This is a big moment. At midnight we’re facing the first FEC fundraising deadline since I was sworn in as California’s U.S. Senator. Let me explain why this matters:
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 allow me to focus on doing my job, not fundraising. That’s important.
Second, with Trump in the White House it feels like every single day brings a new attack on the values we share. From assaults on our immigrant communities, attempts to repeal Obamacare, and everything in between, we have to be vigilant in defending the cause of justice, equality, and tolerance that binds us together.
Your donations allow me to focus on doing my job and help us build a coalition of people strong enough to challenge Trump’s radical agenda in Washington. So I’m asking:
Can I count on you to make a contribution to help us hit our fundraising goals before tonight’s all-important FEC fundraising deadline?
As always, I’m deeply grateful for everything you do. Supporters like you are the primary reason I’m serving the people of California at such an important moment in our nation’s history.
U.S. Senator, California
