Dear MoveOn member,
Elizabeth Warren is already proving to be the progressive Senate leader so many MoveOn members were counting on when we got behind her campaign in 2011. She hasn't wasted any time taking on the big banks and standing up against any cuts to Social Security benefits.
MoveOn members helped propel Elizabeth to the Senate by raising more than $1 million for her campaign—and now we've got a chance to double down on her leadership and send another progressive leader to the Senate from Massachusetts: Ed Markey. He's running in the Democratic primary for the special election to fill Secretary of State John Kerry's seat in just three weeks.
As a member of Congress, Ed Markey has been a national leader on progressive issues. He's been a fierce defender of Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Obamacare, and a strong champion of a woman's right to make her own decisions about her reproductive health—and now MoveOn members have endorsed his campaign for the U.S. Senate.
Can you pitch in $5 to Ed's campaign right now—before tonight's critical FEC deadline—and send Elizabeth Warren an ally in the U.S. Senate?
Ian from Somerville, MA:
The choice here is clear: Rep. Markey is the only candidate in this race who has been a consistent progressive advocate for health care, the environment, reproductive rights, LGBT equality, and a responsible U.S. foreign policy.
Lorna from Amherst, MA:
Cathy from Natick, MA:We want a senator who will work with Elizabeth Warren and will support progressive causes and women's rights (...)
Rep. Markey has been my congressman for the 19 years I have lived in his district. He is THE leader on climate change in Washington.
Thanks for all you do.
