A progressive champion in a swing seat -- and he's under attack

Congressman Peter DeFazio is facing the toughest fight of his career. And I'm asking you dig deep right now and pitch in $3 to help him.

Four things you need to know about Peter DeFazio:

  1. He's a progressive champion, who has fought for just about every issue we care about. Peter DeFazio co-founded the Congressional Progressive Caucus with Bernie Sanders, and he's never stopped fighting for us.

  2. After months of dodging questions, his opponent has finally revealed himself. Alek Skarlatos says he would eliminate the minimum wage, defund Planned Parenthood, overturn the Affordable Care Act, and cancel all future COVID relief for families and small businesses. And as for overturning Roe v. Wade, he says, we "should go for it".

  3. In the last three months, Alek Skarlatos out-fundraised Peter DeFazio by over a million dollars. It's pouring in from all across the country—84% from out-of-state—generated by right-wing allies like Sen. Ted Cruz.

  4. This is a very close race. Oregon's Fourth was the closest in the country between Trump and Clinton in 2016. Trump can't win in Oregon, but his allies think they can steal this congressional seat with giant piles of dark money.

We need to ensure Peter gets the grassroots support he needs to win. It's going to all come down to the wire.

Please donate $3 right now, because these final days are going to be critical for Peter's campaign.

Donald Trump's political legacy ends right here, and that means defeating all of his allies.
