Received this fundraising e-mail from Senator Tammy Baldwin (D. WI) in support of Senator Jeff Merkley's (D. OR) 2014 re-election campaign:
Senator Jeff Merkley, my friend and colleague from Oregon, is one of the best allies a progressive like me could ask for.

He’s fighting for the same things we are here in Wisconsin -- and because of that, the special interests are going to be all over him in 2014. But the same fighting spirit we showed in 2012 can help progressives like Jeff fight back now. And I’m writing to you because I need you to stand with him just like you stood with me.

We must keep guys like Jeff fighting for progressive values in the Senate. Can you contribute $5 or more today to help him out?


Karl Rove and his allies will stop at nothing to stop progressives from winning. I should know -- last year, I was on the receiving end of some of their worst attacks.

The special interests don’t want a system where everyone pays their fair share of taxes. They don’t care about fixing the mortgage crisis or reforming Wall Street for the benefit of Main Street. And they certainly don’t have any interest in ending the gridlock in Washington.

But Jeff does. He is a champion for progress -- and that’s going to make him a huge target.

Grassroots support is going to be critical for Jeff -- and we know that building the network he’ll need has to start right now. Chip in $5 or more to get Jeff started!


Thank you.
