The world is on fire

I'm busy these days, and that's because the world is on fire. Where to start? There's Donald Trump's humanitarian crisis at the border. There's Trump's corrupt Cabinet. There's the Republican Congress, still trying to rip people's health care away.

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm busy these days, and that's because the world is on fire. Where to start?

There's Donald Trump's humanitarian crisis at the border. There's Trump's corrupt Cabinet. There's the Republican Congress, still trying to rip people's health care away.

So I'm busy fighting like hell for the families separated by Trump, and I'm busy working my heart out to help elect Democrats—because the only way to slam the brakes on Trump's agenda is for Democrats to take back the House and the Senate.

The days blur together, and I'm a little short on sleep. But whenever I need a jolt of energy to keep me going, I think about everyone across the country who's with me in this fight.

It's going to take all of us working together, as a team, to put out the flames.

If we all suit up and fight back, Democrats can win big in November. And I'm talking BIG.

I'm up for re-election in November. Powerful special interests will pour millions of dollars into nasty ads trying to tear me down. We'll win only if we build the biggest grassroots army that Massachusetts has ever seen.

But we can't win only in Massachusetts—the stakes are too high, and our national emergency is too dire. With your support and the hard work of MoveOn, we'll invest in Democrats up and down the ballot to help deliver a blue wave that'll wash Trump-enabling Republicans out of power across the country.

Click here to chip in $3, or whatever makes sense for you right now, to my campaign and MoveOn's efforts to elect progressives this fall and help make sure that we win this fight.

(As an added bonus, when you chip in to my campaign through MoveOn, you'll also be entered to win an all-expenses-paid trip to meet with me one-on-one on the campaign trail or in Washington, D.C.!)

You've heard the pundits say that we have a fighting chance of taking back the House. But here's what's really exciting (and I get up on my tiptoes just thinking about it): We could take back the Senate, too.

A Democratic Senate would stop rubber-stamping Trump's unqualified nominees and stop stacking the courts with judges who work for giant corporations, not the American people.

The path to take back the Senate is a lot narrower, and I'll be honest, Eddie: It's going to be an uphill slog.

But it's possible. The numbers could work—but only if our terrific Democratic candidates have the resources to go up against big Republican Super PACs, the Wall Street bankers, and all of the powerful special interests whose bottom line depends on keeping Republicans in power.

In short, Eddie? It's going to take a massive movement. And I'm fighting like hell for it. Will you join me? When you chip in, you'll be entered in a contest to fly out and meet me, one-on-one.

Click here to chip in $3 to support our re-election campaign and MoveOn's efforts to shore up progressive Democrats in tough races across the country. You'll also be entered to win a trip to meet me, one-on-one.

We don't have big corporate special interests on our side like the Republicans do, but we have you, Eddie—and with you in the fight, I like our chances.

Thanks for all you do.

–Elizabeth Warren
