Thank you

  John, More votes have come in from the general election, and though we ran a strong, people-powered campaign to Flip the 3rd, unfortunately we came up too short this time. Despite this result, I am so incredibly proud of the strength of this grassroots campaign. Thank you to everyon…

This election isn’t over

  John, First, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support you’ve shown me in my race to unseat Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler and give Southwest Washington a strong, reliable, independent voice for the people in Washington’s 3rd congressional district. …

It’s Election Day here in Southwest Washington!

  John, we made it: today is Election Day here in Southwest Washington! This is the moment we’ve been working so hard for over the past year, and all of your contributions — from donations to phone banking and other volunteer efforts — have made this the most competitive race in Washi…

It’s Election Eve

  It’s Election Eve, John! Tomorrow is finally Election Day, our opportunity to replace Republican career politician Jaime Herrera Beutler with an independent voice for the people: Carolyn Long. With your grassroots support, we’re going up against corporate and Republican PACs fueling…

In need of grassroots donations now more than ever

  John, as we speak, corporate and national Republican PACs are pouring thousands of dollars into Jaime Herrera Beutler’s campaign in the final hours before Election Day. Since October 15th, Herrera Beutler has received $91,000 from corporate PACs including Exxon Mobil, big insurance …

one last time

  John, Election Day is almost here, and I wanted to reach out one last time before votes are tallied and it’s all over. Ever since I first ran for Congress against Jaime Herrera Beutler in 2018, this has been a fight to put people over politics. When we narrowly lost, I decided to ru…

First, then, now

  John, We’re heading into the final day of our campaign to unseat career politician Jaime Herrera Beutler and elect Carolyn Long to Congress here in Washington’s 3rd district, so we’ll make this quick. FIRST: When Carolyn announced her rematch against Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler…

A representative who listens to and fights for you

  John, All too often, our opponent Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is silent on the issues facing her constituents and our country as a whole, leaving Washington’s 3rd district behind.  In an interview with the Seattle Times, Herrera Beutler just refused to answer questions about the top …

Last minute support

  Hi John, First, let me just say thank you so much for your support ahead of last night’s deadline. While we didn’t reach our goal, we came so close. With only two more days until Election Day, we’re running low on the resources we need to power our Get Out the Vote operation. So, I’…

Last email (we promise!)

  John, we’re hours away from our FINAL fundraising deadline of the 2020 election and still short of our goal, so we’re asking one last time: can you rush a donation right now to support Carolyn Long for Congress and help Flip the 3rd this Tuesday? DONATE NOW Paid for b…

Reaching out one last time

  Hi John, I’m guessing you’re getting a lot of emails right now, but I wanted to reach out one last time before our final end-of-month fundraising deadline of this campaign. With only three days left in this race for Washington’s 3rd congressional district, I wanted to remind you of …

re: our budget

  Hey John, I just got off the phone with our finance director, and it turns out we’re $13,496 short of our October fundraising goal — and the deadline is tonight at 9 PM. This is our FINAL end-of-month deadline of the 2020 election, and what we raise by then will determine our budget…

  John — This is it: tomorrow is our final and most important fundraising deadline of this entire campaign. And we hate to say it, but we’re still tracking behind on our goal. We can’t afford to fall short tomorrow, not with just four days left to Get Out the Vote in support of Caroly…

Tomorrow’s deadline

  Hi John, I’ll make this quick. Tomorrow is October 31st, which means it’s our very last end-of-month fundraising deadline of this campaign before Election Day. I’ve been impressed and inspired at every turn by the energy people like you have shown in our race to replace Jaime Herrer…

She can’t defend her record

  John, it’s become apparent why our opponent, Jaime Herrera Beutler, has failed to hold a public town hall in nearly four years: because she can’t defend her own record. In an interview with The Seattle Times, Herrera Beutler refused to answer a question about her support for the Tru…

  Here's the deal, John: FACT: Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler has bragged more than 80 times about voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would cut health care coverage for tens of millions of people and destroy protections for those with preexisting conditions. FACT: Herrera Beu…

Five days left

  John — Our race to elect Carolyn Long to represent the 3rd congressional district in Congress is “the most expensive race in Washington’s 2020 election,” according to KNKX. It’s also one of the most competitive, with Carolyn in a statistical tie with her Republican opponent in the l…

re: low cash on hand

  Hey John, Quick campaign update: We’re now just six days out from Election Day (I know, I can hardly believe it myself!) and I’ll be honest — we’re running dangerously low on cash. We just launched a new ad, and if we’re going to be able to keep it on air and spread Carolyn’s messag…

It's time for honest leadership.

Flip Southwest Washington's 3rd District

  John, We’re in the fight of our lives to flip the Senate and the White House in this election — but just as important, we need to protect and expand our strong Democratic majority in the U.S. House. Carolyn Long is working hard to flip Southwest Washington’s 3rd District blue this N…

7 days

  John, Here we are: just one week away from Election Day. That means we only have seven days left to Get Out the Vote across Washington’s 3rd district, reach undecided voters, and do what it takes to give Southwest Washingtonians a real voice for the people in Congress. It’s been a l…

This is personal to me

  John, We are in the fight for our lives in these final 8 days of this election, with our health care on the chopping block like never before. Without taking a dime from corporate PACs, I’m counting on people like you to help fuel our campaign in this final week. But before I ask if …

These numbers speak for themselves

  Hey John! Today is special for two reasons here on the Carolyn Long campaign: we’re now just over a week out from Election Day, and this evening we’re holding our 60th town hall at Joe’s Place Farm at 5:30 PM! That’s right. Carolyn will have held 60 town halls since 2018, because sh…

Our opponent’s latest misleading ad

They sold us out

  John, Not only has Jaime Herrera Beutler bragged more than 80 times about voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act during her ten years in Congress — she now supports President Trump and the GOP’s lawsuit to destroy our current health care law in the Supreme Court, a case that will …

Low cash on hand

  $1.93 million. That’s how much money our Republican opponent, Jaime Herrera Beutler, has taken from corporate PACs, John. While our grassroots campaign to elect Carolyn Long was able to successfully outraise Herrera Beutler last quarter, she undoubtedly has more cash on hand than we…

In case you missed it

  John, Yesterday was the one and only debate between me and my Republican opponent, Jaime Herrera Beutler, in the 2020 race for Washington’s 3rd district. As expected, we heard a lot of lies and misinformation from my opponent about her record and my own. I’m somebody who believes i…

re: Carolyn’s anti-corruption plan

  John, One reason why Carolyn decided to run for Congress is because she sees how Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler has been bought by corporate donors. Instead of fighting for the people of Washington’s 3rd district, Herrera Beutler is fighting for the corporate PACs who’ve poured over $1.…

Our opponent has taken nearly $1.7 million from corporate PACs
