Sen. Gary Peters (D-Michigan)

Remember election night in 2016?

The midwest blue wall was supposed to save us.

We were supposed to win in Michigan.

And then... it didn't happen. When we lost Michigan, we lost the White House.

In 2020, it's probably going to come down to Michigan again.

Only this time, it won't just be the White House at stake. Control of the US Senate is at stake too.

My friend, partner, and ally Senator Gary Peters is one of only two Democrats running for re-election in a state that Donald Trump won.

And Gary really needs our help.

Here's the bad news: His right-wing opponent has been propped up by Donald Trump and a rogue's gallery of corporate special interests. He's raised $19 million so far—outraising Senator Peters four straight quarters in a row.

Here's the good news: Senator Peters has led in ten straight polls this year.

​But you know what's going to happen next, right? ​His opponent is going to take that warchest to the airwaves with a campaign of attack ads​ ​trying to tear down Gary.

​And that's before the​ ​right wing, billionaire-funded corporate Super PACs get involved​. They could launch tens of millions of dollars of virtually anonymous ads smearing Gary and his record.

That's where we come in. We have to help Gary respond to that onslaught of vicious attack ads. We have to help Gary win​.

Gary's campaign is organizing the grassroots in every corner of Michigan. He's doing it right. But we have to have his back. Donate $18 right now and help Gary keep up the fight.

And don't forget: When you donate to Gary, your dollars are doing double-duty. Every vote for Gary Peters is a vote for Joe Biden in Michigan, where every single vote counts.

When we tune in on election night 2020, let's make sure that Michigan goes our way. That's how we're going to Ditch Mitch, Dump Trump, and Save America.
