On Tuesday, voters in Georgia's 6th Congressional District will head to the polls in the highest-profile election since November. Meanwhile in Washington, Trump and his allies are crafting a secret plan to take away health care from millions that could be passed any week now.
A victory by Jon Ossoff would send a powerful message to Washington and could save health care for millions. That's why this election is incredibly important. So we asked Jon to write a note to MoveOn members about why he's running and what he'll fight for if elected on Tuesday. Please give his message a look and chip in $9—or whatever you can afford—to help in the final sprint before Tuesday's election.

Dear MoveOn member,
Early this year, in the wake of Donald Trump's election, I decided that I couldn't sit on the sidelines. After talking with one of my mentors, civil rights hero Representative John Lewis, we launched an improbable campaign for Congress.
When we started this campaign, no one thought we could win. We weren’t even supposed to come close. But we’ve built incredible momentum—and now we’re just three days away from making HISTORY.
Here’s the thing: Donald Trump and Paul Ryan see our momentum too. They’re doing everything they can to crush our campaign.
Eddie, I need your help more than ever. I am proud to have earned MoveOn's endorsement through a vote of MoveOn members in Georgia's 6th District, and MoveOn members like you have helped power our campaign from the beginning. But right-wing Super PACs have made this the most expensive House race in history. We are TIED in the polls. And, with your help in these final days, we could win!
That's why I'm writing you directly, before my election in just three days, with a humble request:
This campaign isn’t about me, Eddie.
It’s about coming together to send a clear message about the type of leadership we want in Washington: accountable, transparent, and compassionate.
It’s about standing up for our progressive values and our belief that no matter who you are or where you come from, your voice ought to be heard.
And it's about proving that Americans everywhere—from New York City to Newt Gingrich's former district (the one I am competing for)—oppose this cynical, partisan, attack on health care.
If you believe that no American should needlessly suffer or die from preventable or treatable illness, then I need your support right now.
If you believe that no American should be unable to make ends meet because of out-of-control medical bills, then I need your support right now.
If you are dedicated, as I am, to defending Medicare and Medicaid, to ensuring that young people can stay on their family plan, to preventing discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions, to ensuring veterans swiftly get the care and benefits they’ve earned, and to defending Planned Parenthood, then I need you with me.
If you believe that NOW is the time to take on corruption and fraud and a system in Washington rigged for those with lobbyists and PACs and to fight back against "alternative facts" with the truth, then you can help make that happen by helping me give the people of Georgia's 6th District the sort of representation they want and deserve then we need to give it our all in the next three days. If we don’t, we’ll regret it forever.
So here's my humble request: Please donate whatever you can to my campaign. $9—or whatever you can afford—will make a big difference.
Thank you so much for your support. Together, we will win this.
Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your ongoing support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?
