A brutal blow to Trump's presidency?

In just 39 days, we have a chance to win an electoral victory that would derail Donald Trump's radical agenda. Here's how:

Dear MoveOn member,

In just 39 days, we have a chance to win an electoral victory that would derail Donald Trump's radical agenda.

Here's how: Tom Price—whom Donald Trump handpicked to lead the effort to take away health care from millions of Americans and decimate the Department of Health and Human Services—has resigned from his position in the House of Representatives to screw up our health care instead. Now, his seat is open.

And the special election to fill it has become the first major election of Trump's presidency. MoveOn members just voted overwhelmingly to help fill Price's seat with Democrat Jon Ossoff, an exciting young candidate who's been endorsed by Representative John Lewis and is running on a message of standing up to Trump and Republican attacks on health care.

Will you help Jon Ossoff win? If we can pull this off, it'll strike a blow to Donald Trump's agenda, embarrass Tom Price, and sow chaos in the Republican Congress, making Republicans worry that if they repeal the Affordable Care Act, a wave election will wipe them out come 2018.

When it comes to health care, Donald Trump, Tom Price, and their Republican backers in Congress are already in deep trouble.

After spending the February congressional recess literally hiding from their constituents, they've spent the first few weeks of March drafting a secret bill to take away health care from millions of Americans. Meanwhile, the Affordable Care Act, for the first time ever, is supported by a majority of Americans.

If we can win this election, it will make Republicans who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act think twice. And this is a very winnable election. Tom Price typically faced minimal opposition in his races, but now he's out of the picture. And his district doesn't like Trump. This past November, Trump did 20% worse there than Mitt Romney did in 2012. And Trump's popularity has only plummeted since then.

That's why MoveOn is making this race a priority this month. We're setting an ambitious goal to raise $250,000 this week for Ossoff to help him fight back against this right-wing attacks. Will you help out?

Ossoff is picking up more momentum every day. He's currently leading a very crowded field of candidates heading into the April 18 primary election. If no candidate gets 50% on April 18, then the top two candidates go on to a runoff in June.

A right-wing Super PAC is already running ads smearing Ossoff over his age. It's just the beginning of the right-wing onslaught to come. Republicans know what's at stake in this election and are running scared.

Winning this election—in a Republican-leaning district—would be a brutal blow to Trump's presidency. And every single Republican in Congress would take notice, no matter how conservative their district is. No one will feel safe if this district goes to a Democrat. A victory here has the potential to derail Trump's agenda in Congress and give Democrats a real shot at winning back the U.S. House in 2018.

Since the election, we've seen an outpouring of activism unlike any in our lifetimes. But the question is whether that resistance enthusiasm will carry over to critical upcoming elections. Let's help answer that question today.

Chip in $3 to support Jon Ossoff and help deal the Republicans their first major electoral defeat.

Thanks for all you do.
