In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a donation to my campaign. But I hope you’ll give me a chance to explain why this is so important — especially with our end-of-month fundraising deadline rapidly approaching:
Earlier this month, news broke that my previous opponent David Valadao filed to run against me. Then last week, we got word that Valadao’s very first planned campaign event will be a fundraising swing through Washington DC to court the same special interest donors who have bankrolled him for years. That’s one way to kick off a campaign, I guess.
Here’s the truth: we’re not just taking on David Valadao in this race. We’re also up against the fossil fuel industry, Big Pharma, and the NRA. These powerful interests spent hundreds of thousands to keep Valadao in office. By the looks of things, that won’t change much in 2020.
This is our first end-of-month deadline since David Valadao filed to run. If we’re going to win this race, we need to keep pace with the special interest cash coming in behind him.
If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:
I take a great deal of pride in the fact that the majority of the donations we receive come in on emails just like this one. It means I won’t ever compromise on our shared values — whether it’s ensuring health care access for all, fighting for fair wages, or taking bold action on climate change.
But it also means I’m relying on your support to keep this movement going. So please know that your support — chipping in on emails like this one — is what’s keeping us in this race.
I can’t thank you enough for being on our team.
