The new Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, is implementing dangerous operational changes at the Postal Service that are causing serious mail delivery delays.

This is dangerous -- Americans depend on the USPS to communicate with loved ones, for paychecks, to vote by mail, and to receive vital prescription medications.

Veterans are particularly vulnerable to mail delays:

About 80% of the VA's prescriptions are filled by mail
Roughly 330,000 veterans receive prescription deliveries from the VA every day
Deliveries that used to take three to five days are now reportedly taking weeks
Over 142,000 New Mexicans who served in the military and who are eligible for health care through the VA could be affected

This isn't an understatement: Their lives are at risk.

Our veterans, our elections, and Americans all over deserve better leadership than this. If you can, will you chip in to the Southwest Leadership Fund to help elect Democrats who will work to save the Postal Service?

DeJoy's actions can be traced all the way back to the source: President Trump.

DeJoy is a major Trump donor and a Trump appointee. And after months of attacking the integrity of voting by mail, Trump admitted that he's withholding critical funding for the Postal Service to hurt the delivery of ballots when Americans are expected to vote by mail in record numbers.

Our democracy only works with free and fair elections. This November, we must elect Democrats who are committed to upholding our democratic values and protecting voting rights. If you can, chip in today.

Democrats are working to get to the bottom of this. House Democrats are calling on DeJoy to testify before Congress, and I joined my colleagues in the Senate in demanding a stop to the operational changes at the Postal Service.

But the fact is Trump is trying to interfere with the election.

We need to be even more focused on supporting and electing Democrats this November to make sure Trump's attacks don't work. If you can, chip in to the Southwest Leadership Fund today.

Thank you,
