This is exactly what’s wrong in our democracy. Some politicians pay attention to polls instead of people. Candidates make political calculations based off of fear instead of facts.
Now we face a big test. The refrain we hear from the pundits is that, by taking a courageous stand, Beto may have shot his own campaign in the foot. They think that our big ideas will sink us.
We can prove them wrong right now by showing a big surge in our online fundraising before our official FEC deadline. Can you make a contribution to Beto right now to say you’re proud to support a candidate who says what he believes and fights for it?

In a time of endless triangulation, 30-second TV ads and tired one-liners, the American people are ready for courageous leadership. If you agree, we need your help today before our big FEC deadline:
