Democrats across the country are facing serious challenges by extremist Republicans who want to take away a woman’s right to choose and privatize the most successful anti-poverty program in America – Social Security.
The only way we can beat them is if we get out the vote.
Since I was elected to the Senate two years ago, with the help of thousands of grassroots progressives (that's you - thank you!), we’ve been working to undo the damage done by decades of deregulation and Wall Street greed run amok.
While so many Americans are struggling to find work, it’s critical we elect Democrats to Congress who aren’t beholden to the big banks, insurance companies and oil companies. The last thing our country can afford is to revert to failed Republican trickle-down economics where millionaires and billionaires get all the special favors while middle-class families suffer.
Last week, I joined “feet on the street” canvasses and volunteer phone banks for Democratic candidates in Oregon. This week, I’ll do the same. Every vote matters this election and it’s up to us to drive every single progressive vote to the polls.
Whether you're in my home state of Oregon, or one of the 49 others, take a day, or two, or three - and commit to helping get out the vote. It's just a few hours that will make a difference for years to come.
Big special interests and oil billionaires are pouring millions into attack ads through front groups led by the likes of Karl Rove and former Senator Norm Coleman for one reason: to drive down voter turnout and help Republicans who will support policies that will line their pockets.
There's one thing standing between these secretly funded groups and their very own bought-and-paid-for Congress: you.
This election could mean the difference between handing power over to far right Republicans, or electing Democrats who will fight to improve the lives of working families. Just 6 days are left so let’s get to work on the phones and doors for your local Democratic candidate.
It's time to Get Out The Vote!
