By any means necessary

I don't kid myself: My reelection campaign—and the upcoming fights in the Senate—are likely to be uglier and nastier than anything we've seen before.

Dear MoveOn member,

When the Republicans tried to make me sit down and shut up, they meant it. They're drooling over the idea of beating me when I run again for Senate next year.

Last month, a new right-wing Super PAC launched a "Dump Elizabeth Warren" campaign—a $10 million effort with "just one single purpose—the absolute, immediate, and total defeat of Elizabeth Warren by any means necessary."

By any means necessary. Those words make me shudder. We don’t even know who’s funding this group—and we saw what those kinds of threats meant for Democratic candidates in 2016.

That's why, Eddie, I need to ask for your help. MoveOn members like you have always been a powerfully important part of my team, and I need you now to help me fight back. Will you chip in $3 to my reelection campaign to help me continue to stand up to powerful interests and right-wing Super PACs and keep fighting for working families?

Click here to chip in $3 to my reelection campaign for U.S. Senate, and I will continue fighting for you and working families every single day.

I don't kid myself: My reelection campaign—and the upcoming fights in the Senate—are likely to be uglier and nastier than anything we’ve seen before.

But if Republicans and their billionaire friends think that they can scare us away from a fight with threats and by spending a lot of money saying mean things about me (they actually stuck my face on a dumpster—yes, really!), they've got another think coming.

Together, we’ll fight harder than ever—for students, for seniors, for immigrants, for Muslims, for women, for people who are LGBTQ, for workers, for the sick, for the disabled, and for our planet. And we're ready to show Trump and the GOP that when they run this country for the benefit of the rich and powerful, the American people will hold them accountable.

I know that I've got a gigantic target on my back; the list of those who want me to be quiet is long—Trump, Mitch McConnell, Wall Street, the Koch brothers, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the NRA .... And I know that they’re planning to spend outrageous amounts of money against me in the weeks and months ahead.

And if we aren't ready to fight back—and fight back hard—it could be too late.

MoveOn members like you are the heart of the resistance. Will you pitch in $3 to help my 2018 Senate reelection campaign?

Yes, Elizabeth! I'm in! I'll chip in to help you win.

From one persistent organizer to another, I thank you for all you do.

—Senator Elizabeth Warren
