I'm asking from the heart

For two long, painful years—with control of both houses of Congress and the White House—Republicans have voted over and over again against the best interests of all Americans.

Dear MoveOn member,

For two long, painful years—with control of both houses of Congress and the White House—Republicans have voted over and over again against the best interests of all Americans.

They have done everything they can to accommodate the ambitions of Donald Trump and to make sure that the pockets of their billionaire donors are lined with cash. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell even recently suggested cutting Social Security and Medicare to curb the mounting deficit brought on by their $1.5 trillion tax scam.1

Eddie, there's only one way to make sure that McConnell never has a chance to follow through on his dishonest and dangerous plan: We've got to end GOP control of Congress.

To help do just that, MoveOn is running its biggest midterm elections program EVER. I believe in MoveOn members. You have been with me on some of the most important fights of our generation these past two years. I fought with you in a historic Supreme Court fight earlier this month and stood with you just a week ago talking about the stakes of this election in Wisconsin. And I believe that if we join together and focus for these next eight days, we can make history.

With your help, MoveOn can reach out to tens of millions of potential voters in the coming days and make sure they get out to vote.

We have only eight days left. That's why I've locked arms with MoveOn members like you for this bring-it-on-home push, and that's why I'm asking you, from the heart:

Will you chip in just $3 right now so that MoveOn has the resources it needs to do its important work around the clock—from now until Election Day?

I know a bit about campaigns, and I know the financial resources required to get them right. This close to Election Day, every single donation matters: It can mean one more door knocked on, one more phone call made, one more ad purchased, and one more voter persuaded. And with so many of the critical races we must win in order to end GOP control of Congress on a knife's edge, each and every voter in each and every district matters.

And here's what I know to be true about MoveOn: It stretches each donated dollar as far as humanly possible.

Because the strength of MoveOn lies in its millions of members, the donation that you make right now will be magnified by fierce volunteer organizing in every single critical state and district in our nation.

Just last week, I met some incredible MoveOn volunteers in Wisconsin and was reminded once again just how critical MoveOn's work has been and will be in this election and the ones to come.

So I'm asking, Eddie: Will you help bring on home the win that we all need on Election Day by chipping in just $3 right now?

Yes! I'm in with you.

I believe that anything worth fighting for is a fight worth having.

Our health care is worth fighting for.

Immigrant rights are worth fighting for.

Keeping the air we breathe clean is worth fighting for.

Our children's education is worth fighting for.

Good jobs are worth fighting for.

Ending racism, sexism, antisemitism, and LGBTQ discrimination is worth fighting for.

Social Security and Medicare are worth fighting for.

The core values of our nation are worth fighting for. This is what's actually at stake in this election.

And that's why I'm so grateful to MoveOn members for once again stepping up to lead a transformational fight, taking to the streets and the phones and social media and primetime news with unmatched force and skill.

This pivotal midterm election is a fight for the best of who we are as a nation—and a fight for the very best of what we can become.

It's a chance for us to ask ourselves what we believe in and what we're willing to fight for.

And it's the moment for us to speak truth to power—through our own vote and by helping MoveOn mobilize every critical voter necessary to win on Election Day, end Republican dominance in Washington, and take our nation forward.

Please chip in $3 now to make this all possible.

I'm with you all the way, and I thank you for being on the front lines of this fight.

–Senator Kamala Harris

Will you support MoveOn's efforts to win this election? Michael Moore says, "MoveOn is working around the clock to help organize and turn out volunteers to get out the vote in November. I know that MoveOn members like you are moving heaven and earth to win this election. We're the majority. But we need to rise up. That's the only way out of this mess." Will you stand with MoveOn?
