Remember that empty chair?
At the Republican convention four years ago, folks thought it was pretty out there when my opponent decided to have an actor lecture an empty chair on stage.
But given who they're about to nominate for president, a stunt like that could rank pretty low on the list of strange and outrageous incidents we see this week in Cleveland.
Because this time, the Republicans are going to spend the week talking about building a wall on the Mexican border and banning people based on their religion. They're going to talk about policies that stack the deck even further in favor of millionaires and billionaires, while claiming to be in it for the little guy.
And if the thing four years ago with the chair was laughable, those ideas are dead serious -- as is the harm they would do if we let them get enacted.
So here's what I need from you: I need you to chip in $3 to Democrats right now to show the world that those values are not American values.
If you've saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.The Republicans will attack everything we stand for at their convention -- they'll also attack Hillary. They'll question her integrity and her character. They'll hurl insults at her and tell lies about her record. They'll drag her name through the mud, because that's the only way they'll convince anyone to vote for their nominee.

I know Hillary can take it. She won't back down from this fight. But I also know that in this moment, she needs her team. She needs you.
The Republican convention will show voters how wrong the GOP's ideas are for Americans -- and that Hillary is the president we need. My faith in Hillary has always been rewarded. Today, I'm asking you to show her and Democrats everywhere that you have faith in them, too.
If you're with them, chip in $3 now, before a single Republican takes the stage in Cleveland. Let's show the world what we stand for -- and who we stand with: Hillary, each other, and every American who still believes that in this country, all people are created equal:
