If we're going to get our country back on track...
For folks in my state, and the Virginia economy, affordable health care and strengthened Medicaid are critical. But if it were up to Trump and his allies in Congress, the Affordable Care Act would be gone and Medicaid would be gutted.
In my administration, we believe that if you work hard, you should be able to put food on the table and even save a little. But across the country, Republican legislatures and governors continue to give handouts to the wealthy, and some have even lowered the minimum wage.
In Virginia, even before President Trump pulled out of the Paris accord, I began the process of carbon reduction unilaterally. But most Republicans refuse to even acknowledge simple scientific facts.
On issue after issue, the gap between what the majority of Americans want and what Republicans in Washington and state capitols across the country are doing is wider than it has ever been.
So if we're going to get our country back on the right track, we need to replace Republicans at every level of office with Democrats who will fight for the values that most Americans believe in.
I know we can do it. I've seen the energy and passion that millions of Americans have put into standing up to Trump and the GOP on everything from Trump's Muslim ban to his deportation raids to health care repeal.
The next step is to turn our activism into votes, but we need your help to make it happen. Before the big fundraising deadline at midnight, chip in $3 or more to help Democrats win.
