Friend,What EMILY's List apparently doesn't want people to realize is that Hanabusa is running neck and neck in the primary, against visionary and progressive Democratic Senator Brian Schatz, who has been endorsed by everyone from the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund to the Sierra Club to MoveOn members to Hawai'i's largest public sector union, among others. Needless to say, Schatz is fully engaged in fighting against the GOP's war on women, and isn't going to be enabling Mitch McConnell.
The GOP is desperate -- just look at them flirting with Scott Brown as he decides whether or not to run against Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire.
And now that we are less than a year out, the races are heating up. Latest polls show things tightening up for our candidates; this is when they need every ounce of our support. Kay Hagan is in a close race in North Carolina and Colleen Hanabusa is running neck and neck in Hawai'i. We cannot risk losing the Senate to Republicans and hearing the words, "Majority Leader Mitch McConnell."
Donate to Jeanne, Kay, and Colleen to ensure they are in Washington to protect us from the GOP War on Women.
Now is the time when EMILY's List can make the difference between a winning campaign and a losing one. We need you to step up in order to ensure Jeanne Shaheen, Kay Hagan, and Colleen Hanabusa fighting for us in Washington.
And with Republicans in the Senate offering up a 20-week abortion ban, just imagine what they will try to do if they have control.
Give directly to our Senate candidates to make sure they can fight for our rights in Congress. Donate today!

It's curious that EMILY's List would lump the North Carolina and New Hampshire races, where Democratic Senators may be vulnerable to Republican challengers, with the Hawai'i race, where a progressive Democratic Senator is being primaried by an EMILY's List backed stooge of Big Pharma. EMILY's List may have an agenda of electing more women, regardless of whether or not they're the best candidates, but it ought to pursue it openly. But framing Hanabusa's race as a battle against the GOP and Mitch McConnell is despicably dishonest. Support Hagan and Shaheen, but don't do so by supporting EMILY's List. And if you want to support the progressive Democrat in the Hawai'i Senate race, help incumbent Senator Brian Schatz.
