*** No candidate for FCC District 3 has been endorsed by the FCDCC ***

We Stand with Miguel Arias for Fresno City Council!

“Trustee Arias has been a champion for Fresno City College and the 35,000 students we serve. His leadership has been critical as we have expanded our services to veterans, Dreamers and addressed food insecurity while keeping a focus on student outcomes.” -Dr. Carole Goldsmith

“Miguel understands the needs our small businesses have and he has the experience to make City Hall more supportive of small business needs.” -Dora Westerlund

“Miguel helped us build Gaston Middle School and is leading the way for a new college campus across from our beloved Gaston. He has the ability to bring results to our community.” -Gail Gaston

“Miguel is one of the most the capable leaders our community has to offer. His authentic commitment to our neediest residents and neighborhoods is unquestionable.” -Sarah Reyes

We stand with Miguel Arias because he has stood with us. Miguel has been a strong supporter of women throughout his 20 years in public service. Both behind the scenes and publicly, Miguel has provided encouragement and support to move women and our issues forward. As a dedicated son and father, he has always understood the importance of equality for all. But he can’t win this race without your support. Please contact his campaign if you would like to volunteer, if you live in the district and would like a lawn sign, and please make a contribution to the campaign.

They’re trying to stop us

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

John is under attack — and so is the campaign you’ve helped us build.

Billionaire supporters of Antonio Villaraigosa have already spent $8.5 million on ads to stop our momentum, and we know they have millions more in the bank ready to go.

These special interests know that when voters actually learn about John and hear his vision for California, the choice is clear.

This is urgent. We need your support now to break through the noise and make sure voters know why John is the leader we need.

Will you rush a donation to help us fight back and get out the vote? Chip in right now, before it’s too late.

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $5 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $25 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in $50 »

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: Chip in another amount »

This campaign is growing stronger every day as voters learn more about John.

Just last week, The Sacramento Bee endorsed John, where they talked about the “guts” he’s shown during his time as treasurer and previously controller, and called him “the best-equipped candidate for the economy to come.”

And earlier this week, John won a decisive victory in a statewide debate, where he was the only candidate to show a command of the issues at play in California.

If we keep it up, there’s a clear path forward for this campaign — that’s why the opposition is spending so much to stop us.

Don’t let these billionaires and independent expenditure groups buy this election. Help John push forward in the final weeks before the primary by rushing your donation now.

Thanks for having John’s back,

Preston Elliott
Campaign Manager
John Chiang for Governor

Please join me in the fight for Medicare for All

*** No candidate for U.S. Senate has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Every year, 45,000 Americans die from a lack of access to healthcare. Health insurance provides access to crucial services, but it comes at a cost. Those who can’t afford it are more likely to receive substandard care or suffer from undiagnosed conditions.

Even though California is the 5th largest economy in the world, it leaves far too many Californians behind, forcing them to make an impossible choice: paying for basic necessities or for healthcare.

I support single-payer healthcare because I believe that every family — regardless of who you are or where you come from — deserves to have quality healthcare. It’s a universal right, not the exclusive privilege of the elite and wealthy.

If you agree, please watch this video and join me in the fight for Medicare for All:

In 2015, California’s Medicaid expansion cut the number of uninsured Californians almost in half. Now, proposed federal budget cuts threaten to undo that incredible progress.

It’s time for D.C. Democrats to stop playing defense on healthcare and go on the offense for working families who can’t currently afford it. Cost should never be a barrier to quality care.

Everyone, regardless of economic background deserves access to quality healthcare. Now is the time for change. Join me in the fight for Medicare for All.

Thanks,

Kevin

CDP Congressional Candidates Need Our Support

CDP

This is urgent: Our CDP-endorsed candidates for Congress are just weeks away from the June primary, and they’re counting on our support today to ensure they finish strong on Ju‌ne 5.

From Jessica Morse in CA-04 to Ammar Campa-Najjar in CA-50, our eight endorsed candidates are up against some of the most corrupt, backwards thinking Republicans in Congress. And each one of their races is crucial to turning Congress blue this fall.

Republicans and their far-right super PACs will spend millions to protect their congressional clones here in California. Our party can fight back and win — but only if grassroots supporters like you step up tod‌ay.

Will you chip in $20.18 or more so we can make sure our CDP-endorsed candidates finish strong in June and take back Congress for Democrats this fall?

We’ve already hired more than 20 organizers to make crucial voter contact in these battleground districts — and we’re supporting our field team with an extensive social media program.

But with the first vote-by-mail ballots already sent out and the GOP’s dark money pouring into these districts, we need to double down on our support in this final stretch.

There will only be a blue wave here in California if we, the people, power it.

Chip in $20.18 or more right now, and we’ll put it to work supporting our CDP-endorsed candidates who will take back Congress this fall.

Democratically Yours,

Eric C. Bauman, Chair
California Democratic Party
