When I heard Jeff was running a marathon for his birthday…

Hey, Molly here from Team Merkley.

Today's a big day—it's Senator Merkley's 65th birthday! And the one-week countdown to his birthday 26.2-mile marathon.

Will you help him break his birthday goal of $65,000 for the Blue Wave Marathon Fund? We're at $52,571 so far—almost there!

Chip in now to the Blue Wave Marathon Fund

I have to be honest with you. When Senator Merkley told me that he was planning to run a marathon for his 65th birthday, well, I just got tired thinking about it.

And then, when he told me that he wanted to raise $65,000 for the Blue Wave Project, well, that's when I got excited. Will you chip in and help Jeff raise $65,000 to save the Senate?

After all, we need to win more Democratic seats in the U.S. Senate so that we can make progress on the critical priorities facing our nation—and ensure that Mitch McConnell doesn't take us backwards even further.

Donate now and let's make Jeff's birthday extra-special by smashing his goal!
