    I'm sure many of you got this email from Bernie Sanders

    Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan issued a very dire warning this week. You need to see it:

    “If we lose the Senate, do you know who becomes chair of the Senate Budget Committee? A guy named Bernie Sanders. You ever heard of him?”

    You heard the man. Let’s take back the Senate.

    Four of our best opportunities to take back the Senate are in Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Each race is incredibly close. But if the Democratic nominees win, we will have a far more progressive Senate – and a majority to enact our progressive agenda.

    The final FEC fundraising deadline of the campaign is Wednesday at midnight. Split a contribution now between Catherine Cortez Masto, Maggie Hassan, Deborah Ross, and Katie McGinty before tomorrow’s deadline.

    How close are these races? The latest poll averages have Deborah Ross down by just two points in North Carolina. In Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto is up by two. Maggie Hassan is down by a little more than two points in New Hampshire. And in the tightest race of all, Katie McGinty is up by less than a half percent in Pennsylvania.

    Four Senate seats we need for a majority. Four dedicated leaders who could serve with Bernie Sanders. At most a two percent difference in the polls for every race.

    Your contributions can be the difference between victory and defeat in each of these elections. Small-dollar contributions from emails like this can push Catherine Cortez Masto, Deborah Ross, Maggie Hassan, and Katie McGinty over the top on election day.

    With tomorrow’s FINAL fundraising deadline for the FEC, the time is now for us to step up and help take back a Senate majority.

    Split a contribution between the campaigns of Catherine Cortez Masto, Deborah Ross, Maggie Hassan, and Katie McGinty before tomorrow’s deadline.

    You can make the difference in this election to take back a Senate majority. Thank you.

    In solidarity,

    Jeff Weaver
    Team Bernie

    3. From my quick research…

    Looks like Deborah Ross and Katie McGinty are Hill Shills.

      4. In what way?

      Before or after the primary?

        For Deborah, after her primary.

        For Katie, before and after.

          6. So what does that mean then?

          Are they solid progressives? Will they further progressive causes? People running on the Democratic ticket are going to voice support for the Democratic candidate for president. The real question is how they will legislate, will they champion progressive causes and block bad legislation? We need as many true progressives in Congress and the Senate as possible. We need that more than we need candidates who will assert Clinton is Judas Hitler Satan.

            7. …

            For voting, I’d vote for Debora. I just wouldn’t give any $$$.

            Katie on the other hand, wouldn’t get either. She’s been a Hill Shill since the Clinton White House. (maybe even before)

              8. It is then disappointing that "our revolution" is advocating for DLC'ers

              11. McGinty is deep in the pocket of the frackers.

              This Pennsylvanian will give her no money. Still debating about the vote, ’cause the alternative is Toomey. Either way, PA is just plain screwed.

    9. never again team jersey politics. each name, fine tooth comb.

    i trust DNC as far as i can throw them, and since it’s an intangible… they will never caucus to give Bernie the chair of that committee. and he’s already off their list of names for prospective slate for that chair.

    just a ruse to buy back team jersey politics. no sale. :(

    10. Sadly, this is not true.

    I called it days ago.  It is just more manipulation and deceit.

    When you hear people raising reasoned objections to Trump’s policies and appointments, odds are that you’re listening to the sort of thoughtful dissent that’s essential to any semblance of democracy, and it may be worth taking seriously. When you hear people criticizing Trump and his appointees for doing the same thing his rivals would have done, or his predecessors did, odds are that you’re getting the normal hypocrisy of partisan politics, and you can roll your eyes and stroll on. But when you hear people shrieking that Donald Trump is the illegitimate result of a one-night stand between Ming the Merciless and Cruella de Vil, that he cackles in Russian while barbecuing babies on a bonfire, that everyone who voted for him must be a card-carrying Nazi who hates the human race, or whatever other bit of over-the-top hate speech happens to be fashionable among the chattering classes at the moment—why, then, dear reader, you’re hearing a phenomenon as omnipresent and unmentionable in today’s America as sex was in Victorian England. You’re hearing the voice of class bigotry: the hate that dare not speak its name.  -- John Michael Greer

      13. Is that the embassy cat?

      Edit: "Bite me" was suggested by Deadpool. What I meant to say is "Hey Deadpool!!!  Bite me."

    12. We have two dems in the senate now.

    Not sure I like either, but they seem to track pretty liberal.

    Sorry, can’t help this time around…..

    14. Won't happen. Not now.

    There’s just too much Clinton-shit going on.
