I need your help
I've never had any doubt in my mind about what it means to be a Democrat.
We're the party of everyday people in every zip code and from every background. We stand with working people who deserve a living wage. We fight to protect health care as a right that is guaranteed to every American. We demand that corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share.
But although our ideas are right and our values are just, we didn't motivate enough people to get to the polls in 2016. And because of that, our party suffered some heartbreaking defeats.
Today, that all changes. We're on the path back to standing up for every single American.
It's going to take all of us coming together to take back our country -- that's why I was proud to stand with Tom Perez and accept the job of Deputy Chair of the Democratic Party. If you're with us, pitch in $3 or more before midnight tonight to show you're ready to rebuild.
Our pledge to you is that the Democratic Party will leave no stone unturned. We're going to organize in all 50 states, all 3,143 counties. We will compete for every vote and give every Democratic voter a reason to show up at the ballot box.
Together, we're going to win back school boards, state legislatures, and Congress. And we'll beat Trump and take back the White House.
Tom and I know we can do it, because we've both seen what Democrats can accomplish when we work together towards a common goal.
But we don't have a person to spare or a moment to waste, so I need you to have some skin in the game. We're looking for 60,000 grassroots donations before the February deadline at midnight. Chip in $3 or more before then to help Democrats get ready for the fights ahead.
