re: Trump's map
In this final sprint to Election Day, we're counting on you more than ever. Pitch in $3 to help elect Hillary and Democrats up and down the ticket in every state.
This morning, Donald Trump's campaign sent reporters a map of battleground states and said that the states "colored red are states that we can safely assume will vote for Trump." Take a look:
In a typical presidential election, they might have a good point. But this election is far from typical -- and we're not leaving anything on the field.
In just the past week alone, we've started making major investments in a handful of these supposedly "safe Trump" states. This isn't just about running up the scoreboard for Hillary (although they will help her win by a large enough margin to put Donald's absurd claims about a "rigged" election to rest for good). We're making these investments now because we have a huge opportunity to elect Democrats all the way down the ballot.
We can win back our majorities in both the Senate and House. We can make serious gains in state legislatures that are just a few years from starting the next round of congressional redistricting. We can build up Democratic infrastructures in red states that will bolster our candidates for years.
But we can't take resources away from the places we know we need to win the White House. So if we're going to keep these states in play, we're going to need to raise more money than we're currently on pace to raise. Can you chip in $3 or more right now to help us expand the map?
