I am asking you to contribute to Bill Nelson

I'm worried about Bill Nelson's Senate race down in Florida. Let me explain why:

DemocratsJoin us.
We need to protect Bill Nelson's Senate seat down in Florida. Let me explain why:
  1. Trump won the state in 2016 -- and there's no such a thing as an easy election in Florida.
  2. Bill's opponent, two-term Florida governor Rick Scott, has a history of bankrolling his own political campaigns and has already poured $14 million of his own money into this Senate race.
  3. Bill's campaign is being outspent 5-to-1 and Rick Scott and his Republican allies have already spent $25 million on television ads.
But one thing gives me hope that he can win re-election, and that's Democratic supporters like you. Together we've overcome incredible odds to win critical races in places like Virginia, Alabama, and western Pennsylvania -- and I know we can do it again in Florida.

Will you make a $10 donation today to help re-elect Bill Nelson and elect Democrats nationwide in November?

Winning in Florida takes hard work. It's exactly why the RNC invested heavily there during the 2016 election cycle. Once Trump became their presidential nominee, the party handed him dozens of field offices to help organize the state. That organizing base will work to Rick Scott's advantage, and you better bet he's going to fight tooth and nail for this Senate seat and the GOP will stop at nothing to help him win.

Right now, we have to do the same for Bill -- he won't be able to win without your support.

If we come together now, we can help re-elect Bill to the Senate and protect this Democratic seat. By supporting his campaign today, we can make critical investments in the organizing and get-out-the-vote effort it will take to win this race.

This can't wait until October. Make your first $10 donation today to help re-elect Bill Nelson and Democrats nationwide this year.

Thanks for supporting Bill's campaign and Democrats up and down the ballot in this critical moment.

Tom

Tom Perez
Chair
Democratic National Committee

P.S. We cannot take back the Senate if we lose Florida -- the math just doesn't add up. Make a $10 contribution to defend Bill Nelson's Senate seat in Florida and elect Democrats nationwide this year.

Here's who we're nominating

Yesterday, voters in Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin cast their ballots in their states' primary elections, nominating some incredible women candidates.

DemocratsJoin us.
Yesterday, voters in Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, and Wisconsin cast their ballots in their states' primary elections, nominating some incredible women candidates. Here are some of the key takeaways:
  • In Vermont, Christine Hallquist made history by being the first openly transgender woman to claim victory as a major party's gubernatorial candidate.
  • First-time candidate Jahana Hayes, who was the 2016 National Teacher of the Year, won her primary in Connecticut's 5th District and is poised to become the first black woman to represent Connecticut in Congress.
  • Ilhan Omar was nominated in Minnesota's 5th District and could become the first Somali-American elected to Congress.
  • Senators Amy Klobuchar (MN) and Tammy Baldwin (WI) were nominated for re-election.
  • Senator Tina Smith, the former lieutenant governor of Minnesota, secured the Democratic nomination ahead of a special election in November to serve the remainder of her term.
  • Democratic voter turnout outpaced that of Republicans in all four states' gubernatorial races, including historic turnout in Minnesota and Wisconsin -- two key states where we'll need to compete in November.
After last night's results, women make up about half of the Democratic nominees for Senate, House, and governor in races without a Democratic incumbent -- a historically high number that could lead to historic levels of women serving in Congress next year. Our party is also nominating a historic number of candidates of color and LGBTQ candidates this year, many of whom are running for office for the first time.

We have the energy and excitement on our side -- in Democratic House primaries this year so far, voter turnout is more than 80 percent higher than the 2014 midterm elections, meaning Democrats are fired up and ready to win in 2018.

Together we are proving that we have a diverse coalition, we have the candidates, we have the voters, and we have the momentum. But we can't let up now -- not even for a second. So I need to ask:

Can I count on you to make your first $3 contribution of 2018? Our candidates are counting on your support right now to help them win in November.

Winning elections across the country isn't going to happen unless we make it happen -- and it isn't going to be easy. Republicans are determined to hold onto their majorities and continue taking our country backwards. That's why it's so critical that we elect Democrats at all levels of government to help restore integrity and sanity back to our nation's politics.

You don't need me to tell you how high the stakes are this November. Currently, there are more than 100 GOP-held districts that are more competitive than PA-18 -- where we flipped our first House seat of this election cycle. Democrats need to win at least 23 of those districts in order to take back the House.

There are also 36 states that will choose governors this year, including 26 that are under Republican control. Democrats have a real shot at taking back governors' mansions in states that haven't been considered competitive in years.

Women, people of color, LGBTQ, and first-time candidates are running for office like never before this year -- many of them are motivated to run because of the horrendous agenda coming from the Trump administration.

Our candidates are ready to provide a check on this president and the congressional Republicans who enable him. But the only way they'll get the chance to do that is if we all step up to support them right now.

Can I count on you to chip in $3 today to elect Democrats in all 50 states? We have to invest in these campaigns right now if we want to win nationwide -- we can't wait until September or October.

Thanks for your support,

Tom

Tom Perez
Chair
Democratic National Committee

P.S. Where our party stands after last night puts us in a great position ahead of the midterm elections. We have an incredibly diverse slate of candidates ready to win in November, but first they are going to need your help. Contribute $3 if you're ready to elect Democrats nationwide.

Donate monthly → Win in November → Repeat

When we organize nationwide and communicate the values that we stand for, Democrats win elections.

DemocratsJoin us.
Election Day 2018 is 86 days from today -- and we're going to spend each and every one of those days fighting to reclaim Congress, governorships, and statehouses across the country.

But the work we're doing now is about more than just this coming Election Day. It's about making sure that every state party in the country is trained and given the resources they need to be successful over the long term. It's about building relationships with voters in communities that will last beyond this election cycle. It's about building a bench of Democratic candidates that can fundamentally transform our country for years to come.

That's why today, I'm asking you to make a monthly sustaining contribution to the Democratic Party -- because it's the single best way to build our party for the long term.

As we head into this critical final stretch, will you become a monthly sustaining donor to the Democratic Party right now? Your monthly gift will help keep building this powerful movement to take on Republicans and help Democrats win in 2018, 2020 and beyond.

This November 6th, we could take back control of Congress, flip state legislatures, governors' mansions, and local offices nationwide.

We're building, organizing, and fighting in and for every community, through long-term investments like:
  • The Every ZIP Code Counts program is an increased contribution of $10,000 per month to every state party to help them win local, statewide, and national elections in an election year that could be a turning point for America.
  • Organizing To Win trainings are an effort to support the talented individuals and organizations driving energy and power ahead of midterm elections. The DNC is offering free day-long Organize to Win Trainings to organizers across the country, offering insight, best practices and skill-building for electoral organizing. Most recently, the DNC hosted its first trainings in Minnesota and Utah, additional trainings will be in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and West Virginia, with more to be announced later this this summer.
  • The DNC Talent Bank is a centralized website where anyone interested in working on a campaign or for a state party can submit their resume to be considered for open positions this cycle and in future cycles. Campaigns and state parties are always looking for the next generation of leaders to lead them to victory, and through this program, we're helping candidates and state parties connect with good people on the ground to help with Get-Out-the-Vote efforts.
  • DNC Data Bootcamps help train campaign and state party staff across the country to deploy cutting-edge strategies and tactics to recruit volunteers, target voters, and better communicate to the public. Our past bootcamps have been attended by data directors and voter file managers from almost all 50 states! The DNC will continue to host these vital bootcamps in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections to ensure that all level of campaigns have the knowhow and ability to use their data efficiently and effectively.
Your monthly recurring donation will help make programs like these possible for months and years to come -- that's why your support is more important now than ever before.

Make your monthly contribution today and help Democrats keep building up the infrastructure needed to take back Congress this year and the White House in 2020.

Thank you for your support,

Tom

Automat: Sign up to get involved with your state party

When we organize nationwide and communicate the values that we stand for, Democrats win elections.
DemocratsJoin us.
Organizing at the local level is how we win elections. Sign up today if you're interested in getting involved with your state party.

The Democratic Party is no longer in the business of only organizing once every four years around a presidential election. Our new strategy is simple: when we organize 365 days a year, every year, we win elections from the school board to the Oval Office.

But that strategy only works if we have strong organizations at the state level -- and that starts with you in California. One of the best ways to elect Democrats up and down the ballot is by getting involved with your state party.

There's no time to waste between now and Election Day -- sign up today if you'd like to get involved with your state party. Our team will forward them your contact info, and they'll get in touch about opportunities to help our candidates in California.

I'M IN

State parties are on the front lines of training volunteers, registering voters, recruiting candidates, and delivering the Democratic Party's message of inclusion and opportunity.

Together we are building a movement to take on the GOP in all 50 states and elect Democrats who will fight for our values.

When we organize nationwide and communicate the values that we stand for, Democrats win elections -- and getting involved with your state party will help ensure Democrats mobilize a record number of voters by Election Day. Are you in?

Sign up today if you want to get involved with your state party.

Working together at the state level and empowering grassroots Democrats who will defend our values is how we will win in November.

Thanks for everything you do.

Tom

Tom Perez
Chair
Democratic National Committee

P.S. The most common question I get asked by my friends and family members is: "What can I do to get more involved in politics and make a difference?" I'll tell you the same thing I tell them: Sign up to get involved with your state party and make a difference in your community.
