We knew this day would come

Well, we knew this day would come:

Mitch McConnell has taken another step shattering the Senate to pack the courts with right-wing ideologues.

First, it was an all-out confirmation blockade, refusing to confirm any Obama nominees to the DC Circuit, often called the nation's second-most important court.

Then, of course, there was the unprecedented theft of a Supreme Court seat. Then using the "nuclear option" to ram through confirmation of a Supreme Court justice with little debate. And now the nuclear option again, this time to enable him to dramatically increase the rate at which Trump nominees get confirmed, with little scrutiny and virtually no debate.

If historians look back wondering who broke America, the answer very clearly will be Mitch McConnell. And that's why it's critical that we fire him as majority leader, put Democrats back in charge, and then fix the Senate that McConnell and the Republicans have so badly damaged.

Please donate right now and let's win in 2020.

We must double down on the historic blue wave of 2018. We must win my race in Oregon, and then carry that momentum from coast to coast.

I'm running for re-election in 2020 to be part of that blue wave. And I'm counting on your grassroots support to fuel this campaign.

The Koch Brothers and their network of big-money backers came after me hard in my last campaign. I'm counting on your support to overcome them. Please donate today.
