An extraordinary moment (and that's saying a lot)

It's unbelievable, Eddie. Within just hours of unveiling my sweeping, new anti-corruption legislation:

It's unbelievable, Eddie.

Within just hours of unveiling my sweeping, new anti-corruption legislation yesterday:

  • Donald Trump's campaign manager was found guilty of tax fraud for money he laundered while working for Ukrainian politicians.
  • His lawyer pleaded guilty to tax evasion and to a campaign finance law violation for paying off Stormy Daniels.
  • And Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter—one of Donald Trump's first supporters in the House—was indicted by the Department of Justice for misusing $250,000 of campaign money for personal expenses.

We're going to fight our hearts out in the days, weeks, and months ahead to pass my anti-corruption bill into law and to hold our lawmakers accountable to the people. Yesterday proved just how powerfully important this fight will be.

But there's something that you can do right this minute to take on this corrupt machine: You can help Duncan Hunter's Democratic opponent—Ammar Campa-Najjar—so we can kick one more corrupt politician out of office and get one seat closer to taking back the House in 2018.

Will you chip in $3 now to help Ammar Campa-Najjar beat indicted Congressman Duncan Hunter?

Yes, I'll chip in right now to Ammar's campaign.

Ammar's fight for working families isn't just campaign rhetoric—it's a lifetime commitment to the people and country he loves. Ammar worked as a grassroots organizer for President Obama's 2012 re-election campaign and then went on to work in the White House and the Department of Labor.

While Duncan Hunter spends his time in Washington running up his campaign credit card and giving special favors to powerful interests, Ammar's been hard at work, listening to working people who feel abandoned.

Ammar has pledged not to take any corporate PAC money in his campaign for Congress, so he's not going to be bought by the giant corporations. And he's ready to join our fight to support working families and hold CEOs on Wall Street accountable.

We need to ban American lobbying for foreign governments, tighten the Swiss cheese definition of lobbying, and do a zillion other things to make this government work for the people. I'm ready to have that fight—and I hope you are too.

But right now, we can send a message that we're ready to fight by sending Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar to Congress in 2018.

Click here now to chip in $3—or whatever you can afford—to help defeat Duncan Hunter, elect Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar, and end GOP control of the House this November.

Thanks for being a part of this.
