Donald Trump's hand-picked candidate

Donald Trump and Republican leadership have been crystal clear since February. They are spending more time and money than ever in Oregon, attacking our progressive values in an attempt to take me out and elect a right-wing extremist to Congress.

And they've got someone all picked out: a hardcore Trump loyalist, ready to back this president's worst impulses: turning our public lands over to industrial polluters, selling our elections out to special interests, taking away our health care, blocking common sense gun reforms, and giving away tax cuts to billionaires while working families fall further and further behind.

Here's why they're so eager: they think they have a shot in November because our district is one of the most politically diverse congressional districts in the nation; Clinton only won by less than 500 votes.

And they think they can buy their way to a win. Polluters, special interests and billionaires are lining up to write huge checks; they're desperate to replace me.

Let's show them what they're up against. Chip in $3 now to fuel the fight!

Here's the funny thing: their list of attacks "against" me is just a list of the things we're fighting for.

  • A Green New Deal that implements bold steps to combat climate change;

  • An infrastructure plan that de-fossilizes transportation and boosts our economy to rebuild our country;

  • Affordable, universal health care and working to lower prescription drug costs;

  • Common sense immigration reform with a new Marshall Plan for key countries in Latin America, and an end to the Trump administration's blatant human rights abuses at the border;

  • Holding Donald Trump accountable for his profiteering, abuse of power, and contempt for the rule of law.

Our opponents know that right now, our people-powered movement is fighting like never before for a government that works for everyone, not just special interests and millionaires. That's why they'll do everything in their power to attack me, lie about my positions, and divide us to weaken our movement. But I know that you'll be by my side and that your vote can't be bought or manipulated!

Are you with me? Contribute now to build the movement and defend our democracy!

Your involvement and support makes all of the difference.
