I wanted to make sure you received some key updates from my race that you may have missed.
⇒The New York Times recently called our race to unseat Valadao one of the “top ten to watch.”
. ⇒ Last month, Republicans sent Ivanka Trump to our district to headline a fundraiser for Valadao.
. ⇒ Despite financial support from Mike Pence, Kevin McCarthy, and now Ivanka Trump, our campaign outraised David Valadao last quarter, and we did so with low-dollar, grassroots support.
After being out-raised, we expect a fundraising surge from David Valadao and his special interest backers. And next week, we’re launching our first TV ad and we need $21,000 before Tuesday to make sure we can keep it on the air.
Devin Nunes is a disgrace and an embarrassment to California — and conservative think tank scholars agree. One even recently called for Devin Nunes to be expelled from Congress for hisshameful, potentially criminal behavior.
Norman Ornstein, American Enterprise Institute resident scholar
The facts are clear. Devin Nunes is guilty of:
Sabotaging the Russia investigation
Lying extensively in his memo on the FISA application
Disappearing the night before falsely claiming Obama spied on Trump
Leaking Senator Warner’s texts to Fox News
Creating his own website with actual fake news
Using political donations for fueling his private jet
Betraying Central Valley farmers time and again for special interests
And so much more.
We need to make our voices heard and tell Congress that Devin Nunes’ flagrant corruption and wrongdoing makes him unfit to serve in the House of Representatives.
TJ Cox isn’t the only one who believes in affordable healthcare, common sense gun legislation, and protecting the rights of women. Democrats throughout California — from Turlock down to Encinitas — are fighting for these same values.
And if we’re going to succeed in creating change in Washington, we need to work as a team to get there. This our chance!
Trump just announced plans to spend $12 billion to bail out farmers — including those in the Central Valley — from the devastation his trade war has created. That’s right — he’s sending in relief for a problem he caused but refuses to fix.
Trump and his team may be touting this bailout as an act of heroism, but this policy is nothing more than a band-aid on a deep wound that Trump should have never created in the first place.
Central Valley farmers don’t need bailouts, they need overseas markets to the sell their products in. There are no winners in a trade war, and until Trump ends these disastrous tariffs — our farmers will continue to suffer.

In order to ensure health care access for all, address massive wealth and income inequality, curb the influence of dark money in our politics, enact true immigration reform, and strive for environmental justice, we must win seats like California’s 21st district. Especially when they’re held by special-interest backed politicians like David Valadao.
I’m not shying away from my values. That’s why a Paul Ryan-linked super PAC and national Republicans are gearing up to spend millions to defeat me. But that’s also why The New York Times is calling our race one of the “top ten to watch.” Because despite these hurdles, our people-powered campaign is proving time and again that we can make history by flipping this district for the first time in decades.
While the powers that be in Washington work to divide us and secure their financial interests at the expense of working families — we can’t relent in our fight for fairness for everyone.
Thank you for your support,
TJ Cox is a local engineer, community development leader, and Democrat running to unseat Republican David Valadao in CA-21.

*** Alex Padilla has been endorsed for Secretary of State by the CDP ***
The fallout from President Trump’s disastrous meeting with Vladimir Putin continues as election security is again front and center in the news. It’s clear the president and Republicans in Congress are not committed to stopping future attacks on our elections. And that’s why we must elect more Democratic Secretaries of State in November.
Our Secretaries are already leading the way to secure our elections, even without action from Trump. Take a look at the top stories from this week and please share with your friends.
