Honor RBG's Legacy: Protect the Court - Defend the Future!

As I stopped by the Supreme Court of the United States yesterday to honor the life and legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, congressional Republicans were lining up to back Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump's power play.

The hastiness of this nomination, with only 40 days to go until Election Day, not only devalues the court, but actively endangers the American people.

Republican leadership's willingness to exploit every loophole, attack every truth, and insult common decency has passed the point of no return.

Mitch McConnell blocked President Obama's nomination to the court in 2017, saying that it was too close to the November election. But that was in March – more than seven months before the election!

Now they're going back on their word and abusing their power in an attempt to seize control of the Supreme Court before they lose in November. Help me send Mitch McConnell and my Republican opponent a clear message: we will fight to protect the court and defend the future!

We're just a few days out from the biggest deadline of the most important election of our lifetime, and we've got to give it everything we've got! Contribute now to fuel this fight.

Until now, we've been able to count on cooler heads in our court system to rein in Trump and McConnell's worst ideas. Their rush to confirm Trump's nominee – whoever that may be – opens up a Pandora's Box of attacks on our most vulnerable communities and our most sacred rights:

The Affordable Care Act is in danger.

Protections for pre-existing conditions are in danger.

Reproductive rights are in danger.

Freedom of the press is in danger.

Our clean air and water are in danger.

The list goes on and on.

That's why we've got to elect a strong, principled Democratic majority to honor the legacy of progressive champions like Justice Ginsburg and pass bold reforms to strengthen our democratic values.

Chip in now to build our historic movement to restore our democracy!
