Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren showed last night how great she is at articulating what we, as progressives, stand for. We need her to keep doing that in the Senate. But she needs our help to get there. Can you chip in to help her win?

Dear MoveOn member,

"Corporations are not people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die. And that matters, because we don't run this country for corporations, we run it for people." 

That line from Elizabeth Warren brought the house down last night in Charlotte, and it's obvious why. Elizabeth has a way of putting into words exactly what we, as progressives, believe in.

Now it's up to all of us to make sure that Elizabeth can continue to speak out so powerfully for our values as a senator. 

She's locked in one of the closest races in the country, but Scott Brown has $2 million more in the bank than she does. She needs our help in these final nine weeks to close that gap and win. Can you chip in $5?

Elizabeth is one of a kind, but she's hardly the only amazing progressive in a tight race for Senate this year.

In Wisconsin, Tammy Baldwin is running against governor-turned-lobbyist Tommy Thompson. Tammy's fought for working families her whole career—just this year, she introduced a bill opposing immunity for big banks that defrauded homeowners and another to implement the Buffett Rule.

And in Connecticut, Chris Murphy—a tireless champion for campaign finance reform who's fought to get corporate money out of politics—is running against multi-millionaire Linda McMahon. Chris was one of the biggest supporters of the public option during the health care fight and now he needs our help winning in November.

Elizabeth, Tammy, and Chris wouldn't just be three more Democratic votes in the Senate—they'd be three progressive leaders. All three are in toss-up races and they need our help. Can you chip in $5?

Thanks for all you do.
