I am taking on Elon Musk. Add your name to join me.

Our democracy is a lot more complicated than rocket ships or electric cars. Friends - If you've been on Twitter over the past few weeks, you probably know exactly what this email is all about. Since Elon Musk's takeover, the company has been in complete disarray. Over half of its workers have bee…

I’m humbly asking

Friends, it's official: our critical Georgia Senate race is heading to a runoff. With the entire GOP establishment behind my opponent, Herschel Walker, I can't keep up this momentum and defend my seat without your immediate support. That's why I'm humbly asking: Will you split $5 or more right n…

My thoughts on Tuesday's results, and an ask for $5 to help Raphael Warnock in Georgia

After Tuesday, Republicans and their super PACs are going to do and spend whatever it takes to win in Georgia, and we cannot let that happen. Friends - In just a moment, I'm going to share with you my thoughts about Tuesday's elections, and then ask you to split a $5 contribution to help Rev. Rap…

This is it, team

It’s extremely likely that this race will determine control of the Senate. Team - Before polls open in Wisconsin tomorrow morning, I want to be very clear: Unlike Ron Johnson, I am not relying on a bunch of billionaire donors and corporate PACs to get us the resources we need to win this election…

Team: We're just a few hours away from our October end-of-month fundraising deadline, and we're short of where we need to be. Will you consider making a contribution to stand with Ed before midnight?

10/31 meeting notes

Friends - I just got off a meeting with our fundraising team and I wanted to make sure you were in the loop. As you know, our October fundraising deadline ends tonight at midnight. At the start of this month our fundraising team set a goal that we needed to hit to ensure our campaign has the res…

Not the news we wanted to share today

This is NOT the news we wanted to share today, team — but we need to be honest with you. Right now, we're projected to fall short of our October digital fundraising goals, and have just over 24 hours left to get back on track. Our team ran the numbers: If we receive 132 more donations over email…

Pls let me explain

BREAKING: alarming new polling information

This news just broke — a brand new poll has just a fraction of a percentage point between me and my radical, right-wing opponent, Don Bolduc. Maggie Hassan: 47.6% Don Bolduc: 47.1% RUSH $5 » To make matters worse, our fundraising has fallen off a cliff this week, and we’re making massive budget …

Friends - Here’s a spooky thought. Right now, while activists, scientists, and communities of all kinds are working their hardest to address a global climate crisis, oil companies are making record profits. Right now, while working families are dealing with the rising cost of living, fossil fuel…

How do I put this...

Friends - I’m not sure how to put this. Yesterday’s mid-month deadline wasn’t what we had hoped. We have some real catching up to do if we want to hit our goal by the end of the month — when the press, the super PACs, the fossil fuel lobby, and everyone else will be looking to see if our campaig…

All the emails

Friends - I know it can be a lot to get emails from political campaigns like ours in your inbox every week (I know because I get them too!) But there’s a reason we send them. Emails like these are how our campaign reaches our supporters and raises the resources we need. That’s because we rely on…

The honest truth

Like we've always said, grassroots support from supporters like you is the only way the movement we've built together can grow and win. Here's the honest truth, team: If everyone who reads this email chipped in $3 before midnight tomorrow, we'd BREEZE past our September fundraising goals. In fact…

Friends, One day. We have only one day left until our quarterly FEC fundraising deadline. One day until we are legally required to publicly report how much money we've raised, and how many grassroots donors we have. One day until the far-right super PACs, the fossil fuel lobby, the press, and ev…

Without you, we could lose

I cannot win this race alone. Friends - I am writing today to humbly ask if you can make a $5 contribution to help flip Wisconsin's Senate seat and expand the Democratic majority. Flipping Wisconsin's Senate seat this November is not a given. It's going to take an incredible amount of work to mak…

$3. What does that amount of money mean to you? Think about it, and let us ask: If you knew your $3 contribution today would help Ed Markey organize and build support for our agenda nationwide, wouldn't that be worth it? If you knew your $3 would mean being able to help our progressive allies fi…

Real quick, before tonight's midnight deadline
