not much since our re-election is a few years away. But your donations keep me off the phone and fundraising so that I can focus on doing my job.
That’s even more important now that I’ve announced I will no longer accept checks from corporate PACs. I’m going to need your help more than ever.
Second, it feels like every single day brings a new attack on the values we share. From assaults on our immigrant communities to attempts to take away our health care, and everything in between, we have to be vigilant in defending the cause of justice and equality.
Your donations allow me to focus on doing my job and help us build a coalition of people strong enough to challenge the Administration’s radical agenda in Washington. So I’m asking:
Can I count on you to make a contribution of $3 to help hit our fundraising goals before Monday’s deadline?
As always, I’m genuinely grateful for everything you do.
You are the primary reason I’m serving the people of California at such a critical moment in our nation’s history.
Thanks for everything,
